New model brings completely amazing waterproof level – up to 1000m. One can say that such timepiece will come handy for real divers, not only as addition to your collection. Moreover, Breitling Superocean 44 Special features new materials, so let’s check exterior first. The main change is in bezel, which is now ceramic. This part will be available in two color – black or blue with matching dial. Manufacturer claims that it is extremely scratchproof, but be sure not to drop it on the floor. We all know what happens with this material after rough landing. I was surprised to see that simple stainless steel is used for casing. Why not to employ the same material as we saw on recent Avenger? Divers would appreciate such lightweight addition. As for the today’s version, case features satin finish on the top and polished sides. Quite an interesting combination, right? It might be looking good, but it’s interesting to see scratch resistance…
Of course, crown is screw-locked, what is a must for diver watch. Moreover, dial was revamped in order to be easily readable. As you can see on the photos, now there are big hour markers with luminous layer. Note that 5-minute intervals come in different shape, what should also contribute to readability.

In this steel case Swiss watchmaker decided to install Caliber 17. This movement is COSC certified, and should provide decent precision. Don’t forget that such masterpiece comes waterproofed and should be fine up to 1000m. Of course, this is a self-winding mechanism.
New watch should be available immediately. Would do we have in total? Nice diver with decent waterproof. Nevertheless, it’s quite surprising to see that watchmaker decided to resort to steel. They have innovative materials, and it would be cool to have them in the new models well. Who knows, maybe it’s not that great for diving? Nevertheless, if you are fine with described features, you will be also able to choose between two dial colors.
