BREITLING – Superocean 44 Special

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 the 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 glare-proofed on both sides to enhance legibility in the heat of the action.

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