Discover the depths of the ocean
The latest Superocean is stylish, powerful, and versatile. Breitling livened up the simple yet elegant design of the Superocean with chic colour accents. Clients have the choice between five different models: Superocean 42, Superocean 44, Superocean Chronograph II, Superocean Chronograph M2000, and Superocean Chronograph Steelfish. Admirers of simple watch dials will enjoy the Superocean 42 (Ref. A1736402), a considerably smaller Breitling model with a 42-millimetre-case. The watch face is comprised of characteristic hour numerals and is framed with a ratcheted bezel that is available in five different colours.
The watch face of the slightly larger Superocean 44 (Ref. A1739102), also offers a clear and simple design. The tasteful appearance does not do the phenomenal performance of the diving watch justice: the Superocean 44 is waterproof to 2,000 metres and is equipped with a helium escape valve, ensuring the watch’s endurance in the diving chamber after a dive.
Well-versed Breitling-collectors are often interested in earlier versions of the Superocean, e.g. the 42-millimetre-big Superocean (Ref. A17360), the Superocean Professional (Ref. A17045 or Ref. A17345), or the 41,5-millimetre-big Superocean (Ref. A17040 or Ref. A17340). The original versions differ greatly from today’s Superocean while impressing nonetheless with their robustness and strength. Today, these watches cannot be found new, but the second-hand market offers many interesting options for used Breitling wristwatches.
