The New Breitling Superocean and a 50 Year HeritageOn September 23, 2008 by breiblog
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.
