Breitling chose its flagship Navitimer to debut the new chronograph Caliber B03 with split-seconds function, Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante Caliber B03 watch replica. At first glance it looks like a totally ordinary Navitimer chronograph, a model that has been a familiar icon for the past 55 years. Characteristic details include a fluted, bidirectional rotatable bezel, which, when turned, carries a light-colored flange marked with a logarithmic slide-rule scale. A tenth of an inch further inward is the tachymeter scale, which, in turn, encircles the elapsed-seconds scale with precise quarter-of-a-second divisions as imposed by the 4-Hz rhythm of the Breitling manufacture Caliber B03.
The three light-colored counters on the dial of replica Breitling Navitimer rattrapante watch are also familiar. The first is for the chronograph’s elapsed minutes, the second for the elapsed hours and the third for the continually running seconds. The trio distinguishes the new Navitimer’s bronze-colored dial, which is the first exclusive feature of this new rattrapante chronograph. A finely crafted sunburst pattern on the face plays gently with incident light, which also sparkles occasionally on the shiny surfaces of the hands and the applied hour indexes. The time usually remains clearly legible. Despite the diverse functions and the numerous scales, the time indication dominates the dial – especially at night, when the Super-LumiNova coating on the relevant components emits a green glow.
On the wrist, the 45mm is actually nice. I am not keen on wearing oversized watches, and to some 40mm is already oversized, but I felt quite comfortable with 45mm on my wrist. The watch is big, let there be no misunderstanding, but it wears a bit smaller than the specifications would make you think. The weight of the replica Breitling Navitimer rattrapante red gold watch is significant of course, and adds a bit of oompf to the watch when worn on the wrist.
In 1915 Breitling became the first brand to include an autonomous chronograph button at 2 o’clock. This world premiere was followed by another first in 1934, when a push-piece was added at 4 o’clock.
Most rattrapante chronographs are recognizable because they have an extra button, usually positioned at 10 o’clock, to trigger the split-seconds function. But Breitling opts for a different solution. Here the rattrapante button is integrated into the crown – another special feature of this Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante Caliber B03 timepiece replica.
You don’t be concerned that the function of the crown, because of the pressure point is positioned, the rattrapante button won’t be accidently pressed when the crown is pushed inward, for example, after adjusting the date display or the hands.
The modular rattrapante chronograph Caliber B03 is based on Breitling’s manufacture Caliber B01, which debuted in 2009. Breitling’s rattrapante mechanism, which needs only 28 components, is installed as a module on the dial side of the movement between the base plate and the date mechanism. This architecture not only simplifies fabrication and assembly, it also makes maintenance easier. The B03 accordingly enjoys all the advantages of the modern basic movement, e.g. column-wheel control, 70-hour power reserve, and chronometer-worthy rate quality, which it upholds both when fully wound and while the energy reservoir decreases.
Despite the screws that firmly join the back to the case, the Breitling Navitimer Rattrapante Caliber B03 timepiece replica resists pressure only to 30 meters, which is perhaps too little pressure resistance for a modern sports watch. But the opaque back is engraved with a temperature-conversion table, thus giving this timepiece an extra function that’s wholly independent of the chronograph.
