Our first glimpse into the “new” Breitling is the Navitimer 8 collection, launched with much fanfare a few weeks ago, as part of a worldwide road show. This includes a 41mm time-and-date model, a day-date, a Valjoux 7750-based chronograph, a worldtimer, and, the flagship model, a chronograph with the in-house caliber B01 movement. I had the chance to get my hands on the collection for a while last week, particularly that Navitimer 8 B01 Chronograph Replica Watches and came away with a few distinct impressions.
The new Cheap Breitling Navitimer 8 Chronograph represents a stark departure for Breitling pilot’s watches, so different from what we’re used to seeing, it’s a little jarring. There’s no slide rule or scale of any kind on the dial, the rotating bezel is very minimalist, with only a subtle arrow that can be set opposite the minute hand to track elapsed time. There’s also a lot of open space on the dial and the Breitling logo has been simplified. Gone is the winged “B” we’re used to, and there’s no extraneous text beyond the Breitling name in a sans serif font.
This dial design, while appearing perhaps a little generic, is actually fairly true to the dials of those Best Breitling Replica Watches board instruments, right down to the font used for the numerals, the triangles and small ticks on the minute track that extend into the dial, and the five-minute numerals between the hour markers and the track. Hands are faceted daggers with ample swaths of SuperLuminova paint.
The 316L steel, rose gold, or DLC “Blacksteel” cases of the new chronograph are 43mm in diameter, downright restrained compared to Fake Breitling Watches of the recent past, made even more wearable by fairly short curved-down lugs. The coin edge grip of the bezel is also reminiscent of the bezels of the vintage instruments and slopes down and away, giving a more svelte appearance than, say, the squared-off bezel of the standard Navitimer 01. Pump pushers and a fairly big crown flank the right side of the watch, all sealed up enough to guarantee a healthy 100 meters of water resistance.
There are two main versions of the Breitling Replica Watches For Sale – the B01 and the Valjoux, or standard, version. These are, of course, differentiated by the movements that drive them and will be recognizable, as such, by distinct visual characteristics. The B01 version uses the Breitling in-house B01 caliber, a well-proven column wheel movement with 70 hours of power reserve. The watch has a 3-6-9 subdial layout and chronographs with this movement will always have contrasting dials, in black and white or bronze and white. The Navitimer 8 B01 also has a case with a mix of matte and polished surfaces and a display caseback. These watches will be offered on either a crocodile strap or a metal bracelet.
