Most people that wear pilot’s replica watches for sale today don’t fly planes. And actual modern pilots don’t rely on pilot’s copy watches. But none of that matters, because it’s what these once critical tools represent that makes them so compelling.
Perhaps even more than dive watches, pilot’s fake watches online conjure adventure — whether it’s the dangerous experiments of early aviators, the dangerous jobs of military pilots or even the dazzlingly technical cockpits of commercial airlines. They can evoke the sense of wonder the general public had toward flight in the 20th century (before air travel became the mundane necessity of moving cramped human cargo that it mostly is today).
Whereas some pilot’s watches focus on minimalism for legibility, cheap fake Breitling Navitimer is the complete opposite — that’s how vastly different pilot’s watches can be. The 1:1 replica Breitling Navitimer has a look like nothing else, with a face so crowded with scales and dials that it seems to reflect the dizzying array of controls in a cockpit.
There’s a chronograph with its subdials as well as a tachymeter and even a slide rule bezel which can be used for a number of different calculations. Unlike many other aaa quality replica Breitling watches on this list, it wasn’t made for the military and was rather developed for the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association in the 1950s.
