Breitling is known for making watches that make a statement. The appearance of their watches is bold, yet classy and elegant. And the Breitling Superocean Heritage II is nothing short of this. It’s a watch that you and other aficionados will admire.

Chronicles of the Breitling Superocean Heritage II

Breitling was founded in 1884 by Leon Breitling in St. Imier, Switzerland. The brand has made an indelible mark in history. In 1957 astronaut and American naval officer, Scott Carpenter, took the first Swiss chronograph to space. Their watches are well known for their durability and reliability.

The Breitling Superocean Heritage 2 B20 automatic pays homage to the brand’s earlier 1957 chronometer. The aesthetics are similar. However the watch features an improved B20 self-winding movement, manufactured in partnership by Tudor. It’s based on the Tudor calibre MT5612.

As you open the box, one takes note of the leather finish. The steel rivets that allow for a rugged look. Inside the watch rests in a brown leather case that’s also convenient for travel. Paperwork with trademark yellow pages, a thick plastic warranty card and certificate of authenticity lie beneath the case.

The watch has a screw-in steel case​ back, a 70-hour power reserve and is water resistant to 200 meters. The Superocean comes in two sizes, 42 and 46 mm respectively. The stainless steel case is 14 mm thick. The Milanese style matching mesh gives it a brilliant finish. Truly, it sets the watch apart from other dive watches.

Scratch And Shock Resistant

Breitling’s Superocean Heritage 2 B20 automatic has a radiant blue ceramic unidirectional bezel. Divers like it because of its scratch and shock resistance. The dome is composed of sapphire glass, glare-proofed on both sides.

There are no unnecessary indices, glancing at the dial. Simply put, this Breitling watch is a real statement-maker. The minimalist bezel does not have any numerical markings. The dial is sleek, with luminescent markers on the hour and minute hands. Plus that’s the case with all hour markers, except for 12, 3, 6 and 9.

True Gentleman’s Watch

The watch does feature a date window at the 6 o’ clock position and has a screw-down crown without any crown guards. The knurling on the unidirectional rotating bezel is done tastefully and allows for easy rotation during deep dives.

The Breitling Superocean Heritage II comes in Milanese​ mesh and rubber strap options. Without exception it’s a gentleman’s watch. It is sure to be a member of your Breitling heritage collection. And by putting it on your wrist, you’ll be proud to sport it from midday adventure to evening soiree. After all, you will be making a bold statement with that iconic italicized ‘B’.
