Breitling Chrono SuperoceanOn December 22, 2008 by breiblog
The divers watch since 1957, the Breitling Superocean has meet industry professional’s high standards and continues to be a favorite in the field. The Breitling Chrono Superocean meets the same expectations today as a Breitling Superocean would have in the 1950’s.
One of the most important parts of a diver’s watch is water resistance technology. The Breitling Chrono Superocean is resistant to water for at least 1,650 feet or 50 bars. The pushpin is the secret (which is an important part of making sure a watch is water resistant) because it ensures resistance and protection against shocks. The Breitling Chrono Superocean’s pushpin can only be activated after unscrewing and removing the restraining ring that holds the push pieces in place. The next most important attribute of a divers watch is the ability to see important features in the dark of the deep. The Breitling Superocean has oversized and luminescent hands and hour markers as well as glareproofed sapphire crystal on the case front and back.
Other attributes are important to a diver’s watch also…the Brielting Chrono Superocean watch includes a great caliber (Breilting 13), a self-winding mechanical movement, 42 hour power reserve, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 25 jewels, 1/4th second chronograph (30 minutes, 12 hours), day and date calendar, steel case, unidirectional and ratcheted bezel, screw locked crown with two gaskets, screwed in case back, and a 42 mm diameter case.
