Who here can claim never to have heard of the SuperOcean watch from Breitling? The iodized Replica Breitling Watch par excellence, the one that many of us have already seen on the wrists of people with impeccable tans on the Coast, and that some of you may even have owned.
The early 1950s sounded at Breitling the hour of aviation with all the records and innovation in aeronautics that the period could experience. I can only advise you a few lines on the birth of the famous Navitimer.
While the Cheap Breitling Replica is a success for the brand that is asserting itself with pilots, a territory has not yet been conquered by Breitling: the ocean. Breitling therefore presented its 20 atmosphere waterproof diving model in 1957. The SuperOcean was born.
A very large concave rotating bezel with markers every 5 minutes and a luminous marker to calculate dive times even if the light were to fail. Its charm comes from its sharp and long triangular indexes, associated with faceted steel triangle indexes at the cardinal points which come to overcome round painted indexes. The length of these makes it possible to have a recognizable wide and short hour hand.
A remarkable and somewhat unusual chronograph, since the Breitling Replica Watch central hand is neither a second nor a chronograph second, but a totalizer of the minutes of this last. Nicknamed “Slow moving chronograph” by the slowness of this famous hand, a window at six o’clock indicates whether the chronograph is running or not.
Large applied indexes surmounted by a layer of luminescent material, a large minute track section here very slightly inclined, an imposing square lollipop characteristic minute hand, a nod to that of the historic chronograph, not forgetting the rotating bezel with its luminescent marker . So much for the identity of the inspiration watch.
A watch whose finishes are appreciated, regardless of the diameter, Breitling Replica available in 36, 42, 44 and 46 mm. A general brushed finish revealing some polished chamfers to bring a little rhythm, and the appearance of crown shoulders. On all versions, ceramic has taken its place on the bezel, giving it a beautiful shine.
A little disappointed, however, in front of so much quality that the action of the bezel is not up to par when turning it. On the 46 mm diameter version only, Luxury Breitling Replica has added a patented system at nine o’clock to the case allowing the bezel to be blocked, here bidirectional. More professional, therefore.
We are pleased to find the caseback simple and pretty, brushed in the center, polished at the level of the inscriptions, and which contains in all the different versions the same caliber 17. An automatic movement which is based on the ETA 2824 in chronometer quality of course and certified by the COSC.
For the Breitling Replica Watches China 36 mm version, orange, white and blue dials are available, special mention for the latter of a very pretty shade; for the 42mm version of black, blue, silver and orange, the latter being a special edition Kelly Slater; for the 44 mm version of black, blue (light or night) as well as a Khaki version and finally for the beefy 46 mm version only black and a night blue.
