Advanced UK Replica Breitling Chronospace EVO B60 Watches – New 100% Breitling “Engine”

The new Breitling Chronospace Evo B60 fake watch online welcomes aboard its sturdy and light titanium case the first analog-display quartz movement entirely developed by and for Breitling: a SuperQuartzTM chronograph caliber with 24-hour counter, central minutes and split times. An example of what can happen when independence meets performance…

Within the Professional range, synonymous with high-tech by Breitling, the Chronospace Evo already stood out as the only electronic model exclusively equipped with pointer-type displays. It now distinguishes itself even more strongly by becoming the first Breitling model to house an analog-display quartz movement entirely developed and produced by the brand. An ‘engine’ developed and produced in Switzerland, which is joining the Caliber B50 with analog and digital displays, equipped with aviation-dedicated functions; and Caliber B55, the avant- garde connected chronograph – not to mention the broad range of mechanical Manufacture Breitling movements.

In creating the Caliber B60 electronic movement, top-quality copy Breitling has incorporated all the imperative requirements expected of an instrument for professionals. In addition to its precision ten times greater than a standard quartz movement, this thermocompensated SuperQuartzTM caliber, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) is distinguished by the peerless functionality and legibility of its chronograph. Tenths of a second are displayed in a counter between 2 and 3 o’clock. The two central chronograph hands – a red-tipped one for the seconds and a white-tipped one for the minutes – serve to read off measured times with complete clarity, whatever the visibility conditions. They are complemented by a 24-hour counter between 9 and 10 o’clock, dedicated to missions lasting an entire day.


Another key asset in terms of efficiency is the fact that by pressing the pushpiece at 4 o’clock, the user can stop the chronograph hands at will to measure split times. A further press on this same pusher then enables the hands to “catch up with” the correct position and to continue the timing operation in progress. Exactly what is needed to keep track of feats achieved by several competitors taking part in a race, or to measure several successive times during a mission.

On the new Chronospace Evo B60, the legibility of the displays is further enhanced by large white luminescent hands and hour-markers standing out against the dark dial background. The unidirectional rotating bezel ensures an excellent grip thanks to its four rider tabs serving to mark off times. The titanium case, water-resistant to 100 m (330 ft), is fitted with protective reinforcements for its screw-locked crown.

The new reliable replica Breitling Chronospace Evo B60 is available in two dial versions – one black with slate gray counters and the other blue with black counters – equipped with a bracelet in titanium or strap in leather or rubber. A strong and original face beneath which to house the new 100% Breitling ‘engine’.

Superior UK Breitling DC-3 World Tour Navitimer Special Edition Fake Watches For Breitling’s DC-3 Aircraft

The Douglas DC-3 is one of those aircraft that has a firmly established larger-than-life persona. Like the Supermarine Spitfire or the B-17 Flying Fortress, it has a reputation for coming through, again and again, where other planes might not. The DC-3 was originally designed for commercial aviation and when it was first introduced in 1936, it was revolutionary: a relatively long-range aircraft capable of eight hours’ flight time (without reserve tanks) that made the first true transcontinental service possible. For the first time, flying across the USA became a practical reality; it took only fifteen hours, with refueling stops and the DC-3 could even fly to Europe, stopping in Greenland and Iceland for gas. Today, Breitling is operating a DC-3 that left the Douglas Aircraft factory in 1940, and it’s not just going cross-country, it’s going around the world – with five hundred Navitimers hidden somewhere on board. At the completion of the journey this fall, it will become the oldest aircraft to ever have flown around the world.

The DC-3 (“DC” stands for Douglas Commercial) was originally developed as a long haul “sleeper” aircraft, with 14 beds, as the Douglas DST, and the 21-seat version was designated DC-3. The basic design was so robust and reliable that it lent itself to many variations as well. In the USA, 607 were made but if you include the military version – the C-47 Skytrain – and versions produced in Russia and Japan under license, over 16,000 were produced in total.

The DC-3 and its variants attracted a truly remarkable variety of nicknames over the years; pilots and crews called it Dumbo, Old Fatso, Charlie 47, and more (a lot more) but the most popular nickname was “Gooney Bird.” This may not sound like a compliment but it is, albeit a backhanded one. “Gooney Bird,” is a nickname for the albatross, which in airman’s lore is a bird so goofy looking, it looks like it shouldn’t be able to fly. Fly it does though – beautifully – because supposedly, it’s too dumb to know that it can’t. Likewise, the DC-3 was, like the B-17 Flying Fortress, able to tolerate an incredible amount of abuse and keep flying, presumably because like the albatross, it was too dumb to know it shouldn’t. There are numerous anecdotes illustrating this aspect of the aircraft, including one that tells of a C-47 which had a mid-air collision with a Japanese fighter aircraft during the war which removed a large chunk of the tail of the C-47. The fighter crashed but the C-47 managed to get back to base with most of its rudder gone, and was officially credited with an air-to-air kill.

