NEW: Breitling Showcases Redesigned Super Ocean
The popular Breitling SuperOcean replica swiss watches has been redesigned, inspired by the original SuperOcean slow motion in the 1960s.
As with the "new" Breitling watches led by Georges Kern, the redesign is a sizeable version of the new SuperOcean collection - available in 4 different sizes: 46mm, 44mm, 42mm and 36mm A total of 16 new items in size. The collection also includes 3 case materials - Steel, Bronze and Steel and Gold.
All watches are inspired by the original SuperOcean Slow Motion of the 1960s, but incorporate modern elements – thin ceramic bezels with metal rehaut, coloured dial options and new movements.

The design inspiration seems to be a fair reinterpretation of the code used in the original slow motion, drawing the essence of DNA. But there are many details that change in poetic freedom. The original slow motion case was 42mm in diameter, very large when it was released in 1965, and housed a heavily modified Venus 188 chronograph movement. The new SuperOcean collection is a three-hand chronograph, but the original slow motion is a chronograph. The original had no seconds hand, which was unusual for a chronograph, which led to the watch being called "slow motion" because the needle-like central hand was the minute accumulator, not the seconds chronograph hand. It gets its name because it makes a full turn in an hour. Design cues come from the slow-motion bezel and the alternating light and dark pattern of the central medallion.replica Jacob & Co.

The diving bezel is now a ceramic inlay for the operation of the large rehaut. Interestingly, this diver's bezel is unidirectional in all dimensions except 46mm, which has a new patented bezel locking mechanism that makes it a diver's watch. These watches are all water resistant to 300m, or 200m in slow motion.

While the SuperOcean isn't a chronograph, it's free in its design, but it makes up for aesthetic cues. Retaining the use of a similar blocky hour hand, the minute hand takes the form of the original minute counter – a slender hand with a giant snowflake square dot (lollipop style). The new slender, needle-like continuous central seconds hand is equipped with a proper lollipop. This lollipop replaces and pays homage to the "dot", the circular window at 6 o'clock, displayed in different colors (black, solid dot, small dot) depending on whether the minute-based chronograph is enabled, paused or closure. Indices and hands have plenty of SuperLuminova padding.

The entire collection uses a Breitling Calibre 17 as the automatic movement, which is basically an ETA calibre 2824-2 with a Breitling-branded rotor. It is said that this movement is assembled and adjusted by Breitling and belongs to the observatory level. The power reserve of the B17 is 38 hours.
release news In the 1960s, the nascent sport of scuba diving was all the rage, inspired by the adventures of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau. In diving, timekeeping is everything – almost exclusively in minutes – and Breitling wanted not only to provide the best tool watch for the task, but to give it a sense of style.
To create this early SuperOcean, Breitling designers eliminated any redundant features that did not support the life-saving needs of underwater divers. A high-contrast dial ring has been introduced in the key minute scale. For readability, subtle indexing in favor of thick glow sticks is employed. And, in its most daring move, Breitling eliminated the seconds hand because divers...don't really need it. In its place is a revolutionary minute chronograph, dubbed "slow motion" because it takes an hour to complete a full rotation of the dial.
Today, Breitling unveiled a new SuperOcean that harks back to the idea of a simplified tool high quality replica watches in slow motion. While the collection has been revised to meet the needs of the modern wearer (the seconds hand is a must, of course), a keen eye will spot several design nods to the original.
The collection was unveiled to media, retailers and influencers at the Wheels & Waves surf and motorcycle festival in Biarritz. The event follows a day of ocean-themed events, with surprise visits from European surfers and screen celebrities. In attendance were surfers Andrew Cotton, Jérémy Florès and Natxo Gonzalez, as well as actors Guillaume Canet from France and Álvaro Morte from Spain.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern said at the festival: “Most dive watches share some similarities in appearance, but slow motion always stands out from the crowd. A modern take on a classic new Superocean."
born for the sea
The coloured dials of the collection are available in four sizes (46, 44, 42 and 36mm), paired with three different case metals – steel, steel-gold and bronze. The special alloy used in the 44mm and 42mm bronze versions has excellent corrosion resistance, but still develops a subtle sheen over time, making the watch even more unique. Two strap options (the sporty rubber strap and the new three-row metal bracelet) have a folding clasp that can be fine-tuned up to 15mm for easy wearing over rashes and wetsuits.
Besides looking good, the new Superocean is also a technological marvel. Water-resistant to 300 m (1000 ft), the generous hands and indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova® for excellent readability underwater. Its scratch-resistant ceramic inlaid bezel means it will never wear out or fade. For safety, most sizes of the bezel are unidirectional, while the 46mm bezel is bidirectional with a patented lock. The watch is also shock, sand and salt resistant. Its automatic Breitling Calibre 17 comes with a two-year warranty and approximately 38 hours of power reserve.replica Patek Philippe twenty 4 Watches

The same goes for the high-contrast minute scale. Fans will also remember the "dot", a circular window at 6 o'clock that displays different colors depending on whether the minute chronograph is started, paused or closed. In the new Superocean, a circle near the tip of the second hand winks at this much-loved feature.
Serious show, laid-back atmosphere
The Breitling Surfer Squad, consisting of Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore and Sally Fitzgibbons, is once again the face of the new Superocean collection. The watch collection includes the special edition Superocean Automatic 42 Kelly Slater. Co-designed with the surf champion, this timepiece features a jaw-dropping orange dial and army green rubber strap. The color scheme was inspired by the watch that Slater's father used to surf.

Speaking of the collaboration, Slater said: "I've been building watches with Breitling for the past few years, but this one in particular is very personal. It was inspired by my late father who had an orange dial. Watch, he’s been wearing it to the surf for as long as I can remember. Green and orange together are the color scheme of the airbrush on planks that I’ve loved since I was a kid. That combination has always stuck with me.”
In the new Superocean, there is something for everyone. Collectors will recognize the power of slow motion, water sports enthusiasts will appreciate its technical features, and style-conscious folks will gravitate to its versatility from day to night, beach to boardroom. The new Superocean perfectly balances nostalgia for its heritage while taking a new wave.luxury replica watches
