Swiss replica Breitling UK has worked with other airlines too, including Singapore Airlines and Swiss Air, as part of the 70th year celebration of the Navitimer, but Soon says of the cheap fake Breitling Navitimer B01 Cathay Pacific Limited Edition: “To me, this is for sure one of the most unique Navitimer I’ve seen in a long time.”
The perfect fake Breitling Navitimer made its debut in 1952, and quickly became a favourite amongst aviators and trendsetters alike. The Navitimer incorporated the analogue slide rule on the periphery of its dial, which allowed pilots to calculate their airspeed, rate of climb and descent, distance and so on. Alongside the notched bezel for easy grip, baton indexes and chronograph counters, the cheap copy Breitling Navitimer easily became the de facto pilots’ watch. In the early days of civil aviation, the original Navitimer even bore the logo of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). These days, the winged logo is still just as recognisably top super clone Breitling as its more modern replacement, the letter B in a vintage-style cursive script.
Since last year, Cathay dropped Pacific from its master branding to focus on building itself up as a premium lifestyle brand. Paul Smitton, Director of Lifestyle at Cathay Pacific Airways, who’s in charge of the company’s travel lifestyle initiatives, says that with Swiss made replica Breitling celebrating its 70th year with the Navitimer, and Cathay celebrating its 75th year, it was a timely and authentic partnership. “AAA fake Breitling has such a great aviation heritage and it was really lovely to collaborate using our iconic jade on the watch,” he says. “The jade is a really strong branding for us, as well as the brushstroke logo. People tend to immediately associate that brush logo with Cathay, it’s a lovely kind of representation of flying and sort of a Chinese painting style.”
The Cathay logo is placed discreetly on the caseback of the 43mm steel Breitling Navitimer B01 replica for sale, alongside the engraved words “Cathay Pacific Edition” and its individual number out of 200. Visible from the transparent caseback is the COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01.
The special co-branded timepiece, expressing both companies’ love of aviation and travel, is available for pre-order at the Cathay shop and selected best quality fake Breitling boutiques in Hong Kong.
