We have already shown you the Breitling replica Skyland Avenger numerous times, including the 39 mm case and the 45 mm size. But recently, we took it a step further and wore the Breitling replica watches Swiss for a weekend in UK, around town, at the pool, at the club, giving it a more thorough test.
First off, having a 7.5” wrist or smaller, the 39 mm seemed liked the ideal size. And upon arriving and strapping it on, we confirmed this. When we asked Breitling Watch Co. if the 39 mm is marketed towards men or women, they said it does in fact target the former, but can also be worn by the latter, as seen by so many women nowadays, who wear bigger watches. If you have extra-large wrists, or prefer the oversized look, then go with the 45 mm version.
Second, while the watch is not powered by a Jaeger-LeCoultre, Piaget or IWC movement – like many of the Replica Breitling Transocean watches UK models have been equipped with since the beginning of the joint venture between Breitling and the Richemont group (who owns all of the aforementioned brands) – it is instead equipped with a Sellita SW-300 Chronometer grade movement that beats at 4Hz, has a 42-hour power reserve and is finished with vertical Côtes de Genève and perlage (circular graining). The advantage is that it can be offered at a much more affordable price point because it is not an exclusive in-house manufactured Richemont caliber. But don’t let that deter you, because as I mentioned, it is a chronometer level movement, so it is highly reliable and accurate. Something I can attest to over the course of my time wearing. The precision was right on.
Third, the (38.70 mm by 10.40 mm) case which is made in what Breitling calls “black aged stainless steel” is more of a dark greyish gunmetal color. The hue is excellent, giving the watch an appearance that is dstinctive from your typical murdered-out timepiece. Furthermore, the PVD finish is very robust, which I tested first hand by accidentally banging it into a wall. It took the white paint right off the wall, I wiped it off, and there was not even a scratch on the case. There is something to be said about a watch that you can beat up without worrying too much about damaging it.
Fourth, is the dial is azure anthracite, finished with a matte varnish. The large concentric circle pattern is stamped onto the dial with a CNC machine, resulting in what is called an “azurage” finish. The pattern, which is typically used on smaller subdials, looks great as the entire backdrop for the dial. On top of that are big, easy to read beige luminescent Arabic numbers that have been printed. The minute track is printed in the same color material around the outer ring. The sword-shaped hour and minute hands with a shiny black oxidized finish and are filled with a luminescent material the matches the Arabic hour numerals. A shiny orange varnish painted, baton-shaped center seconds gives the Replica Breitling Skyland Avenger watches a nice colorful contrast. Printed in the middle is “Breitling Chronometer.” And there is no date display. Overall, the minimalist look is great and offers very easy time reading at a glance, which is great while you are rushing around and having fun in UK.
Lastly, the dial is protected by a slightly convex sapphire crystal with an internal colorless anti-reflective treatment. The bezel and lug screws non-functional however, the solid caseback is secured by six functional screws. The steel crown is signed with “Breitling replica watches movement” and screws down.
