As a watch, I do appreciate the fake Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute B02 quite a bit. I like the 24-hour layout on the dial, the syringe hands, and the very elegant bezel. And I even like how Breitling redid the model for last year’s anniversary, except for that date at 6 o’clock, of course. But otherwise, it still very much has the vibes that the original had back in 1962. I do prefer the way the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster wears on the wrist, though. Yes, it might be 1mm wider, but because of the lugs’ dramatically sloping facets and the external bezel, it definitely wears smaller than the Cosmonaute.
I also much prefer the bracelet on the luxury fake Omega Speedmaster, especially when we’re talking about the current versions of both these watches. The one for the B02 Cosmonaute is the typical brushed/polished “slanted” seven-row bracelet that comes with a lot of Breitling watches. It’s just a little too clunky and shiny for my taste. Then again, it’s up against one of the best bracelets currently available on a sports watch. The designers at cheap super clone Omega really went the extra mile on the new Speedmaster bracelet
A sports watch versus a space watch
One big difference between these two watches is that the Cosmonaute was specifically designed to be worn during spaceflight. The Omega Speedmaster replica for men, on the other hand, was introduced as a sports/racing chronograph to emphasize Omega’s role as the official timekeeper for the Olympic Games in 1957. I think it’s quite badass that a watch that was incidentally on the wrist of a few astronauts became one of NASA’s officially certified instruments. It somehow won that race against a watch that was specifically designed to go into space.
And even though I like what the Breitling designers did with the 2022 Cosmonaute re-edition, I think the aaa quality fake Omega Speedmaster wins this battle in terms of design. In particular, the current Omega Speedmaster replica online is such a nice reiteration. And what I really appreciate is that you can choose between versions with either a Hesalite or sapphire crystal. The whole point of buying such a space-inspired watch is the fact that a similar watch went to space. In that case, buying it with a Hesalite crystal makes a lot of sense. That’s why I think it’s a shame Breitling doesn’t offer that option.
To conclude the nitpicking, I’d like to point out that the Cosmonaute is only water/pressure resistant to an equivalent of 30 meters. The Swiss movement fake Omega Speedmaster is rated to 50 meters, which isn’t the most impressive spec on a sports watch either. However, I’d be more comfortable bringing the high quality replica Omega Speedmaster near some water than I would with the Cosmonaute.
