Unbelievable and completely unexpected, but for seeing through my own eyes, Breitling, the company that owns jet team, is planning to release a new watch for 2016! That’s it, the new Breitling Chronoliner, harkening back to the beauty and grace of Breitling’s 1950s and 1960s design, which is a truely elegant and decent timepiece. According the original design, we re-engineered the replica Breitling from scratch.
Featuring a complete “panda dial”, at “just” 46mm wide, the steel-cased replica Breitling Chronoliner is a suitable size for the brand nowadays. The Breitling Chronoliner ought to wear boldly but comfortably with its modestly-sized lugs and lack of crown guard. Given Breitling’s current style and demographic, 46mm in case diameter seems to be their sweet size. And here, it is mixed with a vintage-style case complete with plunger chronograph pushers. And what suprising us most is that its fans is made of the rotating bezel material.
Breitling rarely uses black ceramic for the bezel on the Breitling Chronoliner. There have been some black-cased Breitling models, but it seemed there is no any other one has had steel cases compound with black ceramic. In our cheap replica watches, it makes a lot of sense that it follows the trend of many other brands, since this black bezel on steel case combination is something copied from Breitling’s history. Though the black bezels were merely painted metal and prone to wear in the past. So long as the bezel is not physically damaged, black ceramic does not wear off, the color and shine remain forever.
Compared to some modern Breitling watches, which many people think go a bit far given textures, fonts, and colors, Breitling Chronoliner extends to the dial that provides great composure and design abstinence. This same vintage look extends to the dial which offers remarkable composure and design abstinence compared to some modern Breitling watches, which, according to some people, go a bit far against textures, fonts, and colors. Besides the 24-hour scale on the rotating bezel, there is a fixed 24-hour scale on the dial – allowing users to get access to three different time zones with the Breitling Chronoliner. Same as the real Breitling Chronoliner, the mostly monochromatic dial of our replica Breitling is broken up by the red-tipped GMT hand. Also note that the slightly recessed contrast colored sub-dials are elegant as well.
Fitted with an sapphire crystal, the Breitling Chronoliner is waterproof to 100 meters. Inside the watch is the Breitling movement 24, aka. Swiss ETA Valjoux 7754, which is a Valjoux 7750 auto chronograph with a GMT hand. The 7754 comes with about two days of power reserve and is capable of working at 4Hz. The movements in the Breitling Chronoliner watches are further all COSC Chronometer certified. Chronograph and the date are offered by the movement. And also Breitling used an ETA movement for the Breitling Chronoliner which lower the price of this excellent watch.
There are two alternatives for Breitling Chronoliner bracelet. One is the Breitling “Ocean Classic” steel mesh bracelet, the other is the common Navitimer bracelet. Out of my own preference, I would choose the latter, because try as I might, I don’t think wearing “Milanese” metal bracelets so that stunning for daily use. Thanks for reading, I hope you would enjoy the review.
