Breitling Launch Superocean 44 UK Special Edition

Breitling Launch Superocean 44 UK Special Edition

This new variation within the iconic Breitling Superocean collection combines high precision with innovative technology and a new vibrant design. Bold and sporty, the new special edition is designed for those looking for a sports watch combining serious performance with classic style.

Defining the classic divers watch, Breitling’s Superocean was created in 1957 to equip professional and military divers, and immediately developed a following among leisure divers and watch enthusiasts due to its clean easy to read aesthetics and striking detail.

The UK special edition, holds the classic design with a play on a maritime blue/black colourway – an elegant combination that will elevate summer style.

The new Superocean 44 Automatic is waterproof up to 100bar/1,000 meters and is highly legible thanks to the Super-Luminova® coating on the numerals, indexes and hands. At the heart of this new Superocean is the Breitling Caliber 17, a movement that offers a power reserve of around 38 hours.

The watch also features a sturdy 44mm stainless-steel case, black dial, a uni-directional blue rotating bezel, as well as a choice of a stainless-steel bracelet or a black rubber strap.
