To help transform the Breitling collection, Kern brings Guy Bove, who has served as Chopard’s creative director for the past decade and played an important role in launching the company’s L.U.C premium watch collection. Prior to this, he worked for Kern for six years at IWC, a high-end but less compelling sports watch brand owned by the Richemont Group. Bove’s profile is to update the Breitling Replica Watches collection, including cleaner, more modern designs, but to get inspiration from the archives (Breitling was founded in 1884). “The idea is not to recreate old watches,” Bove said. “I think it’s more about taking raw materials from old ones and using them in new formulations.” Not all of these ingredients can be cut. Fans were shocked when Breitling launched the Navitimer 8 without a slider, a distinct feature since the 1950s. It’s not that slide rules are considered outdated; in fact it’s too modern. The new design was inspired by the chronograph made by Breitling in the 1930s and 1940s, a time before the landslide rule.
Breitling Navitimer Features
The Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 has a date window at 6 o’clock, which is a very nice extra feature for everyday watches. The dial on the steel dial is black or blue with an alligator strap and sporty white top stitching. There is also a steel version with a 18K red gold bezel and a beige dial with a brown alligator strap. The gold beaded bezel and gold accents make this watch look like a completely different watch – despite the sliding rules, it is even more beautiful than the previous Navitimers. In fact, I think it is the same as what most women really want during the day. Watch out for other brands – it’s really possible to make a women’s watch instead of over-identifying it by layering mother-of-pearl, diamonds, flowers or colored bands.
The Navitimer 1 Automatic 38 is priced at $4,860 and features a steel case with a blue or black dial on the steel strap; $4,310 with a steel case, blue dial and blue or black crocodile watch Belt; $6,360, steel and gold case, silver dial with steel bracelet; and $5,820 with steel and gold case, silver dial and gold alligator strap. The rose gold style is particularly feminine, especially on the bracelet. This is a model that I feel comfortable day and night. In general, I feel that Breitling Replica is really on the right track, with the ladies’ works, folding them into models in the existing collection and designing them with unisex charm.
