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.
