The New Breitling Superocean and a 50 Year Heritage

I love this watch; it’s a Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronographe with a self winding movement, steel case, black dial, and Ocean Classic bracelet in steel.  This Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronograph is definitely a watch fit for James Bond. The Superocean was launched in the late 1950s as a professional diver’s watch.  Like a popular celebrity, the Superocean accumulated a following of diving enthusiast from around the globe.  Some Breitling Superocean watches can even go under water at 2000 meters.

This new Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronographe has “Heritage” in the name for a reason.  Just like 50 years ago the new Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronographe’s dial carries the Breitling signature and is topped by the letter B in 18-carrat gold.  Some other interesting features of the new Breitling Superocean is the luminescent triangular tipped hands, Ocean Classic woven steel bracelet, steel case, 46mm diameter, and 200 m water resistance.

Other technical specifications of this Breitling watch include Breitling 13 Caliber, a self-winding and high frequency movement, a minimum of 40 hours of power reserve, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 25 jewels, dial aperture calendar, unidirectional and ratcheted bezel, screw locked crown, and cambered sapphire and glare proofed crystal.

Breitling Blackbird watches are designed based on Breitling’s flagship model the Chronomat. The Blackbird comes with a black dial only, hence the name. But the Breitling Blackbird watch isn’t black just because of the name; the black also enhances the large hands and oversized luminescent hour-markers.

The Breitling Blackbird watch has a Breitling 44 caliber, a self-winding mechanical movement, power reserve up to a minimum to 42 hours, 1/4th second chronograph, 28 800 vibrations per hour, 38 jewels in a steel and 18k white gold case, water resistance for up to 10000 m… gold 100 m, bidirectional ratcheted bezel, screw-locked crown, screwed in caseback, cambered sapphire crystal which is glare proofed on both sides and it is 43.70 mm in diameter.

Trendy Breitling Watches for Men and Women

I love Breitling watches for their beauty, their uniqueness, and of course the style. Regardless of the rumors that Breitling watches are sophisticated pilot watches, they do have some pretty trendy models also.

Breitling’s Superocean Heritage 30 is one of those watches. It has a self-winding mechanical movement with at Breitling 37 caliber. The power reserve on this Breitling watch lasts up to 42 hours complete with 28,800 vibrations per hour. The Superocean Heritage by Breitling has 27 jewels, dial aperture calendar, steel case, unidirectional bezel, screw-locked crown, screwed in caseback, and is water resistance for up to 600 feet. Both sides are cambered sapphire and glareproof for a protected and glossy finish. My favorite is the blue and white version.

The Cockpit Lady watch by Breitling is another traditional watch but if you get it in the brown and steel with diamonds it’s an instant trendy hit with the same Breitling quality including at Breitling 71 caliber, SuperQuartz movement (termocompensated quartz electronic, EOL indicator), dial aperture calendar, and water resistance of up to 100 m. This Breitling watch also comes with a non screw-locked crown with three gaskets, screwed in back, unidirectional bezel, and sapphire as well as glareproofed on both sides.
