There may not be a more iconic pilot’s chronograph than the Breitling Navitimer Replica. To be sure, the Navitimer is one of the most recognizable chronographs ever made. Its distinctive circular slide rule, present since its introduction in 1952, makes sure of that. The new Beoing 747 LE keeps things simple, and since Breitling hasn’t been shy about using color on its flagship chronograph, it won’t be jarring in the least.
Breitling has matched the dial to the livery of the original 747, with a cream-colored central dial and a red inner slide rule scale; the outer slide rule scale remains white, with blue accents. As with any Cheap Breitling Replica, you’ll either find the slide rule a neat quirk held over from the past or an unnecessary adornment that clutters the dial.
Rounding out the dial are black sunken registers with radial grooving and a black date window nicely nestled at the 6 o’clock counter. The applied indices and handset are all fully polished with Super-LumiNova, with a red chronograph hand to match the accented dial.
Breitling Replica Watches has opted to use the 43mm Navitimer for this model, an interesting choice given the brand just released a 41mm Navitimer more in line with current sizing trends. But Breitling is as known for its enormous watches as anything else, so it could’ve been even larger. The case is exactly what you know from the Navitimer line: just over 49mm from lug-to-lug and a not terrible, not great 13.69mm thick.
The long, straight, polished lugs have a matching polished chamfer that expands as it reaches the blocky termina, which are brushed at the ends, complementing the horizontal brushing of the caseband. Pump pushers flank the branded pull-out crown, which, despite having two gaskets, limits the Best Fake Breitling Online to 30m of water resistance.
The sapphire crystal is domed with anti-reflective coating. As evident in the included press photo above, this watch will wear prominently on the wrist, which is unsurprising given the height and straighter lugs. The watch is available with a padded black alligator strap with a folding buckle or Breitling top quality replica signature seven-row steel bracelet.
The Navitimer Boeing 747 runs Breitling’s in-house Caliber 01, first introduced in 2009 and now standard on Breitling’s chronograph models. The Swiss Replica Watches 47-jewel movement is chronometer-certified by COSC and features a column wheel chronograph mechanism with a vertical clutch for smooth timing action. It beats at 28,800 vph with a power reserve of 70 hours. The caseback puts the movement on full display through a sapphire crystal.
Hat-tipping its heritage as a pilot’s chronograph, the Breitling Replica AOPA’s logo is displayed prominently at 12 o’clock in a retro-style shade of gold, counterbalanced by an integrated date window at 6 o’clock. Take a closer look at the dial, and one may also spot that the “Boeing 747” name is discreetly incorporated into the circular slide rule’s inner scale.
