Breitling Supereocean Heritage Chrono 46mm

Posted on

Breitling Supereocean Heritage Chronograph 46mm on mesh bracelet, this a recent acquisition its the big brother to the Breitling superocean 44m I suppose the smarter looking versions.  The heritage range has been in production for 60 years was first launched in 1957 as a professional divers watch and later was used by diver enthusiasts.

The watch comes in two sizes 42mm and 46mm with non chronograph or with chronograph movement, this one is the chronograph Calibre 13 Cosc rated self winded 25 jewels with date aperture at 3 o clock power reserve 42 hours.  A blend of polished steel and small satin bits, Breitling have a lot of shinny watches in there collections polished to a high shine which is not to everyone tastes.

They have launched a Superocean Heritage II which looks the same almost part from the hands!!  Surprised Breitling not gone down the Ceramic Bezel route as most watch brands have I feel would make the watch a lot nicer looking and makes a better noise when rotating the bezel than steel sound.  I always liked the mesh bracelet on Breitling watches never was a leather strap type of guy love the bracelet look., the blue dial version is much nicer than the black in my opinion.

Breitling produce some great priced watches for the money this one is mid range model and is great all rounder smart and casual also a divers watch too not that many folk actually go diving with them!

Breitling Superocean Heritage A17321

Posted on

Here the Breitling Superocean Heritage A17321 is a recently acquired piece as I liked the blue dial. This superocean has long standing history with diving with Rolex & Omega dating back to 1950,s but has grown in size also in style.  The superocean Cosc rated with a case size of 42mm also a depth rating of 200 metres and comes on the Breitling mesh bracelet which is another reason I like this model, although straps can be optional from leather to rubber to steel bracelet.

The superocean sits well on the wrist with the stunning blue dial and blue steel bezel.  The watch has a “AR coating” anti reflection coating on the glass as most Breitling watches do and can be a bugger when you scratch or mark it. The watch has a automatic movement with a date window at 3 o clock the finish is highly polished steel which is the not unusual for Breitling.  I think the watch makes a great every day wearing piece which I feel is the target market fro Breitling. The watch looks great when wearing a white shirt also suitable for the office as well as pleasure.

Overall Breitling’s are under rated all round it might have something the do with re sale value rather quality of the watch.  My first watch was a Breitling Aerospace super quartz which I loved then moved on the Rolex.

The Superocean has a new make over at Basel 2017 with a ceramic bezel which most watch brands have moved to much harder wearing and does not fade over time.  Here is video by Hodinkee with the version Superocean.
