As a Swiss watch manufacturer, Breitling enjoys a high reputation for high performance and powerful appearance across the world, and it’s one of the most popular wristwatch brands in the market. With the development of economy and people’s needs, replica products has been gradually entering people’s lives as luxury. High imitation Breitling watches share the market successfully.
Many of us bought fake handbags, jewelry or wristwatches, because we just like the classic look and low prices. Sadly, we bought some replicas, just since we are lack of the capability of distinguishing a real item and a replica one. Here I share my opinions with you about a comparison of a real watch and a replica one. People who have done some research on watches all know that a movement is the core part of a watch, so the movement is the biggest difference between a real watch and a replica one. AAA replica wristwatches are equipped with the same type of the movement as the original ones, but some detailed information still emerges because of the differences between polishing degrees of two movements, so the price depends on the movement. Take Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute watch as an example, and I’ll compare the original edition and a replica one according to the appearance, the functions and the movements.
COMPARISION OF APPEARANCES
We can’t distinguish the differences between the original edition and the replica one at the first glance, but then some detailed information emerges. It’s the most obvious that 60-second sub-dial and 30-minute sub-dial were set wrongly. Then, the original version bears white ” BREITLING COSMONAUTE 1962″ below the logo, while white “BREITLING CHRONOMETRE AUTOMATIC” is printed on the black dial of the replica watch. Third, there is a series name “NAVITIMER” above the 12-hour sub-dial, but the replica doesn’t have the sign. Next, the real version has a delicate and slim triangle at 12 O’clock, but the replica has a rough and flat triangle. Last, the real Navitimer Cosmonaute watch boasts white Arabic numeral hour markers, but the beige Arabic numeral hour markers appear on the dial of the replica watch.
COMPARISION OF FUNCTIONS
Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute watch is a sophisticated chronometre watch, the preferred choice for pilots. The calendar aperture at half past four. Three sub-dials bring out the chronograph function. Patented by Breitling in 1941, the Circular slide rule is used primarily for multiplication and division, and also for functions such as exponents, roots, logarithms, trigonometry and Metric conversion, but typically not for addition or subtraction. As a profession pilot’s wristwatch, its solid look and extreme functions make all pilots satisfied. Equipped with Swiss Valjoux 7750, the replica Navitimer Coamonaute watch achieves all functions above successfully. In my opinion, the replica watch last a shorter service life than the real edition because the universal Valjoux 7750 is polished less delicately.
COMPARISION OF MOVEMENTS
Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute, 43 mm, manufacture mechanical movement with automatic winding, Cal. 22 by COSC. Breitling Cal. 22 with 30 jewels which is based on ETA 2892-A2 provides 42-hour power reserve. Replica Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute, 43 mm, universal mechanical movement with automatic winding, Swiss Valjoux 7750. ETA 7750 suits to complicated watches, it has a high reputation for reliability, accuracy and practicality in the watchmaking industry. How much performance it can extend to? That depends on the polishing degrees.
