For many watch enthusiasts, whether we are talking about emerging interests or collectors rooted in the industry for a long time, when the name of Breitling is mentioned, the first thing to think of is Navitimer.
In other words, the Breitling Superocean is a very beautiful diving watch, surfaced in 1957, ready to compete with the Rolex Submariners and Blancpain Fifty Fathoms divers at that time. Although its competition in the antique market is not as strong as the brothers of other mothers mentioned earlier, the original Super Ocean Man has been traded to the mid-to-high five-figure level and continues to rise.
With the latest update of the Superocean series (Heritage II), Breitling continues to wear hats in the form and function of those early vintage design specifications.
Although previous generations used a fairly similar design language, the updated Superocean Heritage series are quite similar to the first professional diving watches launched by Breitling, which was launched 60 years ago.
The clean, clear dial has a sharp contrast index, a simple frosted bezel, a 5-minute mark without a number, and the broad arrow and arrow pointer settings are in line with the original Superocean visual code. Although there are more text and date windows on the dial, Breitling did choose to retain the original “B” logo and original font of the work name.
Of course, as a modern Breitling, the new work offers two case sizes to meet contemporary tastes. Both the chronograph and the larger three-hand diver have a 46mm case, which will be a bit heavier for people with smaller wrists, but for most Breitling fans who are accustomed to a larger proportion of other watches, They will be quite attractive.
For those looking for a more compact appearance, the Superocean Heritage II can also be housed in a 42mm case, which is generally regarded as the ideal case size for modern divers. The thickness of the 42mm aaa fake watch is just over 14mm, so it is still enough to meet the needs of people who want a dive watch.
The diving watch market is saturated (pun intended), and this type of watch simply cannot be tolerated. Superocean Heritage II has three hands and chronograph functions, can provide 200m waterproof performance, enough to cope with any underwater entertainment activities.
Both models have a 120-click unidirectional bezel for firm and precise action. Although not as buttery and smooth as other dive watches on the market, this level of resistance is both beneficial and reassuring, eliminating any risk of accidental movement of the timing markers.
“Speaking of the refurbished super marine heritage line, the century-old professional diving watch was launched as early as 60 years ago.”
Like any high-quality diving watch, Breitling uses a lot of luminous materials on its index, hands and 12 o’clock bezel markings to ensure optimal readability under all lighting conditions. The outer edge of the bezel uses a delicate coin-like edge, which is not as thick as the edge of Tudor Black Bay, but not as thick as the edge of Blancpain Fifty Fathoms or Rolex Submariner.
Although these changes are not particularly minor than the next one, we did find that the grip and level of action of the Superocean Heritage II perfectly match.
Although the diving chronograph is not a particularly common combination, its position in the Breitling Superocean series makes sense. Unlike most early dive watches that appeared in the late 1950s, Superocean was first provided as a diver’s chronograph.
Unlike other brands that can add the complexity of a chronograph just because of a dive watch replica, Breitling’s addition is based on history.
As mentioned earlier, the fit and firmness of the Superocean Heritage II case and bezel are very strong. These parts use a ceramic bezel and an automatic movement certified by the Observatory. The simpler three-hand movement hides an interesting secret detail.
The Breitling B20 movement is actually a fairly improved version of the Tudor MT5612 movement, which can be found in the Pelagos and Black Bay series. The caliber of B20 is different from that of its siblings. It has elegant Côtes de Genève stripes and does not use silicon balance springs.
That is to say, it does provide the same 70h power reserve, and uses a fairly robust balance bridge to help enhance its overall shock protection. The main force of the movement is a welcome addition to the Breitling roster, and we hope to see it appear in other models in 2018.
