In the luxury replica watch space, Breitling is best known for manufacturing watches and chronographs inspired by the world of aviation. Yet, some may not realize that in addition to making pilot-ready timepieces, Breitling has also had a long history of producing dive watches.
Both versions sported large-for-the-era 38mm cases topped with rotating concave black bezels marked with 5-minute intervals to track underwater immersion times. Not just bold in style but also robust in design, the maiden Superocean watches boasted a water resistance of 200 meters.
Typical of the dive watch style, Breitling equipped the 1950’s Superocean watches with black dials with plenty of luminescent accents for optimal legibility in marine conditions. The Breitling Replica Watches center hands were particularly striking with an arrow-tipped hour hand and a sword-shaped minute hand. Plus, the watches came with steel mesh bracelets that could withstand prolonged exposure to water, salt, and sun.
The Breitling Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 46
The design inspirations of the modern versions are undeniably taken from the original 1950’s Superocean models, yet revamped for a contemporary audience. The Cheap Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 46 Replica is one of the models available within the new vintage-inspired Breitling collection. The Superocean Heritage II Chronograph comes with a generous 46mm case in stainless steel, which maintains the same 200-meter water resistance of the vintage Breitling ref. 807. Naturally, as a chronograph model, there’s the duo of pushers flanking the winding crown used to start, stop, and reset the stopwatch feature of the timepiece.
Sitting on top of the case is a unidirectional 120-click rotating bezel crafted in ultra-modern ceramic–offered in black, blue, or bronze. Modern-day dive Replica Watches China almost always have bezels that only go in one direction to prevent inadvertently underestimating how much time is spent underwater. And tough ceramic is a coveted material on current luxury sports watches due to its resistance to scratching, fading, and shocks.
There are several dial options available within the Breitling Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 46 AAA Replica Watches collection. Regardless of the color, there’s an ample amount of lume-coated details on the dial including the center hands that echo the ones found on the first Breitling Superocean chronograph. However, on the modern Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 46, the dial layout is different to the vintage model it pays tribute to.
For instance, there are three subdials positioned at 6, 9, and 12 o’clock to display the 12-hour counter, running seconds, and 30-minute counter. Furthermore, there’s the addition of the date window at 3 o’clock. Driving the Breitling Superocean Heritage II Chronograph 46 is the COSC-certified Breitling 13 automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve.
