Hands On: Breitling Superocean Automatic 36mm Orange Stainless Steel Watch Replica

In June, Breitling launched the new Breitling Superocean Automatic 36mm Orange Stainless Steel watch replica A17377211O1S1. Taking its aesthetic cues from the much sought-after Breitling slow-motion dive chronographs of the 1960s and 1970s, the new The Superocean watch replica completely eschews the chronograph complications of its predecessors and re-imagines the model as a simple three-handed sports watch with ample water resistance and a distinctly retro overall design.

The Case

The stainless steel case has a diameter of 36 mm, a lug-to-lug distance of approximately 42 mm and an overall thickness of approximately 12 mm. Located at the top of the case is a 120-click unidirectional rotating chronograph bezel with a white ceramic insert and its elapsed time scale with silver markers. Protecting the dial is a domed and curved sapphire crystal with glareproofed coating on both sides, while the signature screw-down crown and sturdy stainless steel caseback help to provide the 36 mm Breitling Superocean replica with ample water resistance to 300 meters.

The Dial

The dial and hands of the new Breitling Superocean replica are the most obvious inspiration for its vintage design, although they are by no means an exact reproduction of the examples found in the original vintage slow-motion chronograph. The dial itself is essentially a two-layer structure, consisting of a flat central surface containing applied rectangular hour-markers, then surrounded by a prominent white chapter ring that slopes upward to meet the crystal and bears minute track markers. The small, stubby hour hand is complemented by a lollipop-style minute hand with an illuminated box, intended to resemble the chronograph hand on vintage models.

The Movement

Powering the replica Superocean 36 is the Breitling Calibre 17, essentially a chronometer-certified, Breitling-decorated and assembled version of the ETA 2824-2. As such, it offers the standard specification of running at 28,800vph with a power reserve of around 38 hours. It’s pretty much the best when it comes to the venerable ETA 2824, and since you also get chronometer-certified timekeeping performance, the Superocean replica watch really isn’t the same as a watch using the off-the-shelf Sellita SW200.

The Strap

The 36 mm version of the replica Breitling Superocean is available with either a stainless steel bracelet or an orange rubber strap, and the version I’m going to review is the strap version if I’m buying this watch for me. The two-piece orange textured rubber strap is thick, but quite comfortable out of the box, and attached at both ends is a thick stainless steel folding deployment clasp. The two-button release is easy to operate, and the clasp includes an extension system that provides five tool-free micro-adjustment positions.


The official retail price when purchased on the strap is $4,600, or $4,800 if you choose the bracelet. As the latest model, we are designing, If you are interested in Breitling watch replica, you can pay more attention to our store, we are the largest and most reliable replica of luxury watches store, copy watches such as Rolex, Patek Phillippe, Panerai, Cartier, Hublot, IWC, Tag Heuer and more.
