Halloween’s long gone, and Thanksgiving is a speed bump in the express lane to inevitability; holiday season is here. But if luxury watches are on your radar, they should be on your holiday wish list, too. And we offers a leading collection of Breitling sports replica watches options to upstage anything from the North Pole.
While Grenchen, Switzerland’s Breitling SA is best known for its links to aviation, the family-owned firm offers options to suit fans of air, land, and sea-based pursuits. Nevertheless, aviators and armchair aviators earn pole position in any overview of contemporary Breitling.
And among Breitling’s flight-inspired models, the Chronomat 44 Frecce Tricolore is a standout. This limited edition of 1,000 pieces combines rich historic overtones with late-model refinement. Launched in 2013 as a tribute to the Italian “Pattuglia Acrobatica Nazionale Frecce Tricolori” – essentially, Italy’s equivalent of the RAF Red Arrows or U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds – the Chronomat of the same name ties Breitling’s latest movement technology to its aviation roots.
Although the Breitling Navitimer series fake watches are Breitling’s icon, the Chronomat has been the franchise since its 1983 re-launch. From the 1980s through the 1990s, the sales-king Chronomat led Breitling out of the Quartz Crisis and into a brand renaissance. The Breitling Chronomat 44 Frecce Tricolore pays homage to the model’s legacy and long-running relationship with Italy’s signature squadron.
As a consultant to the development of the 1983 corporate-comeback model, the Frecce Tricolore flight unit receives pride of place on the dial of this tribute model. Rich red subdial hands ensure sharp contrast, and artful use of texture animates the sub-register faces. Sparing application of ecru-colored LumiNovia provides a subtle nod to the vintage 1940s Chronomat models that debuted this celebrated nameplate.
Inside the Frecce Tricolore’s 44mm stainless steel case Breitling replica watches, Breitling’s B01 manufacture automatic caliber keeps the beat. The crisp feel of the column-wheel pusher and 70-hour power reserve represent substantive upgrades from the pioneering 1980s original, but these measures merely headline a long list of mechanical refinements. As with all modern Breitling models, the Chronomat 44 Frecce Tricolor is a COSC certified Swiss Chronometer. The 500-meter water resistance, screw-down crown and pushers, and a unidirectional dive bezel ensure that this military “pilot’s tribute” is equally adept at amphibious operations.
