Best known for its chronographs – especially those for pilots – Breitling now ups the ante with the Premier Heritage Duograph Replica that just debuted alongside the new Premier Heritage chronographs.
The B15 in the new Duograph simplifies the construction of the split-seconds mechanism, resulting in a surprisingly affordable watch.
The first is a steel model that features a radially brushed blue dial with polished, applied Arabic numerals that give the watch a contemporary look. However, the Luxury Breitling Replica vintage inspiration is evident in the syringe hands, as well as a domed sapphire crystal that mimics the look of acrylic crystals found on vintage watches.
The Duograph can also be had in an 18k red gold case that features a black dial with gold numerals. Undoubtedly the more formal of the two, the gold Duograph brings to mind a 1950s chronograph with a “gilt” dial – not a bad look at all and perhaps an option for black-tie wristwatch, notwithstanding the 42 mm case.
Best Fake Breitling Watch inside the Duograph is the new B15 that’s manufactured entirely in-house by Breitling. It is essentially the B09 hand-wind chronograph movement combined with a split-seconds module that resides under the dial.
The B15 is also the manual-winding variant of the B03 automatic split-seconds, and boasts an above-average power reserve of 70 hours and is COSC-certified.
