Pilot Breitling replica watches for sale are almost as old as aviation itself – consider, for example, the Santos Dumont, the practical yet joyously sleek piece Louis Cartier produced back in 1904 for the eponymous pilot/inventor/adventurer (simultaneously opening the bidding for the world’s first purpose-designed wristwatch). War would see a more utilitarian timepiece take to the air, as pilots required accurate timing to guide their missions however uncomfortable the going. The realm of the skies became watchmaking manna with the advent of commercial long-haul flying, when aircrew and passengers alike sought out models with the added benefit of a second time zone or world-time function. But for those looking for its purest attributes, it pays to go back in time to the cool, retro-inspired ranges produced by the likes of Swiss made fake Breitling watches, Longines and IWC.
What is a pilot watch?
Although many top replica Breitling pilot watches trade on the glamour of man-made flight, their guiding mantra is typically that of good old fashioned utility. Just like any other cockpit instrument, these timepieces are designed with legibility first and foremost in mind. Often that means a large dial of well over 40mm, a chunky crown for making adjustments on the fly and a whole lot of luminosity so that the time can be read at all hours of the day. Distraction is the deathly enemy of a pilot watch, so most tend to eschew extravagant complications for fear of distracting from their original purpose – perfect Breitling Navitimer fake watches is the rarefied exception to this clutter-free ethos.

The Swiss movements copy Breitling Navitimer is the pilot’s watches for many, and while we might pine for a vintage small-diameter one, who can resist this new range? Still with its air speed-calculating slide rule function that has born many a cockpit-based daydream, it’s unashamedly big at 46mm. While the high quality fake Breitling watches might seem a little too much on the large side for some, legibility is an absolute must for such a competent chronograph. And with that coppery salmon dial, we wouldn’t want it any other way.

Named after the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, the American single-engined, single-seat, metal fighter aircraft that first flew in 1938, this 41 mm by 10.47 mm is a decidedly slimmer pilot’s watch for those who prefer something a little more refined than the traditional bulky versions. The luxury replica Breitling watches’ olive-green dial and matching Nato strap mimic the body of its namesake aircraft, while red accents on the seconds hand and just above the 12 o’clock marker are reminiscent of the naval bird’s nose. The back of its black stainless steel case also features the image of the P-40 Warhawk and the Curtiss name.
