Breitling Aerospace Evo Night Mission Replica Watch Hands-On

So, at Baselworld 2015, our very own James Stacey found the first quartz Breitling watch that he liked – and it was a version of their newer Aerospace Evo with the new “Night Mission” skin. In addition to the Breitling Aerospace Evo that we went hands-on with, there is also the Breitling Aerospace Evo Night Mission 30th anniversary model which used the same black colored case and strap but has a yellow dial in honor of… well, the 30th anniversary of the Breitling Aerospace collection.

Back in 2013, Breitling quietly updated their longstanding Aerospace collection with the Breitling Aerospace Evo. Breitling increased the size of the Aerospace to 43mm and added some case design changes as well as a refreshed dial. Aside from the hands that I liked better on the previous generation, the Cheap Breitling Replica is a pretty good all-around watch if you like instruments.

Why did I add that caveat? Well, this is a luxury quartz watch in a world without that many luxury quartz watches. In fact, I have praised Breitling before on its decision to continue offering quartz watches as part of their collection. Some of the people who wear Breitling watches do actually require an electronically accurate timekeeper, and for them, mechanical timepieces really won’t do. The ETA-produced Breitling caliber 79 inside of the Breitling Replica UK is a thermo-compensated “SuperQuartz” which is accurate to within seconds per year. That is much more accurate than your standard $20 quartz watch. In addition to being a COSC Chronometer certified Swiss quartz movement, the caliber 79 also features a range of other functions such as a chronograph, countdown timer, perpetual calendar alarm, second timezone, and more.

When the Breitling Aerospace collection first came out in 1985, it was probably a bit of a big deal. Well enough that Breitling has been a popular choice for pilots of all types for years. What I’ve always appreciated about the Aerospace collection is that, true to its name, it has focused on modern aircraft versus only looking at the past.Not that Breitling Replica Watches doesn’t have its fair share of “retro-themed” pilot watches, but at least they also have modern ones. I get as nostalgic as most about the past, but sometimes, I crave stuff which is a lot more modern. Speaking of that, modern Aerospace watches are typified by their “ana-digi” dials which combine analog hands and two LCD screens which display additional information. While Breitling does offer other SuperQuartz watches with two other pushers, the Aerospace has always been about controlling everything via the crown.
While these are cool watches and Breitling continues to see success with them, I am of the opinion that pricing is a little out of whack. The Aerospace was once a great entry-point into the Breitling brand, and the good price matched the quartz nature of the watch. We now have mechanical Breitling watches that are in some instances less expensive than their quartz models (despite the fact that SuperQuartz movements are not cheap like other quartz movements). I’ve always felt that Cheap Breitling Replica should keep the Aerospace collection in the $3,000 – $3,500 range – but it has been a while since they had price points like that.

Baselworld 2016: Breitling Galactic Unitime

One of the factors that sets the Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT apart is its spanking-new manufacture movement — automatic Caliber B35, which is the first in-house Breitling Replica UK movement since the debut of its base B01 caliber without an integrated chronograph function. Instead, Caliber B35’s technical focus is on its easy-to-use world-time feature, which enables the user to pull out the crown and simply turn it backward or forward in both directions for smooth and easy adjustments of both the local time and date.

Breitling Caliber B35 uses two patented technologies, for the differential system and for the connection between the movement and city disk, as well as two other patents for the winding and time-setting systems. Furthermore, accuracy as well as ease of use has been taken into account: like all Cheap Breitling Replica movements, Caliber B35 has been officially certified as a chronometer by the Swiss testing agency COSC. The movement has a frequency of 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 70 hours.

The other “revolutionary” aspect of the Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT is on the outside of the watch: a new, smooth-surface bezel made of tungsten carbide, a high-tech, uber-resistant material made by molding tungsten powder at extremely high heat and under extreme pressure. The Breitling Replica Watches resulting substance is almost five times harder than steel and highly resistant to scratches. The slightly darker shade of the Galactic’s tungsten carbide bezel provides a subtle contrast with the 44-mm steel case, which is water-resistant to 100 meters and features a screw-locked crown and domed sapphire crystal with double-sided glareproof coating.

The city ring and 24-hour disk surround a striking, filigree globe-pattern dial — in either “Trophy black” or “Antarctica white” — adorned with large hour markers and hands, all enhanced with luminescent coating. The first versions of the Breitling Replica UK Galactic Unitime SleekT are both outfitted with Breitling’s familiar Pilot bracelet.

