Built For Adventure - The New Breitling Heritage Superocean II

New Breitling Superocean II Luxury Watch

The spirit of discovery is within us all – it may draw us to leave what we know, and ascend into the skies or into the deep. For those professionals upon which adventure is not just a hobby, but a way of living, the necessity of carrying precise instruments to measure timings is of the utmost importance.

A Vintage Model Made New

In 1957, Breitling answered to this call with the legendary Superocean watch, rapidly adopted by leisure divers due to its high performance and ground-breaking water-resistance to 200m. A first for its time, the watch was unrivalled in its robust technical qualities.

This year, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the watch, Breitling has redesigned the Superocean Héritage line, paying tribute to its success. Giving the watch an overhauled face design, the steel bezel now incorporates a high-tech ceramic ring that is scratch proof and shock-resistant, whilst the metal ring which surrounded the minute circle in previous versions of the watch, has now been removed. A date aperture is included a the 6 o'clock mark that helps you keep track of the week. Have a look at the older and new models below.

Tested For Higher Levels Of Magnetic Resistance

Besides water, you also have to worry about increasing pressure and even magnetism. These are also things that can affect the precise movement of the watch that could end up costing precious time, especially when you need it most. As with all Breitling watches, the Superocean Héritage II models have been independently certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), affirming their exceptional performance in the most adverse of conditions. Chronometers boast higher levels of magnetic resistance, preventing natural magnetic fields from interfering with the precise movement of the watch.

It is of course not just all about precision, but style and poise. The updated models feature more modern stitch detailing as well as smoother straps, with additional bracelet options. The Superocean Héritage II comes in 42mm and 46mm options, with the chronograph available as a 46mm option. Available in three colours - black, blue and bronze – you can team together the dial of your choice with a variety of straps for a versatile timepiece that can express your personal sense of style.
