Breitling, renowned for its diver’s watches, also boasts an impressive line of pilot watches. Among them, the Chronomat B01 stands out as a popular choice and has consistently been a sought-after model within the watch market. For those inclined towards a textured, all-stainless-steel timepiece, the Breitling Chronomat B01 proves to be an excellent selection. Today, I’m excited to present the Breitling Chronomat B01 AB0110, a watch that previously lacked satisfactory replicas but has now been meticulously recreated by G Factory, also known as GF. This latest iteration marks a significant improvement, with every detail refined compared to earlier editions produced by smaller factories.
The replica Breitling Chronomat B01 AB0110 adheres to a genuine 1:1 reference, reaching a level of precision where most components of this replica could seamlessly interchange with those of the authentic watch. The attention to detail in this top-quality replica Breitling from G Factory ensures a faithful representation of the original Chronomat B01 AB0110, making it a noteworthy addition to the market.
The case is 45mm in diameter, which is bigger than most big watches in current watch trend. It has a thickness of 16.5mm. With such a solid stainless steel case and bracelet, the first feeling this replica watch gives you is heavy, but I love this feeling. Do you want to buy a watch that has a light weight? I do not. The heavy texture makes rest assured. Whole case is polished, bezel is uni-directional rotating and has studs, the engravings on the bezel are deep and wide, which are in matt finished. The lume pearl at 12 o’clock on the bezel is full and round, it has the same lume color as the markers and hands on the dial.
Black dial seems to be a bit crowded, hour markers and hands have luminous material coated, Breitling Chronomat B01 AB0110 is a chrono watch, so there are three subdials, the subdial at 9:00 is for small seconds display, 30-minute chronograph counter is at 3 o’clock, the 12-hour chronograph counter is positioned at 6 o’clock. On the center of the dial, there is a big square with obvious vertical patterns, I do not like this patterned square on the dial. A black date window is set at 4:30, which features white font. On the crystal, there is a sticker, you can read “GF” and “SAPPHIRE” from it. Like genuine watch, the sapphire crystal on the replica also has AR coating.
Crafted from 316L stainless steel, the bracelet of the watch features a distinctive design with five section links arranged in an oblique pattern—a style commonly seen in many Breitling timepieces. Personally, this bracelet design holds a special place as my favorite. The meticulous polishing of the bracelet is executed by seasoned watch masters, each possessing over a decade of experience in their craft. Notably, the edges of the bracelet are polished to such a degree of smoothness that wearing the watch is a seamless experience, devoid of any noticeable scratches. A noticeable contrast emerges when comparing the superior polishing of this watch’s bracelet with those of lower-priced replica watches, underscoring the craftsmanship and attention to detail that sets this timepiece apart.
This replica timepiece is equipped with an authentic chronograph movement, specifically a cloned ETA 7750—a movement rooted in the Shanghai 7750 chronograph. Activating the chronograph function is as straightforward as pressing the button at 2 o’clock, causing the central second chronograph hand to initiate its motion. Subsequent presses of the same button halt the chronograph function, while resetting the chronograph involves pressing the button located at 4 o’clock. In essence, this replica encompasses all the functions present in the genuine watch.
