Containing the new in-house-made Caliber B03 automatic split-second chronograph movement, the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante adds an uncommon complication to the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante Replica Watches UK, and a complication that I don’t think I’ve previously seen from the brand.
Breitling further explains that the rattrapante mechanism module is produced using an efficient 28 parts and is designed to be totally removed – and if needed, replaced – to facilitate easy servicing. Further, Breitling Replica Watches claims that while the B03’s split-second chronograph has been specially designed to use parts which are simpler to produce than more historic rattrapante models, this also provides the mechanism with more precise and reliable use.
Rattrapante chronographs are a bit difficult to explain without demonstrating them. The idea is that a main chronograph is supplemented with an additional chronograph seconds hand. A pusher in the crown is used to activate this additional Cheap Breitling Fake Watches chronograph seconds hand, which can be used to independently measure a one-minute interval while the main 12-hour chronograph is in operation. Prior to digital devices these were clearly a bit more useful, but in today’s “technique-eager” luxury watch world, lots of people swoon over mechanical technology such as this.
The Breitling Caliber B03 Replica Watches UK automatic chronograph movement is COSC Chronometer-certified and operates at 4Hz with a power reserve of 70 hours. The movement features the time, date, and 12-hour chronograph with split-second “rattrapante” functionality. Otherwise, this is very much your traditional Navitimer dial, only in brown. The design comes complete with a slew of markers and indicators, including the famed rotating slide-rule bezel for making various mathematical calculations only people in extreme emergencies will rely upon.
To launch the caliber B03, Cheap Breitling Replica chose the 45mm-wide Navitimer watch with the brown dial in two case materials: steel, and 18ct red gold as a limited edition. The brown dials are matched to padded brown crocodile straps. Though Breitling will also offer the Navitimer Rattrapante on a leather or rubber strap.
To be honest, I’m not always sure who the target demographic is for split-second chronographs. It is a special sort of watch collector who values both sport Breitling Replica watches and high-complications – but in the same timepiece. Breitling does well to reassert their design and production strengths with this new version of the B01 series movement as the B03.
