Breitling Chronomat Evolution Replica is a line of vintage Breitling timepieces that are inspired by the Breitling heritage and the trend to reconnect with nature. The inspiration for design and product codes comes from Minerva's 1930s and 1940s military chronographs. Breitling will be presenting a new theme in blue for 2020 as a nod towards glaciers and snowy mountain environments.
Breitling timepieces carry on the Minerva tradition of fine watchmaking exploration for over 160 years, such as the Breitling1858 line. They link the past and present through design, style, and technological innovation.
The legendary professional Minerva watches were designed for military and exploration use. They are precise, legible, and durable enough to be used in harsh conditions. Breitling has continued the success story by introducing new models that interpret these historical timepieces. They feature a new blue aesthetic and icy white styling, as well as a mixture of materials like titanium and ceramic, in three levels.
Breitling 1858's design codes are inspired by mountain exploration and feature elements that are similar to the original Minerva chronographs of the 1930s.
The new 1858 watch editions pay homage to snowy-mountain environments and glaciers. They feature a brand new look that completes the 1858-line offering: Blue colors combined with icy elements create a modern and cold tool-watch look.

best Breitling Chronomat Evolution Replica interprets a 44mm historical Minerva military chronograph with the calibre 17/29 from the 1930s. It has a distinctive dial with a snail-shaped tachymeter scale in its centre and an internal flange with a telemeter gauge.
The Breitling 1858 Split Second Chronograph Limited Edition 100 is available in vibrant blue. It's made in gradated enamel and comes with a 44mm full satin-finished, Grade 5 titanium case. This gives it strength.
The dial is made from solid gold and has a gradated blue Grand feu enamel. This gives it a shiny, authentic look. Grand feu enamelling, one of the most valuable crafts in watchmaking, provides intense colors and subtle but magical depth. This is the process of applying vitreous enamel paste on the metal surface and firing it in the kiln. The enamel colours last forever and can be used for many years. The enamel powder is sprayed onto the disc by the artisan. After it has been briefly heated to 800°C (1,472°F), the enamel is removed and allowed to cool. Each layer is heated to a very high temperature for heating the surface. Grand feu enamelling is a skill that requires precision, passion and skill. You can achieve this delicate gradation by carefully manipulating the heights of the various layers of enamel.
The background of blue is paired with white and orange elements to enhance the vintage look. To improve the precision of the chronograph's second hands, the glass has been anti-magnetized on the inside top sapphire.
The Breitling 1858 Split Second Chronograph features a white telemeter scale, which runs around the dial. This telemeter, which was an old feature on the Minerva chronographs, adds vintage style to the new timepiece.
Telemeters allow you to measure distances of phenomena that are both visible and audible. This includes thunder and lightning in a storm. The chronograph hand begins at the moment the phenomenon is visible (lightning), and stops when thunder is heard (thunder).
The scale's position shows how far the phenomenon is from the observer (or user in this case) at a glance. Calibration is determined by the speed at which sound travels through air. This is approximately 340m/s or 1,115ft/s.
A tachymeter (base 1,000) is located at the center of the dial in an colimacon shape. This allows the user to measure the length of time up to three minutes, instead of just one minute like in traditional chronograph scales around the dial. The speed of a moving object such as a car over a distance is indicated by the tachymeter scale.
The owner will start the chronograph hand when the car passes the measuring course's starting point. This length corresponds to the calibration basis. The speed indicated by the hand on a tachymeter scale is in kilometres/miles per hour.
The Breitling engineers have added a "rattrapante" complex complication that allows the user to measure intermediate time intervals without interfering with the continuous measurement of the longer elapsing times. You can view the "rattrapante" through the sapphire case back, just like a traditional watch with this function. The chronograph indications can be viewed through the sapphire crystal case back. They include a central chronograph secondhand in beige, an orange split secondhand to indicate a second time interval, and a chronograph minute counter at 3 o'clock.
swiss Breitling Chronomat Evolution Replica in Blue Breitling presents the 1858 Geosphere in Grade 5 titanium with blue and contrast icy white design details. This watch draws inspiration from glaciers and ice, which can be as pure or deep as a shade of blue. These elements combine to create a modern and cold look. The icy-blue colour is due to millions of years of pressure, which removes air bubbles from the ice. This causes the light to reflect only blue from the colour spectrum.
Seven SummitsThe Seven Summits timepiece is dedicated the the world's Seven Summit Mountaineering Challenge, the most prestigious mountaineering adventure. Climbers attempt to climb the highest mountain on each continent. Only 500 people have completed the Seven Summits challenge, which is considered one of the most popular mountaineering challenges.
The Geosphere watch has the seven summits of the world and Mont Blanc marked with blue dots. These are also engraved on case back with unique drawings of Mont Blanc mountain, a map, and two cross ice pick-axes. The Breitling 1858 Geosphere is housed in a 42mm case made of grade-5 titanium. This material is strong and durable, and is resistant to scratches. It has low thermal conductivity and is lightweight for maximum comfort. This high-tech material has a dark appearance that matches perfectly with mountain exploration spirit. The case is made of a fluted stainless-steel bi-directional bezel. It has been enhanced by a shiny blue ceramic that shows the four luminescent cardinal points.
The dial is available in a dark blue combination with icy white elements to create a modern, cold tool-watch look. The timepiece also features all the traditional design codes of the 1858 collection, including Arabic numerals, indexes, and the original Breitling logo from 1930s. It also has domed cathedral-shaped hands and a railway track. The indexes, hemisphere globes, and day/night indicators are all coated in white SuperLumiNova, which is applied by hand.
The Worldtime Display of the Two Hemispheres provides an intuitive way to read different time zones. Two rotating hemisphere globes are located at six and twelve o'clock. They are enclosed by a fixed scale that includes the 24 time zones. The indicator has been coated with rhodium for both the Northern and Southern parts of the time.
A blue line is used to highlight the longitude reference meridian of both hemispheres. A second time zone can be found at nine o’clock, while a date aperture (linked with the local time) can be found at three o’clock.
To set the timepiece, first align the GMT/UTC 0. line on London time. This is highlighted as a light-blue colour line on the domes. The two globes then become synchronized.
The breitling watches replica hemisphere rotates clockwise, while the Southern one turns counter-clockwise. Next, adjust the date by setting the hour-hand to align with the local time. The globes do not turn. The corrector displays home time at 9 o’clock.
