BREITLING’S SUPEROCEAN HER­ITAGE II REF­ER­ENCES THE 1957 ORIG­I­NAL BUT WITH A LOT MORE IN THE AIR TANKS, TECH­NI­CALLY SPEAK­ING.

Men's Style (Australia) - - Watches -

IT’S BEEN A YEAR FOR long­stand­ing watch mod­els to visit the ar­chives and re­lease a new ver­sion which in­cor­po­rates el­e­ments of the very first one.

Mark­ing 60 years since the 1957 re­lease of the Superocean dive watch, in a decade when div­ing watches came of age, it would be re­miss of Breitling to not do like­wise with the Superocean Her­itage II.

Avail­able in 42mm and 46mm, as well as the 46mm chrono­graph pic­tured, in blue, black and brown (or ‘cop­per­head bronze’, to be pre­cise – it looks more bronze in per­son), the tri­an­gu­lar hour hands and lozenge-like minute ones, along with the slightly cone­shaped hour-mark­ers, are the most ob­vi­ous links to the 1957 orig­i­nal.

A new steel bezel with scratch­proof and shock-re­sis­tant ce­ramic ring in the colour match­ing the dial is the most sig­nif­i­cant update to the model, while the move­ment in the non-chrono­graph mod­els is the Man­u­fac­ture Cal­iber B20, de­vel­oped in part­ner­ship with Tu­dor.
