Breitling Superocean Héritage II

A classic diver’s replica watch the Breitling Superocean Héritage II celebrates its 60th anniversary with a design refresh and a brand-new movement developed with Tudor.

The new Breitling calibre takes inspiration from the Tudor Caliber MT5612 used in the popular Black Bay replica watches. The replica Breitling Superocean Héritage II comes in a few different models at 42mm or 46mm and the option of a three-hand automatic with date and a 46mm automatic chronograph.

Originally released in 1957, the Superocean Héritage collection is available in a range of sizes, colours and configurations. The external fake watch updates are discreet yet sleek with a new ceramic ring to match the dial, giving the overall aesthetic a more seamless look. There have also been some changes to the shape of the hands (triangular for the hours, and lozenge-like for the minutes), along with slightly cone-shaped hour markers, reinforces ties with the 1957 model, while ensuring optimal legibility enhanced by luminescent markers.

Dedicated to modern-day explorers the Superocean Héritage II has all the technical qualities that have made it the perfect companion for the finest adventurers of land, at sea and in the air.

Breitling returns to the golden age of replica watch design with the Superocean Heritage

You’ll often hear people who like replica watches talk wistfully about the golden age of watch design. Give or take a few years, that fell between 1950 and 1970. It spawned some of the most beautiful watches ever made – and led to one of the industry’s most fruitful periods at the cash register. So good were the best of that period that the Swiss are still making them today.

Of that generation, some are lionised above all others. Fake Rolex’s Submariner (1953), Omega’s Speedmaster (1957) and TAG Heuer’s Carrera (1963) spring to mind. Breitling has a couple, too. Its 1952 Navitimer was a calculator for the wrist and became a flyboy go-to. And then there was the Superocean.

Introduced in 1957, it has lived in the shadows of the Navitimer, but many watch aficionados consider the two of equal importance. For starters, the Superocean played a pivotal role in popularising a category of replica watches we now take for granted – the diver’s watch.

Nowadays, diver’s watches are fashionable accoutrements first and tools second, deployed primarily as promises of masculinity. But the Superocean and its ilk were made for purpose, and in direct response to the growing popularity of diving.

Water resistant replica watches were developed with rotating bezels with minute scales on them that, when aligned to the watch’s minute hand, became countdown devices. Breitling’s original Superocean boasted water resistance of 200 metres (Replica Rolex’s original Submariner could manage only 100 metres).

Over the past six decades, the Superocean has evolved and there have been many versions of it. In 2007, Breitling brought out the Superocean Héritage. A decade on from that, Breitling has breathed new life into it again, introducing time and date only models of 42mm and 46mm, and a 46mm chronograph piece, all with a nod to the design’s 60th anniversary.

The bezel inserts are now made of scratch and fade resistant ceramic and the movements come with power reserves of 70 hours and more, as well as chronometer certification for accuracy. As per the 1950s original, though, they’re also available on stainless steel mesh bracelets (chic, versatile, superyacht-approved), and they’re all water resistant to 200 metres.

The Superocean lives on. As it should. It’s a staunch piece of design that, like so many from the golden age that bore it, remains resilient to the whims of changing fashions.

Replica Breitling for Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition

Breitling introduced its proprietary case material, Breitlight, on the Avenger Hurricane watch in 2016, and has used the high-tech alloy in several other models since. Now the brand brings Breitlight to its automotive-influenced replica Breitling for Bentley family – on a fake watch that pays tribute to the British marque’s new Continental GT automobile: the Bentley GT “Dark Sapphire” Edition.

Breitling_Bentley-GT-Dark-Sapphire-Edition_reclining_1000

The watch, which is limited to 500 pieces, made its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, alongside the vehicle that inspired it, Bentley’s third-generation Continental Grand Touring model, with a new six-liter W12 TSI engine, state-of-the-art onboard equipment, and a refined, hand-crafted interior. Like all Breitling replica for Bentley replica watches — the fruits of a decade-plus partnership between the Swiss replica watches brand and the luxury carmaker — it bears design influences drawn from Bentley cars.

The 48-mm-diameter case is constructed of Breitlight — a high-tech material that Breitling says is four times lighter than titanium but significantly harder. Among its other listed attributes are exceptional resistance to scratches, traction, and corrosion; thermal stability; and antimagnetic and non-allergenic properties, in addition to being warmer to the touch than other metals and, aesthetically, having a black-streaked surface texture, which here takes on an intriguing bluish shimmer reminiscent of the car’s “dark sapphire” livery.

