Historically speaking, quartz innovations have long enjoyed a key role in Breitling‘s range of modern offerings – particularly as a cornerstone of the brand’s Professional line of aviation-themed watches. Now joining that collection is a brand first: the Breitling Replica Watches Chronospace EVO B60, fitted with Breitling’s very first in-house manufactured SuperQuartz chronograph movement – a flyback characterized with a 24-hour register, a center-minute counter, and a few neat features exclusive to the Grenchen manufactory.
The new Breitling Replica sits somewhere between the aforementioned – chiefly as an ultra-accurate quartz chronograph with a few Breitling-exclusive features designed to best serve its core user base: professional pilots, and watch enthusiasts looking for a reliable tool watch that does a little more than its quartz competition.
On paper, the new Breitling B60 movement behaves similarly to the ETA-manufactured 251.292, which is essentially a flyback quartz chronograph – and we’ve seen this before, in the Replica Watches UK Night Mission introduced late last year. It’s a chronometer-certified, thermocompensated “SuperQuartz” movement, which is rated to +/- 10 seconds a year, compared to standard quartz movements which tend to drift up to 15 seconds in a month.
However, while the B60 maintains that accuracy along with the flyback chronograph functionality, it also introduces a center-stop minute counter, in addition to a handy 24-hour counter at 9:00. Furthermore, the Fake Breitling Watches movement carries a lap function, which stops the chronograph hands to measure split times, then jumps the hands ahead to resume measuring the total elapsed flight or lap time.
From a visual aesthetic standpoint, the new Chronospace has a fair bit in common with the Chronospace EVO Night Mission mentioned previously – both are housed in nicely finished, 43mm titanium cases, which measure just under 12mm thick each. However, on the new Breitling Replica Watches B60, the three contrasting registers are now clustered more closely to the center of the dial, which brings a little more balance to an otherwise busy presentation, toeing that fine line in a way that only Breitling can.
