Swiss watch brand Breitling unveils a new blue-look Superocean 42 diver’s watch, which surges confidently through the waves with its ultra-sturdy steel case water-resistant to 1500 meters (5,000 ft). It makes its way through changing fashions in bold style with its explosive look and dynamic numerals.
In this 2,000-piece limited edition, the ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel is clad in blue rubber – a shade picked up on the dial with its luminescent hands and hour-markers and on the rubber strap embossed with the Breitling signature. The result is an appealing play on colors and materials enhanced by the steel finish that is polished on the case and satinbrushed on the bezel numerals.
While the new Superocean 42 looks set to be a summertime star on the beach, on the town and in the ocean depths, it nonetheless boasts all the characteristics of a true Breitling instrument for professionals, including peerless functionality and readability. It is equipped with a selfwinding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the highest benchmark in terms of precision and reliability and the only one based on an international standard.