After the war, the market was flooded with war-surplus C-47s and DC-3s, and they were rapidly taken into civilian service. Capable of operating off short runways, easy to service, reliable and economical to operate, they proved incredibly durable and enduring, and there are to this day, DC-3s still operating as commercial aircraft despite their advancing age (though numbers are dwindling, with about 150 in the world still airworthy). They can operate on unpaved runways and their toughness is enshrined in such sayings as “the only replacement for a DC-3 is another DC-3,” and the affectionate description of the plane as “a collection of parts flying in loose formation.”

She flew after the war for a variety of regional airlines, being kept in good repair along the way; operators included PBA (Provincetown Boston Airlines) and then Eastern Express. In 1992, she was acquired by a private collector for restoration and today, she has been certified in Switzerland for commercial passenger flight, with upgrades to her instruments including modern radios and GPS navigation systems which allow her to be flown under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules).

Looking over Captain Francisco Agullo’s shoulder, in flight aboard the Breitling DC-3.

However, her airframe and other components are all original, including her two Pratt & Whitney R1830-92 engines. The Pratt & Whitney “Twin Wasp” R1830 radial engine is a tale in itself; it was used for, among others, the B-24 Liberator, and it may be the most produced aircraft piston engine in aviation history.

Around The World

Unlike most modern passenger airliners, the DC-3 is tail down when parked (such an aircraft is sometimes called a “taildragger” by pilots) and during the takeoff roll the tail comes up and the nose goes down before the aircraft becomes airborne.

The ’round the world tour of this DC-3 began last March as, obviously, a public relations exercise but the flight has not been without some risks, some of which recall the adventurous image that commercial aviation very much had in the late 1930s when the first DC-3s rolled off the assembly line. Even something as simple as fuel turns out to be problematic. The DC-3 is a piston-engined aircraft and therefore can’t use jet fuel, which nowadays is the most easily found type of aviation fuel; instead it uses Avgas. Jet fuel is kerosene based, while Avgas is a gasoline, and the two are not interchangeable.

Avgas is relatively easy to procure in Europe or the USA but it’s much more difficult to find in the developing world, and on one occasion this nearly left the Breitling DC-3 stranded. At one airport in Asia the crew phoned ahead to the next airport to confirm their fuel, which had been shipped ahead of them, was waiting for them and the airport replied that it was not; it had been sold weeks before to someone willing to pay a high price for it. The decision was made by the pilot and crew to load the plane with enough fuel to reach the next airport after the one where their fuel had been stolen, but this meant making sure they had enough of a tailwind to push them there without exhausting their fuel reserves..

This was not the only part of the trip where fuel reserves were an issue. The range of the DC-3 on a single load of fuel is not sufficient for crossing large stretches of ocean; this was a major challenge on the longest leg of the trip, which was a flight from Obihirio, Japan, to Shemya Island. Shemya is part of the Aleutians and is home to Eareckson Air Station which has had a US military presence on it more or less since 1943, and while it is currently the home of a radar designed to provide SALT II arms treaty verification, it’s also a diversion airfield for aircraft in distress in over the Pacific. What it’s not, is a regular use civil aviation runway, but it was the nearest airfield possible for the Breitling DC-3 to reach from Japan and approval had to be obtained from the Pentagon for a scheduled flight. The only problem is, it’s a ten hour flight, which meant enough fuel had to be crammed into the aircraft to get it to Shemya with a reasonable reserve.

The cabin of the Breitling DC-3 has had some of the seating removed to accomodate a backup fuel supply if necessary.

If you look carefully at the above photo of the interior of the DC-3 you will notice that there is a rather large space amidships where there are no seats. During long-haul legs of the ’round the world trip this space is occupied by giant fuel bladders, turning the plane into a flying gas can (in the photo below, the front seats have been removed as well).

