The latest addition to the Superocean family meets the demands of the serious diver.
Breitling first introduced the Superocean model in 1957, and it has since developed a reputation deserving of the brand’s famous tagline, ‘instruments for professionals”.
The new Superocean 44 Special continues this hard-won name, with a design that meets the demands of an authentic diver’s watch.
Described as an “ocean pilot” – it’s black and white, highly legible style recalling aviator-type watches – the new piece features a satin-brushed black steel case, black ceramic bezel and a black dial bearing large luminescent indications enabling the diver to use the watch at a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft).
The unidirectional rotating bezel in shiny black ceramic guarantees an accurate dive-time count-off. Readability is enhanced by the all-black exterior and the white indications in a luminescent coating. Markers are strongly oversized so as to catch the eye, while large
baton-type hands clearly distinguish the hours from the minutes, different shaped hour-markers for five-minute intervals, quarters and 12 o’clock; and a bezel with 60-minute scale also highlighting five-minute intervals, quarters and 12 o’clock.
Inside a 44 mm-diameter case, the Superocean 44 Special houses a selfwinding movement officially chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), teamed with a black rubber strap featuring Breitling’s signature and raised central ridge, or a row of holes.
Australian pricing is $6,870.
