Breiting Superocean II 36, 42 and 44 Watch Review
Wednesday - 02 September 2015
The Breitlng Superocean range has welcomed three new models to the exceptional diving collection. Meet the Superocean II 36, 42 and 44 introduced at Baselworld 2015.
The Superocean concept was initially unveiled back in 1957 and has since been continually evolved in both technicality and functionality by the expert Breitling engineers. A goal that drives the team is the idea of accompanying professional and military divers without neglecting recreational diving enthusiasts. The Superocean II strives to follow passionate divers in their underwater expeditions and adventures by enhancing and developing the formula; the Breitling team refuse to settle and strive for perfection!
The Superocean II has successfully been crafted with a slimline case for a lightweight and comfortable feel. The fluted rubber moulded unidirectional rotating bezel deliberately presents oversized large numerals, a vital countdown of the last 15 dive-time minutes and a triangle with a luminescent marker positioned at 12 o’clock; necessary features to increase visibility and keep divers in harsh conditions safe. Another legibility technique is the large rounded Arabic numerals and oversized hands coated with a white luminescent and allow for the dial to be read easily in a blurred setting. The robust steel case with a screw-locked crown ensures that the timepiece is water resistant reaching depths spanning from 200 to 1000 m (660 to 3300ft). The three diameters of the Superocean II depend of the preference of the diver. The 42 and 44 mm versions are available in either a black or blue dial that matches the bezel and strap effortlessly. The 36 mm sticks to a black dial and stainless steel casing. To ensure reliability, precision, outstanding performance and quality each edition hosts a mechanical self-winding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC.
