The Exospace models have been released as a tool for pilots, and also for drivers, but the elusive sailor has been missing from this Exospace collection since 2016 – so it’s a natural progression in the direction of this utility watch and Breitling’s commitment to “making great timepieces for use in the air, on the ground, and at sea.” Now, whether a sailor would actually wear an Exospace B55 Replica Watches or not is a question for later on, but there’s no doubt that the Breitling Expospace B55 Yachting model features an updated multi-colored dial and some cool tools for perhaps one of the most elite and expensive hobbies in the world.
Moving on to the watch itself, this is quintessentially Top Breitling Replica. With a titanium case measuring in at a generous 46mm x 15.25mm, this watch will either get caught on the sleeve of a boating jacket, or sit on top of it. The claim is that the unidirectional rotating bezel can be useful for wind direction, sailing angle, and optimal starting positions, which I suppose is technically accurate – though I feel it’s a stretch for marketing.
The new dial seems legible enough with the updated colors to the minute’s track and the hands and indices differing in color from the dial, making it easier to read the time when the watch gets wet. The watch comes with a blue rubber strap with a case-matching folding clasp and “BREITLING” branding that spans the entire length. Water resistance is optimal at 100m, something you’d be surprised isn’t always the case with boating-themed Breitling Replica Watches.
Overall, this is… a release. There are some minor electronic changes over its predecessor, and some additional aesthetic options may give this some appeal to regatta racers who want a new toy. I’ve struggled with the practical nature of the AAA Replica Breitling Exospace B55 collection as I feel that in those quick-thinking, fast-paced situations, the last thing a sailor, pilot, or racecar driver wants to rely on is a watch – though I do see its usefulness in a situation where that’s all you have available to you.