Continuing the specific Bentley-influenced design touches, the dial features a diamond motif that echoes the look of the Continental GT’s dashboard controls and interior. The subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, and the sweeping central hand identify this replica watch as one of Breitling’s “30-second” chronograph models, which use a system inspired by a 1926 swiss Breitling patent — in which the central hand makes a complete sweep around the dial in only half a minute, thus ensuring elapsed time readings to 1/8 second. Fifteen elapsed chronograph minutes are tallied on the subdial at 3 o’clock and six elapsed hours on the register at 6 o’clock, while running seconds are displayed at 9 o’clock. The words “30-second chronograph” in distinctive blue tone on the predominantly black dial, also speaks to this world-exclusive system.

Breitling_Bentley-GT-Dark-Sapphire-Edition_dashboard_1000

The COSC-certified movement inside the Dark Sapphire chassis, Breitling’s self-winding Caliber B06, powers the timekeeping functions, the 30-second stopwatch, and a simple calendar, with date displayed in a window at 4:30, and also offers a power reserve of 70 hours when fully wound.

The Breitling for Bentley GT “Dark Sapphire” Edition is secured to the wrist by a black rubber strap specially created for this model, with a stitched-in-blue blue diamond motif matching that of the dial and a push-piece-operated folding clasp.

Replica Breitling Chronospace Evo B60 Watch

Breitling-Chronospace-Evo-B60-1

Historically speaking, quartz innovations have long enjoyed a key role in Breitling’s range of modern offerings – particularly as a cornerstone of the brand’s Professional line of aviation-themed replica watches. Now joining that collection is a brand first: the Chronospace EVO B60, fitted with Breitling’s very first in-house manufactured SuperQuartz chronograph movement – a flyback characterized with a 24-hour register, a center-minute counter, and a few neat features exclusive to the Grenchen manufactory.

Breitling-Chronospace-Evo-B60-2

Despite typically functioning as a more approachable price point for most Swiss brands, quartz movements have remained a realm of innovation for replica Breitling. Sometimes as a compelling, lower cost-of-entry alternative like the “Breitlight” Colt Skyracer, and sometimes not – like the more sophisticated Exospace B55 Connected, which marries a thermo-compensated SuperQuartz movement with a Bluetooth module to bring call, text, and calendar notifications to the LCD fields on the dial.

Breitling-Chronospace-Evo-B60-3

The new replica Breitling Chronospace EVO B60 sits somewhere between the aforementioned – chiefly as an ultra-accurate quartz chronograph with a few Breitling-exclusive features designed to best serve its core user base: professional pilots, and watch enthusiasts looking for a reliable tool watch that does a little more than its quartz competition.

Breitling-Chronospace-Evo-B60-4

On paper, the new replica Breitling B60 movement behaves similarly to the ETA-manufactured 251.292, which is essentially a flyback quartz chronograph – and we’ve seen this before, in the Breitling Chronospace EVO Night Mission introduced late last year. It’s a chronometer-certified, thermocompensated “SuperQuartz” movement, which is rated to +/- 10 seconds a year, compared to standard quartz movements which tend to drift up to 15 seconds in a month. However, while the B60 maintains that accuracy along with the flyback chronograph functionality, it also introduces a center-stop minute counter, in addition to a handy 24-hour counter at 9:00. Furthermore, the movement carries a lap function, which stops the chronograph hands to measure split times, then jumps the hands ahead to resume measuring the total elapsed flight or lap time.

Breitling-Chronospace-Evo-B60-5

From a visual aesthetic standpoint, the new Chronospace has a fair bit in common with the Chronospace EVO Night Mission mentioned previously – both are housed in nicely finished, 43mm titanium cases, which measure just under 12mm thick each. However, on the new B60, the three contrasting registers are now clustered more closely to the center of the dial, which brings a little more balance to an otherwise busy presentation, toeing that fine line in a way that only replica Breitling can.

Replica Breitling Celebrates the UK Tour of Their DC-3 Plane

“The most amazing view is the unique perspective to see Earth as a planet; the big, round, mostly blue ball floating in space,” said Mark Kelly as he described one of the best views he had ever seen while orbiting in space. “And then you realize that you have 7.5 billion people living on this “island” in the solar system.”

