The obvious UK fake Breitling choice for this list would be the Navitimer, of course. While I greatly appreciate the Navitimer, it would not actually be my first vintage Swiss replica Breitling pick. It would actually be the stunning cheap fake Breitling Top Time ref. 810, released in 1964. It was also my pick in the article about the best Breitling copy watches from the 1960s. But what the Navitimer ref. 806 and the Top Time ref. 810 from that era share is the legendary hand-wound Venus 178 column-wheel chronograph movement.
This movement is well-loved and respected by vintage Breitling replica for men collectors. It also powered the Navitimer, the AVI ref. 765 and the Premier ref. 765 amongst many other best quality fake Breitling models. For me, the perfect copy Breitling Top Time ref. 810 is almost archetypical for how a chronograph should be designed. So this pick is as much about the movement as it is about the design.
The top Swiss replica Breitling’s 38mm size is perfect, and the dial design is one of the best out there to this day. Every element falls into place, there is not too much text, and the reverse panda configuration certainly looks the part. But my favorite detail is the 21mm lug width. On a nice leather strap, it simply looks amazing. As Mike explained in his in-depth article about the Top Time ref. 810, luxury 1:1 fake Breitling produced Mark 1 and Mark 2 models of the ref. 810. Breitling replica for sale introduced the Mark 2 in 1967, featuring a different case that was slightly bigger and flatter. The biggest change, however, was the loss of its characteristic chamfered lugs, and a reduction of its lug width to 19mm. Prices can vary, starting at €4K and ranging up to €5K for AAA quality replica watches in good condition. Not a big price for one of the best-looking chronographs ever produced.
