Superocean Chronograph II

The Superocean sees red

The Watch Quote™ - May 16th, 2012



Ultra-technical, ultra-sturdy and water-resistant to 500 m (1,650 ft), the Superocean Chronograph has already conquered land and sea thanks to its striking appearance and its peerless performances. Breitling now introduces it in a limited edition further accentuating its powerful character – a new alliance of audacity, style and functionality.



Its stand-out feature lies in the unidirectional rotating bezel, an indispensable companion for the finest feats in deep waters, which appears clad in red rubber – offering a superb touch of vivid color echoed on the chronograph sweep seconds hand, the counter rings, the date window and the model’s signature.



Issued in a 2,000-piece limited numbered edition, this super- diver with its youthful and dynamic style houses a high-performance selfwinding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). The highly readable 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 a champion of security equipped with a screw-locked crown and pushpieces 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. It comes with a choice of steel bracelet, a strap in rubber or Barenia leather, or the all-new Superocean leather strap with red edges to match its bezel.
