Breitling Replica unveiled its Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Norton Edition watch. We were lucky enough to have some hands-on time with the watch seriously hoping this might lead to a seats-on session with the bike!
The 42mm case size is a perfect size for this style of watch. It is a sports swiss fake watch after all but steers clear of the XXL territory that Breitling was renowned for. The steel case with its screwed-in caseback offers a more than respectable water-resistance of 100m.
However, the real personality of the Breitling Replica Watchescan be appreciated on the dial, which pays homage to the Norton partnership with its smart black, silver and golden colour scheme. Basically a reversed panda-style dial with a black background and two silver snailed counters, the design is legible with just the right dose of vintage.
Breitling Replica has equipped its Premier B01 Chronographs with its manufacture Calibre 01, the same movement it shares with Tudor. Operating at 28,800vph, this ¼ second column-wheel chronograph with vertical clutch offers a very satisfying power reserve of 70 hours and is COSC-certified.
This is my favourite model from the line-up of Premier B01 Chronographs Best Replica Watches. It is a breeze to read and has heaps of character and style. The design details are thoughtful and well executed and the colour scheme so evocative. The watch we had at MONOCHROME came with the slightly distressed brown leather strap with white stitching.
