A Dashing Pilot replica Watch in Diamondblack

The bi-directional rotating bezel with recesses turns smoothly and is completely different from the Navitimer, with its smooth, downward-sloping top, white hour-markers and numerals, and a read reference point. The fluted section continues the sharp, tapered downward slope and, in contrast to the Navitimer, the raised section is not exactly parallel to the flutes. the Mosquito bezel ring also features the ADLC coating, which turns a deep, dark black as opposed to the anthracite color of the DLC coating used by Breitling for many years.  
The “Diamond Black” ADLC coating was developed specifically for luxury goods. Its hardness, impact and scratch resistance, and elegant black metallic luster make this carbon-based coating ideal for fake watches. The gas-based process and the low coating temperature of fewer than 200 degrees Celsius are ideal for coating complex shapes and sensitive materials. 2 to 3 microns of coating retain the structure of polished or matte surfaces. DiamondBlack is hypoallergenic and resistant to acidic and alkaline chemicals and solvents. Due to its good frictional properties, Diamondback can also be used as a coating for mechanical replica watch parts. It reduces the need for lubrication and extends the maintenance period. Here, however, it is not used for watch movements.
Thanks to the extensive use of Super-LumiNova, the dial glows brightly at night.
The colorful accents are reminiscent of de Havilland’s “Mosquito”.
The black dial is reminiscent of vintage cockpit instruments and clocks. The bold red-orange accents are intended to recall the insignia and markings on the fuselage of the de Havilland Mosquito, a British multipurpose aircraft from the 1940s, one of the fastest planes in the skies during World War II, made almost entirely of wood – the inspiration for the name “Mosquito” used for this replica Rolex Watch 8 B01 chronograph.
The eye-catching hand with its orange frame indicating the main time dominates the top of the dial. The same color is repeated on the small hand of the stopwatch function and on the tip of the central stopwatch hand. Although these elements do not glow, the main hand, together with the hour numerals and markers and the 12 small triangles on the minutes/seconds track at the edge of the dial, glows bright green in the dark. In daylight, the white Super-LumiNova contrasts with the black dial to enhance readability.

The minute track on the edge of the dial is based on the original reference 634, with triangular markers pointing inward every five minutes, minutes with extensions, and thinner line markers representing zero one second. The large Arabic numerals come from Ref. 765 AVI, which rose to fame among pilots as the “co-pilot”. The three silvered sub-dials and the numerals on the bezel can also be found in these early models.
