BREITLING SUPEROCEAN - The ultimate sea watch
Breitling Superocean watch
Straightforward and a bit of fun
In the 1960s, Breitling made an impression with the SuperOcean Slow Motion. At that time, deep-sea diving was a new trend. Timing is crucial in diving, especially the number of minutes, not necessarily every second. For this iconic watch, Breitling eliminated any unnecessary information on the dial. Therefore, a date indication is not found on these models. In addition, a high-contrast dial ring was added with the crucial minute indication. The subtle indexes were replaced by large luminous numerals.
The most important step, however, was to drop the second hand. Divers do not need this. Instead, Breitling introduced the revolutionary minute chronograph. This was called “Slow Motion”. It takes an hour for this hand to go around the dial.
As the ultimate successor to the SuperOcean Slow Motion, Breitling now introduces the new SuperOcean. To meet the demands of the modern customer, the second hand was added, but the design features of the original SuperOcean were further developed.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern said about this watch: “Most dive watches look more or less the same, but the Slow Motion has always stood out. We are so excited that we can introduce the new Superocean, a modern version of this classic.”
Best of all, this is no longer strictly a dive watch – surf with it, swim with it, go to the beach bar with it and wear it during dinner. The Superocean perfectly balances the nostalgia of its heritage with a fresh new look. Discover the entire collection in our store and surf the waves of contemporary timeless Breitling craftsmanship.
The Superocean stands out with its ceramic inlaid ring and brightly colored dials. Wide hands and indexes in luminous Super-LumiNova® provide easy readability underwater. The watch is waterproof to 300 m and shock, sand, and saltwater resistant. The bronze version uses a special alloy that is excellent at resisting corrosion, but will develop a subtle patina over time that makes the watch even more unique. The two strap options (rubber and metal bracelet) have a folding clasp that allows micro-adjustments of up to 15 mm for easy wearing over rash guards and wetsuits. The scratch-resistant ceramic inlaid bezel will never wear or fade. For safety, the ring on most sizes is one-way and bidirectional with a patented lock on the 46 mm.
