When you’ve done enough time in the U.S. military to pick up squadron command, a nearly $9,000 replica watch doesn’t sound like a bad reward to oneself, or as much of a significant ding to your paycheck as it would be to some. That’s part of why I’ve often seen the AAA fake Breitling Navitimer gracing the wrists of Air Force colonels, generals, and chief master sergeants, as well as naval aviators of similar grade.
The 1:1 replica Breitling Navitimer is the original by which all slide rule bezel aviator watches are measured, with price to match. But with a high price tag comes unbelievable finishing, chronometer accuracy, and unbelievable brand cachet and heritage — all in Air Force colors.
The perfect fake Breitling Navitimer Chronograph is a watch from a different time, when you needed a tool to calculate all relevant flight data mechanically strapped to your wrist. The beautifully hand-finished watch not only includes a manually-actuated slide rule bezel, but also a fully-functional chronograph that tracks hours, minutes, and seconds as a nod to a time when pilots flying by instrument had to plot waypoints on a map, estimate time of flight based off airspeed, and then have a stopwatch running to let them know when to turn. This utility comes in a package that is beautiful enough to function as a dress watch owing to the mirror-polished case and angled beads of rice bracelet.
I have to stretch to find something wrong with the luxury replica Breitling Navitimer Chronograph. This is not a small watch physically or in terms of cost, both in keeping with Breitling’s traditions of large, ornate watches that come at a premium. For smaller-wristed wearers, 43mm Breitling fake watches for sale may be a lot to work with, and they will likely experience some overhang from their wrist or at the very least have a watch that resembles a wrist-mounted wall clock at a glance. This is in keeping with classic functionality for pilots, but some might not prefer it for everyday wear. Another issue that many people will find is the cost of maintaining a watch of this grade, with even simple servicing being hundreds of dollars. Finally, like every slide rule aviator’s super clone watch, the dial is very cluttered, and some people may find that hard to read.
Frankly, this list would not be complete without the high quality replica Breitling Navitimer, which is to aviators what the Rolex Submariner is to divers. This is a beautiful heirloom watch and is an excellent choice for an end-of career memento for any aviator or aviation enthusiast.
