Yes, this is a diver watch from Breitling, and some of you might know those models. Nevertheless, Swiss watchmaker decided to refresh lineup. Changes might be noticed in form of different bezel, which forms almost smooth surface with sapphire glass. Note that it features ceramic insert, which should be durable enough for this model.Indices and hands mimic the same elements on original model. Well, I don’t remember how many times I’ve mentioned that almost all big manufacturers decided to switch on nostalgic mode. Here everything seems to be in place, there are no completely off elements, and even hands contribute to luxury look of Breitling Superocean Heritage.
Nevertheless, all those features are made for eye pleasure, and the main change is hidden in this polished steel case. New model is actually first to benefit from Breitling partnership with Tudor. Yes, inside you will find movement, which is based on Tudor MT5612 and named as Manufacture Caliber 20. Don’t search for any writings that will actually mark this cooperation – there is nothing written about it on the case back.
Breitling Superocean Heritage should be available in two size versions as well as in chrono model. Even though this is a diver watch with 200 m water protection, I doubt that somebody will be smart enough to go under water with those. It was interesting to see union between two big companies, and I wonder what model will surprise us on the next Baselworld.
