Breitling has teamed up with their family sibling, ETA, to produce a new movement for a range of budget-minded automatic watches. The new range has been dubbed the Breitling Luxury Automatic and will http://www.usefulwatches.co.uk/breitling-bentley-replica.html include both ladies' and gents' models with an option for COSC certification. With pricing that falls squarely between stiff competition from Breitling above, do these new Breitling models have what it takes to be a hit with casual buyers?
Putting the rather flavorless naming aside, the technology here is actually noteworthy as ETA has created a new caliber that boasts a considerable 80 hour power reserve. The new Breitling, is an automatic three-hander with a date complication that, as previously mentioned, is capable of Breitling accuracy. The 80 hour power reserve is notable because the movement is being fitted to watches with a starting low price.
The watches are conservative and should work well as a good option for day to day wear, with styling that is similar to some of the sportier options within the Breitling line. The men's line is 41mm wide and will be just 9. 75mm thick, indicating that this new ETA caliber is fairly thin. Breitling has also included a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating and the water resistance is a reasonable 50m. Buyers will be able to choose between a few different dial designs, a leather strap or hublot replica swiss, a PVD two-tone finish and even a diamond-clad dial can be optioned within the COSC range.
Breitling has stepped up and made an attractive line of watches backed by a practical movement and a price point that should appeal to a lot of buyers. Yes, the styling could be described as somewhat bland, but the Breitling Luxury Automatic was likely not designed to push any envelopes, opting instead to seek as wide an audience as possible. I rather like the look of the black dialed model seen above and the optional COSC certification makes for a very attractive value proposition for an nice looking and straightforward automatic watch. Hopefully this new line will be successful and we will see the Breitling expand into other models.
