Celebrating Our 37th Year!

Breitling Superocean Replica Watch Review

The Early Breitling Superocean replica watches have become very collectable - the first two references, in good condition, are now high five-figure timepieces. This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Superocean and to celebrate this occasion, Breitling has released a new version of the watch, which looks back at the originals for its design elements, while at the same time technically looking ahead - including the movement, which is delivered to Breitling by Tudor (with modifications).

While Breitling still insists on calling the Superocean II an 'ocean pilot', the Breitling Superocean 44 Special replica is anything but. In addition to completing the above-mentioned required functions for a diver of this kind, the Special distinguishes itself from the standard Superocean II with a matt steel case finish, a more minimalist dial with square applied indices instead of the busy Arabic numerals, and a solid, ceramic edge characterized by its extremely smooth surface and extremely sharp, grippy cartels.

This ceramic border is not a new technology for replica Breitling, because we've already seen the black version on the first Blacksteel 44 Special , and a similar version of the deep, matte blue that has been introduced on this Boutique-Edition replicamagic. In general, the single color of the ring looks great, but it remains to be seen whether a ceramic bezel (usually the first errant point of contact for a dive watch against a board mitt, diving ladder or door frame) will stand up to the frequent impacts that are characteristic for the life of a worn tool watch.

Traditional bezel rings of the dive replica watch pick up these bumps and dings by using a sturdy metal bezel with a replaceable liner in which the numbered dividing lines are glued. So although this might be an aesthetic design choice rather than a functional one, we will be the first to admit both ceramic color options fit perfectly with the steely aesthetics of the new 44 Special and one that we like to see on the wrist.

Changes in the Superocean replica Heritage II about the I are subtle but important. What Breitling really did is the 'aging' of the Superocean Heritage, which was about materials and parts about design. The Superocean Heritage was and remains a solid money maker for Breitling replica, one of the most popular and attractive models. The name Superocean is derived from a historic diving replica watch with the same name that was released about 70 years ago by replica Breitling, whose look was "revived" in the Superocean Heritage. As a "vintage-inspired" dive watch, the Superocean Heritage lived with more "modern" (in design) dive watches from Breitling like the (not "Heritage") Superocean. Because we have photos of both Generation I and Generation II in this review, the fastest way to identify them is by looking at the hour and minute hand. If the hour hand is halved and the minute hand has a more dramatic decrease, this is the Generation II.

The Superocean Heritage II is a bit "pro worthy" but you can see that the design decisions are at the expense of aesthetics. So let us first discuss how the unidirectional rotating edge of the Superocean Heritage II differs from that of the original model. This is one of the two main visible ways in which the Superocean Heritage I and II models all differ from each other. While doing the video section of the review for the Superocean Heritage 46, I mentioned that the most "age-giving" part of the watch in terms of its product life was the anodized aluminum / coated steel (I'm not sure about it specific metal used) insert frame. Ceramic edges are now much more preferred and are simply appreciated because they have colors that last forever and are extremely scratch-resistant. With the Superocean Heritage II, Breitling replica watch has correctly upgraded the frame from a metal version to a ceramic version and is available in black, brown and blue.

Because of the closed back of the housing you can not see the movement, which is a bit of a shame, but you can be sure that it is there from the execution of the watch. Certainly, this chronometer-certified caliber was expressed in daily use - I expect the watch to give a little bit in the course of time, but at least during the period of a week that I wore it, it got exactly one second a day, some stellar performance on every standard. Broader use by Breitling of this movement (and I can only assume that they will use it somewhere else in the next year or two elsewhere) would mean a major change in the way potential buyers evaluate the value proposition of Breitling watches.

This is a great watch. It is my second Breitling replica and so far I have not let you down. Nice to have a different color. I have bought several belts for versatility. Keep the time well for about three days on one wind up. Very well built as usual and a good watch to swim with the right strap-on .. I was reluctant to buy over the internet, but I relied on the pressure of the "replicamagic" on their suppliers and it worked well for me on t!
