Breitling Navitimer Replica Watch

The Breitling Navitimer is a beautiful luxury timepiece dedicated to aviation fans. The design of this watch is outstanding and it represents a milestone in the watchmaking history. Many collectors consider it a true masterpiece of reliability and performance. Needless to say, the Navitimer line includes some of the most popular watch models that have ever been manufactured and their beauty is surpassed only by their extreme functionality.

The originality of the Breitling Navitimer consists on a complex balance between new and old aesthetics, between modern and traditional lines. The watch has a distinctive solid stainless steel case, a dial colored in a white or dark color, a red seconds hand, white or silver chronograph sub-dials and applied hour-markers or numerals. Also, the watch comes with a bi-directional ratcheted rotating bezel that allows you to operate the famous circular aviation slide rule.

I have recently purchased a replica of the Breitling Navitimer, but, sadly, it is not a very accurate reproduction of the original model. As you can see in the photo, the dial has various flaws that make it obvious for anyone that this watch is a fake. The first thing you notice is the orange-brownish color. There is no genuine Navitimer with this color of dial. Of course, I should have known this before buying the replica, but I liked the color very much and did not take the time to research if the original watch is available with this orange dial. Huge mistake!

Another flaw, and this is very unaesthetic, is regarding the three small dials. These are dirty or smudged somehow, especially the one from the 3 o’clock position. Almost its entire surface is covered by whitish dirt. Additionally, all three counters are glued onto the dial in a very sloppy manner leaving very visible traces of glue around the outside of the small silvery discs. And this is not all, the seconds hand should be all red color and its top should be an arrow, but on my replica just the top is red and this isn’t shaped like an arrow. It is just a plain line.

Another big mistake regarding the design of this Breitling Navitimer replica is the bezel. The bezel on my fake watch is not the standard Navitimer bezel, the one that comes with all original Navitimer timepieces. It is a Bentley bezel. And this mix-up is a clear sign that the watch is a poor replica.

The knockoff is made from solid stainless steel, but the quality isn’t the best I have seen. The shine of the case and band looks cheap and the finishing is really bad. There are edges that weren’t well-rounded very and these can even scratch your skin if you are not careful.

This Breitling Navitimer fake watch is equipped with an Asian movement. So far, the watch has kept good time, but I didn’t have it for that long so I can’t make a safe estimation of its time accuracy. Still, no matter how exact this replica is, it still cannot compensate for its huge design flaws.

When you buy a replica watch you must always research the company you are considering and the model you want to purchase. Otherwise, you risk ending up with an inferior knockoff that you can’t wear in front of other people, like this Breitling Navitimer replica watch.

Breitling Crosswind Review

Surely, one of the most remarkable designs within the watch industry is the manly and over-sized Breitling Crosswind. This unique chronograph watch is the peak of the Windrider range. Designed, constructed and adorned with outstanding aesthetic sense and extreme watchmaking skills, its perfect craftsmanship is equaled only by the refinement of its shape and choice of materials. For all these sophisticated details, the Breitling Crosswind represents a prestigious and original Breitling design, and it enjoys the durability and high functionality of an advanced time keeping instrument.

The Breitling Crosswind has a distinctive adventurous look due to its large stainless steel case, which embodies a deep blue dial adorned with roman numerals, a date window and three small dials. Another novelty of this model is the unique winding crown and buttons. These are more rounded than the classic ones, their shape resembles to one of a dome. To improve night legibility, the model has luminescent coating on the roman hour markers, on the large hands, and also on the small three hands.

I have always fancied the Crowsswind line and this is the reason why I was so tempted to buy myself a replica of this model. I honestly cannot say that this is one of the best replicas I own, so the entire purchase was a disappointment. I will also explain why this is such a bad fake and I will give you some tips to avoid making the same mistake I did.

The first thing you want to do when buying a replica is to look at the dial and compare it with the original Breitling Crosswind dial. First of all, the roman hour markers are off. The replica has all 12 roman hour markers applied on the dial, but the original watch does not mark all 12 hours represented by roman numerals. It only uses I, II, IV, V, VII, VIII, X and XI. The other hours are luminescent dots. Also, my replica does not have luminescent coating on the small hands from the sub-dials. The original watch has luminor on these to enhance night legibility. Furthermore, the Breitling CrossWind replica has a red arrow on top of the seconds hands while the original one has a white arrow on top.

The biggest and most noticeable defect is the bezel of the replica. The Breitling Crosswind should have the distinctive Windrider bezel while my replica has a Navitimer bezel. Any person who sees this flaw will be able to tell that the watch is just a cheap quality fake product. And let’s not forget about the winding crown and small buttons on the right side of the watch. The Crowsswind introduces a new type of buttons, rounded ones, shaped like domes. Of course, my replica does not carry this type of buttons. It has the old style of Breitling winding crown and buttons.

The quality of the stainless steel used on this Crowsswind replica is pretty good. It is not the best steel I have ever seen, but it has proved to be a very sturdy and durable one. I have worn this watch for quite some time and it managed to conserve its shine. The movement is also pretty decent. The watch features an Asian automatic mechanism and it keeps good time. Unlike, most poor quality replicas it does not stop while I wear it and does not lose considerable amounts of time.

The Breitling Crosswind is a very modern and popular model designed for those who love beautiful watches and the thrill of extreme sports. It is the perfect watch for modern and fashionable men. If you are considering buying an imitation, first take a moment to compare the replica with the original design and choose wisely by following the above guidelines.

What I have noticed is that the store offers both Swiss and Japanese replicas. The Japanese replicas cost about $100-$250 while the Swiss replicas cost over $400. I know that the difference might seem pretty big, but the higher price tag reflects a more exact outside and a more accurate inside mechanism. For many watch collectors, this difference is pretty important and it surely deserves the extra bucks.
