Well before Richard Mille’s crazy composite cheap replica watches, there was the replica Breitling Sprint made of resin. Originally produced with athletes in mind, this sporty fake watches is one we don’t see too often. We love it for its funky 1970s shape, bright orange dial, and of course the featherweight case.
The Sprint line was developed for athletes, so that they could time their performance and take their heart rate. This explains why resin was chosen for the case, as it allowed for a light presence on the wrist, much like Richard Mille timepieces in the last couple of decades. As a true child of the 1970s, the Sprint came in a variety of flashy colors; obviously it came in orange, but also in burgundy, blue and green. To this day, it looks effortlessly cool while remaining practical and reliable.
