An old buddy of mine from college recently bought himself a Breitling, because what better watch goes better with his Bentley Continental GT? Yes, my friend Charles is quite wealthy. He was bragging so much with his new acquisition, about the fact that it’s such a limited piece and so on, that I decided to mock him and I ordered a Breitling replica for myself, since I cannot afford the original.
Firstly, let me tell you, what started as a practical joke turned out to be one of the best investments I made in years. All our common friends were asking me if I borrowed or stole Charles watch, because we all know how fond he is of it. When I told them it’s only a Breitling replica, they couldn’t believe it. And neither did Charles for that matter. He was steaming, all the guys mocking him for paying a small fortune for something that I only paid a couple hundred dollars.
When this childish ridicule came to an end, we laughed it off and put our timepieces one next to the other, in order to compare them. Firstly, we shuffled them and put them on a table. Let me tell you, it took some time to guess them wrong. They were indistinguishable!
After a closer inspection, we discovered a few differences between my Breitling replica and his original watch, but not in a bad way, to be honest.
In the end as posh as he is, even Charles congratulated me for my acquisition, saying that if he knew of this, he would have done the same as myself. And that comes from a guy for whom money is no object. So trust me when I say this, buying a Breitling replica is better than spending a fortune on the genuine article.
