When Georges Kern was hired as CEO of Breitling, the timepieces of the brand had been changed a lot from the exterior to the interior, even the logo was redesigned, removing the iconic wings on the logo. The first new collection is Navitimer 8 when Kern took the office which is a series of vintage style, aiming to remind the watch lovers of the glorious times when Breitling fake watches with high performance were used as aeronautical instruments.
The new strategy that Kern makes is simplification. Now we will not see the combination of straps with clasps on the official website, and the quartz movement models have been directly suspended. The name of the new collection comes from the Huit Aviation department, in which Huit means eight in French. The new Breitling Navitimer knockoff watch with stainless steel case is a new starting for Breitling pilots watches. The classic flight slide rule has been canceled and the new rotatable bezel is simple and understated, also there’s no any scales on the bezel.
The simplification on the dial offers plenty space for hands, hour markers and sub-dials, offering optimum legibility. Although the new dial of the imitation watch with black leather strap looks common, in fact, it represents the original dial that Breitling Huit Aviation used ever. Featuring a 43 mm stainless steel case, the new Breitling looks gentler while the extraordinary Breitling-manufactured movement calibre B01 could be viewed through the transparent caseback.
