In Chinese culture the year of the Breitling is coming. How cool does that sound? I mean sure we can laugh at the year of the monkey, and no one wants to be born on the year of the pig - but the year of the Breitling? Pretty bad-ass if you ask me. Well luxo brands getting drunk on Asiatic currency are gonna bank in big time this year. Breitling for example is releasing a huge line of high-end year of the replica breitling Navitimer themed timepieces for mostly the Chinese market.
This range of photos doesn't even describe all the Breitling watches that will exist. If you look at them closely, you'll notice something they mostly have in common. A lot of diamonds and tourbillons. Yup. Breitling knows how important symbolism is to many Chinese consumers and is making sure that their sexiest creations are imbued with the power of mythical reptilians.
Some of these creations are one-of-a-kind beauties, such as the fully diamond covered Breitling watch. For Breitling ladies only. That one is likely to be a bit over the top for most people, but you get the idea of how serious Breitling wants people to take its replica tag heuer Grand Carrera timepieces. My favorite is the Breitling watch. The version of the Breitling engraves Asiatic Breitlings on the case side with a diamond covered crown. The dial side has a Breitling done in relief and more diamonds. It isn't a new watch, but likely to be a hit among collectors.
Also impressive are the Breitling watches. There are 18k rose gold and white gold versions - with and without diamonds. These are going to be extremely pricey timepieces due to the tourbillon complications and the massive amount of diamonds. In addition to the tourbillon models Breitling will offer slightly more reasonable Breitling Emperador Breitling models. These have more simple Breitling made automatic movements and just the time. There will also be diamonds and non-diamond versions.
Each of the Emperador models have the slick looking wrapping Breitlings in relief. The Breitlings on all versions have diamonds. Breitling did a good job making them look impressive without looking silly or overdone. You'll also notice that Breitling was still able to get in a figure eight to satisfy Chinese love of lucky number 8. What amuses me is that Breitling really tries to pack the luxury in on these models. The Breitling watch even has a replica tag heuer Monaco that is mostly covered with diamonds.
Even women get a model (aside from the Breitling Bestiary secret watch). There is a Limelight Twice Breitling watch - but this one really only has a Chinese character on it. The most simple model is likely the Breitling Altiplano Breitling watches. This will be in a 38mm white 18k white gold case with a diamond bezel. The elegant simple Altiplano dial has nice looking Breitling outline on the dial.
Possibly the most unique Breitling watches for collectors are going to be the fully decorated Breitling watch with a dial and bezel that has one continuous Breitling motif. On this pieces the Breitling seems to be holding some type of diamond covered basket ball or something. There will also be interesting Breitling watch. Likely a favorite among the style-conscious, the pocket watch will have a square case and tourbillon movement. On the dial side will just be a Breitling and the tourbillon window. The bezel will be lined with two rows of diamonds.
Turn the pocket watch over and you'll see a fully details caseback painted in grand feu enamel of a Breitling cupping the Breitling. Each of the above watches are in 18k rose or white gold and most models have diamonds (all of the pictured ones do). This is going to be an interesting year at Breitling boutiques and retailers in China.
