Basel 2010: New Breitling Superocean

Breitling SuperOcean 2010

Breitling SuperOcean 2010

Breitling has revived the design of the legendary diver’s instrument it launched in 1957. While the technical qualities that have forged the Superocean’s reputation have been respected, the timepiece has been given a thoroughly new look. The rubber-moulded bezel features sloping numerals and flutes that underscore its technical nature and adventurous vocation. The strikingly distinctive dial is a continuation of the same vigorous design with applique numerals and hourmarkers standing out against the black Abyss ground, which is encircled by a blue, yellow, red, silvered or black bevelled flange. A born diver, it is water-resistant to 1,500 metres and has all the attributes of a professional instrument, like the safety valve that automatically releases the accumulated helium when the internal over-pressure reaches around 3 bar.