Hands-on With the Breitling Superocean II Replica

Breitling’s impressive manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. This meant we also had a chance to spend some time with the brand-new Breitling Superocean II that was introduced shortly before Baselworld 2015. Here we take a look at the 44-mm version with metallic blue dial, matching blue bezel insert, and rubber strap.You can choose between a 44- and 42-mm version with either black or blue dial, but only the 44-mm model features an integrated helium- release valve at 9 o’clock, making it the most “professional” version, with a water resistance of 1,000 meters and partially satin-brushed surfaces.

The unidirectional bezel is still partially filled with rubber, which looks amazing, but to be honest we had initially hoped for something different, like ceramic, after the recent re-introduction of the Breitling Replica UK Chronoliner.

As you have probably noticed, the dial is rather busy (which is typical for Breitling) but still surprisingly legible. It comes with an internal circle of 24-hour indexes, which includes the only aspect we found to criticize: the “15” at 3 o’clock is partially covered by the date window and somehow closer to the Cheap Breitling Replica center of the dial then the rest of the numerals. It could have been simply left out instead.
Other than that, the new Breitling Superocean II offers well-built quality and is as Breitling Replica Watches as they come, which means this redesign can be considered another happy landing for this aviation-associated brand.


What we liked very much:

The typical look and feel of a Breitling
Beautiful color combination
The mix of polished and satin-brushed parts
The slightly slimmer case
What we absolutely loved:

The redesigned bezel is much more functional and visually closer to what you expect from a dive watch
Wide choice in sizes, colors and straps

Breitling Aerospace Evo

Breitling launched the original version of its Breitling Aerospace Evo in 1985. Last year, the brand released a new model of the Breitling Aerospace Evo, a mainstay of its Professional collection, packing all of the existing functions into a slightly larger and redesigned case.

The new Breitling Aerospace Evo, like its predecessor, is an analog-digital watch equipped with Breitling’s Caliber 79, a “SuperQuartz” movement that is chronometer-certified by COSC and 10 times more accurate, Breitling says, than a traditonal quartz movement. All the Breitling Replica UK functions can be operated simply by rotating, pressing or pulling out the crown — from the setting of the analog and 12/24-hour digital LCD time displays to the array of aviator-friendly devices — which many hobby pilots will appreciate as the Breitling Aerospace has long had a followship among this clientèle. These include a 1/100th-second chronograph, countdown timer, second time zone, alarm, an audible time signal analagous to a minute repeater, calendar functions, and a Cheap Breitling Replica battery end-of-life indicator. The LCD displays also feature an NVG-compatible backlighting system.

The case of the new Breitling Aerospace Evo is larger in diameter than the original’s — 43 mm — and made of titanium, a metal used often in the world of aeronautics. It has a totally satin-brushed finish and is water-resistant to 100 meters. The Breitling Replica Watches ratcheted bezel, which in the new model is engraved and has integrated rider tabs, rotates in one direction. The hands and numerals on the dial have been redesigned, and the sapphire crystal, with glareproof coating on both sides, is now beveled. The Breitling Replica UK caseback sports a conversion scale for Anglo-Saxon and metric measurements.

The Breitling Aerospace Evo is available with three different dials — Volcano black, Mariner blue, and Tungsten gray — and is fitted with either a calfskin leather, alligator leather, or rubber Pro Diver III strap, or a titanium bracelet. The Cheap Breitling Replica bracelet version can also be equipped with an integrated, optional auxiliary co-pilot electronic module.

Breitling Galactic 36 Sleek T Replica

The Breitling Galactic 36 SleekT has a slimmer case than its predecessor, in addition to a smaller diameter. It is outfitted with Breitling Replica UK Caliber 74, a thermocompensated “SuperQuartz” movement (in contrast to the Unitime’s mechanical automatic Caliber B35), which is chronometer-certified and which Breitling says boasts a level of timekeeping precision 10 times higher than that of a standard quartz movement. Adding to the smooth ergonomic appeal of the case is the bezel made of tungsten carbide, an extremely resistant high-tech composite material. Made by molding tungsten powder at high Cheap Breitling Replica temperatures and under extreme pressures, tungsten carbide offers a hardness five times that of steel as well as a scratch-proof surface. Aesthetically, its color contrasts subtly with the polished steel of the case.

Two dials are available — mother-of-pearl and lacquered “Trophy Black” (below), with or without diamond hour markers, and both with date windows at 3 o’clock. There is also a version pairing the mother-of-pearl dial with a diamond-set bezel. The Breitling Replica Watches Galactic 36 SleekT is water-resistant to 100 meters and sports a curved sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides.

