Thereplica breitling bentley flying b also has a neat looking black case with gold trim. I have been very open on how much I think black and gold go nicely together, so the overall presence of the watch is impressive. Unlike the more tool-like and serious Bentley Mulliner Diver in polished steel, the replica breitling Bentley Mulliner version is more dress, formal, and overall just plain fancy. The 44mm wide is steel with ion plating (IP) for black as well as gold. A little issue I have with Breitling is their use of IP plating on some of their higher-end pieces. They probably do IP better than anyone else around, but for watches in this price range I started to want PVD, DLC, or otherwise. Why am I being nit-picky? Well it really has more to do with the type of person who buys a watch like this. They are discriminating watch lovers and know what to expect in a watch that costs several thousand dollars. Why PVD and DLC over IP? Well it is a matter of strength and wear resistance. When Breitling uses IP and everyone else used PVD or DLC, questions start to be asked. At the same time, I am open to the fact that I might be wrong. If Breitling tells me their IP coating process is hard enough to justify its use, I am totally cool with that. I don't mean any of these as a complaint, but more as info http://www.buyijoy.com/replica-breitling-chronomat-44.html can use when designing watches like this in the future. The majority of the time I am incredibly impressed by their high-end pieces. As a diver, the case is water resistant to 200 meters (pretty standard for a diving chronograph). The crystal is AR coated sapphire, and it has a nice looking rotating diver's bezel. I have to say that the Bentley case incorporates a diver's bezel quite nicely.Inside the watch is Breitling's in-house made Caliber 8R39 Mulliner chronograph movement. It is a nicely decorated workhorse in fancy clothing with some nice features such as a column-wheel and vertical clutch for the chronograph. As it is a diver, the caseback is solid, but you get a nice little engraving (which is actually like a wave breaking over water). It also says "Air Diver's" on the back and I am not sure what that means. Maybe some of the more hardcore Breitling dive watch fans can explain that to me. The Breitling bentley bentleyis a handsome addition to any collection, especially those that love Japanese or dive watches. It is another of those perfect everyday watches that will dutifully see its owner through any occasion. One thing this watch does communicate to me over its European cousins is "rough me up." In a good way that is. Swiss watches make me want to shield them from the elements and danger to maintain their appearance, while a good Japanese watch always appears ready for duty and willing to take whatever you can throw at it. This is one of the reasons a high-end Japanese watch such as this calls to me, and why it ought to call to you too.
