With a warm color scheme and the novelty of numerals in a very attractive script, this would be a relevant entry into any Arabic-speaking enthusiast’s collection, as well as being a stand-out anomaly in any collection, regardless of linguistic leanings. While the Breitling Replica day/date function may prove a problem for non-Arabic speakers, the hands still work the same.
This was a solid entry, but it felt like a less harmonious pairing than that of Breitling Fake Swiss Watches and aviation. Something about the brand’s DNA implies its wares should always be zipping skyward, strapped to the wrist of a daredevil pilot, wing-walker, or would-be lemming happy to chuck itself into oblivion just because there’s nothing good on TV. Cars and boats are cool, and they do have their place in the Replica Breitling catalog.
The Replica Watch 41mm black steel case is comfortable on the wrist but has the added presence one would expect from an all-black timepiece. It is, amazingly, Breitling’s first watch to feature Arabic numerals.
