Breitling unveils eye-catching new additions to Superocean collection - rainbow and turquoise dials

22 June 2024

By Peter Vossner

On occasion of With the Wheels and Waves surf-and-motorcycle festival in Biarritz, Breitling unveils two eye-catching additions to the Superocean collection.

The first is the Superocean Automatic 42 and 36 rainbow-dial editions, and the second is a 44 mm turquoise-dial Superocean now with a tone-on-tone strap.

These watches draw inspiration from the legendary SuperOcean Slow Motion of the 1960s and 1970s, which simplified the dive watch into its most essential elements.

This simplification included a bold, high-contrast minute scale on the dial ring, chunky luminescent baton indexes and “paddle” hands for easy readability under the sea, and the innovative removal of the seconds hand, replaced by a minutes-based chronograph. This chronograph was nicknamed the “Slow Motion” because it took an hour to complete a full rotation.

Today’s Superocean retains the spirit of this practicality while reintroducing the seconds hand and integrating modern features for contemporary wearers.

The collection once again stands out with the unique rainbow-dial models with hour markers and hands coated in a brilliant gradient of Super-LumiNova® hues — yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, red, and orange — which glow in an array of shades in low light.

These models are available in four vibrant 42 mm stainless-steel versions with rubber straps in turquoise, aquamarine, orange, and yellow, and a sophisticated 36 mm version in white combined with a stainless-steel and 18 k red gold case.

The 44 mm turquoise-dial model extends the colorful theme. Previously available on a black strap, it now sports a tone-on-tone turquoise rubber bracelet, providing a striking contrast with its black ceramic-inlayed bezel. The watches are built for action and leisure, with sporty rubber straps with micro-adjustment clasps, and polished, scratch-resistant ceramic bezel inserts.
