Breitling has unveiled the ultimate diving watch Superocean 44 Special, which features sturdy steel case, ultra-legible dial and rotating high-tech ceramic bezel. The new timepiece plunges securely to a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft).
The newest member of the Superocean family, dedicated the finest technology to serving diving professionals and devotees of aquatic adventures, 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 coupled with a steel case that is satin-finished on top and polished on its sides and crown. The watch is fitted with either steel bracelet with its extremely rugged construction, or the black or blue rubber strap with raised central motif.
Being a professional diving watch, the Superocean 44 Special is water resistant to a depth of 1,000 m (3,300 ft). It features a twin-gasket screw-locked crown and a security valve serving to balance out pressure differences inside and outside the case. Large luminescent indications ensuring excellent legibility, while baton-type hands clearly distinguishing hours from minutes.
A bezel is sophisticated with an unidirectional rotation system, to avoid any inadvertent extension of dive times, and 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.
Breitling Superocean 44 Special is powered by a mechanical selfwinding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the ultimate token of precision and reliability.
