Gents’ stainless steel Breitling Superocean Heritage 46 Special Edition, ref: A1332024/C817. Automatic chronometer certified calibre 17 chronograph movement, complete with original box and paperwork dated 2010.
Breitling launched the original Superocean range in 1957, responding to increasing demand for reliable, sturdy watches with enough pressure-resistance to survive recreational and professional diving exploits. As timekeeping is extremely important whilst underneath the waves, Breitling saw the Superocean as an ‘instrument for professionals’ and a watch to rival the likes of Omega’s Seamaster and Rolex’s Submariner – a watch that they could be truly proud of. The Superocean Heritage is a tribute to the original; taking subtle classic stylistic elements such as the bezel, dial and bracelet and incorporating them into a modern, chronometer-certified diver’s chronograph.
This gent’s Breitling Superocean Heritage 46 Special Edition has a stainless steel 46mm case with screw-down crown, caseback and pushers and is water resistant to 200m. The blue dial with black subdials and date window is covered by an anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The watch is powered by a chronometer-certified, automatic / self-winding chronograph movement, calibre 17, and is fitted to a black rubber ‘Ocean Racer’ strap with folding clasp.