Kelly, the American astronaut, retired UK Navy Captain, and naval combat pilot during the Gulf Wars, went on to describe the sensation of sitting in a space shuttle, strapped into the seat during take off, and then shot into the air.

“It feels like the hand of God reaching down and ripping you into space,” said Kelly, relaying the initial feeling after blast off. “You’re going from 0-17,500 miles per hour in 8.5 minutes.”

Kelly’s detailed story recalling his first lift off in the Space Shuttle Endeavor delighted watch enthusiasts and fake Breitling clients as they gathered for a celebratory evening at Shreve, the West Coast premier jewelry and watch boutique, to toast the world tour of cheap Breitling’s Douglas DC- 3 plane’s landing in San Francisco earlier that day.

The vintage 77 year-old twin engine, propeller driven DC-3 plane was heralded in the 1930’s as a revolutionary aircraft due to its efficient usage of fuel and long distance capabilities. It was the first of its kind to fly a maximum of 14 hours without stopping to refuel. Initially flown as a commercial airline under American Airlines, it was used to fly military missions during 1942-1944, returning to commercial aviation after the war.

Breitling’s sponsorship of the restoration of the historic DC-3 plane demonstrates the brand’s commitment to sharing its passion for aviation and its conservation. There are currently only 150 planes remaining worldwide in working condition.

“Breitling’s dedication to aviation has spanned for more than 100 years and is one of the core qualities of our identity. It was important for UK to support the restoration of the Breitling DC-3 as part of our commitment to preserving aeronautical heritage,” said Thierry Prissert, UK President of fake Breitling.

To celebrate the aviation prowess of the DC-3, swiss Breitling has set a cracking pace to break the world record as the oldest plane to circumnavigate the globe within seven months. Launching on March 9th, 2017, the tour began in Geneva, Switzerland, and will conclude in September at the replica Breitling Sion airshow in Sion, Switzerland.

Its route will take the plane through the Balkans, the Middle East, Asia, and across the UK visiting such cities as Zagreb, Athens, Tel Aviv, Dubai, Karachi, Phuset, Shanghai, Taipei, Okinawa and then onto a multi city tour in the UK entering through Alaska, stopping at 13 major cities like Seattle, San Francisco and traveling across to NY.

The pilot, Francesco Agullo, and a small crew are at the helm of the aircraft that’s slowly making its way back to Europe.

“This aircraft played such an important role in American history and it is a privilege to share it with the American aviation fans,” says Agullo.

To commemorate the world tour, Breitling has launched a limited edition of their classic Navitimer, a favorite among pilots. The chronograph, limited to 500 pieces, features an engraved caseback with the swiss Breitling DC-3 World tour logo memorializing the record-breaking flight. The replica watch measures 46mm and is powered by the Breitling Caliber 01 and is equipped with a circular slide rule that’s specially designed for pilots to handle flight calculations: speed, distance, fuel consumption, rate of climb or descent and conversion of miles to kilometers or nautical miles.

Breitling-DC-3-Limited-Edition-Navitimer_sml2
Navitimer Breitling DC-3 Limited Edition

The pilots and the crew are currently wearing the replica watches and will be on sale once the tour has ended. Included with the watch is a flight logbook, signed by Captain Agullo, documenting the global journey.

“Having these replica breitling watches circle the globe on one of the most iconic planes in history allows UK to share our passion for aviation with people in the UK,” says Prissert.

Mark Kelly has worn Breitling on several of his missions and often wears his Breitling Emergency, the wristwatch that features a built-in dual frequency personal locator beacon.

Kelly, along with his fellow astronaut twin brother, Scott, serve as ambassadors of Breitling replica, joining a list of other aviation enthusiasts including John Travolta, Aude Lemordant, World Aerobatics Champion, Mika Brageot, Breitling Racing Team Pilot, and Franky Zapata, the inventor of the Flyboard Air.

And as for the astronaut’s next mission, he’s launched a new venture called World View Enterprises, a company working to offer space travel to the public through high altitude balloons. The price for the ride? A mere $175. It’ll be ready within the next few years.

In the meantime, Kelly is traveling the country promoting interest in space travel and the preservation of the earth.

“We’re all not moving to Mars any time soon, so we have to make sure we take care of this planet.”

Milestone Replica Watches From Patek Philippe, Rolex, Longines, Audemars and Breitling

Sea-Dweller_126600_PK13-copy-1
The Rolex Sea-Dweller.

