What We Know
Breitling has just released a collection of smaller sized Swiss made Breitling Navitimer replica watches in both 36mm (automatic) and 32mm (quartz). And there’s a whole range for the – dare I say it – ladies to choose from. Obviously these work for the boys too – while this feels like a redundant comment, I thought it was worth a mention for the sake of watch-world equality / the diameter positivity movement.
The new 36mm size top UK Breitling Navitimer fake watches is time only and comes in a trio of metallic dial colors (mint green, silver, and anthracite) with baton indexes, or with a white mother-of-pearl dial set with round-cut lab grown “better diamonds.”
I got a chance to look at and try on the new automatic stainless steel perfect replica Breitling Navitmer 36 watches in both mint green and gray (anthracite). They both feature the classic beaded bezel and circular slide rule, but no chronograph! Which makes the new release one of two things, depending on which camp you are sitting in – sleek or completely naked.
The original high quality Breitling Navitimer copy watches was dreamed up by Willy Breitling in the early ’50s and used by pilots as an analog calculator. He called it the Navigation Timer which then eventually became the portmanteau we use today. The case diameter was fixed at 41 millimeters, which was large for its time – large enough to ensure that all the information provided by the dial would be easy to read while flying. The 1:1 online Breitling Navitimer replica watches featured a rotating slide rule on the bezel that worked in conjunction with a chronograph to make cockpit calculations easier. So the missing chronograph on these new models leaves about zero room for this watch’s original functionality. But I’ll be the first to admit that I choose looks over brains so I’ll let you decide if this is semi sacrilegious.
The new AAA replica Breitling Navitimer 36 watches is powered by the COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 17, providing three-hand time and automatic winding. It comes on both bracelet and strap.
What We Think
Back in 2020, Breitling launched the wholesale replica Breitling Navitimer Automatic 35 watches. As Cara explained in her review of this earlier model, “Breitling has been and always will be a consumer-focused manufacturer,” their mission is clearly to expand on an existing idea in line with current market trends and make it fit as many consumers as possible. This Swiss movements Breitling super clone watches is marketed to women but fits the new demand for smaller size everything by male watch enthusiasts too.
I hesitate to use the word “shrunken” for fear of sounding critical off the bat, but let’s call a spade a spade. Yes the design is considered and balanced. But as a woman in the watch space it’s my job to be critical about these things. While I do appreciate things being made in smaller more wearable sizes (for those of us with smaller wrists), mother of pearl and diamond indices give me the ick.
But that’s okay because there’s something for everybody in this new lineup. I chose the mint or gray dial in 36mm with nary a diamond in sight because it felt like the most wearable option to me. I suppose the democratic approach is to make something for everybody and that’s exactly what luxury Breitling fake watches has done here. Hats off to them for an attempt at actual variety. Because, surprise surprise, different women like different things.
And while I’m trying not to think too deeply about the omission of the chronograph (come on people I know you can make a 36mm chrono), it begs the question – do we shrink and change what’s good about an existing product or do we just make a new product?
