Breitling watches are, of course, renowned for being go-to watches for pilots. However, the Swiss brand also produces its share of professional-grade divers’ watches. The latest of which, the Breitling Superocean Replica Watches, made its debut at Baselworld 2014 and takes the honors as this week’s Watch to Watch.
The new Fake Breitling is designed for a high degree of underwater legibility, with its broad, unidirectional ratcheting bezel punctuated by black, rubber-incrusted numerals and indices. The dial also features large Arabic numerals with luminescent coating and an extra-sized day-date display in a window at 3 o’clock. The case, made of stainless steel, measures 44 mm in diameter and combines a satin-brushed finish on its surfaces with a polished finish on its sides. In keeping with its mission as a watch for serious diving, the new iced out breitling replica Superocean is water-resistant to 500 meters, thanks in part to its screw-locked crown with protective reinforcements that ensure the chronograph pushers cannot be engaged until they are unlocked.
Like all Breitling watches, the Breitling Replica Superocean Chronograph Steelfish contains a COSC-certified chronometer movement, in this case Breitling Caliber 13, with automatic winding, 25 jewels, and a speedy frequency of 28,800 vph. The chronograph function measures elapsed times to the nearest 1/4 second. The chronograph subdials are at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock on the dial, alongside a small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. The curved, extra-thick sapphire crystal is glareproofed on both sides. The Breitling Replica Watches is available with three dial colors, “Volcano”black, “Mariner” blue, and “Stratus” silver, and comes on a Breitling Professional steel bracelet or on Ocean Racer rubber or Pro Diver rubber straps.
IWC upgraded its Ingenieur collection of sports watches in 2013, incorporating design touches inspired by the brand’s partnership with the Mercedes-Benz AMG Petronas Formula One racing team. Among the models in the line is the Cheap IWC Replica Ingenieur Chronograph Silberpfeil, which pays tribute to a classic race car.The Chronograph Silberpfeil is named for the Mercedes-Benz W25 Silver Arrow (“Silberpfeil” in German), which famously got its name from a race at the Nürburgring in 1934 in which the IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Silberpfeil Replica WatchesMercedes pit crew stripped the white paint off of the car to enable it to achieve its weight limit and revealed its silvery aluminum bodywork.
The watch’s dial, available in either silver or brown, sports a cloud-like perlage pattern of overlapping circles — in watchmaking, usually found only on movement plates and bridges — that evokes the dashboard of the Luxury Replica Watch legendary Mercedes race car. The red elements on the dial, including the center-mounted chronograph seconds hand, echo the look of the Silver Arrow’s tachymeter and revolutions counter. The date display is integrated into the seconds subdial at 6 o’clock.The strap, which bonds a calfskin-inlay leather outer layer with an inner layer of rubber, is also reminiscent of 1930s motor racing tradition, in which sturdy leather straps were commonly found on drivers’ overalls and in the cockpits and bonnets of their vehicles. Stainless steel bracelets with fine-adjustment clasps are also available. The solid, stainless-steel IWC Replica Watches caseback features an engraved illustration of the Mercedes W25 Silver Arrow race car.
IWC’s in-house chronograph movement, Caliber 89361, powers the watch’s signature function, a chronograph with a flyback mechanism. The dial’s design enables stopped hours and minutes to be read easily on the same subdial at 12 o’clock. The central seconds counter can be used in conjunction with the tachymeter scale around the dial to calculate speeds. The flyback function is engineered with racing pit stops in mind: pressing the reset button returns the seconds hand instantly to zero and immediately starts timing another sequence. Cheap IWC Replica Pellaton winding system — developed by technical director and longtime Mercedes racing enthusiast Albert Pellaton — enables the movement to maintain a power reserve of 68 hours.
