In 2013, Breitling Replica Watches released a very attractive blue version of the already very rare Navitimer 1461 model. An interesting project, let’s take a look at this amazing work. Let me solve it first. If other watch writers are like me, there is a special requirement (except “What watch should I buy?”), which will bother us. That is to write an article or summarize the current “observation trend.” This happens when watches are mixed into the fashionable deep-sea pool, which obviously requires reinventing some confusing things every quarter – for example, mass neglect of wearing clothes in civilized humans. Most watches that I prefer to pay attention to are always cool. Maybe not everyone is eternal, but they are attractive after the season (ideal longevity).
This rare watch features the Breitling 19 movement automatic movement. Basically this is a modified Swiss ETA 2892 automatic transmission with modules from Dubuis Depraz (I believe). The module of course provides a full 12-hour chronograph, but it also provides an annual calendar and moon phase indicator. Each horn sub dial has a dual purpose for calendar display. Confusingly, Breitling Replica does not call it the “annual calendar” but a “calendar calendar”. While the “annual calendar” is an industry-wide term that is confusing, it does make sense because the annual calendar means that the calendar needs to be adjusted once a year, and in fact only needs to be adjusted in the following year.
The 19 movement is actually quite complex, and according to Fake Breitling Watches, it contains more than 450 parts. Despite all the features, the power reserve is still 42 hours. In addition to time, calendar and chronograph, the moon phase is also an attractive addition to the feature set. What I find interesting is how to adjust the calendar function. The crown seems to be dedicated to the winding and time, while the putter is used for the chronograph. Embedded pushers (four of them) around the housing are used to adjust the date, day of the week, month or moon phase. This means that if you need to reset the calendar feature, it’s relatively easy and quick to do this (assuming you have some features to activate the pusher).
