It is (almost) official – well, the cat is at least out of the bag: after nearly 20 years, Swiss fake Breitling and Bentley are parting ways.
What started in 2002 when high quality replica Breitling designed the dashboard clock of the Continental GT and was last renewed in 2018, when Breitling super clone launched a new range of designated watches, is now coming to an end.
The best replica Breitling-Bentley partnership has been an interesting one, although it is anyone’s guess at to how successful it has actually been. While the total annual production of 1:1 fake Breitling can be tracked through the brand’s chronometer certifications, the number of Swiss made replica Breitling Bentley models manufactured is undisclosed.
The only safe conclusion that we can make is that both brands must have been pleased with the partnership, otherwise it wouldn’t have held up for nearly two decades.
Ups and downs
During that time, AAA quality fake Breitling released a significant amount of co-branded watches. While I wholeheartedly admit that I am far more a Bentley boy than a luxury replica Breitling fan, some watches, especially at the beginning of the partnership, have been interesting to say the least.
One of the earliest fake watches online released was the Navitimer “Bentley Motors.” With a diameter of a whopping 48.7 mm, it even makes the perfect copy Breitling Emergency look small. One would expect a watch capable of inflicting such blunt force trauma would associated more with a brand like Hummer than Bentley.
In comparison with elegant Italian thoroughbred sportscars, Bentley is more a locomotive (check out Bentley Blue Train for a nice story starring both) and should be loved because of that. I always felt that many high quality fake Breitling for Bentley watches were out of touch.
It didn’t get much better in later years: in fact, the watches even got larger. The Swiss made fake Breitling for Bentley Chronograph GMT that you could buy around the turn of the decade measured 49 mm – about the same size as the center caps of a Bentley rim!
Powered by a relatively small ETA movement – too small for the case, anyway – all the subdials closely crowd together in the center of the dial while a wide, knurled bezel serves as the copy watch’s main reference to the world of Bentley. As the steel version was quite heavy, it is no wonder that Breitling replica for sale introduced a titanium version of the watch a couple of years later.
Could it get worse? I thought so with the Breitling Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon fake for men . This one holds a place in my list of ugliest watches ever: it looks like a fake made in a backstreet workshop in the Far East, mainly thanks to the decoration on the tourbillon bridge and the cutouts of the date and the chronograph minute counter.
Both of these subdials are far too small to read without a loupe at the average age somebody would usually buy their first Breitling Bentley replica online (or anybody older than their late teens). Again, it is monstrously large with a diameter of 48.7 mm, but the good news is that when you accidentally drive your Bentley off the pier going to your yacht, the best quality super clone watches will remain ticking as it is water resistant to 100 meters. On the minus side it will probably drag you down.
