Buying guide: 5 milestone Breitling replica watches
Breitling was founded in 1884 in Saint-Imier in the Bernese Jura by Leon Breitling, and from the beginning, which specialized in chronographs. After a few years, in 1915 the company introduced the first wristwatch chronograph (all functions controlled by the crown), while this design was refined by separating the stop / start function of commissioning 1923 zero (combination of crown and monopusher 2 ‘o clock).
Launched in 1941, the Breitling was based on a patent document Breitling introduced in 1940: patent number 217012 protection granted to a wristwatch-style instrument with a circular rule calculation. In 1941, this design was a step further by adding the second button at 4 ‘o clock to reset the chronograph. The shape of the chronograph had solidified.
This new watch attracted many sports fans and industry, and technical appreciate their special characteristics, which make their job much easier. Later versions of the Chronomat with different dials and cases were the first ancestors of legendary Breitling Navitimer.This ingenious system makes it quick and relatively easy to perform several measurements and mathematical operations, for example, converting speeds or distances from one unit of measurement to another, multiplication, division and multiplication cross. A special feature of this watch is a counter 45 minutes elapsed – a detail well received by football fans. The replica watch shown here contains Venus caliber 175. Compared to my other watches, it is lightweight and sits around the wrist flat which makes me very comfortable to wear.
Do not be fooled: the name of this watch, which was registered as a trademark in 1955, has nothing to do with the Navy. Bogged down with paper and pencil, while in flight could be at least partially eliminated.The Breitling Navitimer, which debuted in 1952, was designed to help pilots coordinate time and navigation: it was equipped with calculating functions. Ads describe this multifunctional device containing the manual winding caliber Venus 178, as an “instrument board staff.” Since its introduction, the Navitimer has undergone several changes, especially in its box and gauges are housed, ie manual winding, manual winding with date or automatic winding, but no one has manipulated its most distinctive feature: its circular slide rule.
The adventure began in 1965 when the two companies, along with Buren and Dubois Depraz Watch, signed a contract to develop the clock; the company called Project 99. Buren was taken the supplier and the movement because of its experience with micro-rotors. Chronographs sales fell sharply during the second half of the 1960s a partnership to develop the first automatic chronograph and expected to launch help offset the slowdown was formed by Breitling and Heuer competitor. No other type of automatic winding caliber could allow installation backward and therefore easy to maintain chronograph module developed especially because the small oscillating mass not interfere with the two roundabouts counters elapsed time. Furthermore, the date ring which is placed directly below the line. The modular architecture also made possible the installation of the crown on the left side, where it was clear that this was a self-winding watch. Breitling and Heuer (now TAG Heuer replica watches) were responsible for the design, dials, cases and other components. The first prototypes of 11-gauge, which developed 19,800 vph, were available in the spring of 1968. The official launch of the Breitling Chrono-Matic, the world’s first automatic chronograph with micro-rotor, it was held simultaneously in Geneva and New York on March 3, 1969. When the curtain rose, the project had already consumed about half a million Swiss francs.
The transmitter Breitling emergency could send signals through an antenna extension cable if the user needs help. Once activated, the transmitter repeatedly emit 0.75-second pulse every 2.25 seconds. The Breitling Emergency, which premiered in 1995, was designed to save lives in critical situations. The Breitling Emergency was developed in collaboration with professional riders. Breitling equipped the flip-open this great titanium watch with a micro-transmitter case is set to the frequency of international air distress 121.5 MHz. The stainless steel versions are among the easiest to find, but also the more sought after. Gold plated later editions are less popular. Two lithium batteries in the emergency Breitling provide enough energy to keep the transmitter operates for 48 hours. The electronic module measuring time elapsed that could measure intervals with an accuracy of 1/100 second, also had a countdown function, an alarm, and time in a second zone. This information is displayed in digital form. Aerobatic pilots in squadrons of many nations chose to wear these watches.
In the history of Breitling, 2009 is an important year. As a matter of fact, it may be the year of consecration and the end of all previous misadventures. In fact, the wine brand with its main development for years, a whole movement in the company, the Breitling replica watches. The 46mm Navitimer 01 is available in two colors, white and classic black dial and more of a blue color.
In 2014, the Breitling Navitimer 01 appeared at Baselworld with an enlarged case: its diameter increased from 42 mm to 46 mm for the classic edition and up to 48 mm for editing GMT. But even if it has been updated to actual demand, the Navitimer remains a Navi, one of the most emblematic chronograph in the world, we love to see both classical or modern editions.
