Pilot’s Watch Review: Breitling Chronomat GMT Replica Watches

For many watch lovers, a Cheap Replica Watches is the epitome of a pilots’ watch. So it made sense that we include one in this pilots’ watch review. For the story, we selected nine watches to accompany a trio of pilots – aerobatics champion Klaus Lenhart and his protégés Axel Schütte and Andreas Langer − while they performed an aerobatic program, specially designed for our review, in the skies above the Swabian Mountains in south Germany.


The Chronomat GMT has a chronograph with tachymeter scale, a date display, and — always a useful function for pilots — a second time zone with 24-hour display. This last-mentioned indicator, which relies on an additional central hour hand, is a feature of the new Replica Watches, based on Caliber 01, which was developed in-house. The newer caliber boasts exactly the same traits as its predecessor: a column-wheel chronograph with vertical coupling, a 70-hour power reserve, and a COSC chronometer certificate. The Breitling Replica performed impeccably: after it had been fully wound, it ran with an average daily gain of just 1.1 seconds, and it maintained this excellent precision when we tested it right after landing and again 24 hours later. The watch ran slightly faster when the chronograph was switched on. This is as good as it gets.


When Langer strapped the Breitling Replica Watches to his wrist, he found the bracelet to be much too long, although it could be fairly easily shortened via the screwed lugs. The size and weight didn’t bother our pilot at first, but afterwards he remarked that this big timepiece tended to get snagged.


Langer shared Lenhart’s opinion about the rotating bezel: both pilots agreed that this is a useful accessory. Langer demonstrated its usefulness by turning it into position for a specific interval, although he found the tachymeter scale along the Cheap Breitling Replica edge of the dial too small for his taste. Furthermore, he said, “there’s always something sparkling, glittering or glaring in the sunlight,” making it more difficult to read the time. Nonetheless, the time display is more prominent than the chronograph function and is always the first thing you see, especially when the dial is viewed in the dark. A dot on the bezel glows quite clearly and helps you see at a glance where 12 o’clock is. You have to unscrew the buttons before starting the chronograph. The large, easy-to-grasp crown is also screwed down. When it is unscrewed and pulled out to its middle position, it can be used to adjust the hour hand either forward or backward, including switching the date display. This is very useful when traveling through different time zones. The Cheap Breitling 24-hour hand makes it easy to keep track of the hour in your home time zone.

Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel Replica: Ready for Takeoff

At Replica Watches, black is still the new black. After recently adding new Blacksteel models to its Colt, Navitimer, and Avenger Seawolf collections, the aviation-inspired Swiss brand now extends its newest brand family, the Chronoliner, with a version in a Blacksteel case.
The steel case of the Breitling Replica is coated with a highly resistant carbon-based treatment and sports satin-brushed surfaces that contrast with the polished, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel. The watch is the latest addition to Breitling’s Chronoliner collection of “authentic flight captain’s watches,” inspired by designs from the 1950s and ’60s and introduced at Baselworld 2015. It combines two pilot-friendly functions, a 1/4-second chronograph for measuring flight times and a triple timezone display to keep track of the times in various time zones whilst in flight.

The second time zone is indicated by a red-tipped hand on a 24-hour scale around the black dial, while a third time zone, also in 24-hour mode, can be read on the notched, bidirectional rotating bezel. The Breitling Replica Watches chronograph counters are at 12 and 6 o’clock, small seconds are at 9 o’clock, and the date is at 3 o’clock. The case measures 46 mm in diameter, resists water pressure down to 100 meters, and features on its back side an engraved image of stylized airplanes. Nighttime legibility is enhanced by luminous coating on the large hands and hour markers.
