Superocean 44 Special

A diver with a steely temperament

The Watch Quote™ - June 23rd, 2017



With its sturdy steel case, its ultra-legible dial and its rotating high-tech ceramic bezel, the new Superocean 44 Special plunges securely to a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft). This special series with its technical and original style is available in black or blue versions.



On land, in the air or beneath the sea: Breitling shares the spirit of performance wherever great feats are at stake. Since 1957, the Superocean line has been dedicating the finest technology to serving diving professionals and devotees of aquatic adventures.



Among all the Breitling instruments dedicated to conquering the depths, the Superocean 44 Special is distinguished by its rotating bezel made of ceramic, an ultra- hard and scratch-resistant material designed for the most extreme missions. This black or blue bezel, matching the dial, is teamed with a steel case that is satin-finished on top and polished on its sides and crown. The eminently masculine, technical and powerful look continues on the steel bracelet with its extremely rugged construction, or on the black or blue rubber strap with raised central motif, Breitling signature or a row of holes.



As far as the rest is concerned, the Superocean 44 Special features all the distinctive characteristics of an authentic professional diving watch. Water resistance to a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft). A twin-gasket screw-locked crown. A security valve serving to balance out pressure differences inside and outside the case. Large luminescent indications ensuring excellent legibility. Baton-type hands clearly distinguishing hours from minutes. Differently shaped hour-markers for five-minute intervals, quarters and 12 o’clock.



A bezel with a unidirectional rotation system avoiding any inadvertent extension of dive times, as well as a ratcheted profile ensuring simplified handling, even with gloves. A seconds hand with a red tip and a small luminescent triangle serving at-a-glance checks that the movement is operating at any given time. Not forgetting a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides to enhance legibility in the heat of the action.



Inside this instrument with its steely temperament beats a mechanical selfwinding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the ultimate token of precision and reliability.
