To kick off this week, our own Cole Pennington delivered a killer Week on the Wrist with the best quality replica Breitling AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-edition. The video and article delve into not just the watch, but its place in history – taking us on a ride back in time to the heyday of air travel.
It seems like a perfect opportunity to dig a bit deeper into the ‘dink archives and unearth another Week on the Wrist, with another Breitling AVI Chronograph copy for men, but this time vintage – the real deal.
That’s right, some years back Louis Westphalen wrote about his own steel case copy Breitling AVI Ref. 765. This isn’t the exact model upon which Cole’s piece was based. There are obvious aesthetic differences like the markers, the subdials, and the hands, but it’s close – the essence is there. On a lazy Sunday, there’s no more fitting an activity than falling into a watch reference rabbit hole. Enjoy.
