Breitling Superocean Chronograph II

Water-resistant to 500m, Breitling now introduces the SuperOcean in a limited edition stylish ‘abyss’ red colour. The chronograph version of the Superocean, this model combines a youthful, dynamic and modern appearance with a high-performance self-winding movement chronometer-certified by COSC.

One of its strongest features is the unidirectional rotating bezel, clad in red rubber on the chronograph sweep seconds hand, the counter rings, the date window and the model’s signature.

The Superocean chronograph is limited to just 2000 pieces. The easy to read dial is fitted with oversized hands and hour-markers, underscored by a luminescent coating, as well as a thick sapphire crystal that is glareproofed on both sides.

The Superocean Chronograph is equipped with a screw locked crown and push-pieces that can only be activated after being unlocked, as well as a valve serving to balance out differences in pressure inside and outside the case.

The watch comes on a choice of steel bracelet, a strap in rubber or Barenia leather, or the all new Superocean leather strap with Abyss red edges to match its bezel.
