Breitling Aviator 8 Mosquito Watch Hands-On

The Aviator 8 is part of the Navitimer Replica collection that was completely overhauled back in 2018 by Georges Kern. Outfitted with the in-house B01 movement, these are on the upper end of the Breitling Chronograph spectrum.Classic design can go in a lot of different directions, but so much depends on the execution.

The Breitling Aviator 8 Mosquito Replica Watch is housed in a 43mm-wide and 13.97mm-thick stainless steel case framed by a black ADLC bezel that’s cut by the pointer, done in a highly vibrant red.

You’ll note that Breitling Replica points out the use of ADLC here, which creates a deeper-looking black than standard DLC, though the two are functionally identical. It absolutely is a dark, brooding black that doesn’t come across on many black-coated DLC watches.

The equally black dial has contrasting silver sub-dials, an indicator that High Quality Replica Breitling uses when a watch features an in-house movement. The orange and red adds just enough color to give the watch some added personality, but not so much to take away from just how sleek and sharp the heavily black Aviator 8 Mosquito is.