The New Connected Chronograph for Pilots

The mission statement of the Breitling Exospace B55 — an electronic chronograph watch that was teased but not officially launched at Baselworld 2015 earlier this year — is distinctive among the burgeoning crop of Swiss smartwatches and connected watches in that Breitling did not want to create a watch that was “dependent on a smartphone yet less efficient than the latter.” In other words, whereas the timepiece is built to pair up with a smartphone, it is also equipped for two-way communication between the devices, so both phone and watch form a complementary pair in which each does what it does best.For example, a smarwatch’s biggest assets, its relatively large screen and ergonomic interface, can be used to perform operations such as setting the time, time zone, alarms, display and operating parameters and night mode — tasks that would be more cumbersome on the small screen of a wristwatch. At the same time, the Breitling Replica UK, which boasts a multi-function, two-LCD-screen analog-digital display, performs an array of chronograph operations that can then be uploaded to a smartphone for review, storage, or sharing. These include pilot-friendly readings such as flight times, lap times, and recorded times with split times. The interface between phone and watch also enables the latter to receive notifications of incoming emails, Cheap Breitling Replica messages, phone calls with caller name and number, and appointment reminders.

The Breitling Exospace B55 follows the design codes of previous Breitling AnaDigi watches, such as the Breitling Emergency and Aerospace Evo, with a sturdy but lightweight case made of black titanium, measuring 46 mm in diameter, and equipped with a ratcheted, rotating, unidirectional bezel with rider tabs. The sapphire crystal is glareproof on both sides and the entire case is water-resistant to 100 meters.
The movement in the watch is Breitling Replica Watches Caliber B55, a thermocompensated “SuperQuartz” ana-digi movement equipped with a wide range of functions. Among these are an electronic tachymeter; a chronograph recording up to 50 split times; a countdown/countup system for MET readings; and numerous aviation-centric capabilities including a “chrono flight” device to record flight times and “block times” (jargon for the elapsed time from the moment a plane begins to taxi to the moment it comes to a stop at the end of a flight). It can store in its memory data including departure dates and times, arrival times, and takeoff and landing times. Other useful features include a perpetual calendar with week display, a battery-charge indicator, and seven daily alarms.

The Breitling Replica UK Exospace B55 is outftted with a Volcano black dial and comes on a two-tone TwinPro rubber strap.I had the opportunity to talk about the watch today with Breitling CEO Jean-Paul Girardin and to try it on. Here’s what it looks like on the wrist. Below the photo, you can check out Breitling’s official video for the Exospace B55 Connected watch.

Breitling Superocean Replica Showcases New High-Performance Caliber

Breitling’s output of new models at Baselworld 2016 was small compared to recent years, but featured some notable innovations, including an all-new, proprietary case material in the Avenger Hurricane and, in the new, limited-edition Breitling Heritage Superocean Chronoworks, a re-engineered movement with a 100-hour power reserve.

Breitling Replica UK Chronoworks department, headquartered at the brand’s manufacture in la Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, is the equivalent to a team of engine-tuning experts in the automotive world, tasked with developing and testing performance-upgrading technologies that can subsequently be introduced in series-produced watches. Breitling describes the well-equipped Chronoworks lab as a “think tank and a test bench for tomorrow’s technologies.” For this new watch, the experts at Chronoworks turned their attention to Cheap Breitling Replica in-house, COSC-chronometer-certified base Caliber 01, ultimately incorporating five new technological advancements that enhanced the movement’s energy efficiency, reduced friction, and pumped up its already impressive 70 hours of winding autonomy to a full 100 hours.

The first optimization involved the movement chassis. To reduce friction due to the pivoting of the arbors, Breitling Replica Watches constructed the movement chassis from a high-tech ceramic —hexagonal boron nitride — which was already being used as a solid adjuvant in high-performance engine lubricants, but is applied here for the first time in mechanical watchmaking. Thanks to an extremely low friction coefficient, the arbors can pivot directly in the baseplate and bridge holes without any wear or energy loss – and also without any lubricant, thereby eliminating 11 of the base movement’s 47 jewels.

