The Breitling Superocean Automatic 44 is a part of a new diver range that also focuses on safeguarding our seas.
«Our Surfer Squad and the partnership with Outerknown and Ocean Conservancy speak volumes about our connection with the sea» declares George Kern, CEO of the maison. «The new Superocean collection features watches we created for people that want to explore the oceans whether it be through water sports or projects aimed at safeguarding the marine environment».
A sea to be protected for the pleasure of being explored
The Superocean Automatic 44 collection watches have a 44mm steel case which houses the in-house automatic Calibre 17 with a bi-directional oscillating mass. It has a 38-hour power reserve and boasts COSC certification. It also beats at 28.800 vph and has hours, minutes, seconds and a calendar.
With a choice of blue and black dials the Superocean Automatic 44 is an invaluable piece of kit when diving because itd anti-reflective domed sapphire glass makes it wonderfully legible as does its luminescent numerals, indices and hands which are painted with Super-LumiNova®. It also has a unidirectional ratcheted bezel and can be paired with a Diver Pro III rubber wrist strap or a steel bracelet. It does not disappoint on the performance front either: the Superocean Automatic 44 is designed to withstand the pressure of up 1,000 metres. That is no mean feat for a watch so very stylish. Its sporty soul is effortlessly married with a clean, pared-back aesthetic, making it the ideal companion for undersea exploration and for everyday wear alike, not least because its case is just a little over 14 mm thick.
On the crest of the wave
Surfing legend Kelly Slater and the equally renowned Breitling have combined forces on am exciting and significant new project that aims to raise awareness of the problem of pollution in our oceans. A message that the Superocean Héritage Chronograph 44 Outerknown (6.500 euro*). has been chosen to drive home. To do so, the model’s wrist strap has been made from ECONYL, an innovative material developed by Outerknown, the clothing company Slater co-founded which reuses discarded nylon from the likes of fishing nets retrieved from oceans the world over. The chronograph has a 44mm DLC-covered steel case and an elegant blue dial.
