Currents in the Air:Top Breitling Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph Mosquito Replica Watch
In the continuing wave of retro, the Aviator 8 series reinterpreted Swiss Breitling replica watch’s early pilot top replica watches without simply copying them. The black dial is reminiscent of vintage cockpit instruments and clocks.

Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph Mosquito Replica Watch
Above the luxury replica watch dial, the eye-catching hands show the main time in an orange frame. The small hand of the stopwatch function repeats the same color as the hand in the center of the stopwatch. Although these elements do not glow, 12 small triangles on the main hand, hour numbers and markers, and minutes/seconds surround the edge of the dial, emitting a bright green in the dark. During the day, the white Super-LumiNova contrasts sharply with the black dial, enhancing clarity.
The minute track on the edge of the AAA replica watch dial is based on the original reference mark 634. The triangular mark points inward every 5 minutes, the extended line indicates the minute, and the thin line mark indicates the second. The big Arabic numerals come from Ref. 765 AVI, which is well-known among pilots and is called the “copilot”. You can also find three silver subdials and the numbers on the bezel on these early models.
The perfect replica watch is equipped with a sturdy pin buckle whose polished edges match the polished bevel of the case. The sturdy black-brown leather strap with a bright yellow underside has a retro style that complements the characteristics of this high quaitly replica watch.