Watch brands love to celebrate anniversaries. Everything from foundational dates to anniversaries of key collections are fair game for a special edition, a collection overhaul or an improved movement. Here are five anniversary editions being released this year by replica Patek Philippe, Rolex, Longines, Audemars Piguet and Breitling.

RO_26331ST-OO-1220ST-03_SDT_PRCMYK-copy
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph.

The chronograph version of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak has become one of the world’s most iconic watches since it was introduced 20 years ago. To mark the occasion, a special anniversary RO Chronograph breaks the monotone mold and goes two-tone, with subdials a different color than the main dial. The three steel models and four 18k rose gold models all have the same automatic Caliber 2385, with a vertical clutch and a 40-hour power reserve, and the replica watches are water resistant to 50 meters. The main dial retains the trademark tapisserie pattern that is signature to the Royal Oak series.

Superocean-Heritage-II-46
Breitling Superocean Heritage II.

The Breitling Superocean Heritage II celebrates the 60th anniversary of the the collection. It retains design features of the original 1957 model, including triangular hour hand, lozenge-like minute hand, and cone-shaped hour markers. A new ceramic ring on the bezel matches the dial, and the chronograph version comes with a rubber/leather strap. The 42mm and 46mm versions contain the replica Breitling manufacture Caliber B20, and the chronograph contains the Tudor Caliber MT5612 – which represents one aspect of the recent cooperation between the two brands that are now pooling their expertise in the development and production of certain mechanical movements.

6006G_001_cotD_rvb
Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 6006G.

In the case of the swiss Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 6006G, it is the movement that marks an anniversary this year. Patek developed the Caliber 240 in 1977, at the height of the quartz era, when men’s wristwatches were much smaller. It had to be slim to compete with the much smaller proportions made possible by quartz technology, something achieved partly by using a small off-center rotor recessed into the plate. The movement is only 2.53mm thick, and today it is a mainstay of the slim Calatrava collection. The new Ref. 6006G contains the Caliber 240 PS C, with silicon-based components and a 70-hour power reserve.

Sea-Dweller_126600_PK13-copy-2
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller.

The Rolex Sea-Dweller turns 50 this year, and gets a magnified date window to celebrate the occasion. The cyclops window, as it is called, has become an iconic feature of the fake Rolex Datejust and Submariner replica watches, but was never used before on a Sea-Dweller. The 2017 Sea-Dweller is not a limited edition but a renewed piece that replaces its predecessor in the core collection. The watch has been given three other updates: a larger case, a new movement and a redesigned bracelet. It contains The swiss Rolex automatic Caliber 3235, which complies with replica Rolex’s -2/+2 second daily accuracy rating, a higher standard than the industry norm.

1500903922-L3.674.4.50.9
Longines Legend Diver

The Longines Legend Diver marks a double anniversary of sorts – it celebrates the 10th anniversary of the 1997 re-issue of a diver’s watch first introduced in 1960. Original details include the domed crystal and case shape. The new model has all the hallmarks of a modern dive watch, including a unidirectional rotating bezel – in this case, an internal bezel that can be locked – a screwed-down crown and caseback, and 300-meter water resistance. The indexes, digits and hands are covered with Super-LumiNova, which stand out against a black lacquered dial. It contains the automatic Caliber L633 (ETA 2824/2).

Replica Breitling Avenger Hurricane Now Available in 45-mm Case

Breitling’s Avenger Hurricane debuted last year in a massive 50-mm case made of the brand’s proprietary Breitlight metal. This year, in a bit of good news for those with smaller wrists and more modest tastes, Breitling is launching a version of the replica watch with a slightly less voluminous, but still substantial, 45-mm case, in two dial colors.

Breitling-Avenger-Hurricane-45_pair

The new 45-mm replica Breitling Avenger Hurricane retains the Breitlight case of its larger predecessor, and also incorporates the 12-hour dial design of the most recent models launched earlier this year. Breitlight is a proprietary high-tech material that is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel but significantly harder than both. Breitling replica also touts the material’s exceptional resistance to scratches, traction, and corrosion; thermal stability; and antimagnetic and non-allergenic properties. Warmer to the touch than other metals, Breitlight is also notable for its mottled surface texture.

