The UK Top Replica Breitling Chronomat Fused The ‘Seinfeld’ And ‘Friends’ Universes

Astute enthusiasts and comedy lovers probably know that Jerry Seinfeld is not just into horology but has a particular proclivity toward perfect Breitling replica watches. You can frequently catch him rocking a white-dial Aerospace on episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (a concept I once riffed on, without the comedy, or a comedian, for an episode of A Week on the Wrist). But his UK cheap fake Breitling habit – nay passion – dates back to the late 1980s and early ’90s on-screen in Seinfeld.

Aside from the occasional Navitimer – and Cartier Santos – appearance, his watch of choice was the luxury fake Breitling Chronomat, likely the ref. 81950A in two-tone with a “Rouleaux” bracelet. That bracelet, with its unique look, makes the watch easy to spot – that, and the form factor of the case, and rider tab bezel. The Swiss made copy watch was a commercial success in the 1980s, and its popularity poured right into the ’90s with Seinfeld (the man) adding to its popularity then and its mystique now on Seinfeld (the show).

The 39mm Breitling Chronomat replica for sale was released in 1984, the culmination of years of work by then Breitling head Ernest Schneider, who had originally developed the watch under a different name – The 1:1 fake Breitling Chronograph “Frecce Tricolori” – for the eponymous Italian Frecce Tricolori Jet team (that watch was launched in 1983). The recessed crystal and the bezel with protective rider tabs became design staples of the Valjoux 7750-powered Chronomat. In many ways, Schneider made it one of the key super clone watches of the ’80s – but Seinfeld made it the watch of the ’90s.

Seinfeld debuted in 1989 with a truncated pilot/first season order of just five episodes. The suits at NBC didn’t believe in the show about nothing – and clearly didn’t see the future watch spotting value. Friends kicked off five years later, in 1994, and while the format and comedic stylings were vastly different from those of Seinfeld, there was a familiar and friendly (hehe) wristwatch to be found on Cox’s wrist in her role as Monica Geller: The high quality fake Breitling Chronomat … well, sort of.

Her watch looks like a Breitling Chromonat super clone online in basically every way aside from the case size (36mm) and the movement (quartz). It appears to be a model called the copy Breitling Sextant ref. B55045, also in two-tone, with a blue dial. It looks like it’s based on the Chronomat (and is more often than not referred to as a Chronomat), but then again, in the ’90s, just about every other high end replica Breitling looks like it’s based on the Chronomat. However, there’s a reason we don’t technically call it one. And that’s because the Chronomat name is a combination of the words Chronograph and Automatic. But for all intents and purposes, the luxury fake Breitling B55045 design draws almost entirely from that watch.

While there’s no actual connection between Seinfeld and Friends other than the network on which they aired, let’s get conspiratorial and make a timeline. The Seinfeld episode entitled “The Wife” guest-starring Cox aired March 17, 1994. In that episode, Seinfeld is seen wearing his Swiss movement fake Breitling Chronomat in scenes with Cox (sadly, we don’t see her wrist). Almost six months to the day later, on September 22, 1994, the Friends “pilot” aired on NBC. But it gets better. You see, the pilot episode was shot on May 4, 1994 – less than two months after Cox’s Seinfeld appearance.

So what does that mean? Well, to take a page out of Larry David and George Costanza’s book: Nothing. But it sure is neat, and begs the question – did Seinfeld influence Cox’s watch decision? If nothing else, it cements the Breitling replica Paypal UK, and its design language, as a key horological touchpoint of the decade that was the 1990s.

UK Swiss Made Breitling Chronomat 81950A Replica Watches

However, if I didn’t have a single fake watch today and wanted to buy something nice for myself to enjoy for many years to come, I would go for something different. I guess I am quite alone regarding my choice. I’m sure this applies to both my Fratello colleagues and you, my dear Fratello readers. I picked this perfect replica Breitling Chronomat in steel with some gold elements. It is reference 81950A, and you can find this watch in several variations.

Watches from the ’90s are becoming a thing with me
I have to admit that I have only one uk luxury fake Breitling in my collection. It’s an Aerospace model from the early 2000s, though I can’t recall the exact reference number or “type.” It’s a lovely watch, but it does feel a bit wonky. The bracelet rattles, the crown isn’t very easy to operate (it feels incredibly stiff), and the rotating bezel feels cheap. However, I like the looks of the watch, and all of the functions work as they should. I am unsure what that says about this cheap replica Breitling Chronomat because it was produced before my Aerospace.

I can imagine that today’s best 1:1 replica Breitling watches are made better, and the ones we get in the Fratello office for review definitely feel more sturdy.
However, the 1980s and ’90s are an era that I feel is underrated when it comes to collecting watches. Perhaps the quality standards were different than today’s, but that decade had some pretty decent watches. The aforementioned Seamaster 300M comes to mind, or what about the Ebel 1911 with the El Primero movement? The AAA fake Breitling Chronomat from the 1980s and 1990s is a watch that I always enjoyed looking at, and I guess the brand sold many of these based on the numerous times I ran into them. And I still do! The top super clone Breitling Chronomat also made appearances in the sitcom Seinfeld, albeit a version with a black dial and white sub-dials.

Gold and steel
It’s also from a time when a 39mm case wasn’t considered too small or too big. I would say that 39mm should work for most men and women. Even if you have large wrists, 39mm will often be fine. The thought that it might be too small is mainly between the ears. Inside of this high quality fake Breitling Chronomat reference 81950A is a Valjoux 7750 movement (Breitling Caliber 13), and Breitling didn’t put much effort into making it aesthetically pleasing. It’s a plain-Jane caliber 7750. The black dial has gold/yellow sub-dials at 12, 6, and 9 o’clock, and there’s a date aperture at 3 o’clock. Between the center pinion and the date window is the famous wing logo and “Breitling” branding. The steel case has an entirely brushed finish, making it more of a tool watch than some of its later variations. The pushers and crown are made of gold, and so are the rider tabs on the bezel.
Gold engraving
You will also find some gold on the case back of this best quality copy watch, where the engraving in the center has been gold-filled. I love this watch best on the famous Rouleaux bracelet, but it will be tough finding one for under €2K. The version I found comes with a leather strap and a signed Breitling buckle.

The 39mm Breitling Chronomat 81950A replica for men is a versatile watch. Although some of you may perceive it as tacky, I think this 1990s Breitling Chronomat 81950A has withstood the test of time. The 39mm brushed stainless steel case with gold elements looks neat, and I think you could wear it with a suit as well as a T-shirt and jeans. It’s a nice all-rounder despite the use of yellow gold. In searching for a nice Swiss movement copy Breitling Chronomat 81950, I also bumped into a full-18K gold edition for under €6,000.

And it can be serviced
Another important aspect to me is the serviceability of cheap super clone watches. It’s something that makes me wonder about the many microbrands out there and whether they’ll be able to properly service your watch in the future. With this Breitling replica for sale uk, that shouldn’t be a problem. That’s one of the perks of buying from a big brand. If you don’t want to spend a significant percentage of the purchase price of this pre-owned Swiss made copy Breitling on a service, you could also ask an independent watchmaker for a quote. Since there’s a Valjoux 7750 movement inside, it shouldn’t be too expensive.

This particular 1990s best fake Breitling Chronomat 81950A is for sale at ZeitAuktion for €1,950. The site also offers Chronomat watches on the Rouleaux bracelet for a few hundred euros more.

So, do you think this packs a punch for below €2K? Or would you rather go for the Tissot PRX Chrono or something else? Let me know in the comments below.
