For 70 years, Swiss made fake Breitling’s original pilot’s watch the Navitimer has been beloved by aviators and tastemakers in equal measure. Worn by an astronaut in space and the biggest stars on Earth, the Navitimer is Breitling’s most iconic timepiece. Today, best 1:1 replica Breitling UK honors the legend with the introduction of a new Navitimer collection to celebrate its 70th anniversary. An array of dial options as well as three different sizes —41, 43, and 46 mm— have been unveiled to please the most demanding connoisseurs.
In 1952, Willy Breitling developed a wrist-worn chronograph with a circular slide rule that would allow pilots to perform all necessary flight calculations. Two years later, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association —AOPA—, the largest aviators’ club in the world, announced the design as its official timepiece. The association’s winged logo was emblazoned at 12 o’clock, and the “navigation timer”—or cheap fake Breitling Navitimer—was born.
To create the new Navitimer, perfect replica Breitling UK preserved the most recognizable aspects of the icon’s design code. From a distance, this is unmistakably a Navitimer, with its circular slide rule, baton indexes, a trio of chronograph counters, and notched bezel for easy grip. Up close, however, its modern refinements come through loud and clear.
The new AAA replica Breitling Navitimer collection for the 70th anniversary features the return of the AOPA wings to their original position at 12 o’clock to spark nostalgia, a flattened slide rule, and a domed crystal that creates the illusion of a more compact profile. Alternating polished and brushed finishings give the metal elements a lustrous, yet understated quality. A slimmer silhouette on the oscillating weight enhances the display case back view of the COSC-certified Swiss movement copy Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. This 346-part movement is backed by a five-year warranty, provides approximately 70 hours of power reserve, and allows the wearer to change the date —now visible through a discreet window in the subdial— at any time.
