In the 1960s, inspired by the cinematography of Jacques Cousteau and probably just as much by James Bond, the underwater world became a new playground for tourists and vacation adventurers. The UK 1:1 fake Breitling Superocean Slow Motion was a stripped-down diver created to address the burgeoning leisure dive market. It was chunky in every detail, including the display, for no-nonsense legibility.
In an innovative move that took some refinement, the original Slow Motion dispensed with the second hand on the basis that divers really only needed to know how many minutes they were under the surface. Instead, Willy Breitling used a chronograph-style seconds hand, with an unmissable square marker on it, that would measure dive time. It circled the dial in an hour rather than a minute—hence the name Slow Motion. A 1969 Breitling replica for sale perfected the new display with an indicator window to reassure divers that the dive counter was in fact active.
This week, to time with everybody you know posting annoyingly from exotic beach locations you’re not at on Instagram, AAA quality replica Breitling added to its longstanding canon of dive watches that echo the bold aesthetic of the Slow Motion while adding some funky new color into the bargain. The Slow Motion’s innovative dive counter has reverted to conventional seconds in the new watch based on modern needs. While updated, the look of the new family of high quality fake watches—which comes in 46, 44, 42, and 36mm sizes in steel, steel and gold, and bronze—is closely faithful to its inspiration in most other respects and echoes the original Slow Motion in its display with a noticeable broad track in contrasting white around the dial.
Unlike the original however, the cheap super clone watches are driven by a COSC-certified Swiss movement fake Breitling Caliber 17 chronometer movement. The multiple permutations of metals and dials in the family are broad enough to be worth careful study, lest you miss one. As well as classic black, white, or navy dials, there’s olive green or brown (with bronze or steel), aqua blue, and orange. A number of matching rubber straps of the luxury fake Breitling Superocean offer a further rainbow of possibilities. All you need now is a beach.
