UK luxury fake Breitling’s Chronomat UTC offers a brutally effective, if not especially subtle, solution to the demand for worldtimer watches: fit a completely separate mini, quartz-powered watch into the strap.
It helps that the cheap replica Breitling Chronomat is a hefty piece of kit to begin with—44mm by 14.45mm, so the extra bulk shouldn’t be an issue. The mechanical movement has 70 hours of power reserve, which is the length of time it continues to tick once you have removed the perfect copy Breitling Chronomat from your wrist. It’s also water-resistant up to 200 meters.
The best 1:1 fake Breitling “UTC” name references Coordinated Universal Time, or UTC, the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time and is not adjusted for daylight saving, making it effectively a successor to Greenwich Mean Time, or GMT, which is where worldtimers derive their alternative moniker from.
The AAA replica Breitling Chronomat was inspired by the Frecce Tricolori watch that Breitling created for the Italian Air Force’s aerobatic fleet back in 1983, and is very much an all-purpose sports super clone watch, which explains why the second time zone function was incorporated into the strap and not the watch itself.