Contrary to what one might think, a watch movement is actually at rest for 95 percent of the time, with each “restart” resulting in a certain loss of energy. To counteract this inertia, Cheap Breitling Replica outfitted its caliber with three wheels made of silicon, a material twice as light as traditional materials used for these components, thus making them it easier to set back into motion. Breitling also revised the geometry of these wheels, made using deep-reactive iron etching, to make their structure more rigid and thus avoid any distortion of the spokes.
The escapement is the part of the movement where most of its energy losses take place. Here, breitling replica uk maintained the Swiss lever escapement used in the base movement but replaced the wheel and lever with ones made of silicon. This served to reduce weight and thus inertia, and eliminated the need for pallet jewels, thereby enhancing precision in terms of shapes. To ensure more efficient transmission of the energy from the barrel, the Chronoworks team also revised the profile of the teeth and pallets, and ensured a banking-free angular limitation of the lever to further increase reliability. The overall result is a 42% gain in efficiency for one of the movement’s most vital organs.
Balance-wheel oscillations are generally adjusted by modifying the active length of the balance-spring using pins, an operation that can disturb chronometry. The Breitling Replica Watches Chronoworks specialists opted instead for a variable-inertia balance, adjustable via four tiny gold weights situated around the rim. To free this component from temperature sensitivities and maintain the same rate precision in every circumstance, they combined a nickel felly with a cross made of brass, using the metal’s expansion/contraction to modify the inertia. When the temperature rises, the cross expands and “pulls” the felly towards the center, thus reducing inertia. This system reinterprets the principle of bimetallic balance wheels by leveraging state-of-the-art production technologies.

The first Breitling watch to showcase these advancements, from the brand’s Superocean Héritage family, launches this year in a 100-piece limited edition. The Breitling Superocean Héritage Chronoworks is an all-black model with a new matte ceramic case, measuring 46 mm in diameter and featuring a ratcheted, rotating divers’ bezel and a curved sapphire crystal with glareproof coating on both sides. The “Volcano”black dial has pointed hour-markers echoing those on the 1957 Superocean, this watch’s vintage inspiration. Its tricompax design features 30-minute and 12-hour subdial counters for the 1/4-second chronograph function, along with a small seconds subdial and a date window at 4:30. The transparent caseback provides a view of the performance-optimized Chronoworks movement and its black winding rotor.

Testing the Breitling Superocean Replica Watches

The modern Breitling Replica UK Superocean is built to withstand the rigors of sea, surf and sand. See how it fares in WatchTime’s Breitling Superocean test, conducted by writer Alexander Krupp and photographer Nik Schölzel.
The first Breitling Superocean model, introduced in 1957, was water-resistant to 200 meters. The newest version of the watch, which Breitling unveiled at Baselworld in 2010, has a water-resistance level of 1,500 meters. Even though it can be worn at depths to which only professional divers can sink — the watch even has a helium-release valve, for use in a diving chamber — we’re guessing that most of its owners will think of it as an all-purpose sports watch for everyday wear. It is in that context that we tested the watch. There is much to praise about the Cheap Breitling Replica Superocean, starting with its case, 42 mm in diameter, which has several features that are standard for the Breitling brand: a smoothly ratcheting bezel, high-quality polishing, and an elaborate logo embossed on the caseback. The bezel, which rotates in only one direction, is fitted with a distinctive, molded-rubber ring insert in which four numerals and eight indexes, all satin-finished, have been smoothly inlaid. The finishing is impeccable. The rubber tends to attract dust, and the metal markers and polished case sides quickly show scratches, but Breitling could not have prevented these problems.

The Breitling Replica Watches Superocean watch is easy to operate. The bezel and crown guards pose little hindrance when the wearer unlocks the large, fluted, screw-down crown, and the crown engages nicely in its two positions. The crown stem is very sturdy and does not move at all when the crown is pulled out. The watch’s movement, the ETA 2824, has a hack mechanism and a quick-date-set feature. The pronounced fluting on the bezel means the wearer can turn it easily, even when wearing gloves. The bezel ratchets smoothly in half-minute increments. The dial has pluses and minuses. The three oversized markers at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, the wide hands and the extremely large, slanted numerals give the Breitling Replica UK a dynamic appearance. The large numerals and markers do, however, make the dial look crowded, and the wide bezel, which reduces the dial’s size and visual impact, contributes to this effect. The date window, which serves as an hour marker at 3 o’clock, is nicely placed and its size is compatible with those of the other hour markers. Reading the date can nonetheless be hard because the numerals on the date ring are quite thin. The problem is worst for the numerals 10 through 19 because the 1 is very close to the date window’s edge.
The time is generally easy to read on this version of the Cheap Breitling Superocean Replica, even though the minute hand does not extend to the minute track. Because the markers and hands are so big, they provide plenty of space for luminous coating and thus shine brightly in the dark. Divers can make sure the watch is still running by looking at the seconds hand, whose luminous tip makes it visible in dark and murky water. The bezel isn’t as handy for timing a dive as it could be, though, because  it does not have a luminous dot to indicate the start of the dive. Nor does the bezel have minute markers within each five-minute increment, so timing a dive to the minute involves some guesswork.

