Don’t get us wrong, there are Superoceans out there that make for great dress watches. We mean, it’s a Breitling. You can wear it anywhere you want. But the Superocean aesthetic is generally more attuned to action than the stiff sleeves of a dress shirt.
This is the perfect example of what we were talking about when we said Superoceans often have bolder colors. The yellow dial on this stunning piece is absolutely beautiful to look at. In fact, it’s hard not to look at, given that this is a 48mm watch. It’s very present.
The look is classic modern Superocean, with the big luminous hands and markers. The rotating bezel is large and looks like it was originally built for a tank cannon.
The thing about Breitlings replica watches is that they’re actually built to perform the functions they’re meant for, which means that this guy sports a 300 meter water resistance and a solid rubber strap. It’s meant to dive, though whether you’re diving into the ocean or into a rich social event is up to you.
One great thing about Superoceans is that they come in a variety of sizes. There are 48s, 46s, 44s, and this guy, a svelte 42mm masterpiece. Okay, well, maybe 42mm isn’t exactly svelte, but it’s a lot less imposing than the previous 48.
All of the modern trappings are present on this smaller version, as well. You’ve got the luminous hands and markers, the rotating bezel, the rubber strap, etc. The dial on this Superocean is a more subtle oceanic blue, a dark and rich color that invites attention rather than demanding it.
What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that this dive watch is rated for an astounding 500 meters of water resistance. You could probably go deep enough to find a sunken UFO in the Bermuda Triangle and still be able to read the beautiful luminescent dial.
The Superocean Heritage II is a throwback to the original Superoceans. You’ll notice that the dial is less “in your face” and modern looking, instead opting for a vintage look in the hands and markers.
Breitling is known for having dominated both air and sea with their brilliant Swiss luxury fake watches. The Navigator is often hailed as the greatest pilot watch out there, being worn by high-flying aces around the world. At a much lower altitude, the Superocean reigns supreme as one of the top dive watches on the market. And that’s for good reason.
First appearing in 1957, the Superocean was initially created for the purpose of equipping professional and military divers. The incredible build quality meant it could take the pressures of the depths without flinching, and the now classic look cut a dashing figure in the eyes of all who saw it. It wasn’t long before leisure divers and watch lovers alike began drooling over the design, and Breitling obliged by creating a legacy of diving watch excellence that has continued to this day.
We personally love the Breitling Superocean because it’s a lot more playful and daring than many of the brand’s other offerings. The dials are large and bold, the colors are often a little more eye-catching, and the look is more sporty than dressy.
