Super AVI replica is a brand-new series of Breitling watches launched to commemorate the history of aviation. With models including the Breitling Super AVI Tribute to Vought F4U Corsair replica, the Breitling Super AVI Curtiss Warhawk replica, the replica Breitling Super AVI Mosquito, and two variants of the replica Breitling Super AVI P-51 Mustang, this new collection signals a new beginning for one of the brand’s most storied chronograph lines.
The Breitling Super AVI 46mm replica watch collection comes in five unique versions honoring four powerful and memorable aircraft, whose filigree silhouettes adorn the watches’ sapphire case backs. Its design is inspired by the original “Co-Pilot” Ref. 765 AVI pilot watch replica in 1953 and four legendary fighters: North American Aviation P-51 Mustang, Vought F4U Corsair, Curtiss P-40 Warhawk and De Havilland Mosquito.
Super AVI P-51 Mustang Replica
The Super AVI P-51 Mustang Replica pays homage to the best all-around fighter plane of its era in two distinct versions: a stainless-steel case with a black dial and gold-brown leather strap, and an 18 k red gold version with an anthracite dial and a black leather strap.
The Breitling Super AVI P-51 Mustang Replica feels by far the most authentically vintage of the bunch, with a simple matte black main dial surface and a mix of bold printed Arabic numerals and triangular indices in warm sandy fauxtina lume. In typical Breitling fashion, it’s the fine details that give this layout a distinct character from similar designs. Elements from the sharply tapering ends of the polished sword hands, to the slickly integrated 6 o’clock date window, to the interplay of textures between the azurage surface of the 3 o’clock chronograph minutes subdial and its signature five-minute lume plots give an impressive sense of intricacy and polish. Breitling’s integration of a GMT complication to this already busy dial is surprisingly streamlined, with only a narrow 24-hour rehaut and a slim orange spear-tipped GMT hand to belie its presence.
The red gold version of the Breitling Super AVI P-51 Mustang replica gives this layout a more contemporary and upscale treatment, with a vertically brushed anthracite gray main dial to subtly contrast the black subdials. The polished red gold handset and bright white lume of this variant also reframe the design for a more luxe look, taking away some of the base design’s tool-watch edge.
Super AVI Tribute to Vought F4U Corsair Replica
It may be the replica Breitling Super AVI Tribute to Vought F4U Corsair that offers the most balanced approach of the series, with a blue dial, tone-on-tone chronograph counters, and a black leather strap that take their design cues from the characteristic livery of the record-breaking naval aircraft. This cooler colorway also allows the orange GMT hand to pop dramatically against its backdrop for easy legibility.
Breitling Super AVI Curtiss Warhawk Replica
The Breitling Super AVI Curtiss Warhawk replica watch delivers the most on-trend look of the series, combining its vibrant white subdials and lume fill with a matte olive drab base dial for a military-inspired riff on the “reverse panda” look. This version also receives an extra jolt of color with red lume plots on the 3 o’clock subdial, subtly referencing the “shark mouth” nose art made iconic by the P-40 Warhawk. Although this visual highlight gives the model some added character, the difference between the red of the subdial and the orange GMT hand is just enough to add a sense of visual dissonance.
Breitling Super AVI Mosquito Replica
The Super AVI Mosquito replica features a combination polished and satin-brushed black ceramic bezel and a black dial with white contrasting chronograph counters. Its red and orange elements recall the roundels and markings found on the versatile plane, dubbed the “Wooden Wonder”. To this end, the true “reverse panda” mix of deep black main dial and silvery-white subdials gives this model a high-contrast punch, while added white elements like the outer rehaut break up the dial visually and give a greater sense of complexity. By far the most striking element here, however, is the handset. Rather than just the GMT hand, every hand on the dial except for the running seconds and chronograph hours subdials is tipped in blazing signal orange. Coupled with the orange lume pips on the 3 o’clock subdial, this use of bright high-impact color is visually arresting, but still small enough to avoid feeling overwhelming.
Despite the ’50s-inspired design language, the cases of the Breitling Super AVI replica series measure in at a beefy modern 46mm-wide with a sizeable 15.9mm overall thickness. Rendered in stainless steel (with the exception of the Breitling Super AVI P-51 Mustang replica’s 18k red-gold variant), the overall form of the case is clean and timeless, with strong chamfered lugs, flat case sides, piston pushers, and a narrow coin edge 12-hour bezel. Breitling’s use of finishing here sets the Super AVI line apart from its rivals, with a fully polished finish when viewed from above for a bright vintage look. These polished surfaces are contrasted with aggressive brushing along the case sides, helping to break up the visual profile and giving this military-inflected design a more refined character.
The replica Super AVI Mosquito’s use of a gloss black ceramic bezel insert rather than the polished metal used for the rest of the line immediately gives this model a more updated character, calling to mind Breitling’s late ‘60s pilot chronograph designs more than the original Ref. 765 AVI. With that said, this different perspective harmonizes well with the base design.
Breitling powers all five variants of the Super AVI replica series with its in-house B04 automatic GMT chronograph movement. Equipped with both a column wheel and a vertical clutch chronograph actuation system, the B04 is relatively basic with its decoration with Côtes de Genève across the bridges and a signed rotor. The B04’s performance is anything but basic, however, with a COSC chronometer certification for accuracy and a hefty 70-hour power reserve at a 28,800 bph beat rate.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern (Georges Kern) said: “This series of watches embodies a nostalgia for the early aviation era, when pilots relied on watches as airborne tools. But even if you are not a pilot or a vintage aircraft Lovers can also appreciate its extraordinary craftsmanship and robust design.”
The Breitling Super AVI replica collection is available now through authorized dealers at an MSRP of $10,100 each for the Super AVI P-51 Mustang in stainless steel, the replica Super AVI Tribute to Vought F4U Corsair, and the replica Super AVI Curtiss Warhawk. The replica Breitling Super AVI Mosquito is instead priced at $10,250. The 18K red gold Breitling Super AVI P-51 Mustang is priced on this piece are likely to fall in the $25,000 to $30,000 range.
