Breitling have released new information on two of their new innovative designs to their acclaimed Transocean and Superocean collections. We have exclusive pictures and spec information on both timepieces, streamed live from Basel 2015 itself. Pre-orders for these special Basel pieces are now being taken.
The Transocean Chronograph 1915 Limited Edition
The launch of the Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915 has finally arrived, honouring the brand’s first independent pushpiece. Beautifully sculpted, with a classy and non-fussy attractiveness, the traditional 2 o’clock pushpiece is contoured to run synergistically along the edge of the stainless steel casing, setting off its multi-toned silver dial and enhancing all those characteristics that we love about Breitling – a well-balanced dial, with a magnetising vintage vibe. Taking the development of the former Transocean models a step higher than we thought ever possible, this watch has a simpler two-register layout. 43mm diameters of plush retro design, this elegant new addition remains loyal to what we love about the brand. Equipped with a brand new manufactured calibre (the b14 comprised of a two-tiered, double column wheel system) and a new case, this limited edition timepiece of 1,915 pieces is water resistant up to 100 meters and bears an impressive 70 hour power reserve. The movement beats at 28.800 vph and is manually wound. This unique chronograph is available on a stainless steel bracelet or on the conventional brown leather strap version. The Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915 Limited Edition owns an undeniable striking appeal. Its sharp and fetching design catches the eye of any Breitling fanatic – an investment piece for the future, created to be adored.
The Superocean M2000 is simply out of this world…..
There are many divers’ watches on the market today that employ the use of a chronograph however very few can remain functional to depths of 2000 metres. Breitling has made it possible. Competent at resisting water whilst activating the patented magnetic pushpiece has now been made simple, reliable and achievable. The movement is the calibre 73 and is a “thermocompensated SuperQuartz” movement that is self winding. The watch also delivers a 1/10 of a second chronograph complication and a date indication. The case has a diameter of 46mm with a unidirectional rotating, ratcheted bezel and glareproof sapphire crystal glass on both surfaces. The Superocean is available with red, blue, black or green-ringed counters on a stunning “volcano black “ backdrop, exemplifying a memorable work of art from the brand. Strap options include the “Superocean” leather, Barenia leather, “Diver pro” rubber, the “Ocean racer” rubber or the stainless steel bracelet as seen within the “Professional” collection. The Black steel version is a Limited Edition and is set to 250 pieces yet only 30 will be entering the UK. Titled the “champion of abyssal depths”, this remarkable adaptation to Breitling’s field of diver masterpieces, illustrates their expert capabilities setting new benchmarks for the future of extreme underwater instruments.
More information on both Limited Edition pieces will be released shortly.
