Introducing The Breitling Replica Transocean Chronograph Edition

We like good Breitling replica, and the new Transocean Chronograph doesn’t disappoint. This model hankers for its roots a bit more than its predecessor with a vintage-feeling scheme and a simpler dial layout. Best of all, and unlike the earlier model, the Transocean Chronograph features a sapphire case back to showcase manufacture wares.

Is Breitling replica the date window necessary? It probably is if you’re a pilot or someone along those lines, but we’re not sure of how many Breitling replica owners actually fall into that category. The Breitling replica important thing is that the date is no longer between 4 and 5 o’clock like in the original limited edition release and that it’s no longer within a square window like in the Transocean Chronograph 38 (which we reviewed for A Week On The Wrist). These semantics have quite a bit of sway on balanced design. A centered, slender date on a narrower disc makes the window a more inclusive element (kind of like it did on this Longines 24-hour mono-pusher) as opposed to it being an afterthought.

The new Breitling replica Transocean also loses the hour register at 6 o’clock. You’re now limited to a 30-minute register at 3 o’clock, which won’t record a complete transcontinental race, but will still time burgers on a grill. All is still well.

The new model starts off with a 43 mm case (foreshadowing what’s inside) in highly-polished stainless steel with steeply curved lugs. Like most Breitling replica, you’re bound to feel every millimeter of it. The dial has what Breitling replica calls “twinzone silver décor,” but it’s more along the lines of champagne in color. The tachymeter scale (probably excessive on this watch) is still on the outer perimeter of the dial, only this time a darker disc highlights the applied hour markers and date window at 6 o’clock.
Inside the Transocean you will find the self-winding manufacture COSC caliber B01, which beats at 28,800 vph with at least 70 hours of power reserve, an appreciable feature. The movement will be visible thanks to a double back clasp cover. The cover Breitling replica can also be inscribed, adding special value as a keepsake.

The mesh bracelet on which Breitling replica released this model may not work for everyone, and that’s okay, because they’re also offering it on Barenia and crocodile leather straps. The new Transocean Chronograph will be limited to 2,000 pieces at a price of $9,695.

Introducing The Replica Breitling Transocean Unitime Pilot

While the Unitime has been in Replica Breitling stable of offerings since the 1950s (see more on that vintage beauty here), the B05 movement gives travelers unprecedented ease when it comes to shifting time zones. The caliber is based on the in-house B01, but has been outfitted with two rotating discs that are controlled by the crown. The first controls your city—flipping back and forth between zones automatically adjusts the hands and other indicators, including the calendar. The second is a 24-hour disc that allows one to see the time anywhere in the world at a glance – it’s this ring that separates a true worldtimer from a GMT with a cities ring.

Fueling our fire for summer jetsetting, Replica Breitling recently launched the latest in their Unitime series: the Transocean Unitime Pilot. Incorporating the company’s Caliber B05 movement, the Replica Breitling prominently features a worldtime complication in addition to the chronograph. Simply turning the crown snaps the date and time to your chosen city, and you’ve got 24 total zones to choose from, meaning you’re covered from Noumea to the Azores.The announcement of the Unitime Pilot included a limited 1,000-piece release of an all-black steel model, a serious aesthetic improvement over the world map illustration that graced the dial of the previous Transocean Chronograph Unitime. The Transocean Unitime Pilot is also available in steel or rose gold cases with blue or black dials. As you might expect, all versions feature the usual three-register Replica Breitling chronograph layout.

The high-frequency B05 movement is self-winding and features a beefy 70-hour power reserve. At 46mm in diameter, the Unitime Pilot clearly feel bound too closely to the vintage jet set inspiration. The large size aside, this is an incredibly practical complication for frequent fliers and Replica Breitling has reinvigorated it paring down the visuals and making operation more straightforward. If it is a smaller Replica Breitling you’re after though, check out our A Week on the Wrist review of the Replica Breitling Transocean Chronograph 38.
On the steel mesh strap, the steel Replica Breitling Transocean Unitime Pilot retails for $11,200, though it is also available on a leather strap ($10,715) and a croc strap ($11,090). For more details, visit Replica Breitling online.
