I’m very excited about writing this phot review because it features one of my favorite brands, represented by a killer Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44. It’s one of the newest additions to my collection of replica watches and I must say, one of the best looking ones as well. I only hope you will agree with me here, just take a look and see for yourself.
I think of myself the biggest fake Breitling watches fan out there or at least, one of the biggest and there should be no doubt about it because I’ve got quite the collection to prove it. I’m a sucker for these big, masculine watches (despite my small wrist) because I believe that a watch is much more than a time measuring instrument, it’s pretty much the only acceptable piece of ‘jewelry’ that a man can wear.
Perhaps that’s a bit of an overstatement, because I don’t consider replica watches (watches in general as well) to be pieces of jewelry, although there are some fine looking bling-bling exceptions out there. Nevertheless, I believe that watches reflect one’s taste, style, aspirations and ultimately, his personality. That’s why I think a watch should have its own, distinct, strong personality and fake Breitling watches are chock full of that.
It’s very hard for me to say which is my favorite, but one that would definitely be right up there at the top would be the Superocean Heritage 46, as it made it to just about every Breitling tops on my blog. I know that the Heritage collection can be a little confusing for some so let me put it in layman’s terms:
– Breitling Superocean 42 replica – non-chrono, date window at 3 o’clock
– Breitling Superocean 44 replica – Chronograph, two subdials at 9 and 3 o’clock, date at 6
– Breitling Superocean 46 – non-chrono, date window at 6 o’clock (and awesome)
– Breitling Superocean 46 – chronograph, three subdials at 12, 9, 6 o’clock and date at 3
The one I’ll review in this post is the Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44 in stainless steel, blue dial and bezel. That being said, let’s get to it.
Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44 – Looks & Feel
This bay as you can see comes with a stainless steel mesh bracelet, a trademark of many fake Breitling watches. There is a small difference though between this and the original model, but I guess you’ve already noticed that (the original comes with a folding clasp).
The case is stainless steel as well, nicely polished all the correct details I’d say and that goes for the blue bezel as well which is impressive and such a beautiful shade of blue, as is the dial. Crown and pushers feel good and have a nice click to them.
Overall, I’d say the watch has a solid construction, good weight to it and of course, killer looks.
This baby is powered by a Japanese quartz movement and from my experience these are very reliable and most importantly, very precise. Of course, the purist in you may say that the original comes with an automatic movement but your practical side should appreciate Quartz. I’ve taken on this topic before, so I won’t get into it much, I’ll just say this: as long as running seconds are small, no one will notice.
Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44 – The Fold
Well, the fold is this – I’m glad I’ve added this baby to my collection. This comes not only from a Breitling fan, but from a huge replica watches collector as well. I think the Superocean Heritage line is one of the best collection of watches that I’ve ever seen. Such clean lines and yet so much ‘Breitling’ in them. I honestly am impressed with what these guys managed to come up with and I’m eager to see where will the future take us. Hopefully in the right direction, it would be a pity to see the Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44 or any of its brethren change too much in my humble opinion. That being said, let me know what you guys think about it in the comments section below.
