Breitling has been significantly expanding its signature collection in more recent years, and the current Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 is a model that I could easily see myself wearing in everyday life.The current Breitling Navitimer Replica collection includes watches with case sizes that range from 35mm to 46mm in diameter, with the chronograph models available in 41mm, 43mm, and 46mm.
On top of that, the listed 43mm dimension actually refers to the diameter of the grooved rotating bezel that hangs over the edge of the case, and if you measure the diameter of the middle case itself, it actually comes in closer to 41mm with an overall lug-to-lug profile of approximately 49mm.
Similarly, the official thickness of the Cheap Breitling Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph 43 Replica is 13.6mm, but that also includes the domed sapphire crystal with blue anti-reflective coating that sticks up above the rim of the bezel. While a 43mm Breitling Navitimer is hardly a shrinking violet, the watch itself ultimately wears noticeably smaller than its on-paper dimensions might otherwise suggest.
Further helping mitigate the perceived size of the watch is its case finishing, and the sides of the stainless steel middle case receive linear brushing that contrasts against the polished top surfaces of the lugs. A similar approach is taken with the finishing on the pushers, which have brushed sides with high-polished ends, and these brushed surfaces throughout the case components helps temper what can sometimes be a rather “blingy” overall appearance when fully high-polished.
Given that the Navitimer is a pilot’s watch, water resistance isn’t really a priority, and the inherent nature of the Breitling Replica Watches Store complex design creates multiple points for potential water ingress. While the Navitimer isn’t going to be your underwater timekeeping companion (that would be the Breitling Superocean), it is still sufficiently protected against daily incidental encounters with a fairly standard 30 meters of water resistance.
The primary surface of the dial is a metallic pale blue color with a prominent sunburst finish, applied polished batons for the hour markers, and the fan-favorite AOPA wings emblem sitting just below the 12 o’clock location. Looking for the best Breitling Replica Watches trio of recessed sub-dials and the internal rotating slide rule bezel are all finished matte black for added contrast, and neatly sitting inside the sub-dial at the 6 o’clock location is a rectangular aperture that functions as a date window.
All of the hands receive polished surfaces to match the hour markers, although the hour and minute hand get furnished with thin luminous inlays, while the seconds hand is painted bright red for added contrast and increased legibility when using it in conjunction with the logarithmic scale on the bezel.
Although the Caliber 01 is essentially Breitling high quality best replica watches workhorse chronograph movement, it is reasonably decorated and nice to look at through the Navitimer’s display caseback, and it includes Geneva stripes and gold-filled engravings on its skeletonized rotor and upper bridges. In real-world use, I found that the Breitling Caliber 01 movement keeps time within its intended specifications, and the column wheel mechanism offers a nice and snappy action whenever starting or stopping the chronograph.
Featuring a medium amount of padding with white contrast stitching and a bright yellow lining, the strap tapers from 22mm at the lugs to 18mm where it connects to its pin-buckle style deployant clasp that features a convenient double push-button release. While the Breitling replica online at affordable prices strap material is slightly stiff when brand new, it quickly conformed to the shape of my wrist, and it ultimately became quite comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.
Aside from the fact that I prefer the dial color options from the 43mm range, the Breitling Navitimer Replica is supposed to be a big and rather extroverted watch, and if I was going to wear this bold and iconic style, I think I would want to lean into a bit and get myself one of these 43mm models.