Breitling-Avenger-Hurricane-45_Black-Dial_side

The watch’s case is water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet) and has a unidirectional rotating bezel with rider tabs. The screw-locked crown and chronograph push-pieces have a grooved checkerboard pattern for a non-slip grip, a feature aimed at pilots wearing gloves. The extra-thick sapphire crystal has been glareproofed on both sides and the hands and numerals — the latter in a military-style stencil font are luminous.

Breitling-Avenger-Hurricane-45_Yellow-Dial_side

Driving the watch’s timekeeping, date display, and 1/4-second chronograph functions is Breitling’s tried-and-true Caliber B01, with automatic winding, a 28,800-vph frequency, a 70-hour power reserve, and like all replica Breitling in-house movements, a COSC chronometer certification. The dial available in “Volcano black” or “Cobra yellow” features a date window at 4:30; chronograph subdials for 30 minutes and 12 hours at 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock, respectively; and a small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. The strap has a rubber inner lining and an exterior made of anthracite high-resistance military textile fiber. The new replica Breitling Avenger Hurricane models are at retailers now, priced at $8,390.

Breitling reserves 20 special-edition replica watches for the Middle East

breitling-replica
The Middle East Chronoliner B04 watches are engraved with the words “special delivery”.

Luxury Swiss replica watch brand Breitling has created only 100 pieces of its latest timepiece, the Chronoliner B04, and of those, 20 have been reserved for the Middle East market.

If you’re on the lookout for a truly special watch to give a loved one for Eid, this just may be it. Designed in a rich, navy blue hue, the watch features a dual timezone system, sleek, steel case and sporty rubber Aero Classic strap that’s embossed to mimic the pattern of Breitling’s steel mesh bracelets from the 1950s. The fake watch is ultra-durable, being water-resistant up to 100 metres, and featuring a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel. The Middle East replica watches feature engravings on the casebacks, reading “special delivery” – a sign of exclusivity that’s sure to strike a chord with consumers here.

“The Chronoliner offers a blend of luxury and performance in an all-blue livery limited series that will appeal to our Middle East aviation aficionados. With its automatic chronograph, its second timezone display in 24-hour mode and its high-tech ceramic rotating bezel serving to read off a third-time zone, the Chronoliner has asserted itself as the authentic flight captain’s watch,” says Aed Adwan, a manager with replica Breitling Middle East. “In addition to being the perfect companion for our aviation professionals, the model is also well suited to our jet-setting Middle East customers who frequently travel for both business and pleasure.”

The 20 replica watches are available at Breitling boutiques across the UAE.

Vintage Replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II Watches

For a brand most famous for its vintage and modern aviation replica watches, Breitling has been no stranger over the past 60 years to branching outside its usual airborne comfort zone. It all began in 1957 with the company’s release of a dive watch constructed to compete with some of that era’s greats, the original replica Breitling Superocean. Upon the arrival of the Omega Seamasters, Rolex Submariners, and Blancpain Fifty Fathomses, the growing trend of hobby diving ripened the market for new players and new designs, and with this in mind Breitling sought out and succeeded to carve itself a name under the sea as well as in the sky. Today, the Superocean series (or more accurately the Superocean II series), is a collection of robust and highly visible dive watches that combines the styles of dial complexity and rugged construction the brand is best known for. Now, first in 2007 with the Superocean Heritage, and again this year with the Superocean Heritage II, Breitling is once again returning to the roots of the series to produce a watch inspired by the utilitarian pieces that started it all.

Breitling_Superocean_Heritage_1957
Replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II next to its 1957 predecessor

Arriving to boutiques in both 42-mm and 46-mm steel variations, the new breitling replica watches feature an array of interesting color combinations — six for both sizes, 120 total if including options for straps. Offering this level of customization is a practice that has long made this brand a fan favorite. Its case uses long, slightly rounded lugs, a large crown with no guards, and a thick ceramic unidirectional bezel with bold indices at the quarter-hour marks (available in either black, maroon, or blue). On its reflective, almost sunburst dial (in silver, blue, black, or maroon) reside applied indices at each hour, bolder at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions, with a double mark above the applied Breitling replica vintage-style logo and printed descriptors. At the 6 o’clock position rests a date window, and traveling around the dial are the historically inspired arrow and sword hands.

Breitling_Superocean_Heritage_II_maroon
The watch is available in silver, blue, black, and maroon dials.

