The Breitling Superocean Heritage II

The replica Breitling Superocean watches have gone on to become very collectible, there are two models which are still in good condition, are now high five-figure timepieces. This year is the 60th anniversary of the Superocean, and to mark the occasion, Breitling has launched a new version of the replica watch which looks back to the originals for its design cues, while at the same time looking very much forward from a technical standpoint – including the movement. fake Breitling
There are two sizes for your choice of the new model – 42mm and 46mm, with a 46mm chronograph available as well – and all three models are available in brown, blue, or black. We had the blue and brown models in the office and the brown model on a strap was the one I wore for a week. The blue version on a steel mesh bracelet is just as handsome as the brown model, and for the same reasons: clarity of design and great depth of color. I can only assume the black model would be just as handsome, although the rich colors of the dials and bezels for the blue and brown models is hard to pass up, if you’re going to go for color in a dive watch at all.
The strap on the brown version is rubber-lined leather and it’s very thick, giving every impression of being nearly as durable as the steel mesh bracelet. Ordinarily, I would prefer something a little less heavy, but as the 42mm Heritage Superocean watches are 14.35mm thick, the strap works well and actually harmonizes better with the overall feel of the watch than would be a thinner strap.  Breitling watches
The buckle has a micro-adjustment feature, which lets you fine-tune the fit, although basic strap length is a little difficult to handle, as it requires cutting the strap to the approximate correct length first. The micro-adjustment mechanism is simple to use: Just push in to unlock it, and you can shift the point of attachment of the strap inside the buckle to suit.
Both the heavy rubberized leather strap and folding clasp are very sturdy and well made. Apart from legibility, though, it struck me during the time I wore it as a genuinely beautiful watch, with a sort of elegance I’ve missed in some of Breitling’s more recent creations. The shapes of the hands and indexes, as well as the warm richness and saturation of the dial and bezel colors, goes to show you that making an aesthetically nuanced tool watch needn’t be an oxymoron (I still can’t quite believe I’m describing a fake Breitling as “aesthetically nuanced,” but there you have it).
Owing to the closed caseback, you can’t see the movement, which is a bit of a shame, but you can definitely tell it’s there from the performance of the watch. Of course, this chronometer-certified caliber came through in daily use – I’d hope the watch to drift a little on its rate over time but at least during the one week period I wore it, it gained precisely one second per day, which is stellar performance by any standard. Wider use by Breitling of this movement (and I can only assume they’ll deploy it elsewhere in the next year or two) would make an important change in how potential buyers calculate the value proposition of the replica Breitling watches.
