JM: The perfect fake Breitling Navitimer is by far the most accessible and broadly appealing chronograph in this bunch, largely because it has a long history with collectors and is the most affordable, with all the other super clone watches online ranging from three to 18 times as expensive.
Affordability should definitely be taken into account for the best chronograph copy watch in my opinion as it should be a watch that presents a clear value. But that is where the real benefits for the Navitimer end against the group of nominees. Against the others in this category, the 1:1 fake Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute does feel a little like a high school athlete playing against professionals; it just isn’t fair.
That isn’t to say that luxury replica Breitling couldn’t compete if it wanted to, but I feel like it just isn’t on the same level of chronograph as the others in this competition; it’s just too pedestrian.And that is not something I would have ever considered the Navitimer, but it feels right this year and makes me think that aaa quality replica Breitling probably won’t take the crown.
MG: Shouldn’t this cheap replica Breitling be in the Iconic category? As enthusiastically as I would have received it there, so reserved am I about it here. While a watch with very interesting pedigree, it is more old wine in a new bottle than anything else. Yes, that can taste fantastic but is not enough in my book to win the Chronograph category.
ED: This is by far the busiest watch in the half-dozen, which is saying a lot when you look at that MB&F. However, it is only half as interesting as that watch, which will either be the eventual winner here or runner up – or even take a discretionary prize home. Nothing against the Swiss made fake Breitling Navitimer, which is an absolutely iconic model, but it’s just not going to be the winner here this year.
GG: I had the pleasure of attending a collector event at the launch of high quality fake Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Limited Edition, so I do have a soft spot for the watch as well as its foundation in the watch worn by Astronaut Scott Carpenter during his 1962 flight. The key Cosmonaute features including 24-hour dial and bezel slide rule are all in place, and it’s a crisp-looking watch in person, but it’s not equipped to fight it out with the MB&F and Grönefeld chronographs.
IS: While I appreciate that pilot’s fake watches for sale need to display a lot of information, as a general chronograph I find the dial of the top super clone Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute Limited Edition to be far too busy. The Cosmonaute may well have been the first Swiss wristwatch in space, but I don’t think its backstory will be enough for it to win in this field.
