The first Replica Breitling Chronomat made its debut in 1948, and instantly made history as the first wristwatch to incorporate the aviator’s slide-rule bezel that is now the hallmark of another Breitling model, the Navitimer.
The watches all feature 42-mm cases, in either stainless steel or 18k rose gold, and a tricompax dial arrangement with subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock — a configuration that, as per current Cheap Breitling Replica styling, speaks to their use of an in-house chronograph-equipped movement, Breitling’s automatic B01.
The Chronomat B01 42 is available in a range of colorful variations. One model in stainless steel offers a silver, copper, or blue dial with contrasting black subdials. Another special edition, produced as part of Breitling’s longstanding collaboration with Fake Breitling Bentley, has a dial in British racing green with black subdials and a sapphire exhibition caseback engraved with a Bentley logo.A Frecce Tricolori logo replaces the Breitling logo on the dial, and the inscription “ONE OF 250” adorns the caseback.
On the more luxurious end, the Best Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Replica is available in a steel case with rose-gold crown, pushers, and rider tabs and a silver dial with silver tone-on-tone subdials. On another model, the entire bezel is made of rose gold, along with the pushers and crown and components of the steel-and-gold Rouleaux bracelet.
This version offers dials in either blue with tone-on-tone subdials or anthracite with black subdials. At the highest echelon of sporty luxury is the one model mounted on a black leather strap rather than a bracelet, in a case of full 18k rose gold and anthracite-and-black dial.
