Replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II Watches With Tudor-Developed Movement

Breitling-Superocean-Heritage-II-1

The Breitling Superocean Heritage is a classic diver’s watch that’s now celebrating its 70th anniversary with a slight design refresh and a brand-new movement developed with Tudor watches. The new Breitling caliber B20 is derived from the Tudor Caliber MT5612 used in their Black Bay replica watches, among others. In fact, Tudor’s new Black Bay chronograph borrows from the Breitling B01 caliber as part of what I call their “movement exchange program” this year. Like the previous version, the replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II collection will include a 42mm and 46mm three-hand automatic with date as well as a 46mm automatic chronograph.

Initially released in 1957, the Breitling Superocean is still going strong in many sizes, colors, and configurations. In addition to their modern, sportier Superocean collection, Breitling smartly released the vintage-inspired Superocean Heritage collection a few years back.

Aesthetic changes are pretty discreet, with a new ceramic ring around the minute track replacing the old steel one, allowing for the color to match the dial in a seamless look. It’s actually pretty noticeable when compared with an older model, as you can see above. It’s minor but a refinement that definitely brings a higher-end look. Also, for those who look closely, the minute hand is now slightly more sword-shaped, and the hour hand now has a steel partition in the lume in the arrow’s head.

Of course, the major new change for the three-handers is the new B20 movement, a self-winding, 28-jewel caliber which vibrates at 28,800bph. It is Breitling’s take on the Tudor MT5612 movement which provides a solid 70-hour power reserve. It’s clear that both brands are benefitting from each other’s “specialties,” with the Tudor three-hand movement applied here, which would likely drive the cost up considerably if Breitling were to develop it themselves, and Tudor adaping the Breitling B01 movement (not the one used in the replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II chronograph, mind you).

The 46mm replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II Chronograph also sports some subtle upgrades and alterations. Like its three-hand siblings, the chronograph now has a ceramic bezel and the same slight changes to the handset. The replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II Chronograph features the trusty old caliber B13, which is based off the Valjoux 7750. The automatic movement operates at 28,800vph and has a power reserve of around 42 hours.

The new replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II collection is a subtle upgrade in terms of aesthetics with the three-handers reflecting the increased value and interest among buyers in the origin of a watch’s movement. The new replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II will come in a variety of dial colors (in this case, Volcano Black, Gun Blue, and Stratus Silver) and with a huge variety of straps like leather, crocodile leather, the rubber Aero Classic or Ocean Racer, or the new rubber-leather Ocean Classic. The chronograph will be available with either a Volcano Black, Mariner Blue, or Copperhead Bronze dial, and customers will be able to choose between leather, crocodile leather, the rubber Aero Classic or Ocean Racer, or the new rubber-leather Ocean Classic straps.

Replica Breitling and Bentley release new limited-edition Middle East chronograph

Bentley Supersports B55

When it comes to partnerships, the blissful marriage of Breitling and Bentley is one that we’ve always been firmly behind. Naturally, news that the latest collaboration from the two luxury brands in conjunction with the release of the Bentley Continental Super-Sports is music to our ears.

With the Bentley Super Sports B55, the Swiss replica watchmaker has released a new limited-edition chronograph – with an even more limited 40 pieces specifically for the Middle East – that for the first time will combine a chronograph with an electronic movement.

The 14th timpiece the brands have collaborated on, this sporty timepiece is crammed full of enough timekeeping equipment to fool you into believing that you are actually a racing driver.

With its combination of analogue and digital displays mean that the watch may not look like your typical Breitling replica, but it does have the same style references to keep you interested.

Clearly taking its design reference points from Bentley’s motorsports history, the Super Sports B55 comes with a titanium case and carbon dial with a digital clock smack bang in the middle of it face.

Yes, the launch of the replica watch may have coincided to celebrate the release of the new Super Sport, but it has been created to works alongside Bentley’s cars through a corresponding smartphone app, developed specifically for fake Breitling.

The timepiece’s chronograph records up to 1/100th of a second, and with its smartphone connection, can store timings and run three different functions, all suited to the automobile world for when you want to see how good the Bentley Super Sports actually is.

