Difference between the Replica Breitling Stainless Steel

As we all know that Breitling never stops refining and improving their products, some of the areas in which we have seen the significant progress are the new materials that are being applied for use in their watches.
Then contemporary Breitling replica watches utilize some of the most advanced materials on this planet to aid in the company’s ongoing pursuit of building the best mechanical wristwatches possible from scratch-proof ceramic bezels to ferromagnetic alloy movement components. However, despite all of these particular, proprietary machines and materials that get used at the fake Breitling factory in Geneva, one of the most interesting aspects of the Rolex production process are the type of stainless steel that is used for the cases and bracelets of their watches.
Most timepieces use 316L stainless steel, which is more than adequate for the huge majority of applications and environments one is likely to encounter in everyday life. However, Breitling makes up his mind to use a unique blend of 904L stainless steel for their watches, known as “Oystersteel” that is highly resistant to a number of different forms of corrosion.  
Most commonly used in the aerospace and chemical industries, 904L is hard to shape and often needs the use of specialized equipment to properly cut and machine. Even though it is more expensive and difficult to use, 904L can take on a higher polish than traditional stainless steel alloys and possess a number of anti-corrosive properties that are somewhat similar to those of precious metals.
Breitling’s use of 904L stainless steel dates all the way back to 1985, when they became the first wristwatch manufacturer to use it on a large scale in their timepieces. Initially, during the late 1980s, 904L stainless steel was only used for the Rolex Sea-Dweller line of deep-sea diving watches; however in 2003, the replica Rolex switched all of their lines of watches over to 904L stainless steel, due to the superior corrosion resistance that it offered.
More traditional forms of stainless steel, such as 316L are quite corrosion resistant; however small amounts of saltwater and other minerals can get trapped in the tiny spaces between the case-back threads, and over an extended period of time, can act as a catalyst for corrosion. The replica Breitling found that stainless steel watches exhibited more premature wear on their case-back threads than what was observed on their precious metal counterparts, and so the decision was made to switch to 904L stainless steel for all of their lines of watches.
Although “Oystersteel” is possibly just another name for the 904L stainless steel manufactured by Breitling in-house foundry, it is undeniable that 904L stainless steel offers additional benefits over most traditionally used stainless steel varieties.

The Breitling Chronomat Colt Automatic 41

The replica Breitling recently stated an update to their Chronomat Colt range in step with their ongoing brand refresh, which gives a new appearance in both 44mm and 41mm sizes. While the 41mm diameter is not new to the Colt line, it does represent something of a sweet spot in terms of sport watch size and the fake Breitling has included some new dial colors in this low-key.
Typically featured by a chunky steel bezel with the Breitling’s signature “rider tabs” for added grip, the Chronomat line has traditionally housed a wide and varying array of replica watches that all loosely fall into the “all purpose” category. Tough, burly, and often huge, the Breitling has seen fit to continue the Chronomat’s placement within their lineup, distinct from their newly defined Air/Water/Earth organization scheme. The Colt has traditionally been one of the entry-level models from the Breitling replica  and it has always blended a kind of military appeal with the basic philosophy of a dive watch. 
However, the format stays the same status, with a 41mm steel case sporting a wide steel bezel, chunky lugs, and the choice of either the Pilot steel bracelet or a black leather strap. The design is nicely utilitarian, with a simple, legible, and balanced dial, with long hands, and a pop of red on the arrowhead tip of the seconds-hand. Just as sport-ready as it looks, the Colt has an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, screw down crown, a solid steel case-back, and 200 meters water resistance. With a fuss-free and nicely-executed date function at three, the Colt remains a very solid everyday sports watch.
Apart from the dial design, the most noteworthy aspect of this Colt refresh comes down to dial color. Now offered in either “Silver” (seen below, more of a matte creamy light-grey) or “Tempest Gray”, both versions of the Colt look really amazing. I especially like the unexpectedly modern feel of the matte Silver dial as it is surrounded by the brushed steel of the Colt’s bezel. While both dial options work well for the Colt design, the Tempest Gray dial is typical Breitling while the Silver dial is just a bit odd. 
While certainly heavy on the Pilot steel bracelet, being 41mm wide and 12.4mm thick, the Colt wears really well and I think it would be even better on a simple leather or canvas strap. The bezel action is smooth, and aided in grip by the rather baroque rider tabs. As for the size, the Colt has presence and heft, but not so much that it overpowers my seven-inch wrist. In spite of my preference for a light-toned dial, in either color I suppose the Colt is one of the replica Breitling’s well-rounded offerings and an attractive option for anyone wanting a tough everyday sports watch that isn’t particularly flashy.
