As you can see from the pictures, the Avenger Skyland has a very unique dial, one that isn’t that simple to replicate. The most difficult thing about copying the design of this watch is the stencil-type numerals used as hour markers. These are very pronounced digits made of stainless steel with a unique shape and- except the numerals for 1 and 11 o’clock- all numbers are split in half by an empty line. Most cheap fake manufacturers are unable to replicate this detail and instead of using stainless steel digits cut in half, they simply paint a black line over the numerals to imitate the aspect of the original watch. This is a huge mistake and a watch that has this sort of hour markers is obviously a fake.
The unidirectional ratcheting bezel of the Breitling Avenger Skyland makes 120 total clicks per a full rotation and has a brushed finish. It features the specific Avenger gradations and numeral markers: 15 at 3 o’clock, 30 at 6 o’clock and 45 at 9 o’clock. Of course, at 12 o’clock there is the iconic white luminescent dot. Tiny securing screws attach the bezel to the case, and these are placed to coincide with each number on the bezel.
The original Avenger Seawolf comes with the Prodiver 2 bracelet. This is a heavy and sturdy stainless steel bracelet equipped with a deployment clasp. The links of the band are brushed and angled which makes the bracelet look unique and stylish. Beware of any different looking type of bracelet.
The Breitling Avenger Skyland is legendary for its bi-directional rotating bezel with a slide rule on the outer ring that turns the watch into a navigation calculator with a sleek chronograph. The rule serves for calculating average speeds, fuel consumption, climb and descent rates and other essential navigation data. The ratched stainless steel bezel allows easy grip and overall handling. The design of this rule is very important when it comes to a knockoff. The bezel is complex and this makes it difficult to replicate.
This can be seen when you take a look at the pictures of the fake Navitimer. The outer metallic part of the bezel doesn’t have the same look. The easy grip margins are more rugged and have pronounced corners whereas the ones on the replica are more rounded. Also, the inside rule has different style of indexes and gradations. The font is different, the size of the numbers is smaller and the gradations are not as spaced apart and long as on the genuine watch.
