Believe it or not, but, contrary to popular beliefs, perhaps not all of Breitling replica watches do look the same. A45320B9/BD42-101W reviewed and other models), by way of instance, features an extremely unusual (for its Swiss-based brand) mix of a sculpted body that looks more slender that it actually is, a remarkable set of crown-guards, and a comparatively thin bezel that nonetheless exhibits all the relevant information for either an amateur diver or an expert pilot. Perhaps, the only thing that it needs is the usual notches which were apparently dropped here in order for its shiny surface to better match that of this circumstance. Well, nothing is perfect.
Being basically a slightly refinished and corrected to COSC standards chronometer-grade variant of the well-known ETA 2834-2 caliber (the same mechanism is used at less expensive Altanus Master Classic Gran Data and Paul Picot Gentleman Arc-en-ciel (Rainbow) versions ), the engine features a little bit as obvious day/date screen with the former placed at 12 hours and the latter remaining during its usual place at 3 o’clock.
Yes, the mechanism might be not among these exclusive in-house movements that the Swiss brand has been churning out because of their more expensive models, but it is in fact very reliable, quite precise and, being produced by ETA, is quite easy to fix to any accredited professional in your city.
As you can see, the design not only makes the eye look more balanced using the day of week aperture partially compensating for its visual overweightness of Breitling Galactic replica watches’s famous”winged B” emblem, but is also more legible, which can be a good thing for all those overseas customers who never studied English.
Although on those promotional photographs the wristwatch appears refreshingly thin (I mean, Breitling Galactic 44 imitation watch is one of those watchmakers who was never shy to make a hamburger of timepiece), it is not actually correct. According to official information, the device measures 14.30 millimeters top to bottom. But thanks to its mildly oversize body that, as its name tells us, is 44 mm broad, the situation indeed looks very slender. The effect is achieved not only thanks to well-calculated proportions, but also with help of little layout suggestions, such as well curved side profile, oversize onion-shaped setting crown and relatively thin unidirectional rotating bezel.
What I love about this timekeeper are the crown guards. Shaped as a pair of wings, they not only echo the aforementioned”winged B”, but also reference the brand’s strong bonds with anything that’s remotely connected to aviation and space industry.
Currently, Breitling Galactic 44 Automatic imitation watches offers the timepiece in stainless steel with three versions of dial (Trophy black, black Metallica blue, and Sierra silver) and five variations of straps, including crocodile black and leather cloth strap.
