2014 New Breitling Superocean Chronograph Steelfish Watch

by Administrator | post a comment

Legendary Swiss watch brand Breitling has just unveiled the new Superocean Chronograph Steelfish, a special series combining the renowned performance of its Superocean diving watch range with a new sporting and technical look in a chronograph format. While Breitling, founded in 1884 in St. Imier, Switzerland, is best known for its aviation- and navigation-oriented timepieces, the Superocean models demonstrate the brand’s ability to master the ocean depths as well.
2014 New Breitling Superocean Chronograph Steelfish Watch The new stainless steel Chronograph Steelfish is water-resistant to 500 m (1,650 feet) and has oversize numerals and day-date windows for easy readability below the waves. As with all Breitling timepieces, its self-winding Breitling Caliber 13 chronograph movement is officially chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). The most distinctive feature of the new model is its broad ratcheted bezel featuring black rubber-encased numerals and markings, as well as oversize twin day-date windows.

The automatic movement is COSC-certified (as are all Breitling movements), and is known as the Caliber 13. Tucked away as it is in the 44mm stainless steel case, it should prove reliable (and well-protected). While the images we’ve currently got show the black dial, there will also be blue and silver dials available, along with some rubber strap options. Pricing for the bracelet version is $6,250, with the three rubber strap options coming ranging from $5,750 to $6,050.
Overall, this looks to be a cleanly-designed and well-balanced watch. While the inverted panda-style watch is, of course, in a design camp all of it’s own, I can’t help but to pick up an almost Sinn-like feel from the watch, I think in large part due to the day/date layout with the text underneath it. Perhaps that’s not so much of a bad thing, as it does differentiate the Breitling Superocean Chronograph Steelfish a bit from other tool divers.
