New Breitling Superocean

Categories Watches

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.
