Breitling has enriched its professional collection with a new set of Endurance Pro quartz chronographs, made of ultra-light Breitlight®. The Endurance Pro is made from Breitling, which was introduced in 2016. It’s 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than stainless steel, which makes it ideal for sporting applications, but it’s also interesting from a material science perspective. It’s hypoallergenic, lightly textured, and Breitling reports that it “feels warmer to the touch than metal.” While the case is black, the watch comes in five colorways: white, blue, yellow, orange, and red. It comes with a colored rubber strap, but a matching Outerknown ECONYL NATO strap can be purchased from Breitling. Let’s take a look the Breitling Endurance Pro 44mm watch replica X82310A71B1S1.
The bold numerals, especially the 3-6-9 indices, fill the blank spaces of the dial while also biting chunks out of the chronograph sub-dials. Occupying the area at 12 o’clock is the winged logo that thankfully is embossed rather than printed as it was on the Colt Skyracer. Adding the date at 4:30 is a sore spot, but, overall, I am pleased with the depth and balance the dial brings along with the compass-scale bidirectional bezel.
This particular version of the Breitling Endurance Pro replica is the white and black reference X82310A71B1S1. To add to the Star Warsy-ness of it, when the chronograph is operating, I imagine that the chronograph hands are dueling red lightsabers. Speaking of the dial, Breitling keeps even its entry-level watch looking sharp with attractively finished surfaces and applied elements like some of the hour markers. Some purists will probably not forgive Breitling for having the chronograph subdials cut off the hour markers so much.
44 mm Case
Under 65 grams on the wrist, the Endurance Pro replica is, indeed, a lightweight watch — and it isn’t that small, either. Wearing it is great since it is so light and comfortable. The case is about 44mm-wide and 14mm-thick with a 53mm lug-to-lug distance. The case is water-resistant to 100 meters, and over the dial is a flat AR-coated sapphire crystal. Around the bezel is a bi-directional rotating navigation bezel. These look cool, but I would have preferred a 60-minute scale on the smooth-to-the-touch rotating black carbon bezel.
The Breitling-branded rubber strap that comes with the Breitling Endurance Pro replica is of typical high Breitling strap quality and is given a buckle with two holes for the strap excess, which makes it wear better on the wrist. The strap buckle is also made out of the same carbon Breitlight material as the case, which is a nice touch.
Caliber 82 Movement
The Breitling Endurance Pro replica design formula is also dead simple. Breitling first decided to once again make use of its Breitlight material (carbon), and focus on a quartz movement. Note that while $3,000 is high for a normal Swiss Made quartz movement, the Endurance Pro does not contain a normal Swiss movement. Inside the watch is the Breitling caliber 82, which is sourced from ETA and modified to be thermo-compensated to handle temperature variations and regulate ten times more accurately than standard quartz. This time, date, and complex chronograph movement has a quartz crystal regulation system with a sensor that measures temperatures. Changes in temperature negatively affect the ability of these already accurate movements to operate at peak levels. Able to compensate for changes in temperature normally experienced by watch movements worn on the wrist, the caliber 82 movement is accurate to around 10 seconds per year. That is compared to accuracy of about 10 seconds per month for standard quartz movements.
You’ll see the “Chronometer” label on the dial. This is also a true COSC Chronometer watch. Note that Swiss COSC has a different performance test for quartz versus mechanical watches. The test is predictable much more stringent for quartz mechanisms. Once you understand how the time and effort that went into this movement is akin to that of a traditional mechanical watch, you not only better understand the value proposition, but you also appreciate how this can truly be a professional’s watch.