The flight from Obihirio to Eareckson Air Station didn’t quite push the DC-3 and her crew to the edge of survival, but it wasn’t a walk in the park either. The flight was ten hours, and because air temperature at altitude over the North Pacific even during late spring is cold enough to cause icing problems, the DC-3 had to stay low; the maximum altitude possible for that leg of the circumnavigation was only around 1000 feet, with much of the last part of the flight at only 500 feet. Moreover, by the time the aircraft reached Eareckson, there was a major storm front moving in so the crew had no time to rest – in four hours, the DC-3 was refueled and airborne again, headed for Cold Bay Island, further west along the Aleutians. This was another eight hour leg, and by the time the crew landed in Cold Bay, they had gone without sleep for over 30 hours.

It’s pretty incredible performance for a 77 year old aircraft; obviously, however, Douglas built their DC-3s to last. They were an engineering marvel in their day, with over half a mile of control cables (the control surfaces are mechanically linked to the stick and rudder pedals) and an astonishing 500,000 rivets per airplane. DC-3s and C-47s have in the line of duty shown a remarkable ability to get airborne even when grossly overloaded; in one case, a C-47 tasked with bringing home Lt. Colonel Jimmy Dolittle after the famous Dolittle air raid, managed to get into the air with Dolittle and 74 passengers on board (and bear in mind, the first DC-3s were designed for 21 passengers).

You can’t help but think about the fact that all those rivets were put in place in 1940 (I imagine the pilots must think about it from time to time; or maybe they’re really good at not thinking about it at all).

One other interesting detail: we mentioned that the Breitling DC-3 is carrying 500 Navitimers somewhere on board. These Swiss movements Breitling Navitimer replica watches are a limited edition, which will feature an engraving of the aircraft as well as a commemorative message.

The Breitling DC-3 World Tour Navitimer Special Edition is a Navitimer 01 with commemorative engraving.

They’ll be available through Breitling boutiques and retailers, but as they’re flying around the world with the DC-3 they will not be available until the end of the global circumnavigation, which will conclude this September at the Breitling Sion Airshow. Getting the reliable Breitling fake watches online around the world unscathed was apparently a bit of a trick. The problem in taking them along for the ride was that 500 Navitimer 01 watches is a total of $3.98 million (full retail) worth of watches and this makes for a fairly tempting target for theft.

As a way of discouraging attempts along the way (especially in parts of the world where airport security may be along the sketchy-to-nonexistent spectrum) the watches are hidden somewhere on board the aircraft in a location difficult enough to get to that, in the words of pilot Francisco Agullo, “even if you knew where they were it would still take over two hours to get at them.” The fact that the watches are never actually taken off the aircraft at any point, not only ensures they don’t suddenly become compact financial instruments as well as watches; it also obviates any necessity to involve every traveling watch lover’s favorite bureaucrat, the customs officer.

The DC-3 is one of those airplanes that as a young aviation buff, I admit I somewhat overlooked; high performance fighters were my thing and anything from a World War I era Spad VII to the great monoplane fighters of World War II, to early jet age warriors of the sky like the F-86 Sabrejet and the Mig-15, all the way up to the monster that is the SR-71/A-12, were easy to fall in love with. The DC-3, however, is no second fiddle. Simple, versatile, easy to repair, and above all, dependable to a fault, the DC-3 has a lot of the virtues that mechanical watch lovers see in mechanical timepieces, including longevity, repairability, and the devotion to making machines that can take a licking and keep on ticking (to borrow a phrase) that certainly, modern aviation seems to struggle to embody.

A reader asked us during the last Friday Live episode, why “they don’t make ’em like they used to.” Better technology overtakes any machine, sooner or later. But every once in a while, a machine comes along that’s such an optimum solution that while it may be easy to imagine a more modern one, it’s hard to imagine a truly better one. The DC-3, and a good mechanical watch, have a lot in common in this respect and both, if taken care of properly and treated respectfully, are capable of serving their intended purposes for what by all appearances is a very, very long time.

Breitling will be donating 2CHF per nautical mile flown to UNICEF programs. Follow the Breitling DC-3 and its 500 Navitimer “passengers” as they head back across the Atlantic, right here. The hot-selling fake Breitling Navitimer 01 Limited Editions will be available at the conclusion of the World Tour this fall; price will be $8,750 on a strap.

