A bold statement
With its new Superocean collection, Breitling has further developed one of this brand’s most popular and successful watch families and raised it to an unprecedented new level. This diver’s watch has been setting standards below and above water for over 60 years. Water-resistant to a depth of 300 metres, the Superocean 48 is unquestionably the highlight of the new collection. The impressively dimensioned titanium case is DLC-coated and has a diameter of 48 mm and a blue ceramic bezel. Its size and colour make it an immediate eye-catcher, but a second glance reveals that this watch has much more to offer. Its soft iron inner case protects it against magnetic fields, and its rotatable bezel can be locked into place with a safety lock positioned on the left-hand side of the case. This timepiece features a brand-new ‘ventilated’ rubber strap in blue. Ventilated bracelets are a special bonus for divers: by counteracting the potential effects of water pressure during deep dives, they ensure that the wristband always fits perfectly.
Also among the new line-up unveiled at Baselworld 2019 is the Superocean 36. Designed for women who want the quality and performance of a great sport watch in a more compact size, it boasts a 36-mm stainless-steel case with a ratcheted unidirectional bezel and a choice of either a light blue or white dial with a matching Diver Pro II rubber strap or an equally stylish stainless-steel bracelet. The Superocean 36 is water-resistant up to 20 bar (200 metres).
