In recent years, there haven’t been many exciting replica Breitling watches in the market, except for the GF-produced Avenger BlackBird. It seems that Breitling has lost some of its popularity compared to before. It’s difficult for me to recommend a good Breitling replica watch, apart from the GF Avenger BlackBird and some Superocean models. I haven’t come across any other replica Breitling watches that are worth buying. However, I would like to introduce a Breitling Navitimer watch made by KOR. Although KOR is not a new factory and has been in the market for a while, they have gained recognition for producing high-quality replicas of Cartier Panthere watches. The reason I’m mentioning this Breitling Navitimer watch is because it is one of the few replicas that utilize an original Swiss movement.
I’m not a fan of the Navitimer; it’s just too big for my liking. Even this smaller 38mm*10mm version doesn’t appeal to me. The dial is also quite unfamiliar, with too many digits and letterings whose meanings escape me. It’s clear that many people wouldn’t choose a Breitling Navitimer for everyday wear. The bezel, with its numerous flutes, looks a bit overdone, and overall, the design of the Navitimer doesn’t align with my personal style. However, I must admit that the case finish of this Navitimer from KOR factory is exceptional, especially with the original Swiss movement.
KOR provides three dial color options: black, blue, and white. Among these, I personally prefer the blue dial. The thin bezel surrounding the dial creates an illusion of a larger appearance, despite the case diameter being only 38mm. The multi-layer construction of the dial enhances its layout, ensuring it doesn’t appear cluttered and maintains good readability. The stainless steel stick hour markers and three-dimensional central hour and minute hands add a touch of high-quality craftsmanship to the watch, with their multiple cutting faces.
The primary highlight of this Breitling replica watch is its movement, featuring a Swiss SW200 automatic caliber. In the future, I plan to write an article introducing other replica watches in the market that utilize original Swiss movements. The Swiss SW200 is a reliable movement, offering stability comparable to the Swiss ETA 2824. With this movement, the thickness of this Breitling Navitimer 1 replica measures at only 10mm. Additionally, it’s worth noting that KOR also provides a clone 2824-2 movement option for this Navitimer model.
