Fake Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute
For all the talk of moon landings and the Omega Speedmaster, perfect replica Breitling was actually the first Swiss wrist-worn chronograph in space. In 1962, Scott Carpenter blasted off in the Mercury-Atlas 7 spacecraft wearing none other than a luxury fake Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute. Carpenter’s request to Breitling was simple: add a 24-hour dial to distinguish day from night in the darkness of space. Mercury-Atlas 7 orbited the earth three times before it splashed in the Atlantic. To commemorate the 60th anniversary of such a historic feat, Swiss made fake Breitling dropped this 41mm Cosmonaute re-issue last year, limited to 362 pieces. The busy dial is made super legible with the unusual big numerals, along with the old Breitling winged logo captured in a creamy-coloured vintage-look lume. £9,300.
Replica Breitling Chronomat
For many 1:1 fake Breitling is best known for its muscular Chronomat series in that less-than-shy 44mm size and the perfection of its Rouleaux bracelet design. Case in point, this deep blue complex dial. “With the current Chronomat collection, aaa quality replica Breitling updated one of the coolest watches from the ’80s. The one to have is this Super Chronomat with a four-year calendar, only requiring one calendar adjustment per 1461 days,” says RJ Broer of Fratello Watches. “And as you know, a proper cheap copy Breitling Chronomat should be in two-tone [18kt red gold and steel here], but you can also settle for an all-steel model if you’re not feeling the Miami Vice vibe.” £15,150.
Copy Breitling Top Time B01 Triumph
The Swiss movement replica Breitling Top Time was Breitling’s colourful late ‘60s sports watch and has, within the last decade, been the subject of some very cool brand collabs. We’re rather smitten by the two-tone ice blue dial of this joining of forces with Triumph motorcycles.
On a vented black rally leather strap, the chill vibes of the top super clone Breitling Top Time panda-dial make it one of the most retro 42mm chronographs out there. The colour is matched to a 1965 Triumph Thunderbird 6T, and the two squircular registers within the clean-cut case make it a strong wrist presence we’ve decided is impossible to ignore. £6,250.
