Speaking of grail watches, what are all of yours? . Hodinkee in Announcements, Chronograph, Modern Classics, Omega, Speedmaster Saturday, replica Breitling K243 Men's watch October 10, 2009 at 3:52PM Breitling is best known for some knock-out sport watches, the types that true professionals wear.Remember, their Cosmonaut was worn by Scott Carpenter into space back in 1962 and even today, the legendary P-51 Horsemen wear a Breitling Aerospace.A chronograph, and maybe a moon-phase is typically as complicated as Breitlings get.This makes sense because these watches are instruments, not status symbols.
Yes, manufacturer, not just assembler nor just a A Lange & Sohne 101.032 Men's Watch designer like so many other brands, Armin Strom will soon be a full-fledged manufacturer.We'll get to that soon.The company is split into two different brands, Armin Strom and ARMIN by Armin Strom.The first, bearing the name of the master skeletonizer, focuses on that very feat.Each movement is hand skeletonized by the company's team of expertly trained watch-makers.In fact, there is a truly amazing video of how one of these watches is deconstructed, modified, skeletonized, and reconstructed on their home page, absolutely worth a look.
Today however, we've found a rare bird indeed; a replica Breitling Windrider Chronomat Evolution watch Breitling Navitimer with a perpetual calendar.The Breitling Navitimer 1952 Quantieme Perpetuel was only made in a series of 100 pieces.It is composed of over 500 unique parts (including 13 hands and pointers!) and indicates day, date, week, month.seasons, leap years and moon phases.It is made of rose gold and is one of the very few complicated Breitlings ever made.The one we have found today is #8 of 100.The one we have found today is being sold by a friend of ours (Matthew Bain Inc.) via eBay.
