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.
At Geneva Watch Days, Swiss made Breitling replica releases its sporty, highly functional Endurance Pro watch collection. This new line is offered at a great price/value proposition and is extremely high-tech and geared-for-performance in the everyday world that many of today’s active sports enthusiasts pursue.
Inspiration Behind The Breitling Endurance Pro Watch
In fact, the watch was developed by Breitling after discussions with German triathlete Jan Frodeno, who is a gold medal Olympic winner, and a multiple-time winner of the Ironman World Championships. He recently came on board with Breitling’s Triathlon Squad.
The Endurance Pro line is also inspired by the best fake Breitling Sprint watch from the 1970’s that included a pulsometer. During sports, it is great for the athlete to be able to measure heartbeat. As such, the new watches offer this function via an inner pulsometer scale bezel. They also feature bi-directional rotating bezels with the cardinal compass points engraved on them, great for outdoor use. Additionally, the Endurance Pro watches are fitted with Diver Pro rubber straps in the same color as the inner bezel ring that is the pulsometer scale. Breitling is also offering Outerknown Econyl® yarn NATO straps for sale separately.
Key Features Of The Breitling Endurance Pro Watches
Each of the 44mm Endurance Pro chronograph watches is fitted with a thermo-compensated SuperQuartz™ movement that is 10 times more accurate than traditional quartz movements. The Breitling Caliber 82 is a COSC-certified chronometer, attesting to its precision.
The perfect replica watches are also made of the brand’s proprietary Breitlight® case – ensuring light weight yet rugged durability. It is 3.3 times lighter than titanium. Its properties include anti-magnetism, hypoallergenic, corrosion resistant, scratch resistant and thermally stable. Exclusive to Breitling, the material is 100 percent made in Switzerland. Each of the multiple versions of the Endurance Pro retails for $3,000.
The colorful timepieces are offered in a range of hues from orange, to red, caution yellow, white and blue. The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova and the chronograph times to 1/10th of a second and 30 minutes. The watches are water resistant to 100 meters and are sold with a two-year warranty.
The Breitling Strava Challenge
The new fake Breitling Endurance Pro watches kick off the Breitling Endurance Pro Strava Challenge wherein competitors vie for prizes. Strava is a leading app for runners and cyclists because it allows them to analyze their activities. Via the Strava Challenge, which goes live today, participants will compete for prizes such as a Breitling Endurance Pro watch, a Breitling Colnago C64 bicycle, and other items. To be eligible for the prizes, competitors have to complete 500 minutes in the activity of choice in a two-week time period. The winners are selected totally at random.
The decade gone marked the occasion of the Breitling Navitimer’s sixtieth anniversary, and as that decade drew to a close, Breitling replica released what is an almost exact replica of that original reference, the 806. It seems now is as good a time as any to get on board the Breitling train and treat yourself to this prototypical pilot’s watch—but should you? The Navitimer Did It First Given that aeroplanes have only existed since the early 1900s, it stands to reason that pilots’ watches didn’t start appearing until then as well. There’s foresight and then there’s predicting the future, and you’d have to be a pretty clever sort of person to think ahead on the whole flight business and make a watch specifically for pilots.
Really, it’s the other way around. As flight became possible, the limitations revealed themselves, and for keeping time, there was a big one. People weren’t wearing wristwatches back then; they were wearing pocket watches. Now imagine straddling the Kitty Hawk, basically a glorified kite with an engine bolted on, and it’ll soon become clear that fumbling around for a pocket watch whilst trying not to plummet to the ground and die is not ideal.
It took only a year after the Wright Brothers’ maiden flight for things to change, and it was eccentric pilot Alberto Santos-Dumont who ushered in that change. He was a keen competition pilot, and for him, timekeeping had the edge over survival, and so his main concern was making sure he was winning. For that he needed a watch he could check without letting go of his contraption, and so he asked friend Louis Cartier to come up with something. The solution? The wristwatch. For a long time, the simple act of strapping a watch to a wrist was convenience enough for pilots, with the watches simply getting bigger and clearer. For almost fifty years there was no real advancement—that is, until Breitling decided to release the Navitimer.
It was no moment of lucid enlightenment—the Swiss made fake Breitling Navitimer was the culmination of three branches of specialist knowledge that only Breitling had available. First was the manufacture of chronographs, of which Breitling invented the typical twin-pusher layout we’re so familiar with today; second was experience in avionics, an industry Breitling supplied cockpit instruments to; and thirdly was a platform to build upon, the slide rule Chronomat, previously designed as a calculator tool for scientists, engineers and mathematicians. Put all that together and what do you get? The Navitimer, the first watch truly designed for pilots.
It’s A Proper Pilots’ Watch What separates the black dial copy Breitling Navitimer from the pilots’ watches before it is plainly evident on the dial; it looks as busy as an aircraft cockpit. Pilots need to know the time of course, and for half a century that was all the manufacturers of watches were willing to concede, but Breitling knew better. The Navitimer was to be a true pilots’ watch—not just a watch that’s more convenient to read without having to let go of the flight controls, but one that offered functionality beneficial specifically to pilots.
As I said, the design was borrowed from the earlier Chronomat, a watch that added simplicity to the complex calculations undertaken by professionals during the course of their daily work. Multiplication, division, rates of change, rule of three—it could do it all. Quite simply, Breitling clone was aiming for the stars with the Chronomat, intending for it to become the smartwatch of its generation, a wrist-worn computer in the true sense of the term that it hoped would become a must-have tool in industry.
It didn’t quite work out like that, but there was an alternative: use the company’s knowledge of aircraft instruments to recalibrate the Chronomat into a navigation timer—or Navitimer. Now it could be used to measure speed, rate of climb or descent, fuel consumption, distance—exactly the kinds of things a pilot might need to calculate in flight. To say it was a success is an understatement. The automatic movement replica Breitling watch was released exclusively through the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association—who actually urged Breitling to make the thing in the first place—as a must-have for in-flight problem-solving. No more loose slide rules, no more tables—a pilot could trust on their watch to make sure they got where they needed to go, all with a twist on the smoothly knurled bezel.
So, although the Navitimer is a long way off being the first watch made for pilots by some fifty years, it is the first watch made exclusively for pilots, that offers an inventory of functions that are not only useful in the air, but imperative. This is before smartphones, before digital computers, before a cockpit was festooned with screens and when the calculations were done in the pilot’s head. The Breitling Emergency’s built-in distress beacon may save a pilot if they crash, but the Navitimer stops them crashing in the first place.
The Watches of Switzerland Group (WOSG) will open a monobrand fake Breitling Boutique in Glasgow early next year.
The aaa quality replica Breitling currently has three authorised stockists in the city with Beaverbrooks, Laings and WOSG’s Mappin & Webb.
Details of the store have not been disclosed, but it looks certain to be located on the Buchanan Street pedestrianised retail thoroughfare, one of the busiest shopping streets in the UK. WOSG converted its Watches of Switzerland multibrand showroom at the top of the Buchanan Street hill into a Rolex boutique in July.
Recruitment for a retail manager for the Swiss luxury replica Breitling store is already underway, with the company looking for somebody with experience and understanding of clienteling, networking and events.
