Breitling B55 Replica Watch

Feast your eyes on the 2015 Breitling B55 Connected Watch that connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone… in a way you want it to. This is pretty interesting news and a very clever way for an established Swiss watch maker like Breitling to assert itself as a modern brand but also respect the functionality of a standalone timepiece.

The Breitling Cockpit B50 had Breitling produce a new Superquartz movement that was exclusive to them and featured a rechargeable battery and some extra functionality compared to their existing Superquartz-based timepiece with an ETA movement. It was so close to a smartwatch… but just shy of having real connectivity. Now just a few months later, in advance of Baselworld 2015, Cheap Breitling Replica more-or-less updates the same watch to the Breitling B55 Connected, and unless the pricing is very different, I’d probably say that the B50 might not be as attractive, depending on what you want to do with it.

So the most important question you should have is, “is this a smartwatch?” Sort of… I tend to think of a smartwatch as a timepiece that connects with your phone in order to display information from your phone such as notifications, etc… For the Breitling B55 Connected, your phone and watch do communicate with one another, and do share some pieces of data, but the Breitling B55 Connected is not about giving you missed call notifications or tracking your daily steps. Think of your smartphone with the Breitling B55 Connected app to serve as a sort of remote control for the watch, allowing you to quickly update the time and calendar, and more-or-less adjust all the settings such as alarms, time zones indicators, and the various time measurement functions the Breitling B55 Connected has. This is a pilot watch, after all, so most of the functions revolve around flight.The Breitling B55 Connected comes in a 46mm wide black-coated titanium case. The dial is almost identical to that of the Cockpit B50 but there is a blue “connected” symbol on the dial that looks like a wifi symbol. This element will no doubt be among the more controversial elements of the design. I’m pretty sure there could have been a slicker way to do that, but maybe in person, it will look really cool. Otherwise, you have a rather standard modern Breitling Swiss Replica look that is very functional-looking and masculine.

If you are interested in the Breitling B55 Connected, I strongly encourage you to read my previous article on the Cockpit B50 to understand more about the watch, such as how you can tilt your wrist to activate the backlight. Not a new function in the scheme of watches, but we do all applaud when the Swiss catch up. I more-or-less see the Breitling B55 Connected as the ultimate G-Shock, and in a sense, it is.

I look forward to playing with the Breitling Replica Watches Reviews Connected myself, since I am excited to consider the possibilities. I have a feeling that with an app controlling the timepiece’s functions via Bluetooth, and a battery that last months this is going to be a very interesting merger of the smartwatch world and the traditional Swiss sports watch world. If there is a high-end quartz watch to own in 2015, it just might be the Breitling B55 Connected. No price yet, but I have a feeling it will be similar to that of the B50.

Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel Replica Watch

I amquite fond of the Chronoliner watch that was launched last year by Breitling. It wasn’t Breitling’s first vintage-inspired watch, of course – there’s the entire Transocean collection for that – but I thought that the Chronoliner offered a better mix of vintage-inspired looks and modern toughness and reliability. At this point, I would like to draw your attention to the ceramic bezel, which as I’m sure most readers will know, is virtually scratch- and fade-proof. Plus, the bezel rotates, which means the Breitling Replica Watches Chronoliner is capable of tracking up to three time zones simultaneously – a big plus for functionality. For this year, Breitling has updated the looks with an all-black version called – quite aptly, I might add – the Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel.

The new Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel that you see here is essentially a blacked-out version of the original Chronoliner that debuted last year. The case is still crafted out of steel, but it has been given a carbon-based treatment which makes it black but, more importantly, also makes it more resistant to the rigors of daily wear. The case size and thickness are both unchanged at 46mm and 15.95mm, respectively, which means that the Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel is a big, chunky watch but not out of the norm by Breitling standards. It has also retained the black bidirectional ceramic bezel and vintage-style pushers which I love. Water resistance is 100m, which is only fitting for a sports watch.What has changed, however, is the dial, hands, and strap. Instead of the “panda” dial with cream-white subdials, the Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel has, you guessed it, an all-black dial. That said, legibility isn’t hampered because the subdials are slightly recessed and come in a slightly lighter shade.The other major change is the strap. While the Chronoliner was offered in a choice of Breitling’s Ocean Classic mesh strap or a Navitimer style steel bracelet, the Breitling Swiss Replica will be offered with a rather unusual rubber strap that has been designed to mimic the look of mesh straps. Breitling calls this the Rubber Aero Classic rubber strap.

Finally, the hands have been given a blacked-out treatment as well, but legibility doesn’t seem to have been adversely affected since the hands and hour markers have generous amounts of luminescence on them. That said, the Best Replica Breitling hand does seem to be a little difficult to spot since it’s so small, but this is a problem that’s carried over from the older Chronoliner.

Inside, the Breitling Chronoliner Blacksteel is powered by the Breitling 24 caliber, which is really Breitling-speak for a Valjoux 7754. It combines the chronograph function with a GMT module, and it’s a time-tested movement that we have no complaints about. Along with the 24-hour markings on the dial and the bidirectional bezel, as noted, this means that the Breitling Replica Watches Reviews Chronoliner Blacksteel can track time in up to three timezones simultaneously. Power reserve is an adequate 42 hours. And since it’s a Brielting, the watch is of course chronometer-certified by COSC, so accuracy shouldn’t be an issue.
