Breiling, an institution, which stands for the ultimate technical precision, has been known as a symbol of fliers ever since its inception, in 1884. The aviation boom in the 20th century paved the way for the success of the brand, which is now synonymous with objects of precision and durability. The brand was founded by Leon Breitling, and took the market by storm with the invention of the Navimeter. Defining and redefining its initial aesthetic, is the brand, which has produced a variety of watches of incredible quality and unique designs. Born from the encounter of car making, and watch making was the Breitling for Bentley collection, which ‘asserted a new art of living.’ Other milestones in the history of Breitling are the inventions of the Navimeter collection, the Superocean collection, and the Transocean collections.
The Superocean II 42, also known as model number A1736402/BA28/136S/A18D.2, is a masterpiece that pays a tribute to the marine vocation. Designed for men with a bold style statement, this watch incorporates a unidirectional rotating bezel with a stainless steel case, which measures 42mm diameter. It displays large numerals, which are clearly visible even under water. Asserting a masculine edge, the watch also consists of cambered sapphire crystal, which is glare proof on both sides. With a luminescent triangle marker at 12 o’clock, a futuristic look is incorporated in the design. A date aperture is placed at 3 o’ clock position. The black dial of the watch is attached to a rubber strap for maximum comfort.
A chronometer-certified self winding movement, and a 40 hour power reserve, make the watch mechanically meticulous. A significant feature of the watch is that it is 500 meters water resistant, and a countdown of the last 15 minutes diving time, make the piece an ideal watch for divers. Not only is the watch futuristic in design, but also in its performance.
Traditionally a producer of aviation instruments, Breitling diversified into the field of divers’ watches with the SuperOcean collection in 1950s. Over time, the SuperOcean embraced the introduction of several modifications. In 1995, the Colt SuperOcean was launched to incorporate the high standards set by the Navy SEAL for its military divers. The exquisite level of technical superiority displayed by the Colt was amplified in the Colt SuperOcean Professional in 1998. Further developed by the SuperOcean Professional in 2000, Breitling’s success in this realm peaked with the 2010 SuperOcean collection.
The self-winding mechanical movements of most watches from the SuperOcean collection are chronometer certified from COSC for immaculate timekeeping. Exceedingly watertight, these watches uniformly provide complete protection from water damage up to varying depths, even going up to an unprecedented and patented 2000m with the SuperOcean Chronograph M2000. This particular model also records time up to one-tenth of a second. The case backs of all watches are screwed in with screw down crowns to ensure smooth functioning of the device even underwater. The watches are made pressure resistant with inbuilt helium valves. The dial sports three sub dials and date windows, for multifaceted functions. The sturdy 46mm case of each variant is protected by glare proof cambered sapphire crystal, to render it scratch-resistant. Each variant boasts unidirectional ratcheted bezels that are time marked to allow professional divers to keep track of their activities.
The aesthetic appeal of the SuperOcean collection lies in its oversized hands and bold Arabic numeral or stick appliques. Breitling offers a wide range of colours on the index markers and hands of the timepieces from the SuperOcean line, though the dials remain almost uniformly matte black. A choice in bracelets, from amongst Leather, Diver Pro, Ocean Racer, Professional III, and others, is offered for all models. Watches from this series are renowned for their sturdy and reliable build, along with their accurate timekeeping features.
