Breitling Superocean Diver’s WatchOn November 19, 2008 by breiblog
One of the hardest pieces of equipment for a diver to purchase is a watch. It has to be water resistance for hundreds even thousands of meters. A quality watch is needed when under water, one that can last and the Breitling Superocean lives up to its names.
Since 1987 Breitling Superocean watches have been the best of the best when it came to diver’s watches and today’s version is no different. The Breitling Superocean watch is water resistant to 5,000 feet because of its screw-locked crown and safety valve which allows it to release helium that builds up after spending time under water.
The Breitling watch also has great readability with glareproofed sapphire crystal on both sides, large hands, a triangular shaped hour hand, and luminous markers; all increasing visibility under water.
Additional technical specifications include a Breitling 17 caliber, 25 jewels, steel case, and a unidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel. Additionally, the bracelets are available in Breitling Professional strap in stainless steel or the Diver Pro strap in green or blue.
