Baselworld 2017 sees the debut of a brand new member of this famed Breitling Navitimer collection with a new movement and the addition of a split-second chronograph (rattrapante) complication. Containing the newest in-house-made Caliber B03 automatic split-second chronograph movement, the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante adds an uncommon complication to the Breitling Navitimer 1 b03 rattrapante 45 boutique edition replica watch, along with a complication I do not think I have previously seen from the newest.
Split-second chronographs are coveted not too much for their functionality (though I do admit they are fun to play with) but rather because they are tricky to assemble. It was really not until Richard Habring developed a particular”low-cost” split-second chronograph module to the 7750 for IWC (where he worked in the time) that I feel the rattrapante mechanism has been available for the (comparable) masses. Breitling navitimer rattrapante limited edition imitation watch B03 more than likely takes a different approach to building a split-second chronograph system, but is more accessible in price than, say… one from Patek Philippe.
Breitling further clarifies the rattrapante mechanism is made utilizing an efficient 28 parts and is made to be completely removed — and if necessary, replaced — to facilitate easy servicing. Further, Breiting claims that although the B03’s split-second chronograph was specially designed to utilize parts which are easier to produce than more historic rattrapante versions, this also provides the mechanics with more precise and dependable use. I state this because many split-second chronographs, given the delicate nature of their structure, are not celebrated for their reliability or precision. Note the fun design element where the Breitling anchor B emblem is divided, so that half of it is on the primary chronograph seconds hand, and the other is on the rattrapante hand.
The Breitling navitimer rattrapante preis replica watch Caliber B03 automatic chronograph movement is COSC Chronometer-certified and operates in 4Hz (28,800bph) using a power reserve of 70 hours. The motion comprises the time, date, and 12-hour chronograph with split-second”rattrapante” functionality. Otherwise, this is extremely much your conventional Navitimer dial, only in brown. The design comes complete with a slew of indicators and markers, including the famous rotating slide-rule bezel for making different mathematical calculations only people in extreme crises (or using intense analog calculator fetishes) will rely upon.
To establish the caliber B03, Breitling chose the 45mm-wide Navitimer watch together with the brown dial in 2 case materials: steel, and 18ct red gold as a limited edition. The brown dials (Breitling really requires them”Panamanian Bronze”) are paired to padded brown crocodile straps. Though Breitling navitimer rattrapante prix imitation watch will also offer the Navitimer Rattrapante on a rubber or leather strap.
In all honesty, I’m not always sure who the target demographic is to get split-second chronographs. It’s a distinctive type of watch collector who appreciates both game watches and high-complications — however in precisely the exact same timepiece. Breitling Navitimer 1 B03 Chronograph Rattrapante 45 Replica watch does nicely to reassert their design and production strengths with this new version of the B01 series movement as the B03. The Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante will be initially available in steel as well as in a limited edition of 250 pieces in 18ct red gold. breitling.com
