Longines Avigation BigEye Chronograph Pilot’s Chronograph Luminous Replica Watches UK

Longines‘ latest is definitely be a crowd pleaser: the Avigation BigEye is a remake of an aviator’s chronograph that gets its nickname from the oversized minute register – and unlike most Longines Heritage reissues the Avigation BigEye has no date.

History of Longines BigEye

The St. Imier watchmaker has gone through almost every decade of its archives for inspiration, from the 1930s to the 1960s, with the new BigEye modelled on a early 1970s Longines leather strap wristwatches UK. The look is familiar, being reminiscent of several military pilots’ chronographs of the era, most notably the Type XX that several brands, Breguet, Dodane and Auricoste amongst them, supplied to the French air force and navy.

A feature sometimes found on chronographs of various makes from the 1950s to 1970s, the “Big Eye” is designed for improved legibility since elapsed minutes are often crucial. While historical “Big Eye” pilot’s chronographs often had 15-minute counters, the modern day Longines remake has a 30-minute register (a consequence of the movement inside) with oversized hashmarks every three minutes, making it slightly crowded.

Big one – 41 diameter

The Longines BigEye is 41mm in diameter, and stainless steel with a brushed finished and stepped bezel. It’s fitted with a suitably retro domed sapphire crystal.

The case back is solid, but hidden underneath is the L688 movement, which is an ETA Valgranges ETA A08.L01, which is an improved and enlarged version of the Valjoux 7750. Upgrades include a column wheel instead of a cam, as well as a boosted power reserve of 54 hours, compared to 48 hours of the basic 7750.

Bell & Ross BR-X1 Black Titanium Chronograph Rubber Strap Replica Watches UK

Bell & Ross has been knocking them out of the park lately, with several vintage-inspired watches that really hit the spot, like the new Vintage Collection and some derivatives, such as the Vintage V2-92 & V2-94 Garde-Cotes and the commemorative Bell & Ross replica BR126 Renault Sport 40th Anniversary watches UK. Today, however, we’re shifting gears and getting hands on with one of the brand’s more futuristic-looking models; the BR-X1 Black Titanium Chronograph, a softer and more “monochrome” version of the bold chronograph we already tested.

Pure French brand

Part of the French brand’s extensive Instrument collection, the BR-X1 series made its debut three years ago with the intention of bringing the fight to the likes of the Hublot King Power and the Audermars Piguet Royal Oak. Given the series now boasts 17 different models – including the exceptional BR-X1 Chronograph Tourbillon Monopusher – I think it’s safe to assume that it has performed this mission quite well. it is bold, it is very technical, it has a very striking movement and it is has a module architecture, allowing for several different versions. And a new one, in a very monochromatic style, is coming.

Art design

One of the latest models, unveiled at Baselworld 2017 earlier this year, is the BR-X1 Black Titanium Chronograph men’s fake watches. Presented in a distinctive, 45mm grade-5 titanium square case with round bezel, the design of which is inspired by aviation instruments, it is light and comfortable on the wrist. Protecting the case against accidental knocks is a black ceramic band, which pairs nicely with the black rubber strap and complements the overall stealth look of the watch. The ergonomically-designed rocker pushers are done in this same ceramic material, and have rubber inserts to ensure a good grip, even with gloves on.

What really stands out on the BR-X1 Black Titanium Chronograph, and indeed all BR-X1 models, is the dial. Or more accurately, the transparent sapphire plate that sits above the skeletonized movements and is used as a dial. Despite giving the initial impression that it is barely there, closer inspection reveals that there is actually a lot going on. For a start, the logo and inscriptions, as well as the indexes of the running second at 3, are directly printed on this sapphire disc in a gun-metal silver color. At six o’clock there is a small aperture for the date, whilst there is a 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock for elapsed chronograph minutes, with an applied track in the same gun-metal silver color on the periphery.

Superluminova

The hours and minutes are indicated centrally via metal skeleton Superluminova- filled hour and minute hands, as are the chronograph seconds. On the periphery of the dial, there is a minute track printed on a brushed ring, on the top of which sit the metal applique Superluminova-filled indices, which denote the hours. These give the appearance of floating on top of the rest of the skeleton dial Bell & Ross copy watches, creating a nice sense of depth. Completing the chronograph indications is an inner flange with a tachymeter scale. In keeping with the super-stealth styling, the sapphire crystal on top is grey-tinted. Arguably not the most legible chronograph out there but certainly very cool looking nonetheless. I particularly like how the matte-brushed look of the titanium and metal inserts on the dial contrast against the black of the ceramic band.
