Breitling Navitimer 8 Replica Watches
There’s been much discussion about the future of Breitling in the past few years. As a first step forward into the future of the brand from a product standpoint, Breitling launched an all-new collection dubbed the Navitimer 8 recently, hosting a series of launch events globally that looked both at the new collection, which is the same as the brand’s rich historical archives. Having taken some time to digest these new releases, as well as the various statements from HQ about the line and where the brand is headed, we thought we would take some time for a closer examination of these cheap replica watches, and how they stand in the market.
Before coming to the rest of the equation, the fake Navitimer 8 generates a good number of talking points. The dials will mostly feature a brushed sunray finish in either dark grey or blue, with the exception of the Navitimer 8 Chronograph using matte dials, the Gold Navitimer 8 B01 with a brown dial, and finally, the Unitime world timer which can also be had with a light silver dial.
The first surprise that shocked us with the launch of the replica Breitling Navitimer 8 series is that two different Chronograph models are a part of the product line, both fitted in the same 43mm case.
Looking at the rest of the collection, it’s obvious to see that there’s a plan afoot to capture a new segment of entry-level Breitling buyers. The Rolex Day & Date replica models find themselves being nearly as polarizing as the 2nd chronograph offering in this new model range, as it features the same day placement as found on the much-loved Rolex Day-Date. In the metal, we found the model a fair bit more attractive than expected, and all told the balance of the day at 12 and date at 6 works quite well aesthetically. By comparison, the simple Automatic variant fell a bit flat in our eyes. Though unsure if it’s a matter of the proportions of its indices in relation to its dial, its unmarked brushed steel bezel, or the simple fact that it’s been a good while since we’ve seen much from the Breitling replica watches whose design we could refer to as simple or understated.
There are many different models heading to market this summer, the one we found ourselves enjoying more than expected wound up being the Breitling Navitimer 8 Unitime. The light silver example, featuring subtle accents in red and blue, proved to be quite charming in person, and its vintage-looking font for city indication reminiscent of that found on the Chopard Time Traveler One—our favorite world timer on the market right now. In recent years any fake Breitling world timer found it mated to a chronograph complication, and by and large, was priced a bit steeper than anything it could compete with.
