Breitling SuperOcean Heritage Review

Breitling SuperOcean Heritage Watch
The Breitling SuperOcean Heritage watch is the 21st century remodel of the iconic Heritage SuperOcean Chronometer. This watch is a must see in person, pictures do not do it justice. Breitling being no stranger to large watches offers this in a 46mm and a 38mm. The watch is very clean and crisp visually and comes in three different color options, black, blue, and bronze. The bronze version is surprisingly nice and would be great for an individual with a deep watch collection. Bronze would be a tough color to pull off daily, others watches would help with this. The big date window at the 6 o’clock position is a nice change of pace. The SuperOcean Heritage utilizes the Breitling Caliber 17 automatic movement, based off of an ETA 2824-2. The watch is C.O.S.C. certified with a water resistance of 200m. The Heritage is offered generally on either the Ocean Racer rubber strap or mesh bracelet. Both are some of the best in the industry and the mesh is arguably the best available. 

Pros - Crisp/Clean and easy to read, C.O.S.C. certified, great strap and bracelet options.

Considerations - For a dive watch the lume is lacking, especially no lume dot at the 12 o’clock position on the bezel.