First under the bracket of racing features is the ‘Chrono Rally’, which can record up to 30 stages of a race, including the departure date of the rally, start time and any penalties incurred. Next, the ‘Chrono Race’ function is used for track races, it can record split times for each lap and calculate the average speed per lap. Thirdly, the ‘Regularity rally’ function allows watch users to predefine target times and check if those targets have been met.

Breitling Colt Skyracer Replica Watch At An Extremely Reasonable Price

Breitling-Colt-Skyracer-watch-1

Whether or not you agree with me, I feel that this is the watch Breitling should be making – so it’s good that they actually are. At Baselworld 2017, Breitling will debut this Colt Skyracer, which is the tool watch everyone should want from the brand. A tool watch is supposed to be comfortable, durable, legible, and reliable – something that Breitling has, in my opinion, designed the Breitling Colt Skyracer to be.

In a nutshell, this is a new accessibly-priced (Breitling actually says it is at “an extremely reasonable price”) luxury replica watches which combines Breitling’s still new Breitlight carbon case material with a straightforward easy-to-read dial, and contains a very-accurate thermocompensated caliber 74 SuperQuartz movement (which is COSC Chronometer certified – which is a different certification process and standards for quartz and mechanical replica watches). The battery has a life of eight years. If traditionalist watch lovers are balking at the idea of a quartz watch, they shouldn’t. This is not your standard cheapo quartz movement but something born of an era when professional watches needed extreme accuracy. Compare a 10-second deviation per year for a thermocompensated quartz movement versus up to 15 seconds per month for a standard quartz movement. Again, a mechanical movement is at best accurate to 1-2 seconds per day.

Breitling continues to remain very popular with aviation professionals and other high-risk activity enthusiasts who need durable and reliable instruments. Breitling has a long history of making such replica watches and, moreover, has been using SuperQuartz movements in certain watches in their collection (such as the iconic Aerospace) for over 20 years. People who like nice luxury replica watches often also love mechanical movements, but everyone knows you can’t rely on them in the same way you can an electronic instrument. For that reason, Breitling has been producing SuperQuartz-based replica watches continuously, servicing a market of real aviation and military professionals with high-end watches at a time when most other brands stopped doing so. For the most, part Omega is the only real competitor to still make (some) quartz watches for professionals (with the X-33).

Thus, the Breitling Colt Skyracer is for people who actually need high-accuracy on their wrist but want something a bit more interesting than your standard quartz watch. Yes, this is a niche market of consumers, but it is a market nonetheless, and the good thing is that timepieces such as this are true tool watches. Not convinced? Well then just check out the ruler indicator replica Breitling put on the rubber strap!

Watch fans interested in Breitling’s Breitlight carbon case material will be happy to see its use in the Colt Skyracer. Not only is the Breitling Colt Skyracer much more affordable than the other current replica watches Breitling produces with Breitlight, but it is wearable. Breitling introduced Breitlight on the Avenger Hurricane (hands-on here) in 2016… with a 50mm wide case which sized it out of wearability for many people. The Breitling Colt Skyracer is “just” 45mm wide (and 13.5mm thick), but it is also almost six times lighter than steel given the black carbon composite case material. The case is water-resistant to 100 meters and has a rotating bezel with an AR-coated domed sapphire crystal over the dial.

Breitling further claims that the Breitlight case is super durable and shock-resistant. It has decent scratch-resistance as well, but I do think that despite the watch surviving abuse, it will show battle scars if beaten up too much. If you recall, I mentioned that ruler on the strap. The watch apparently has a quick-release system for the strap, so that they can be taken off and used to actually measure things… and then placed back on the case.

Dial legibility for the Breitling Colt Skyracer is quite good. The lumed hands and characterful Arabic hour numerals are sensible without being too serious. I do like that Breitling was able to include a healthy level of personality into the design – which is important for swiss replica watches since there is always a distinct element to why people choose to buy them. Also on the dial is a dedicated scale for 24-hour military time as well as a date indicator window. This is a good example of a conservative tool watch dial that also manages to not be boring.

It’s quite likely that the swiss Breliting Colt Skyracer reference X74320E4|BF87|293S|X20S.1 is going to be the most affordable new Breitling of 2017. With that said, it is going to be up to consumers to decide if $2,000 is “extremely reasonably priced” or not. Though, for a Brietling today, that is a good deal, for sure.
