Breitling Superocean Heritage 46 Luxury Watch Review

Watchuwant is now WatchBox! Subscribe for the best luxury watch videos. The Breitling Superocean Heritage 46mm channels the spirit of Breitling's pioneering 1950s and 1960s dive watch classics. Based on the style benchmark of the first Breitling model 1004 Superocean, the Superocean Heritage is modern dive watch whose bloodlines are swimming with sea salt. Since 2007, Breitling has produced the Superocean "Heritage" line alongside its standard Superocean models in order to satisfy collectors who prefer the size and durability of modern watches with the style and enduring appeal of time-tested vintage designs. Inspired by the circa-1958 Breitling model 1004, the first Superocean dive watch. That classic's simple dial, legibility, and distinctive "broad arrow" hour hand come roaring back to life in the Superocean Heritage 46mm's imposing steel case. The new watch's minimalist lugs, simple indexed bezel, and "Ocean Racer" mesh bracelet complete the revival. Breitling's Ocean Classic bracelet deserves special mention. While the Superocean Heritage 46mm wears wonderfully on a smaller (sub 6.5") wrist, the comfort and precise fit of the mesh bracelet is extraordinary. This is the most comfortable metal bracelet of any kind to be offered on any current watch at any price point. Yes, it's that good. The Ocean Classic's supple sensations allow it to rival the most tender of calf skin straps, but it retains the durability of all but the most overbuilt metal sports watch bracelets. Inside the 46mm stainless steel case, Breitling's Superocean Heritage features a COSC-certified Swiss Chronometer Caliber 17. The automatic movement is based on the bombproof ETA 2824, and it features a stop seconds feature to permit precise synchronization to a reference time such as an atomic clock.