Powering both the 42 and 46-mm variations is the Breitling Caliber B20, based on the Tudor Caliber MT5612 used in both the Tudor Pelagos and Black Bay series, and capable of a 70-hour power reserve. Interestingly, Breitling has opted to advertise the use of Tudor’s movement with the fake watch, which is a true testament to its high quality and wide appreciation as both brands’ pieces are in relatively similar price categories. With that said, both sizes of the piece are being offered at $475, and should become more available in the coming months with the phasing out of the original Superocean Heritage from 2007.

Breitling Caliber B20 is based on the Tudor MT5612

I don’t think it would be fair to declare this watch as a direct homage to Breitling’s 1957 diver, but the modern piece obviously draws many of its influences from the first few years of the series. On its dial, especially, you’ll notice the all-lower case “superocean” script, the vintage logo (although now in applied gold instead of white print), and the slightly elongated hour and minute hands. While its bezel continues to feature bolding on the quarter hour marks, its crown offers a slight roundness and fake Breitling has nixed the modern addition of crown guards. Also, the lugs have a length and cut to them reminiscent of the vintage piece.

Breitling_Superocean_Heritage_II_black
The modern piece’s bezel is made of ceramic.

The differences between the two, however, are much more stark. Besides modern manufacturing updates like the ceramic bezel and luxury finishing, the contemporary piece has forgone a few key dial elements that distinguish it from its ancestor. Most obvious is its lack of circular, luminescent quarter-hour markers, but also noticeable is its use of rectangular and trapezoidal applied hour indices as compared to the vintage model’s wedge markers, which were both printed and applied. The date window, while certainly a useful addition (and one available due to the Tudor movement), was also not present in the earliest models of the watch. Finally, while the modern case certainly derives its influences from the mid-20th century model, its bezel is significantly more decorated through contemporary refinement, and its lugs have lost some of the thin sharpness of the past.

Breitling_Superocean_Heritage_II_silver
The hour indices and date window are modern additions.

While vintage replica Breitling Superocean models are sometimes overshadowed in auction houses and private collections by its Golden Era competitors, they are still extraordinary fake watches to find and maintain a good name for themselves in what often seems like a mythologized period of horology. With that said, while the modern watch is by no means a direct re-creation, or even a re-interpretation — it’s more a modern watch with an array of historical influences — this may be for the better. While plenty of vintage-watch aficionados — not excluding myself — would love to see those circular hour markers on that simple and straightforward tool watch, Breitling’s choice to pay homage but not copy may well pay off in this interesting contemporary piece. Hopefully, it will at the very least raise the mystique and rarity surrounding its vintage forefather, and then we could well see the arrival of a true vintage homage piece — perhaps for its 70th or 75th anniversary.

Rare display of Swiss Breitling plane in Jeddah

swiss-breitling-plane
Swiss Breitling plane was a major attraction for Jeddah residents.

Jeddah residents witnessed a unique display of the famous Swiss Breitling plane, parked next to the luxurious car Bentley Continental GT, in front a renowned mall on Tahlia Street.

The display became a major attraction for the residents of Jeddah. The event took place for the first time in the city, as a result of collaboration between Bentley cars and Swiss luxury replica watchmaker Breitling, as well as the part of a growing relationship between Abu Issa Company, dealer of Breitling replica watches, and Alghassan Motors, dealer of Bentley cars in the Kingdom.

Commenting on the rare display, Nabil Abu Issa, chairman of Abu Issa Holding, said: “It was a great experience.

In addition to our collaboration with Alghassan Motors, we had the opportunity to showcase Breitling legendary plane next to a Bentley car in Jeddah. It is a worthwhile opportunity for the public who were acquainted of the importance and the stylish replica Breitling watches.

“This was our first time ever to be constituted of such an important event in this thrilling way. Breitling once again displays its determination to share its passion of luxury with another luxury brand.”

Yousuf Ghassan Al-Sulaiman, vice president of Alghassan Motors, expressed his pleasure for participating in the event, which emphasizes the strong relationship between Alghassan Motors and Breitling replica watches.

Al-Sulaiman said: “Clients of Breitling replica watches admire the strategic relationship with Bentley, and we do anticipate to have many joint projects to enhance and strengthen the relationship between both parties for the best interest of our clients in Saudi Arabia.

“No doubt that the luxury and high precision of this high-end brand will be reflected on the luxurious Bentley cars, as both brands enjoy unique design approach and outstanding heritage.”
