Breitling has partnered with IRONMAN, a Wanda Sports Group company, in launching the Breitling Superocean IRONMAN® Limited Edition timepiece. As part of the partnership, Breitling becomes the Official Luxury Watch of IRONMAN® and will also be present at several events, including the IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship in Nice, France, and the 2019 Vega® IRONMAN® World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i.
The Breitling Superocean Automatic 44 IRONMAN® Limited Edition, which celebrates the partnership with IRONMAN and its events, is a member of Breitling’s popular family of Superocean divers’ watches. It has a 44-millimeter stainless-steel case and a black dial featuring the unmistakable IRONMAN® logo. It is presented on a red Diver Pro III rubber strap with a pin buckle. Its ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel is an essential feature for divers as it can be used to track the elapsed time underwater.
The numerals, indexes, and hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, a luminescent material that allows optimal readability in any lighting conditions. The COSC-certified chronometer has central hour, minute, and second hands.
This self-winding watch is powered by a Breitling Caliber 17, an automatic mechanical movement that offers a power reserve of 38 hours. It is water-resistant to an incredible 100 bar (1000 meters).
The Superocean Automatic 44 IRONMAN® Limited Edition has a caseback engraved with the IRONMAN® logo and the legend “ONE OF 300”, reflecting its coveted limited edition status. The watch will be available exclusively on Breitling’s own e-commerce channel, in selected Breitling boutiques, and on site at the IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship in Nice and IRONMAN® World Championship in Kailua-Kona.
