Watches & Pencils #14 - Breitling 1806 a .k replica watches .a. Fried EggAfter the Baselworld storm and several other side projects calmed down, I stumbled upon a serious focus on this tasty episode. These times we focus on one of the largest and many bespoke replica watches in the flower-power seventies: Breitling 1806 Navitimer., a.k.a Fried Egg. To me it's more an enormous pan with two fried eggs: ColossalWith its 48mm in diameter this octagonal shaped watch was most likely the biggest a treadmill of the biggest replica watches Breitling stated in the seventies. It is just a very technical watch, with lots of measurement functions along with a slide rule bezel (more on that inside a sec). If we take a look at the dial, there won't be any less than three subsections/rings to separate your lives various timing functions aside from the bi-compax setup and regular hour/minute/date indicators. To indicate all of the functions and also be readability the dimensions creates a little more sense, yet it's still colossal. Height isn't that extreme by how: 16mm.MovementThe fried egg is powered by the legendary Calibre 11, and that is very recognizable by the unusual crown setup. While the pushers are placed on the right side, the crown is located for the left. It turned out the initial Navitimer by having an automatic chronograph movement. The automatic winding Chrono-matic movement is modular based: chronograph functions are combined with the 'base' from the movement rolex explorer reviews watches .Wristshot from the Breitling 1806 Navitimer Chrono-maticWho was basically?In the seventies Breitling was component of a consortium. As well as Heuer, Hamilton and Buren they created one of the first Swiss made automatic chronograph movements. However the Chrono-matic movement of Breitling did beat Zenith by a few days, Zenith still holds on to the fact that the Breitling-version was modular plus the true first integrated chronograph movement was created by Zenith (and so the name, El Primero breitling chrono watches , which suggests 'the first'). But, once we look beyond Swiss/European borders, both weren't the first ? While Zenith introduced their movement in January 1969 and also the consortium with Breitling a little later, Seiko was really the primary brand who introduced the primary automatic chronograph to the market (6139) in May of this year.The FaceAfter 1968, Breitling introduced a whole new the appearance of their Navitimer-range. Some want to call these first types 'Big Case' Navitimers (ref. 816 and 1806). Let's look briefly at the face on the 1806. The guts is made by basic information and branded from the 'old' logo with all the dual planes. The model data is somewhat oddly high located when compared to the available space between this element and the red colored date at 6. The date attracts your attention through the fat silver frame around the window. Evidently this window is white, the initial batch had windows with black numerals. Both your hands have become Spartan and plus the vivid orange it produces a practical yet sportive look. Externally the dial we find the white scale that is operated by the slide rule: the trademark for Navitimers. You are able to measure a great deal with this Breitling 1806, for example: gasoline consumption, miles each minute, ground speed, multiply, divide, rate of descent/climb, distance in descent/climb and nautical / statute mile conversion. A genuine handy tool for pilots in the past.Breitling 1806 for Iraqi Air ForceBesides the consumer-market this watch may be supplied to your air force. On account of all of the measurement functions and the gigantic size this watch' main objective would be to wear it as being a practical instrument. The Iraqi Air Force wore the 1806 in the seventies.I really hope you've enjoyed reading this episode and I'd wish to hear from you.
