   The new watch has a stainless steel case with a diameter of 40.9 mm and a thickness of 13.43 mm. It is equipped with the same thin bezel and faceted lugs as the original model. In addition, 94 ‘beads’ are also pendant on the edge of the bezel. The overall aesthetic characteristics remain the same, while providing a practical water resistance of 30 meters.

   The dial is black and shiny, decorated with ivory Super-Luminova hands and Arabic numerals. The flying wing emblem below the 12 o’clock position is actually the logo of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), but the internal ‘AOPA’ word is discarded.

   Above the dial is a curved plexiglass mirror, the same as the original model. It is worth mentioning that modern models generally use sapphire crystal mirrors.

   The replica watch has a major upgrade: the built-in Breitling CaliberB09 manual winding movement. This is a modern chronograph movement, which is an improvement from Breitling’s self-made Caliber01 automatic winding movement. It is equipped with a column wheel and a vertical clutch device. It can provide 70 hours of power reserve and is certified by the COSC Observatory. In contrast, the original 1959 Ref.806 chronograph with Venus 178 movement. In the future, CaliberB09 movement ‘will provide power for more historical manual winding watches.’

   It is reported that the Breitling Aviation Chronograph Ref.8061959 replica watch is limited to 1,959 pieces and will be available for sale in June 2019. The pre-tax price is USD 8,600, equivalent to approximately RMB 58,000. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
