The Breitling Superocean collection is one of the most successful and representative watch lines from this brand. Now under the reigns of former IWC President Georges Kern the brand has gone through an interesting transformation, with some good releases and others we don’t like so much. However, the new Superocean Collection unveiled during Baselworld 2019 was a solid home run in our opinion. The new collection not only reflects the brand’s diving DNA very well, but also takes into consideration the so many different wrist sizes around the world and delivers a solid offering with five different sizes to please almost everyone.
From a massive 48 mm —featured here— all the way down to a 36 mm perfectly suited for small wrists or for women, the new watches are certain to appeal to people with active lifestyles, seeking a timepiece that is made to withstand the elements and specifically water activities.
Powering the new watches is the Breitling Calibre 17 based off of the ETA 2824-2, while not an in-house calibre, this automatic movement with 25 jewels offers a power reserve of around 38 hours while beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph. All of the new watches are COSC-certified chronometers and feature bright superluminova numerals, indexes, and hands, ensuring excellent readability in any conditions. All watches feature a screwed-in solid case back as well as a screw-down crown.