Reviews On Comparison Between Replica Breitling Superocean Heritage I And II UK Watches

A funny thing happened while I was in the midst of the drawn out process of reviewing Breitling’s “original” (modern) Superocean Heritage watch – Breitling decided to release a brand new model with the Breitling Superocean Heritage II that debuted at Baselworld 2017. The Breitling Superocean Heritage II is actually a few different models comprised of various styles of the 42mm-wide three-hand model, the 46mm-wide three-hand model, and the 46mm-wide chronograph. This article is meant to compare and contrast the first generation Breitling Superocean Heritage I with the replacement “next generation” Superocean Heritage II. An interesting change about the watch – which I will discuss more below – is that for the three-hand models Breitling is now using Tudor movements – imagine that.

The new Superocean Heritage
The outgoing Breitling Superocean Heritage

Changes to the Superocean Heritage II over the I are subtle but important. What Breitling really did is address the “aging” of the Superocean Heritage, which was about materials and parts over design. The Swiss movements copy Breitling Superocean Heritage was and continues to be a solid money-maker for Breitling, being one of its most popular and attractive models. The Superocean name is derived from a historic diving watch of the same name released about 70 years ago by Breitling, whose look was “revived” in the Superocean Heritage. As a “vintage-inspired” diving watch, the Superocean Heritage lived alongside more “modern” (in design) diving watches from Breitling such as the (non “Heritage”) Superocean. Since we have photos of both the Generation I and Generation II in this review, the fastest way to identify them is by looking at the hour and minute hand. If the hour hand is bisected and the minute hand sports a more dramatic tapering, it’s the Generation II.

While it is increasingly common for luxury watch brands to follow “The Rolex Way” of updating existing models over and over again as time goes on, the practice is more rare than you might be led to believe. Though, in recent years brands have seen value in sticking to “pillar” products and continually refining them over time in order to make them appealing to new customers as well as to encourage existing customers to upgrade. That is really only something you can do with a good core design. Breitling has more or less followed this strategy, but in a very different way, While they certainly have their share of pillar models, there are instances when new generation versions of existing names aren’t necessarily improved previous versions. Sometimes they are merely “different,” without a clear reason why.

Generation I
Generation II

The 2017 Superocean Heritage II is much more clear in its purpose – and that is not to re-imagine the look of the Superocean Heritage collection, but rather to make it more modern. Some of the design decisions might be controversial, but for the most part, the Superocean Heritage II is everything we loved about the Superocean Heritage I, with some more modern materials and in the case of the three-hand version, a new movement.

A very important question to ask yourself is whether or not you should get a good deal on a previous generation Superocean Heritage I or pony up for the brand new fake Breitling Superocean Heritage II. Is one a solid upgrade over the other, or are both models appealing in their own way? In fact, a very good argument could be made that while the Superocean Heritage II has some clear improvements over the first generation model, depending on your taste (and ability to find a deal), the previous generation Superocean Heritage watch might be just as good if not better for your needs.

Breitling makes a very solid-feeling watch, which in my opinion starts with the case. The brand is particularly good at serving up well-polished heavy blocks of steel. While a lot of modern dive watches offer complicated cases with contrast finishing and other interesting design elements, the Superocean Heritage is all about appearing like a retro tank. The 42mm-wide or 46mm-wide steel case is entirely polished (with a great finishing) and water resistant to 200m. With that said, it feels like it could take a lot more of a beating. The vintage-inspired design eschews a lot of modern things you might expect to see in a diving watch (such as crown guards). So, the elegance and attractive design of the Superocean Heritage made up for its lack of being a totally “pro” diving instrument.

The Superocean Heritage II replica watch with best performance online  is a bit more “pro worthy” but you can see that the design decisions come at the expense of aesthetics. So let’s first talk about how the unidirectional rotating bezel of the Superocean Heritage II differs from that of the original model. This is one of two major visible ways the Superocean Heritage I and II models all differ from one another. In doing the video part of the review for the Superocean Heritage 46, I mentioned that the most “age showing” part of the watch in terms of its product lifespan was the anodized aluminum / or coated steel (I’m not sure the specific metal used) bezel insert. Ceramic bezels are far more preferred and valued these days simply because they have colors which will last forever, and because they are extremely scratch resistant. With the Superocean Heritage II Breitling correctly upgraded the bezel from a metal version to a ceramic one – and it comes in black, brown, and blue.

The ceramic bezel doesn’t look exactly the same, and the metal one, with its very simple markers was a bit more elegant looking. The Superocean Heritage II’s ceramic bezel is very similar, but has a bit more of a matte finish (to be expected) and now a Super-LumiNova luminant-filled pip at 12 o’clock on the rotating bezel. This ups the functional cred of the Superocean Heritage II, but it does take a bit away from the quasi-minimalist yet masculine design that made the original Superocean Heritage so lovely and charming.

