Breitling introduces the Superocean 44 Special

Luxury Swiss watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling, has introduced the newest member to its sought-after Superocean collection. Taking inspiration from the excellent readability of aviator-type watches, Breitling has unveiled the new Superocean 44 Special to its Middle East customers - their very own "ocean pilot".

Since 1957, Breitling's Superocean models have combined exceptional performance with a technical and professional style. This new model embodies the range's history with an original design, while maintaining its authenticity as a true diver's watch. The Superocean 44 Special features a black steel case, black dial bearing large luminescent indications and a black ceramic bezel, ensuring perfect readability for divers at depths of up to 1,000 m (3,300 ft).

The striking contrast between the all-black exterior and the white indications, accentuated by a luminescent coating, provides users with optimal readability in the darkness of the oceans. The oversized markers come with large baton-type hands, clearly distinguishing hours from minutes. There are different shaped hour-markers for five-minute intervals, quarters and 12 o'clock, and the bezel has a 60-minute scale, also highlighting five-minute intervals, quarters and 12 o'clock.

The sturdy satin-brushed black steel case, is fitted with a twin-gasket screw-locked crown, guaranteeing water resistance. A safety valve serves to equal out the differences in pressure both inside and outside the watch as the wearer changes depths. The brand-new rotating bezel in shiny black ceramic, a particularly resistant high-tech material, guarantees users an accurate dive-time count-off, while the ratcheted profile ensures an optimal grip even when wearing gloves.

The Superocean 44 Special is now available in Breitling Boutiques and stores across the Middle East, teamed with a black rubber strap featuring Breitling's signature and raised central ridge, or a row of holes. Equipped with a 44 mm-diameter case, the Superocean 44 Special houses a selfwinding movement officially chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the only precision and reliability benchmark based on an international norm.
