Swiss watch brand Breitling introduces a new limited edition model variation of its Superocean Chronograph, a high performance diving instrument that features Ultra-technical, ultra-sturdy design and functions. With a staggering water-resistant up to 500m (1,650 ft), the Superocean Chronograph has already conquered the hearts of adventurers who like to explore the lands and oceans.
The new limited edition model further accentuates its powerful character. Its stand-out feature lies in the unidirectional rotating bezel, an indispensable companion for the finest feats in deep waters, which appears clad in red rubber – offering a superb touch of vivid color echoed on the chronograph sweep seconds hand, the counter rings, the date window and the model’s signature.
Issued in a 2,000-piece limited numbered edition, the new Breitling Superocean Chronograph houses a high-performance selfwinding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). The highly readable dial is fitted with oversized hands and hour-markers, underscored by a luminescent coating, as well as a thick sapphire crystal that is glareproofed on both sides.
The Superocean Chronograph is a champion of security equipped with a screw-locked crown and pushpieces that can only be activated after being unlocked, as well as a valve serving to balance out differences in pressure inside and outside the case. It comes with a choice of steel bracelet, a strap in rubber or Barenia leather, or the all-new Superocean leather strap with red edges to match its bezel.