Breitling Replica for Bentley GMT B04 S Carbon Body

Breitling demonstrated a flair for innovating with new materials in its Baselworld 2016 product launches — like ceramic for baseplates and bridges in its new Chronoworks caliber, and an exclusive new alloy, Breitling Replica UK, for the case of its Avenger Hurricane watch. This year’s new Breitling for Bentley watch continues the theme, with a case made from a cutting-edge carbon material used in the chassis of Formula One race cars.Breitling for Bentley GMT B04 S Carbon Body – reclining.The 45-mm case of the Cheap Breitling Replica for Bentley GMT Bo4S Carbon Body is constructed from a high-tech material in which tiny carbon fiber strands, just 30 microns in diameter, are woven into hundreds of layers, with successive layers placed at 45-degree angles between them, and bonded by a heat-set resin. The process yields a finished product that is exceedingly rigid, shock-resistant and matte-black in appearance.The dial is also made of carbon, with a visible weave pattern.

Like its predecessor models, the watch has the Breitling for Bentley collection’s hallmark features, including ergonomic curves, asymmetrical lugs, and broad bezel with a knurled motif echoing the look of a Bentley radiator grille. In addition to a 1/4-second chronograph, an integrated function in most all Breitling Replica Watches with in-house movements, the B04 S Carbon Body is equipped with an easy-to-use timezone-changing system, which the wearer can operate by simply pulling out the crown and turning it forward or backward to move the hour hand in one-hour increments to set a new local time without any loss of precision to the minutes. The date will also automatically adjust to the new local time, in either direction. Additionally, the scale on the rotating inner pinion bezel bears the names of 24 world cities, enabling a quick readings of the time in any other time zone in the world at a glance.The dial has subdials for the Breitling Replica UK chronograph 30-minute and 12-hour counters at 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock, respectively, and for running seconds at 9 o’clock. The center-mounted GMT hand is red, matching the red-rimmed counters of the subdials, which evoke the look of a race car’s instrument panel. The dial, which also offers a date window at 4;30, is protected by a curved sapphire crystal, glare-proofed on both sides. The screw-locked winding crown helps keep the case water-resistant to 100 meters.

This Bentley’s engine is Cheap Breitling Bentley Replica automatic manufacture Caliber B04, with 47 jewels, a speedy frequency of 28,800 vph, and a long power reserve of more than 70 hours. Like all Breitling calibers, it has been certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute and protected by two patents.

Close-Up: Breitling Superocean II Replica Watches

Over the years the Superocean has been a mainstay of Breitling’s watches, moving through a variety of different designs and variations. But in 2015, Breitling brought out a new generation altogether: the Breitling Superocean II. Let’s take a look to see what distinguishes this new watch from its forebears.


The Superocean II in its 44-mm size

First launched in 1957, the original Cheap Breitling Replica Superocean was water resistant to 200 meters, making it inarguably a serious divers’ watch. But that’s been far surpassed: recent versions of the Superocean have been water resistant to as much as 1,500 meters. This movement is also to be found in the Superocean II.In developing the Superocean II, Breitling has made some subtle but important design updates. The font for the numbers on the rotating bezel is less stylized than on Superocean, and this bezel now has a luminous dot at 12 o’clock. The bezel has graduations for the last 15 minutes of a dive, but these markings are now large rectangular markings, not the small pips seen on models like the current Superocean 44.

The dial has also gone in for a redesign. There is now a full complement of Arabic numerals to mark the hours, all with white luminous coating. What’s more, the Superocean II has an internal circle of indexes for reading 24-hour time – something you won’t find on any other Superocean model. A red outline for the arrow-tipped seconds hand is standard on all sizes of the breitling replica uk Superocean II.The case of the Superocean II is slimmer than its predecessor. Whereas the Superocean 42 is 15 mm thick and the Superocean 44 is 16.7 mm thick, the Superocean II is 13.3 mm thick with a 42-mm diameter and 14.2 mm thick with a 44-mm diameter.Additionally, the Superocean II comes in a distinctly different size that’s not available in the Superocean line. The 36-mm-wide Superocean II looks nearly identical to its larger siblings, though it’s also available in a white-on-steel version for ladies.

On all three sizes, the Breitling Replica Watches has a screw-locked crown, unidirectional rotating bezel that ratchets into place, and a cambered sapphire crystal. The caseback is embossed with a circular Superocean motif. The movement, Caliber 17, is chronometer certified and beats at 28,800 vph. The watches are available on a rubber “Ocean Racer” strap or steel bracelet.On the 42- and 44-mm models, dials are available in either black or deep blue. The 36-mm model comes with a black or a white dial. The cases of the 36-mm and 42-mm versions are polished steel; the 44-mm case is satin-brushed steel. The water resistance of the models ranges: it’s 200 meters for the 36 mm, 500 meters for the 42 mm, and 1,000 meters for the 44 mm.