In pictures the lume pip on the bezel is barely noticeable, and in person it is a bit more obvious. I wouldn’t say that this feature is not welcome as it does add functionality, but the lume does take away a bit from the original appeal of the design – which never apologized for making some aesthetic decisions in lieu of functional considerations. What I really would have liked for Breitling to do is introduce a bezel that looked exactly the same as the original, in ceramic, with each of the markers on the bezel painted in white luminant. Thus, the entire bezel could have been lumed, but without visually changing the character of the overall watch.

Under the sapphire crystal is a dial on the supeior fake Breitling Superocean Heritage II which is remarkably similar to that of the Superocean Heritage I. One change is that the date window is at 6 o’clock on both the 46mm-wide and 42mm-wide versions – previously the 42mm model had the date at the less desirable 3 o’clock hour marker that tended to screw with dial symmetry. The Superocean Heritage II changes the style of the text on the dial just a bit, though the text actually says the same thing. The sizing and other minor details are all that are changed.

The biggest dial change in the Superocean Heritage II over the I is the design of the hands. I really (really) liked the design of the Superocean Heritage I hands with the straight sword-like minute hand and the simple arrow-style hour hand. Breitling decided to mess with a good thing and produce new hands for the Superocean Heritage II, which are a bit more inspired by the hands on original Superocean dive watches from 1957. That means you still get a sword-style minute hand and an arrow-style hour hand – but now they are of a different design – and I’m on the fence about how I feel with them.

How To Give Breitling Wings To UK Reliable Breitling Fake Watches By Georges Kern?

What Georges Kern might do to fix the storied maker of pilot’s watches.
The recent departure of Richemont watch boss Georges Kern was a surprise, as was the fact that he was leaving to run Breitling, recently acquired by CVC Capital Partners. Promoted to head of watchmaking, marketing and digital at the Swiss luxury group only in April 2017, Kern’s elevation was the result of his triumphant 14-year stint as CEO of IWC.

With Kern in charge IWC saw its revenue grow almost eight-fold to an estimated SFr800m, making it the biggest pure-play watchmaker in Richemont. Those very talents are surely why he was tapped to be Breitling’s saviour, and offered the upside of an equity stake, by the financiers at CVC, the European private equity outfit best known for having quadrupled its investment in Formula One after selling the sport earlier this year.

Kern’s formula for success at IWC is well known, a strategy that included recruiting celebrity ambassadors as well as making watches more visually accessible with warmer and more modern colours. Some, or perhaps most, of that will surely be applied to Breitling, which is essentially a maker of sporty aviator’s watches; pilot’s watches accounted for over a third of production at IWC. What might the turnaround plan include?

Building the pillars of the brand

One of Kern’s favoured product strategies, which he implemented at IWC but also at two other brands he oversaw, Baume & Mercier and Roger Dubuis, is to reinforce the strongest product lines as “pillars” of the brand. Consequently IWC has two bestselling pillars that practically define the brand, the Portugieser and Pilot’s, which together make up around three-quarters of sales. The two are backed up by the fast-growing Portofino line, plus the Aquatimer, Da Vinci and Ingenieur for the small number of consumers who want something else.

The brand pillars will only sell well if the product within are appealing. At IWC the product range evolved from being uncompromisingly masculine and technical to something glamorous and alluring. Pilot’s watches, for instance, went to being a no-nonense remake of the Mark 11 issued to 1950s RAF pilot’s to timepieces co-branded “Top Gun” or the whimsical St. Exupery.

Breitling’s catalogue currently lists 12 collections of Swiss copy watches, some of which blend into each other (Navitimer vs Montbrillant anyone?). Fortunately the Navitimer and Chronomat are ready-made brand pillars, being the most recognisable products that also have the strongest history, and accompanying tale to sell. Odds are the two lines will be the focus for the first couple of quarters, along with a third collection of historical-remake watches that are the flavour du jour across the industry.

Since the goal is to bring the excitement of aviation and fighter pilots to the ordinary consumer who does not want an overly extreme or expensive wristwatch, even watches within the new pillars will undergo some tweaks, ranging from the prosaic to the philosophical. Despite the dozen lines that make up Breitling’s line-up at the moment, the dominant colour is black. If Kern’s track record at IWC is anything to go by, blue, brown, grey, “warmer” colours as he puts them, will become more prominent.

