Breitling’s new Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown celebrates the brand’s partnership with Outerknown, a sustainable clothing company committed to improving environmental conditions for the entire planet. The watch features a first for Breitling: the strap is crafted from ECONYL® yarn, an innovative material created from nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets from oceans around the world. Like Breitling, Outerknown – which was co-founded by surfing icon Kelly Slater – works with Ocean Conservancy to raise awareness of the problem of marine waste and to motivate individuals to take action to clean up the oceans.
Breitling’s Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown is a striking wristwatch whose black case, bold blue dial, and blue ECONYL® yarn NATO strap make a bold style statement. The color blue also creates a powerful, eye-catching link to the oceans and the blue planet, which sustainable clothing brand Outerknown and its co-founder, surfing legend Kelly Slater, are striving to support.
The Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown has a striking black DLC-coated stainless-steel case and a caseback engraved with the distinctive Outerknown logo. The COSC-certified chronometer features an ultra-hard scratch- and shock resistant unidirectional ceramic bezel with a luminescent central dot at the 12 o’clock position – an ideal feature for a diver’s watch. The Super-LumiNova® coating on the dot and the hour and minute hands emits a blue light instead of the standard green, which perfectly complements the watch’s design.
The Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown is powered by the Breitling Caliber 13 mechanical chronograph movement. The blue dial is distinguished by its matte gray “SuperOcean” inscription, white accents, subdial, and central second hands, while the subdials are characterized by their white accents and black nickel-plated indexes. The familiar B in the Breitling logo also features a black nickel-plated finish.
This diver’s watch, whose style statement is complemented by its powerful links to sustainability, is water resistant to 20 bar (200 meters/660 feet).
With the Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown, Breitling is, for the first time ever, introducing a watch with a strap made from recycled materials. Each timepiece features a NATO strap made from ECONYL® yarn, a regenerated nylon material created from nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets from oceans around the world. The partnership with Outerknown also inspired the pattern of the strap, which is based on a fabric produced by the clothing company. The strap’s color – taffeta dark blue – reflects this extraordinary watch’s connection to the oceans.
The Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown is also presented in packaging made entirely of recycled materials.
