“Black is black, I want my baby back”, goes the 1960s pop song. And for those wanting full black watches, PVD and carbon have been the best way for watchmakers to ensure black is indeed black. Keeping full black watches readable can be a challenge, but their contemporary look has been all the rage for the past 20 years.
Render unto Caesar that which is… Chanel’s: the full black J12 was one of the first all-black watches, in ceramic, with three hands or chronograph – and intentionally unisex. However, the sheen of the material in question, a real innovation in the year 2000, did not meet with widespread acceptance, and matt black prevailed.
Swiss made Breitling replica, a pioneer in this area, produced black PVD versions of most of its standard collections, including its Avenger, Super Avenger, Avenger Hurricane, and Avenger Blackbird.
In 2006, Hublot took the same direction with its ‘All Black’ Big Bang models. The collection is still in production, and regularly celebrates its anniversary dates with new models in response to a demand that shows no signs of waning.
Most luxury fake watches are given nicknames by collectors for various playful reasons. From copy Breitling to Panerai and, of course, Rolex, here are some of our favourites as well as the stories behind them.
The iconic stainless steel case fake Breitling 765 AVI collection isn’t just for pilots, even though it was initially designed as an aviators’ watch. The 765 AVI comes with a display that acts as a 15-minute countdown function. Why? Well, before taking flights pilots are required to make 15 minutes-worth of checks. Dubbed “Lucy Digital” by quick-witted collectors, this nickname refers to a 3.2-million-year-old fossilised human ancestor, which scientists named “Lucy”.
It was discovered in Ethiopia’s Afar region back in 1974. But be careful: before sharing this newly-acquired high quality Breitling fake watch trivia you should know that “Lucy Digital” only refers to the very first 765 AVI model, which is pictured above. Unveiled in 1953, two decades before good-old “Lucy” was even unearthed, the 765 AVI’s informal title comes from the idea that this reference is the origin of copy Breitling’s numerous 765 AVI watches. And trust us, there’s been a lot.
Bondi Beach is one of the world’s most legendary pieces of sand, a veritable temple to sun, surf and tanned bods.
Aussie fitness fanatics love working out down by the beachfront, whether that means jogging past the water, popping squats at the North Bondi outdoor gym, or swimming laps at the iconic Bondi Icebergs ocean pool.
That sort of health-conscious pageantry might be fine for the average Sydneysider, but we thought we ought to show the rest of Bondi what fitness really means. That’s why DMARGE teamed up with sporty Swiss watch brand fake Breitling on a groundbreaking new fitness competition that had the rest of Bondi sweating with envy.
To celebrate the release of the new quartz movement replica Breitling Endurance Pro, five of Sydney’s top athletes went head-to-head for the first-ever Breitling Endurance Pro Challenge down on Sydney’s most famous beach. Bondi lifeguard Clint Kimmins, CrossFit Games athlete Khan Porter, ex-rugby player Ben Seymor, body transformation coach Brock Ashby and Ironman Kendrick Louis competed across a series of challenges hosted by Commando Steve. Our five athletes certainly put themselves (and the Breitling Endurance Pro) to the test. We started them off with a 3km run – the boys quickly getting into the spirit of the competition. Then, brutal burpees, followed up by some savage sandbag ground to shoulder cleans, just to make sure their traps were really feeling the burn.
It wouldn’t be a Bondi fitness challenge without some beach action. Next was some soft sand sprints, and then finally, sprints in and out of the frosty morning surf. In the end, Khan Porter took home the gold – although all the athletes did themselves proud. Naturally, their best quality fake Breitling Professional Endurance Pro watches also withstood the tough Bondi conditions with ease. The Endurance Pro is the perfect copy watch for not only fitness-forward Aussies but anyone who’s interested in high-performance watches. Made from ultra-light, hardy ‘Breitlight’ and featuring a unique pulsometer inner bezel, the Endurance Pro is a tough timepiece for those who demand only the best from their watch.
Thankfully, you don’t need to be one of Sydney’s most elite athletes to get your hands on one – check out the Swiss replica Endurance Pro range online or at your nearest Breitling boutique.
The latest luxe iteration of the collaborative Superocean Heritage ’57 gets fancy with a 18K rose gold bezel.
The most daring adventures deserve an equally daring, stylish watch, so for testing the limits on the water and on land, you could do worse than the new replica Breitling Superocean Heritage ‘57 Outerknown Watch. It’s the third launch in the ongoing partnership between heritage watchmaker Breitling and sustainable, surf-inspired menswear brand Outerknown (founded in part by legendary surfer Kelly Slater, fittingly enough).
Breitling and Outerknown have previously teamed up on two highly covetable, investment-level watches that blend great looks, standout functionality and impressive specs, and the Superocean Heritage ‘57 Outerknown Watch carries on that lineage quite handsomely.
The perfect fake Superocean Heritage has been coined as a “modern-retro sea watch,” made with sustainability in mind thanks to the use of an ECONYL® nylon strap for an eco-conscious appeal (the material is made from recycled nylon waste). The design itself harkens back to Breitling’s 1957 design for throwback style that goes the distance.
“We’re thrilled to be able to build on our strong partnership with Kelly and everyone at Outerknown. The projects we work on with them go beyond watchmaking,” said Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “They underscore Breitling’s commitment to sustainability.
It helps that in addition to its seriously environmentally friendly nature, it’s the perfect sort of watch to wear on beach vacations and for surfing sessions aplenty. The rugged NATO strap will also hold up more than admirably to repeated wear on land.
We love the bronze-colored dial and the sized-just-right 42mm case diameter, and we also love the fact that there’s a limited-edition upgrade of the same silhouette, one featuring an 18K red-gold bezel.