As consumer tastes are now more practical, the comically large watches that are 46mm, 48mm, and 50mm will become fond memories or better still, highly sought-after limited editions. At IWC the oversized and bulky Ingenieur watches – after many years of reiterating the same idea – were mostly abandoned in favour of modestly sized, affordably priced models.

And to achieve affordable prices, there will probably be a return to low-cost, outsourced movements, which means less of the pricey in-house Breitling 01 movement (the same calibre Breitling sells to Tudor), or a developing a lower cost movement, which is what IWC did. Best-performance replica Breitling chronographs with an in-house movement account for about a quarter of output at Breitling, but cost almost double otherwise identical models powered by the Valjoux 7750. Already many of the latest Pilot’s watches at IWC cannily rely on Sellita or ETA movements, or “manufacture” movements built on the foundations of an ETA.

At the same time, Breitling’s pool of celebrity ambassadors will probably grow from its current pool of one, since its only other ambassador just decamped for Tudor. John Travolta has been a Breitling ambassador for over a decade and is now 63 years old, so it stands to reason that a more diverse group of ambassadors in tune with current pop culture is on the cards as well.

In contrast, IWC counts amongst its “friends of the brand” Kevin Spacey, Karolina Kurkova and Adriana Lima. Intriguingly, insiders say that IWC’s friends are literally friends, instead of contracted personalities as many celebrity endorsements are. So the question will be: whose friends are they?

Making friends around the world

Of the world’s 20 largest luxury watchmakers, only six are independent – that includes Breitling – and do not belong to a luxury conglomerate like LVMH or the Swatch Group. And of that six, four control majority of their distribution worldwide, only Breitling and Franck Muller do not. Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Chopard own most local distributors across the world, giving them both flexibility and discipline in prices and how to sell watches.

While Breitling does own some key national distributors, in the USA, UK and Japan (where it is outstandingly successful with its Breitling owner’s club), much of its distribution network is independent, even in major markets. Germany is handled by Trautmann, Brazil by Watch Time, while China, Hong Kong and much of South-East Asia is run by Melchers.

The reason that matters is pricing discipline, which usually translates into increased brand equity. Anecdotal evidence would indicate there are more fake Breitling watches sales hot on the grey market than IWC: there are just over 3700 IWC watches described as “new” on eBay, compared to over 7800 for Breitling. Even adjusting for Breitling’s bigger output by volume, making perhaps 40% more units than IWC, that is a major disparity.

When Richemont acquired IWC in 2000, distribution was similarly fragmented. Most of its Asian distribution, for example, was undertaken by Hagemeyer-Cosa Liebermann, a Dutch trading house now owned by its Swiss rival DKSH. Now IWC is distributed by the local or regional Richemont office in practically every market, alongside all the other brands in the group’s stable. Economies of scale in back office functions like distribution are a crucial reason why luxury conglomerates work.

Breitling, on the other hand, is one of the smallest independently-owned watchmakers, less than half the size of the next largest, Chopard (which also sells jewellery). Consequently, Breitling probably lacks the financial muscle to control distribution globally. The solution might instead be a ruthless but prudent pruning of distributors and retailers, with greater reliance on reliable partners.

Feasible only with strong, hands-on leadership, that would be similar to what Jean-Claude Biver practiced as he turned Hublot around. Even after Hublot was acquired by LVMH, the watchmaker still retains independent distributors in important markets like South-East Asia where it works with The Hour Glass, and Ares Distributors in the USA.

While it is his time at IWC that made Georges Kern a power player in the watch industry, it is perhaps his earlier role in TAG Heuer that might be instructive as to what will unfold at Breitling. Before joining Richemont in 2000, just after it acquired the group that owned IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre and A. Lange & Söhne, Kern spent eight years at TAG Heuer, which was then the most acclaimed turnaround story in watchmaking. It was his first job in the watch business, following a short stay at Kraft, and one that Kern has stated was a formative experience.

In 1988, a trio of Booz Allen Hamilton management consultants were hired by the Saudi-owned investment firm Techniques d’Avant Garde (TAG) to rebuild the ailing business. The three consultants, including brand president Christian Viros, embarked on a strategy of aggressive outsourcing and even more aggressive marketing (with the tagline “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” that’s been revived recently), leading to revenue growth of averaging almost 30% a year.

By the time of the NYSE IPO in 1996, sales topped US$300m, some six-times what they were in 1988. The stock offering was 10-times oversubscribed, allowing its owners to make several times their initial investment, and the three consultants to walk away with reputed eight-figure payouts. And that is probably what CVC and Kern will hope to do.
