The Breitling Superocean 44 Special made its debut a year ago, but it is notorious because it is still one of the brand’s more cohesive authentic diving watches, which appeared within a few release cycles, which is a bit regrettable . However, despite the footnotes appearing in the 2016 release of Breitling, the 44th Special Edition is clearly doing a good job, enough to prove the release of two more editions. These new models were previously only used on Breitling’s invisible Blacksteel PVD surface. These watch cases have frosted stainless steel cases and are available with black or blue dials.
The Superocean II watch with a rated life of 1000m is slightly deeper (five times better) than Breitling’s entry-level automatic Colt sports watch, and can provide the full set of modern features that many luxury tool watch fans desire (crazy depth level, roll Spend a one-way bezel, blinding luminosity, and even a valve that releases helium), while recalling the ultra-manliness and military-inspired aesthetics that define the Military Avengers series.
Although Breitling still insists on calling Superocean II the “Ocean Pilot”, the Breitling Superocean 44 Special is nothing. In addition to checking the above-mentioned essential functions for similar divers, the “Special Edition” is also different from the standard Superocean II. It uses a frosted stainless steel case, a simpler dial, and a square application index instead of busy Arabic numerals, and a solid ceramic bezel, with a unique smooth surface and very sharp serrations.
The said ceramic bezel is not a new technology of Breitling, because we have already seen a black variant on the first Blacksteel 44 Special, and a similar deep matte blue is also used on this boutique Chronoliner. Generally speaking, the single color of the bezel looks great here, but it remains to be seen whether the ceramic bezel (usually the first wrong contact point of the diving watch against the ship’s side, diving ladder or door frame) depends on the worn Frequent influence of tool watch life.
The traditional diving watch bezel eliminates these bumps and dings by using a sturdy metal bezel and replaceable inserts, where a numbered dividing line is pasted on the insertable insert. Therefore, although this may be an aesthetic choice rather than a practical choice, we will be the first to admit it. Both ceramic color options are well suited to contrast with the steel aesthetic on the new 44 Special, and we look forward to seeing it on the wrist.
Compared with the standard Superocean II, the new Breitling Superocean 44 Special is more rigorous in execution. It can keep pace with Tudor Pelagos or the 2014 Rolex Sea Dweller 4000. Both have the same clinical significance in contrast and texture. The increased contrast of the new stainless steel case is welcome because previous Blacksteel versions tended to overwhelm the wrist, like most all black wholesale copy watches. As mentioned earlier, the end result is one of the more cohesive and purpose-built divers in Breitling’s catalog, but a completely modern and masculine diver, it doesn’t seem to be troublesome to remind you.
The inner tank of the Breitling Superocean 44 Special remains unchanged-the interior still beats Breitling’s Calibre 17, which is an automatic movement based on the ETA 2824 chronometer, with 25 jewels and a power reserve of about 42 hours.
Breitling Bentley Supersports B55 watch
The new Bentley Continental Supersports is a 2.5-ton luxury four-seater sports car that can move from zero to 60 in 3.4 seconds. To celebrate the launch of apparently the fastest grocery store in the world, Breitling launched the Supersports B55 watch, a limited-edition smartwatch made with Breitling’s proprietary Connected technology and features a series of features specifically designed for drivers . Presumably, this would mean that those with a 700-horsepower coupe also climbed to the top at an alarming speed of 209 miles per hour.
Breitling and Bentley have been sitting in the front row since the British automaker launched the most powerful car to date, the Continental GT in 2003. For nearly 15 years, this collaboration has produced some interesting but often disagreeing examples, usually due to their size or over-finishing (or both). That is to say, if you are the owner of Bentley or one of the loyal supporters of the brand, then you are likely to appreciate the remarkably similar design method of Breitling watches, which combines luxury and performance in a physically powerful chassis and objects It is popular with the latest technology. Again, very much like the mainland.
Drawing on the tips of the Exospace B55 launched in 2015, the Supersports B55 is not a smart watch, but it is really close – combining a Breitling-certified rechargeable, chronometer-certified Breitling movement with Bluetooth low energy technology , So that the wearer can control the watch through a dedicated smartphone application. This includes setting its seven alarms, cycling between various time zones or permanent calendar displays, and accessing the storage time measured by the timer function. As indicated by the definition of a smart save copy watch, the Breitling Bentley Supersports B55 can also display alerts and notifications and event reminders pushed from the mobile phone.
Just like the Bentley that this special Breitling deserves to be named, the Breitling Bentley Supersports B55 is also difficult to vague. It is made of a 46mm titanium case, waterproof to 100m, and is equipped with a thick rubber strap-specifications similar to the 2015 Exospace, but it has been re-skinned to match the design language of the Bentley world. These include a woven carbon fiber dial and a textured Hobnail bezel – details have become a hallmark of the partnership.
Exospace B55 has a set of timing functions specifically designed for the cockpit, while Breitling Bentley Supersports B55 will be most useful on the track because it is equipped with a flyback chronograph, chronograph timer and special electronic speedometer. In addition (to the potential customers of Gumball 3000), its “timed rally” function allows the chronograph to go deeper into several levels, and can record up to 30 rally stages, including departure date, start time and stage duration. It also has a “regular rally” timing function, which can be used by the rally driver to determine how much distance traveled in a given period of time to determine whether he or she is on the schedule, before or after the schedule.
It was only a matter of time before Breitling extended its Connected technology to another product in the catalog, but the semi-exclusiveness of the first follow-up event was a strange choice at best for the Bentley collaboration. Maybe Superocean Connected with diving memory, ascent alarm or water interval timer function is a more natural choice?
Breitling recently sold it to CVC Capital Partners for a high price of US$873 million and became news in the watchmaking industry. It seems to continue business as usual, producing limited edition core products for loyal fans. Last year, the brand also collaborated with Tudor (as we discussed when we watched the Breitling Superocean Heritage II watch), which won attention in producing several new chronograph movements, such as the Breitling B01 (which Tudor calls MT5813). Today, Breitling pays tribute to the long history of the aviation industry by releasing the Breitling Chronomat 44 Premium Edition and the Chronoliner B04 Premium Edition.
Breitling’s new Chronomat 44 Boutique Edition is the most different from the standard model. Its blue theme is the blue “Vietnamese mother-of-pearl” dial with a separately numbered “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” engraved on the back. For those who are not familiar with this model, Breitling Chronomat 44 is a 44mm stainless steel aviation watch with 500m water resistance and equipped with a B01 movement jointly designed by Breitling and Tudor. This is a COSC-certified 47 jewellery automaton core. The 70-hour power reserve provided by Breitling oscillates at a speed of 28,800bph (4Hz).
The Breitling Chronoliner B04 is the second in the limited-edition boutique series. This is a special version of their Chronoliner. Unlike the off-the-shelf version, it includes the B04 movement made by Breitling, in blue color, and similarly used alone The number “Special Delivery Pinup Girl” is engraved on the bottom cover. This 47-piece self-winding, self-winding B04 movement that can retain 70 hours of power is particularly worth mentioning because it can track the second and third time zones through the additional red hands and hands. The blue ceramic 24-hour bezel has also undergone blue treatment.
These limited edition great men watches represent Breitling’s efforts to add more varieties to its core products through the manufacture of movements, and are consistent with the aviation connections they have established. With these limited editions, loyal Breitling fans are reminded that despite the recent change of hands, Breitling as we know it is still growing and continuing to move forward.
