The introduction of the automatic chronograph movement was a cataclysmic event for the Swiss Replica watch industry. Up to this point there were only two kinds of watches: the self-winding watch, and the chronograph. In 1969 however this discord passed into history. A fusion of these two became a new reality.
The watches grew up a little bit, from Breitling Replica Watches 41mm bezel diameter to a 42.4 mm diameter, however were still powered by the manually wound chronograph calibres. There were three ‘new’ references, plus one. First of all the ref.7650, which was basically a slightly larger ref.765CP.
This was a huge chronograph, even by today’s standards, measuring 48mm Breitling Replica in diameter. It had a bi-compax layout with the date window at 6 o’clock, crown at 9 o’clock and chronograph pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock.
For the first time, the Top Time came with a Valjoux movement, calibre 7736. This was a manual wind caliber that Best Fake Breitling measured up to 12 hours, had 17 jewels, ran at 18,000 vph and had 45 hours of power reserve. A true workhorse calibre for a truly marvelous chronograph, and, as later will become clear, the last of the family.
