Breitling HAS LAUNCHED A RE-DESIGN OF ITS ICONIC SPORTY SEA WATCH, THE SUPEROCEAN. the new breitling superocean is a technical marvel made for the sea.



The new Breitling Superocean retraces the pared-down aesthetic of the Original SuperOcean Slow Motion from the 1960s and 1970s, while adding modern features and bright new colours.

Although this new collection is inspired by the Slow Motion's simplified tool-watch philosophy, it has been revised to meet the needs of modern wearers. A keen eye will spot several design nods to the original.

Aside from looking good, the new Breitling Superocean is also a technical marvel. Water-resistant to 300m (1000 ft), it features broad hands and indexes coated in Super-LimiNova® that allow for exceptional readability underwater. Its scratchproof ceramic-inlaid bezel means it will never wear or fade. This watch is also shock, sand, and saltwater resistant.

Available in four sizes (46, 44, 42, and 36mm), the collection's colourful dials are paired with three different case metals - steel, steel-gold, and bronze. The special alloy used in the 44 and 42mm bronze versions has an excellent resistance to corrosion but will develop a subtle patina over time making the watch even more unique.

A stand-out from the new Breitling Superocean collection is the collaboration with Breitling SurferSquad champion Kelly Slater. Limited to only 1000 pieces, the special-edition Superocean Automatic 42 features an eye-popping orange dial and military-green rubber strap. The colour scheme is inspired by a watch Slater's dad used to wear surfing.

“I’ve been co-creating watches with Breitling for the past few years but this one, in particular, is very personal. It’s inspired by my late father, who had a watch with an orange face that he used to wear surfing for as long as I can remember. The green and orange together is a colour scheme I used to like for the airbrushes on my boards growing up. That combination has always stuck with me.”
