The Breitling Superocean Heritage collection consists of a family of watches that adopt faithful deign cues from the 1950’s Superocean original, yet with some updated features. Our most popular timepieces from this collection feature various 42mm, 44mm or 46mm case dials, and evoke an elegant yet traditional appeal. These attractive tools for professionals in all areas of expertise, are equipped with strong, robust case constructions and dazzling displays that instantly demand attention. These timepieces also appeal to the younger generation of watch lovers, in particular those looking for a divers design to add to their existing collection of Breitling aviation instruments.
The Breitling Superocean Heritage collection is modest and understated. Although some broader and more daring case diameters occupy the collection, the watches sit quite at home under the cuff of an office shirt or suit if desired. Bring the Superocean Heritage out on display and all of a sudden, everyone wants to admire the wrist of the lucky gentleman wearing it. One particularly attractive design feature of the Breitling Superocean Heritage collection, is its array of stunning bezel colours. Polished to perfection and decorated in various finishes, from the classic, sleek black, to a gorgeous 18ct red gold, or alternatively, the deep ocean blue version with matching blue dial – Breitling have considered a style and finish for every occasion and every personality.
Breitling Superocean Heritage watches are also equipped with incredible engines. The Caliber 23 and Caliber 17, to name just a couple. The movements are shielded from external factors such as shock, vibration, friction, water and heat. The watches are put under stringent tests to determine their strength and durability – important qualities needed for a long service on the wrist of the most adventurous of individuals. The instruments originally developed for diving professionals, are dressed in sporty black perforated rubber straps and traditional mesh bracelets, yet are interchangeable with a number of different bands, for those opting for a different look depending on the occasion.
The Breitling Superocean watch has a slightly unusual appearance when compared to other models of different collections. Devotees of style will instantly fall in love with the retro feel of the dial, whilst a gentleman in favour of traditional layouts, will appreciate its simplicity. As with all Breitling watches, functionality is effortless and materials sourced are of the finest quality. The instruments are fitted with water resistant steel cases and are finished on sapphire crystal glass fronts, with anti-reflective treatments applied to both sides. This feature, when combined with Breitling’s patented luminescent technology to the central hands and hour indexes, provides a stunning display of colour and light to reference the time from, whenever the wearer finds himself in light-challenging situations.
Compared to its predecessors, the Breitling Superocean Heritage comes with a redesigned bezel with 15 minute graduation scale and a slimmer case for a sleeker fit. For those in search of a diver’s watch with incredible style, combined with a luxury finish, the Superocean Heritage pleases on all levels. Each instrument, complete with self-winding movement features a beautiful polished or satin brushed stainless steel case with a black, blue or silver dial and a distinctive chunky carved hour hand with arrow tip.
