US Perfect Replica Breitling AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition In Rose Gold For Sale
Georges Kern has taken Swiss made fake Breitling on a new journey, culminating in a streamlined portfolio smattered with re-sharpened vintage references, perfect for our increasing appetite for nostalgia. For me, the AVI ref.765 is the culmination of what seems to be a newfound purity within the range and, even with my own love for pure functionality, I am drawn to the glimmer of gold. I find few other pilot’s watches more tempting than the rose gold version, with the idiosyncratic appearance only adding to the charm of vintage flight instrument chic. Sitting on a hand-stitched dark brown leather strap, it is only slightly larger than its workmanlike original, at 41mm, with a perfectly matched high dome sapphire crystal.
What seals the deal for me is the warmth of the rose gold with the silky cream colour and vintage thickness of applied Super-LumiNova for the Arabic numerals, matched by delicate syringe hands and needle seconds. The registers are printed with a pared-back purity, countered by the 15-minute counter at 3 o’clock with its five chubby lume rectangles for increased visibility. The rose gold and cream creates an illusory chocolate tint to the matte black dial surface, and does make it difficult for me to concentrate on the functionality, which is here in spades. Thankfully, best replica Breitling has foregone a high-tech automatic, instead we have the hand-wound in-house B09 caliber. Ticking at 4Hz and offering some 70 hours of power reserve, this version uses a column wheel, displaying running seconds, a 15-minute counter (three o’clock) and a 12-hour counter at six. What more can you want: spirit, functionality and the perfect feel of winding a hand-wound calibre.
