Breitling replica 765 aopa chronograph

We’ll talk about what I think is, hands down, one of the most perfect chronographs ever created, the Breitling 765 AOPA. In case you’re in denial, have been reading elsewhere or are blinded by the fact that the brand’s current offerings are far different (read: much larger) than its historic lineup, vintage Breitling offers a true treasure trove of goodies for the vintage chronograph collector. Well over a year ago, I compiled a lengthy interview with a couple Breitling experts and it ultimately covered but a fraction of the incredible models once offered by the aerospace-focused maker. Since that time, the brand has gained more and more respect amongst hardcore collectors, but the reality is that Breitlings replica still lag their counterparts – especially the very similar Heuer. Well, folks, wake up, clear the funk from your eyes and shake the water from your ears, the watch I’ll detail today is special – truly. Oh, and to provide a little of that jet setting, swingin’ 60’s style, I’ve thrown in some backgrounds of some classic spirits…enjoy – in moderation.

The Breitling 765 AOPA – Last of the Premiers
The cheap Breitling replica 765 AOPA was produced from roughly 1964-1966 as part of the Premier line. In fact, this model – along with a white-dialed version and a similar dial but with “Breitling” in lieu of “AOPA” – marked the end of the Premier line. In Breitling Lexicon, Premiers were the top of the line and predated the famous navigational instruments, such as the Chronomat and Navitimer, by debuting in the late 1930’s. The name “Premier”, itself, found its way to the dial by the early 40’s. A view back to our Experts article will show you just some of the many, many models Breitling made under this moniker during the approximately 30 years that the Premiers were marketed. Previously overlooked by collectors because there were so many different models and perhaps because so many featured traditional dials, the Premiers have become quite popular. Why is that? As mentioned, Premiers were top rung pieces from Breitling and, therefore, featured spectacular casework, high-end movements and were often made in solid gold. Plus, when viewing early 40’s versions, you’re often duped into thinking that you’re viewing cheap replica watches from a much later period. Credit case sizes often above the magic 36mm mark, high quality dial printing, and sporty features like tachymeter scales.

The Premiers Ahead of Their Time and Then Behind the Times
By the time the mid 1960’s came around, the watch world was in a state of flux. While this is pure hearsay, one could imagine that Breitling was forced to embrace a sportier, likely more budget conscious, culture and they were clearly looking ahead to quartz and, in the case of chronographs, automatic movements. Therefore, the more formal Premier, including the Breitling 765 AOPA, line was likely a slow seller due to higher costs (we’ll detail one source of expense, the amazing case, in a bit) and the fact that the brand offered some relatively similar, but more affordable, watches.

The Breitling 765 AOPA – Just One of Many Amazing 1960’s Chronographs by the Brand
Step outside the subject of this article, the Breitling 765 AOPA, for a moment and gaze at the picture above you. Consider the fact that one could have walked into a jeweler in 1965 and had their choice of the 765CP, the Top Time 810, and the 765 AOPA (well, maybe that was only available via mail order, but you get my drift). By the way, that doesn’t even take into account the Navitimer, Super Ocean and on and on. Back on task! Continue to look above and you can see the familial similarities in all three watches. The granddaddy of them all, the Premier, shares some traits with the other two watches that extends beyond the mutual employment of the Venus 178.

7649
Let’s start with the more affordable newcomer line, the Top Time. The 765 Premier used a 38mm case and a bold 21mm lug width. The 810 followed through with a similar footprint. We recently featured a #TBT on the 810 and it is definitely a magical replica watches uk, but hear me out, it absolutely pales in comparison to the Breitling 765 AOPA. One look at this watch’s case finishing – its crazy chamfers and the machined in bezel ring around the crystal – tells you that the AOPA is simply made of a different style of sauce. Stylistically, reverse pandas are found on both as well as identical handsets, so there’s definitely a link.

7650
There’s less of a visual relationship between the Breitling 765 AOPA and the big 765CP, but the fact that both are numerically related speaks to their pilot-use intentions. Still, both feature screw down casebacks, chevron-shaped lug chamfers and triangular lume plots at 3/6/9:00. A massive signed “B” crown not only looks great, but also makes gloved use feasible.

When Simple is Beautiful
Relationships aside, what makes the Breitling 765 AOPA so attractive to me is its striking simplicity. The lack of the Breitling name on the dial and the use of the winged AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) gives the watch an almost military look. The big, lumed Arabic numerals are additive to the theme and contrasted against a matte black dial, make for one seriously legible chronograph. White main hands and sub registers also help to brighten the overall look.

7653
We’ve mentioned the case quality already on the Breitling 765 AOPA, but some details are worth repeating. Take a close look at the transition from the lugs to the perfectly domed acrylic crystal. That matte finished flat channel seen prior to the polished bezel ring really “breaks up” the watch visually. It’s an elegant move that was likely axed by the bean counters when the Top Time came along. The side view is nearly as interesting where brushed sides interplay with polished lug chamfers and a similarly mirrored case underside.

Even the case back is wonderfully detailed with the model number and the only evidence that, in fact, what we are viewing is actually a Breitling.

From 1915 to Today,5 Milestone Breitling Replica Watches

Pilots rely on Breitling’s chronographs, but calendars, world timers and divers’ watches also are part of the brand’s 130-plus-year history. Here are five important Breitling replica watches that helped define the brand’s identity from 1915 through the modern day.

