In April of 1946, one year after the end of the Second World War, the world’s first aerobatic team was established at the Naval Air Training Base in Jacksonville, Florida, USA. It was temporarily named as Lancers at the beginning. At that time, it was the only aerobatic team in the USA and each pilot was proud to be a member of the team.
After the performance, the captain Lieutenant Colonel Roy often took the pilots to a small bar called “Blue Sky” near the training base to celebrate the success of the flight show. Over time, they proposed to commemorate the flight show team with the name of the small bar they frequented came. By the end of 1946, the team was officially named Blue Angle. The sturdy copy Breitling had a close relationship with the aerobatic team. In 1996, it launched the Blue Angle special edition to commemorate the team, meanwhile, celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The 38 mm Breitling Navitimer replica watch is suitable for men who have thin wrists. The dial seems complex but preserves the elegance. The highlight of this timepiece is the distinctive color matching – blue and yellow, which is exactly the main tone of “Blue Angle”.
The integrated design of the blue leather strap knockoff watch has perfectly blended the blue and yellow elements. The case are made of yellow gold while the second hand and chronograph hands are designed in blue.
Many watch lovers couldn’t understand why Breitling has changed its logo and they consider that the new logo without the wings is not Breitling any more. Regardless of rightness or wrongness, today let us review the evolution procedure of the Breitling’s logo.
Although Breitling was founded in 1884, however, there wasn’t a logo of this brand for nearly half a century’s time. Only the printed “Breitling” was existed on the product samples. In the early of 1930s, the symbol of Montbrillant had ever appeared on the product book and rarely pocket watches. In 1930 to 1932, the luxury knockoff wristwatches became the main products of Breitling and the sliding cursive word of Breitling had been the common trademark of the brand.
In early 1950s, the sliding cursive “Breitling” was optimized to be a single “B” and Breitling set it on the top of “Breitling”, forming the formal trademark of the brand. See the watch Breitling fake watch with black dial, you will know it better.
The Navitimer was created in 1952 and some of the models had been engraved with the AOPA with the wings. This was the first time that the wings appeared on Breitling’s logo. In the middle of 1980s, Breitling adopted the logo with a anchor with wings and word of “Breitling” and soon 1884 was added to the logo. See the picture of Breitling Chronomat copy with brown leather strap.
However, the models released later adopted the logo of 1950s and Superocean used the old logo of Breitling too. Throughout the evolution history of Breitling’s logo, you will find that Breitling’s logs had always been mixed-used. The new logo has been created on base of the logo of 1950s, which could retain the brand’s history and achievement perfectly.
