Breitling Superocean II

Endowed with a redesigned dial and bezel, a slimmer profile, an additional 36 mm size and a new rubber strap, the Breitling Superocean II confirms its nature as a superdiver model offering a distinctive blend of style and performance. Since launching the Superocean in 1957, Breitling has consistently optimized it on both technical and functional levels – the goal being to accompany professional and military divers, as well as recreational diving enthusiasts in their underwater adventures around the world. The Superocean II, the latest representative of this exceptional lineage, confirms this vocation for great accomplishments. The profile of the case has been slimmed down for enhanced lightness and comfort. The fluted rubber-molded unidirectional rotating bezel displays clearly visible large numerals, a countdown of the last 15 dive-time minutes and a triangle with a luminescent marker at 12 o’clock. Dial visibility is further accentuated by large rounded Arabic numerals enhanced by a white luminescent coating and oversized hands that also shine in the dark. The ultrasturdy steel case with screw-locked crown guarantees perfect water resistance to depths ranging from 200 to 1,000 m (660 to 3,300 ft). The new Superocean comes in 44 and 42 mm diameters, with a case in satin-brushed (44 mm version) or polished (42 mm version) steel and fitted with a black or blue dial matching the bezel and strap.Breitling has further enriched the line with a 36 mm polished steel case available in black or in a resolutely feminine white-clad version. The brand also offers a new evolved variation on the ultra-sports Ocean Racer rubber strap, recognizable by its row of holes surrounded by an embossed circular motif. These three Superocean II models are equipped with mechanical selfwinding movements chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the highest industry benchmark in terms of reliability and precision. Outstanding performance, combined with an ultrasporty aesthetic.
