This would not be an impartial review of an old-fashioned watch – away from it. I own and love this 1960s chronometer from Breitling replica watches. I would like to explain here what made me see a watch with a 41mm watch, which I used to swear more modest size for my personal watch. Like all good love stories, it has no plans: I found the century-old spirit in a small French city and couldn’t look forward. After a few months, I wore it for seven days, and I could see it again and again.
Let’s start with the obvious: Breitling reference 765 AVI is not a small watch. With a diameter of 41mm, its case is much bigger than other watches in the 1960s, even with pilots and drivers. For comparison, contemporary rolex daytona 36-37 mm, while AVI’s competitor, breguet 20, stands 38 mm. And, yes, the shadow of type 20 is unavoidable in this story. The similarities between Breitling and 20 are not accidental. Cheap Breitling swiss replica watches hope very much when the AVI was introduced for the first time in 1953 to win the contract with the French army, but the lack of the flyback Auricoste of complex functions, Breguet, Dodane Vixa and opened the door, the latter will provide service for the French soldiers and timing clock.
However, AVI’s less glorious fate did not stop me. On the other hand. There is something poetic about believing in the loser and realizing how great it is. My Breitling AVI is not the first product in this series. As with many Breitling Chronos, the original configuration of 765 AVI also has a black subregister. It even has an odd feature that you don’t see in many of the other watches: the minute-by-minute digital readout that you usually see here. It later adopted a more standard layout, and there are two timer child register (one for the number of seconds), eventually won the many other Swiss Breitling replica watches timing clock on the silver surface, from Navitimer to Top Time.
The Breitling’s utility has jumped, not just in oversized sizes. The glossy black dial is impressively readable, and the three-point quantum dial clearly shows the focus. It is worth noting that the 15-minute counter of the chronometer needs to modify the standard Venus 178, which is usually set to 30 minutes. Why go through this mechanical failure? This is where smart replica watches roots are obvious, because 15 minutes is the exact time before a flight is checked to clear it during take-off. This also explains the unique lume dash every three minutes in the subregister, making it as easy as possible for pilots and technicians to get involved.
