Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, we explore one of the most unique replica watches ever made.It’s a family that consistently references Breitlings rich aviation legacy, however, unlike most Breitlings, the Transocean celebrates civilian flight, rather than military.There are few watches that live up to their marketing hype, and even fewer that can claim to have genuinely saved lives. Breitling has long been considered the pilot’s cheap replica watch of choice
The Breitling Transocean Chronograph Edition (we’re calling it the TOC for short) continues this inspiration from the past. The TOC is inspired by a 1958 chronograph – we doubt either a Top Time or a Premier model. And if you’re looking for one piece to wear all the time AND keep for many years, look no further. The TOC is a two-register chronograph with a sweet two tone cream dial, with applied gold indices and a date at 6. But more than that, it’s nice and heavy, it looks and feels extremely solid, and you can’t ask more of the rose gold finished stainless steel case.In comparison to my other watches, it is light and sits flatly around the wrist which makes me extremely comfortable to put on.
Breitling have added a lovely touch on the rear of the watch – Replica Breitling manufacture Caliber 01 movement is hidden behind an official style case back, the sapphire display case back has a protective cover made of steel . It’s a nice touch, particularly if you’re the sort of person to engrave a personal message on the inside of the case back.
The Transocean Chronograph Edition is a limited edition with merely 2,000 pieces, which might provoked a wave of buying it around the whole world.
