Breitling Navitimer GMT 48mm Luxury Watch Review

The newest Breitling Navitimer models are new GMT versions that sport quite beefy 48mm wide cases and also new 46mm wide Navitimer models – aBlogtoWatch debuted the 2014 Navitimer GMT watches here. Breitling makes watches for guys who like big watches. That might just be a good slogan for the brand moving forward. In fact, among the mainstream luxury brands, Breliting is among the few that routinely make watches that I actually find too large for my wrists – and I am a guy who likes large watches. It means bigger guys who like to show-off have ample choice within the Breitling product catalog. So with that said, let’s take a look at the new Breitling Navitimer GMT 48mm Replica Watches and see if your wrist can brave it.

To be fair, the Breitling Navitimer GMT isn’t that much larger than other Navitimer models. The Cheap Breitling Replica 01 is 46mm wide. Both of these watches contain in-house made Breitling mechanical chronograph movements. While the three-hand version contains the caliber 01 movements, the new Breitling Navitimer GMT contains Breitling caliber 04 – which simply adds a GMT hand for a 24 hour time or a second time zone to the other features such as 12 hour chronograph. The movement operates at 4Hz and has a power reserve of about 70 hours.

I actually don’t know why Breitling decided to increase the GMT’s size 2mm more than the standard chronograph movement-based Navitimer 01. Actually, I have some pretty good ideas why though. Watch brands sometimes do this in order to create additional differentiating factors between their watches so that, for the consumer, the choice isn’t just “GMT hand or not.” I don’t think there was an outcry from Breitling Replica Watches consumers that 48mm wide Navitimer options were needed. It does help offer additional flavor though, if you are the type of person keen on the Navitimer family – one of Breitling’s oldest collections that started in the 1950s. Furthermore, this isn’t the only available Breitling Navitimer with a GMT hand.

The wide dial periphery and slide-rule give each Navitimer its distinctive looks – a design that you can’t separate from Breitling. It is a true design classic, and if you are looking to amass a serious “well-rounded” watch collection you might want to consider adding one of the many Navitimer models Breitling Replica has produced over the years to it. There have been more than enough versions made to make most anyone happy.The Breitiling Navitimer GMT is not the only timepiece recently released by the brand with a rather large size. Having said that, Breitling has also been releasing smaller models for men as small as 38mm wide, I believe. That means you have a lot of interesting options from 38mm – 48mm wide when looking at the brand. While it is easy to say that it takes an expert to distinguish many Best Fake Breitling from one another, the brand can be complimented for offering a serious plethora of choices for those looking to find the perfect piece when desiring to own something from the brand.

Breitling Navitimer Replica A23322 Luxury Watch Review

When Breitling introduced the Navitimer In 1952, the first commercial jet planes were just coming into service. Experimental transonic and supersonic aircraft like the Douglas X-3 Stiletto and D-558-II Skyrocket were making aviation history. The Breitling Navitimer Replica Watches was designed to help pilots coordinate time and navigation. The watch was equipped with a built-in circular slide rule that let pilots calculate critical measurements such as fuel consumption, drift angle and ground speed with- out carrying a slide rule into the cockpit. The Cheap Breitling Replica Navitimer made it easier to perform calculations in-flight and ensured that a slide rule was always close at hand. The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association chose the Navitimer as its official watch. In the 1950s and ’60s, many Navitimers had the AOPA logo.

But there was one disadvantage: the numbers on the Navitimer’s scales were too small to be read easily. The original Navitimer’s 40-mm case was large by 1950s standards, but the numbers on its scales were still tiny. The Cheap Breitling Navitimer 01, which debuted in 2011, had a larger, 43-mm case.And the newest version of the Navitimer 01, our test watch, is even larger, at 46 mm. It was introduced in 2014.The larger dial naturally offers better legibility: the slide rule has bigger numerals that are easier to read. And it’s easier to operate the slide rule on the larger watch. But the scales and contrasting subdials show so much data, the wearer may have trouble deciphering it all, even on the larger dial. Legibility would be better if Breitling Replica Watches eliminated the dial’s tachymeter scale, which isn’t absolutely necessary on a pilots’ watch.We also found that there isn’t much contrast between the steel hour and minutes hands and the silver subdials beneath them, although luminous material on the hands offers some improvement. But there’s no luminous substance on the elapsed-time hands, so the counters for elapsed minutes and elapsed hours have even less contrast.

At night, the luminous material on the hour and minutes hands, together with small luminous dots at the ends of the indexes and a double luminous dot at the 12, provide some legibility, but there isn’t enough luminous substance on the dial for easy nighttime reading. The large best fake breitling Navitimer’s dial is available with indexes only, not numerals. A version of the smaller model is available with numerals; it has luminous material on the hour and minutes hands, but not on the dial.
