This past year Breitling arrived on the scene by having an entirely new Superocean watch. It featured a contemporary searching design inside a more compact 42mm situation. While many people wanted a more compact Breitling diver, much more did not. So, only one year later, the Superocean II continues to be rejuvenated and enlarged. Now, for 2011, Breitling provides the Superocean 44. It is available in two versions: A 3-hands, along with a chronograph. There’s additionally a GMT version however that is available in the 42mm wide situation and will also be talked about elsewhere.
Apart from being 44mm wide versus 42mm wide, the Superocean dial continues to be cleared up and it is now more legible. To compare reasons you should check out the Breitling Superocean in 2010 here. The dial maintains the main appearance of the timepiece that arrived on the scene this past year, but I think you will agree it’s more legible. There’s extra space between your hour markers, and much more utilization of applied baton hour markers in comparison to the stylized Arabic numbers.
The situation has some minor variations when it comes to styling. Although the variations aren’t anything too major, upon alongside comparison you can observe these truly are different pieces. The greatest change for that situation may be the water proofing. That old three-hand model was water-resistant against 1,500 meters as the brand new one goes lower to two, 000 meters. The chronograph and GMT are water-resistant against 500 meters each.
The bezel style is slightly different too. Still no lume however the rubberized bezel place presently has minute markers from o – 15. Like this past year, both chronograph and fundamental automatic versions will be a slew of color options. I actually do love all of the color options that Breitling provides. They think sporty and fun, adding an optimistic feeling of character towards the collection. Both watches may have Swiss automatic actions which are COSC Chronometer licensed.
Using the Superocean 44, the Superocean Heritage, along with other Superocean models you will find lots of Superocean watches to select from. The customer has more options than ever before for Breitling’s venerable dive watch range and they’re all on the truly amazing rubber strap (by having an awesome deployment), or perhaps a steel metal bracelet. They are some good searching watches and, for me, is a noticable difference within the model offered this past year. Search for these watches soon.
