The Breitling Superocean Combines Fun With Zesty Colours

The Breitling Superocean Combines Fun With Zesty ColoursPeek Breitling’s Superocean range of dive watches that look set to redefine what dive watches should look and feel like in a post-pandemic world. At a time when new standards and norms are established, Breitling takes on the mantle to challenge the codes of watchmaking. Serious, professional, and no-nonsense are a few words dive watches are usually associated with. We think of them as menacing or intimidating tool pieces relegated to wetsuits.

The new Breitling Superocean, however, introduces a new set of vocabulary that chimes to the tune of fun, casual and zesty, to coin a few.

Colours take centre stage in the Breitling Superocean — a contemporary interpretation of Breitling’s original SuperOcean Slow Motion from the 1960s and 1970s. Distinct colour blocking, enhanced further by the dial ring, adds to the visual spectacle.

Classic shades such as black and navy are joined by orange, turquoise and white, used in combination with the dial and bezel.

The result is a fresh departure from traditional dive watch guises. This is further emphasised by a range of case dimensions (46, 44, 42, and 36 mm) that caters to virtually every wrist size imaginable. Whether you are planning to snorkel, ride some waves or even take it slow by the beach, the Breitling Superocean promises to be your best wrist candy.
