Buying Guide: The Best UK Replica Breitling Watches From The 1950s

We like to talk about vintage copy watches a lot within the Fratello team. While the daily routine is largely focused on the most recent developments in the world of watches, the most fun for many of us lies in the world of yesteryear. It’s a world full of history, remarkable watches, incredible stories, and quirky details. It inspired us to come up with a series of articles focusing on the best watches per decade from a select group of brands. Some of them priceless; some of them still affordable. But all of them are remarkable watches. In this third installment, we will take a look at the best quality fake Breitling watches from the 1950s.

The cheap copy Breitling watches from the 1950s? What does that actually mean? Every week we try to come up with a small selection of special watches for several reasons. Maybe they are the icons, maybe they are the affordable options, maybe they are technically brilliant, or maybe they look amazing. It can be anything really as long as they stand out. We’ll try and mix up things as much as possible. And I will define an entry-point watch, my preferred choice, and we’ll close out with the icons where money is no object.
The great importance of Breitling in the fifties
Breitling was one of the most prolific watch brands in the 1950s. But I have to be honest here, while we decided to start this series in the 1950s, Breitling released some of its most iconic models starting in the 1940s. Mike wrote a great article about vintage black leather strap fake Breitling in conversation with two vintage clone Breitling experts @watchfred and @rene_jk. When you read it, you’ll quickly find out that the brand has shaped the way we look at watch design today heavily. And it started doing so in the 1940s with the Premier and the Chronomat. Especially when it comes to chronographs, Breitling is the brand that shaped what they look like today.
And over these last couple of years, Swiss movement copy Breitling has been picking up on that by releasing some great vintage re-issues. It has to be said that Breitling CEO Georges Kern and his team have been working with Fred Mandelbaum (watchfred) to make sure the re-issues are historically spot-on. It’s why they are praised by both vintage collectors and the wider watch buying audience. And you have to give the brand great credit for that. It has created a renewed relevance for the brand and its incredible history. And it won’t come as a surprise that you will find some of these icons in our list of five remarkable Breitling watches from the 1950s.

Swiss Made Fake Breitling And Kelly Slater’s Outerknown Create Stunning Sea Watch UK

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).

Brown Dial Fake Breitling Superocean Heritage ‘57 Outerknown Watch

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.
