Breitling Superocean II

The new Breitling Superocean II features a redesigned dial and bezel, a slimmer profile, an additional 36 mm size and a new rubber strap. Since launching the Superocean in 1957, Breitling has consistently optimized it on both technical and functional levels with the goal being to accompany professional and military divers, as well as recreational diving enthusiasts in their underwater adventures around the world.

The profile of the Superocean II 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 accentuated by large rounded Arabic numerals enhanced by a white luminescent coating and oversized hands that shine in the dark. The ultra-sturdy 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 extended the line with a 36 mm polished steel case available in black or in a resolutely feminine white-clad version.
