Breitling fans are never short of new pieces to gawk at, and the brand loves to keep delivering. With the Breitling Chronoliner red gold limited edition, one of their most handsome offerings gets the high-end treatment and is as masculine as a gold watch can get. Fans of the standard black dial fake Breitling Chronoliner watch will no doubt lust after this piece, but keep in mind it will come in a limited run of 250 pieces.
Breitling’s Chronoliner triple time zone chronograph is inspired by watches from the 1950s and 1960s, and relays a compelling vintage spirit that doesn’t come off as contrived. The new delicate replica Breitling is presented in a 46mm red gold case crowned with a black ceramic bezel. The ceramic bezel – as opposed to a metal bezel – adds a touch of class to this watch and softens the contrast of gold on black, which can at times be too loud. Red gold helps in this way as well. The numbers on the black ceramic bezel are in brushed gold to aid legibility, an important factor given that the bezel is used as a third time zone indicator.
Equipped with a triple time zone indicator, the white scale fake Breitling Chronoliner lets you consult three separate time zones at a glance. As with most traditional GMT watches, local time is set with the hands and the second time zone can be consulted with a red-tipped central hand against a 24-hour scale. The third time zone is indicated on the rotating bezel, also presented in a 24-hour mode.
Combining a chronograph with a triple time zone indicator means there is a lot of information to relay, but the dial is surprisingly neat and tidy. The white tricompax display, balanced by a date window and the logo on the right, provides a sharp contrast with the matte black dial, and the 30-minute counter features six luminescent rectangles, characteristic of the Breitling Chronoliner DNA. The subdials are decorated with a circular motif and a grey border for increased legibility, and the red gold hands and indices are treated with luminescence. In keeping with its retro personality, the chronograph functions are activated with piston-shaped pushers.
The black rubber strap replica Breitling Chronoliner is equipped with an ETA Valjoux 7754 automatic movement, a GMT adaptation of the ubiquitous Valjoux 7750, and the movement is a COSC-certified chronometer. Water-resistant to 100 metres, the fake Breitling Chronoliner red gold limited edition comes on a black rubber strap which emulates the weave of the steel mesh bracelet of the Aero Classic watch.