1. Breitling Chronomat

7512
Breitling Chronomat (1941)
Launched in 1941, the Breitling Chronomat was based on a patent document that Breitling submitted in 1940: patent number 217012 granted protection for an instrument-style wristwatch with a circular slide rule. This clever system made it quick and relatively easy to perform various measurements and mathematical operations, e.g., the conversion of speeds or distances from one unit of measurement to another, multiplication, division, and cross-multiplication. This new timepiece attracted many aficionados in sports and industry, and technicians appreciated its special features, which made their work easier. Later versions of the Chronomat with different cases and dials were the earliest ancestors of Breitling’s legendary Navitimer. The watch shown here contains Venus Caliber 175. A special feature of this cheap replica watches is a counter for 45 elapsed minutes – a detail welcomed by soccer fans.

2. Breitling Navitimer replica

Breitling Navitimer (1952)
Don’t be misled: this watch’s name, which was trademarked in 1955, has nothing to do with the navy. The Breitling Navitimer, which debuted in 1952, was designed to help pilots coordinate time and navigation: it was equipped with calculating functions. Advertisements described this multifunctional device, which contained the hand-wound Caliber Venus 178, as a “personal onboard instrument.” The built-in slide rule enabled aviators to multiply and divide, convert nautical miles to land miles, and calculate averages, fuel consumption, average gain of altitude, and distances during ascent and landing. Fumbling with paper and pencil while in flight could be at least partially eliminated. Since it was introduced, the Navitimer has undergone various changes, mainly to its case and the calibers it housed, i.e., hand-wound, hand-wound with date, or self-winding, but no one has ever tampered with its most distinctive feature: its circular slide rule.

3. Breitling Chrono-Matic

Breitling Chrono-Matic (1969)
Sales of chronographs declined markedly during the second half of the 1960s. Breitling and its competitor Heuer formed a partnership to develop the first automatic chronograph and hoped that its launch would help counteract the downturn. The adventure began in 1965, when the two firms, along with Büren Watch and Dubois Dépraz, signed a contract to develop the watch; they called the venture Project 99. Büren was taken on as movement supplier because of its experience with micro-rotors. No other type of self-winding caliber could permit the rearward and thus service-friendly installation of the specially developed chronograph module because the small oscillating weight didn’t interfere with the two arbors of the elapsed-time counters. Furthermore, the date ring was positioned directly under the dial. Modular architecture also made it possible to install the crown on the left side, where it clearly showed that this was a self-winding watch. Breitling replica uk and Heuer (now TAG Heuer) were responsible for the design, the dials, the cases and the other components. The first prototypes of Caliber 11, which ran at 19,800 vph, were available in the spring of 1968. The official launch of the Breitling Chrono-Matic, the world’s first automatic chronograph with micro-rotor, took place simultaneously in Geneva and New York on March 3, 1969. When the curtains rose, the project had already consumed about half a million Swiss francs.

4. Breitling Emergency

Breitling Emergency (1995)
The Breitling Emergency, which debuted in 1995, was designed to save lives in critical situations. The Breitling Emergency was developed in collaboration with professional pilots. Breitling equipped the flip-open case of this big titanium replica watches uk with a micro-transmitter set to the international air distress frequency of 121.5 MHz. The transmitter of the Breitling Emergency could send signals via an extendible wire antenna if the wearer needed help. Once activated, the transmitter would repeatedly emit a 0.75-second impulse every 2.25 seconds. If transmitted from flat terrain, the signal could be received within 160 kilometers (99.4 miles) of the disaster site by search planes flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters (19,685 feet). Two lithium batteries in the Breitling Emergency provided enough power to keep the transmitter operating for 48 hours. The electronic time-measuring module, which could measure elapsed intervals to the nearest 1/100 of a second, also had a countdown function, an alarm, and a time display in a second zone. This information was shown in digital form. Pilots in aerobatic squadrons from many nations chose to wear these watches.

5. Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime

7516
Breitling Transocean Unitime (2012)
Breitling’s headliner for 2012 followed in the footsteps of its world-timer Unitime, which made its debut in 1951. From a technical and functional standpoint, the new watch, the Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime, was light-years ahead of its historical predecessor. The improvements began with the self-winding manufacture chronograph movement and continued with the mechanism under the dial. All indicators could be set and adjusted, either forward or backward, via the crown. When a traveler reaches his destination, he rotates the new reference city to 12 o’clock. This action triggers the central hour hand, the date display and the 24-hour ring to reset themselves automatically; only the minutes and seconds hands continue to run unaffected. The technicians also thought of daylight savings or summer time: they included little sun symbols on the city ring that could be used to make one-hour corrections. Breitling offers the city ring with the cities’ names written in several languages. The 46-mm case is water resistant to 100 meters and, like all Breitling fake watches, is COSC certified.

Breitling Avenger replica Blackbird 44

One of Breitling’s latest models, the stealthy Avenger Blackbird 44 features a ultra-durable case material and superior mechanics. The timepiece is powered by a Breitling replica caliber 17. The self-winding movement beats at 28,8000 vibrations per hour and boasts a 40 hour power reserve. The titanium case features a carbon-based treatment, allowing its stealthy appearance and ensuring protection under extreme conditions. The 44 millimeter case is water resistant to 660 feet and includes a screw-locked crown with two gaskets and a screwed in caseback. A unidirectional, ratcheted bezel sits atop the case and frames the dial. The dial continues the all-black motif and is accentuated with a red highlighted date aperture at 3 o’clock and luminous counters. Finishing the timepiece, a military strap with matching titanium bezel.
