As we can see from the picture above, the new Breitling SuperOcean 2010 not only shares some common features of the brand’s diver’s watch series, such as the unidirectional ratcheted bezel and the Ocean Racer rubber strap, but also has some distinct design from its predecessors.
The famous diver’s timepiece was launched in 1957. Breitling had already established itself as the official supplier to world aviation. The Superocean is equipped with an ultra-readable dial, an armored glass and a monohull case watertight to a depth of 200 meters – a remarkable feat at that time. Originally designed to equip professional and military divers, the original model quickly gained a following among enthusiasts in the booming field of leisure diving.
Breitling is now updating the legendary collection by debuting a Superocean with an entirely revamped design. The new dial colors are Abyss Black, Abyss Silver, Abyss Blue, Abyss Red and Abyss Yellow; the watch size remains 42mm. The Superocean 2010 collection features a rubber or steel bracelet option, Breitling’s Caliber 17 self-winding movement, over-sized Superluminova hands and hourmarkers and water-resistant to 1,500 m.
