The ocean is calling: experience the new super ocean
Breitling just launched a redesigned sporty sea replica watches for sale
The new collection traces the minimalist aesthetic of the original SuperOcean Slow Motion from the 1960s and 1970s, while adding modern features and a bright color palette. Plus, it's no longer strictly a dive watch - use it to surf, swim, go to a beach bar.
Turn off the volume to turn off ads In the 1960s, the nascent sport of scuba diving was all the rage, inspired by the adventures of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau. In diving, timekeeping is everything – almost exclusively in minutes – and Breitling wanted not only to provide the best tool watch for the task, but to give it a sense of style.
To create this early SuperOcean, Breitling designers eliminated any redundant features that did not support the life-saving needs of underwater divers. A high-contrast dial ring has been introduced in the key minute scale. For readability, subtle indexing in favor of thick glow sticks is employed. And, in its most daring move, Breitling eliminated the seconds hand because divers...don't really need it. In its place is a revolutionary minute chronograph, dubbed "slow motion" because it takes an hour to complete a full rotation of the dial.fake watches for sale
Today, Breitling unveils a new SuperOcean that harks back to the idea of a simplified tool watch in slow motion. While the collection has been revised to meet the needs of the modern wearer (the seconds hand is a must, of course), a keen eye will spot several design nods to the original.
The collection was unveiled to media, retailers and influencers at the Wheels & Waves surf and motorcycle festival in Biarritz. The event follows a day of ocean-themed events, with surprise visits from European surfers and screen celebrities. In attendance were surfers Andrew Cotton, Jérémy Florès and Natxo Gonzalez, as well as actors Guillaume Canet from France and Álvaro Morte from Spain.
“Most dive watches have a certain similarity in appearance, but slow motion always stands out from the crowd,” Breitling CEO Georges Kern said at the festival. "We are delighted to present our modern take on this classic new Superocean."Richard Mille RM 67-01 Extra Flat
born for the sea The coloured dials of the collection are available in four sizes (46, 44, 42 and 36mm), paired with three different case metals – steel, steel-gold and bronze. The special alloy used in the 44mm and 42mm bronze versions has excellent corrosion resistance but still develops a subtle sheen over time, making the watch even more unique. Two strap options (a sporty rubber strap and a new three-row metal bracelet) have a folding clasp that can be fine-tuned up to 15mm for easy wearing over rashes and wetsuits.
Besides looking good, the new Superocean is also a technological marvel. Water-resistant to 300 m (1000 ft), the wide hands and indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova® for excellent readability underwater. Its scratch-resistant ceramic inlaid bezel means it will never wear out or fade. For safety, most sizes of the bezel are unidirectional, while the 46mm bezel is bidirectional with a patented lock. The watch is also shock, sand and salt resistant. Its automatic Breitling Calibre 17 comes with a two-year warranty and approximately 38 hours of power reserve.
On top of that, the unique square minute hand in slow motion makes a comeback. The same goes for the high-contrast minute scale. Fans will also remember the "dot", a circular window at 6 o'clock that displays different colors depending on whether the minute chronograph is started, paused or closed. In the new Superocean, a circle near the tip of the second hand winks at this much-loved feature.replica Grand Seiko watches
Serious performance, laid-back atmosphere The Breitling Surfer Squad, consisting of Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore and Sally Fitzgibbons, is once again the face of the new Superocean collection. The watch collection includes the special edition Superocean Automatic 42 Kelly Slater. Co-designed with the surf champion, this timepiece is limited to 1,000 pieces and features a jaw-dropping orange dial and army green rubber strap. The color scheme is inspired by the watch that Slater's father used to surf.
"I've been making watches with Breitling for the past few years, but this watch in particular is very personal," Slater said of the collaboration. “It was inspired by my late father who had a watch with an orange dial and he wore it to surf for as long as I can remember. Green and orange together are the color scheme of the airbrush on planks that I loved growing up. That combination has always bothered me."
In the new Superocean, there is something for everyone. Collectors will recognize the power of slow motion, water sports enthusiasts will appreciate its technical features, and style-conscious folks will gravitate to its versatility from day to night, beach to boardroom. The new Superocean perfectly balances nostalgia for its heritage while taking a new wave.replica MB & F Watches
