For this edition in the WristReview Exclusive series Clash of this Divers, we’re going to the darkest areas on Planet Earth we can consider where strange happenings occur daily, where weirdness is abundant, it’s also where watches such as Breitling’s Avenger Blackbird and Tudor’s recently released Black Bay dark watches reside when they are not scoping out and spying on our world. Whatever the reasons are, we seem to love our watches in stealth black these days, if it be a bold black porcelain case that you might discover on a Chanel or some Panerai, or a more simple PVD coating like people on Bell & Ross watches or Bamford modified Rolex Submariners. We have chosen two of the trendiest black diving watches for your approval in this edition and we can’t wait to begin.
Probably the three biggest watch companies which are completely independent of watch collection monopoly which is apparently going on nowadays (I am looking at you Swatch, Richemont and LVMH) are all Rolex, Patek Philippe and Breitling. This freedom from the other large players is a fantastic thing for Breitling avenger blackbird limited edition replica watch as it permits them to specify where they want their watches to go and they could more easily pick what to invest their cash into, due to their aviation backgrounds it is appropriate for them to invest in the Breitling jet display team along with the Breitling Wingwalkers, one of my favourite displays in the yearly RNAS Yeovilton Air Day I love attending. Within an interesting side-note, that is where most of the pictures for the Fortnight Review together with the Bell & Ross BR01 watch came from, I shopped for a total of two hours to climb into the cockpit of a USAF C-17 to receive those pictures, and I am still glad I did.
Back to the main theme, the militaristic layout inspiration marginally carries over to the Avenger Blackbird 44mm. The black echoes the idea that it may simply disappear if you’re not paying attention while the winged Breitling logo reminds you of Breitling avenger blackbird titanium imitation watch involvement with the aerospace market. Despite being a Rolex watch that makes it like the B2 Spirit of dive watches, one which you don’t have any idea of its existence until it is right along with you, to aid this idea even further Breitling avenger blackbird boutique edition replica watch asserts that the watchword for this piece is’Power in Action’, a fitting description should I do say so myself.
The case of the watch is made from super lightweight titanium that’s been provided a carbon treatment to make it this color and a satin treatment for additional measure. Despite the majority of the watch being black, the dial is still extremely legible thanks to a good measure of lume on the palms, hours markers along with the rider tab on the bezel at 12 O’clock. The distinctive rider tabs are on seafaring Breitling Avenger Blackbird 44 Replica watches for years and aid in making the bezel simple to adjust with gloves on. The dial also has a couple of red splashes onto it, they are at the end of the seconds hand, the border of the date window at 3 O’clock as well as the word’Automatic’ was composed text that is red.
In this Breitling view is a Breitling Calibre 17 movement which has been established of an ETA 2824-2 automatic movement and provides robust reliability and a quick set date attribute. The energy book offered by this movement exceeds 40 hours of run time, so you are safe to leave this at home for a weekend away, but given this watch loves to be on an adventure I don’t believe you’d need to leave it behind. The watch is 200m water resistant, a good thickness and very much deeper than you’d ordinarily scuba dive but it only boundaries on what we’d consider being a diving watch in any way, but it makes it also it has the essential tools to create it genuinely practical in sub-aqueous situations so that it’s all good for us!
For this calendar year, Tudor introduced to us their most popular model of view, the Heritage Black Bay, in one of the most asked variations, all black. Unlike Breitling, Tudor isn’t independent, in fact, there was a time when a Tudor watch was a Rolex using another logo and a lower price point. Nowadays, however, they receive their own layouts and their own followers too, although still owned by the crown, Tudor now creates its own watches and we love them .
Although they share a few similarities such as the font on the bezel, the hour mark on the dial along with the hour hand design, though it is not the classical Mercedes hand on Rolex versions, the notion is similar.
Aside from the black case in the watch, the other major selling point of this watch, one which even the Breitling avenger blackbird carbon fiber dial imitation watch does not have, is the new Tudor has an in-house manufactured motion. That’s right, those people who were sceptical of this company have been proven wrong, shortly I predict that most of the Tudor range will have an in-house made movement, I can’t wait.
Both watches are great investments also, these kinds of watches do not lose a lot of money if they are in a good condition, and that’s where Tudor’s PVD coating may cause an issue with someone who does not enjoy the abused and used look.
The winner of this month’s Clash of this Divers must function as Tudor. The Breitling avenger blackbird boutique edition fake watch a wonderful chance to have a blacked out watch and is going to be a safe investment, but the Tudor is so much cooler! Tudor watches tend to be that swish bit of technology which others may only dream about, the in-house motion, blacked out layout and 200m water resistance mean it’s rough and ready and able to blend in if necessary in the evenings.
