Cheap Breitling Replica Introduces the Navitimer B01 “S&S 10th Anniversary” Blue mother-of-pearl for a retailer in Vietnam.
Breitling has employed mother-of-pearl for the dial, an unusual material for the brand but one that adds a touch of extravagance to an otherwise functional pilot’s watch.
The mother-of-pearl dial instantly sets this apart from the standard Breitling Navitimer Replica Watches, particularly with the red gold case. Perhaps the only thing missing is the retailer’s logo on the dial, a detail that would hark back to the double-signed dials that are desirable in vintage watches.
The S&S Navitimer is slightly more expensive than the standard production model in rose gold that has a plain, cream dial. This increase can primarily be attributed to the mother-of-pearl dial and seems fairly proportional for the upgrade in dial material.
The chronograph is a variant of the Swiss Breitling Navitimer B01 Replica, which was released in 2022. It sports a vintage-inspired design with a winged AOPA emblem at 12, an ode to the original Navitimer, which was the official timepiece of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
Nevertheless, the main feature of this timepiece lies in its cloud-inspired, blue mother-of-pearl dial, which visually contrasts the white registers. According to Breitling, the dial was inspired by the tagline “the sky’s the limit”, symbolising the partnership between the Grenchen-based brand and the Vietnamese retailer.
Aside from the Newest Top Quality Breitling Replica dial colour, the dial design remains identical to standard Navitimer models with the familiar slide-rule bezel and a date at six.
The case is 18k red gold and measures 41 mm in diameter and 13.6 mm high. Inside is the Caliber 01, the brand’s in-house chronograph movement featuring both a column wheel and vertical clutch, while providing a power reserve of 70 hours.
