When it comes to this watch, the brand has also garnered attention in the last year for their collaboration with the fake Tudor in producing several new manufacture chronograph calibers such as the Breitling. Now, nodding toward their long-standing history with aviation, Breitling has released the Breitling Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition and the Chronoliner B04 Boutique Edition. These are limited-edition blue versions of popular Breitling models produced in small quantities of 100 each and available only in Breitling boutiques.
The replica Breitling’s new Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition differs from the standard model most prominently in its blue color theme with a blue “Vietnamese mother-of-pearl” dial and an individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. For those unfamiliar with the model, the fake Breitling Chronomat 44 is a 44mm stainless-steel, aviation-oriented replica watch capable of 500m of water resistance and equipped with Breitling and Tudor’s co-designed B01 caliber, a COSC-certified 47-jewel automatic movement manufactured by the Breitling replica with 70 hours of power reserve that oscillates at 28,800bph (4Hz).
The fake Breitling Chronoliner B04 is the Second in their limited series of boutique-only offerings, which is a special version of their Chronoliner which differs from the off-the-shelf version in its inclusion of the Breitling-manufactured B04 movement, blue color scheme, and similarly individually numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraving on the case back. The 47 jewel, self-winding, 70-hour-power-reserve, in-house-manufactured B04 movement is worthy of special mention for its capability of tracking both a second and third timezone by way of an additional red-tipped hand and a blue ceramic 24-hour bezel which has also been given the blue treatment.
