A Week On The Wrist: The Breitling Superocean Heritage II Watch [Video]

Take note; what you wear on your wrist holds a lot of weight in terms of overall style. Thankfully one of our favorite sites Hodinkee covers the culture of watches immaculately. In their newest feature they cover the Breitling Superocean Heritage II watch.

“The 1950s were a watershed decade for dive watches, if you’ll forgive the pun. Within a few years of each other, three different companies released three of the most enduring classics of the modern dive watch idiom: the Rolex Submariner, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, and the Omega Seamaster 300. All had certain essential features in common – excellent visibility, rotating timing bezels, good water resistance – and each has gone on to become an icon for the company that made it. In 1957, another classic of the era debuted: the Breitling Superocean, which was released in both chronograph and non-chronograph versions.”

We love the copper bronze color profile with this piece. Priced just shy over $5,300.00, this watch is a great option for anyone looking to purchase their first Breitling.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. Cheers!
