Breitling has unveiled the new Superocean 44 Special to its Middle East customers – their very own “ocean pilot”. Since 1957, Breitling’s Superocean models have combined exceptional performance with a technical and professional style. This new model embodies the range’s history with an original design, while maintaining its authenticity as a true diver’s watch.
The Breitling Superocean 44 Special replica features a black steel case, black dial bearing large luminescent indications and a black ceramic bezel, ensuring perfect readability for divers at depths of up to 1,000 m (3,300 ft). The striking contrast between the all-black exterior and the white indications, accentuated by a luminescent coating, provides users with optimal readability in the darkness of the oceans. The oversized markers come with large baton-type hands, clearly distinguishing hours from minutes. There are different shaped hour-markers for five-minute intervals, quarters and 12 o’clock, and the bezel has a 60-minute scale, also highlighting five-minute intervals, quarters and 12 o’clock.
The sturdy satin-brushed black steel case, is fitted with a twin-gasket screw-locked crown, guaranteeing water resistance. A safety valve serves to equal out the differences in pressure both inside and outside the watch as the wearer changes depths. The brand-new rotating bezel in shiny black ceramic, a particularly resistant high-tech material, guarantees users an accurate dive-time count-off, while the ratcheted profile ensures an optimal grip even when wearing gloves.
