Breitling – Superocean II 36, 42 and 44


On the occasion of Baselworld 2015, Breitling is revealing new interesting models. I’m pleased to take a look at the new Superocean II watches.

Watches from Superocean collection are made to be sturdy and precise. They have to withstand the serious water depths, so the owner can entirely rely on these instruments during his challenges. We can generally choose between three sizes of the Superocean II case – 36mm, 42mm and 44mm. Each version can be modified in terms of dial and bezel colour. We can also choose the attachment to our wrist, for example the stainless steel bracelet or super durable rubber, leather strap in matching colour. The reason I adore Breitling so much is the possibility to slightly customize your timepiece.

All Superocean II watches are powered by self-winding mechanical Calibre 17 movement with a minimum power reserve of 40 hours. It works with frequency of 28,800 vph. Despite these watches have the same heart, the water resistance is changing with increase of the case diameter. The 36mm version is equipped with the water resistance of 200 meters, where the rest versions (42mm and 44mm) are ensured with 500 meters and 1000 meters of water resistance. So, if you are going to use this watch as a water instrument, the water resistance matters. But, if this watch will be used as a ‘daily’ sporty watch, you can choose a diameter of the case between three universal sizes.

An ultra-readable dial (black, blue or white) is the key of the quality watch, whether it is a professional instrument or simply an everyday use watch. In this case, we get oversized numerals and hands enhanced with the luminescent coating. In terms of complications, there are only crucial features like : hour, minute and second indication. A date is displayed in the aperture at 3 o’clock.
