Just like Omega, Swiss made fake Breitling has an incredible history when it comes to chronographs, and the Navitimer was introduced even before the Speedmaster. In 1952, the first Breitling Navitimer came to life, but it wasn’t available to the wider market until around 1956. Originally, it was a chronograph developed on request for the US Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Many variations followed (the 806 perhaps being most famous), but today’s cheap replica Breitling Navitimer B01 collection remains rather truthful to the original. It’s powered by Breitling’s in-house caliber B01, and just like all Breitling movements, it’s chronometer certified.
The 1:1 fake Breitling Navitimer UK has not been to the Moon like the Speedy, but it was the first wristwatch worn in space by a NASA astronaut. Scott Carpenter wore the Breitling Cosmonaute ref. 809 in space in May 1962, on the Mercury-Atlas 7 mission. That was just a few months before Wally Schirra wore his Speedmaster during the “Sigma 7” mission of the Mercury program in October. Later on, the Breitling Navitimer replica for sale gained popularity in the field of aviation rather than in the space programs.
The high quality fake Breitling Navitimer with its slide rule bezel is a true pilot’s watch and iconic as such. There’s a lot of variation available, but I’d settle for the “standard” version, the Navitimer B01 43 in steel. With 2022 being an anniversary year for the Breitling Navitimer replica for sale UK, I am very keen to see what’s coming up, though. The B01 chronograph caliber is a highly praised movement and is also used by Tudor for its Black Bay Chronograph. The retail price of the super clone Breitling Navitimer B01 43 is €8,350.
