Impressive, beautiful, and precise: these are just some of the few descriptions watch connoisseurs have given the Breitling brand over the years. The company is initially renowned for its ability to manufacture timepieces for pilots, navigators, and other aeronautics professionals. Over the years though, the brand has diversified.

Here’s where the Breitling Superocean Chronograph comes into the picture.

Any watch connoisseur will be delighted with what the Breitling Superocean Chronograph II watch has to offer. It is the latest version of the company’s widely popular Superocean timepiece. The new model features the same eye-catching design, unmatched performance, and reliability of its predecessor – only with more fashionable features. The Breitling Superocean Chronograph II is available on a limited edition only as well.

The Breitling Superocean Chronograph II Watch is made of stainless steel. It has 44mm case with screw-lock crown and push-pieces. It is important to note that the push-pieces needs to be unlocked before it can be used. The case also contains a valve that can balance out the pressure inside and outside, providing better performance. It is water resistant to up to 500 meters.

Avid divers can bring this timepiece to their most exciting expeditions without a problem. In fact, Breitling Superocean Chronograph II is one of the favorite diving watches of recreational and even professional divers. The watch contains a unidirectional rotating bezel that can be useful. It is made of red rubber so it catches onlooker attention more readily than earlier versions of the Breitling Chronograph.

The same red color is used for the chronograph second hand, the counter ring, and the date window. All these give Breitling Superocean Chronograph II an immediate impact. The red dial offers more than just aesthetics though. It also provides easy readability. Luminous hour-markers and oversized hands further characterize this timepiece. The dial is protected by glare-proof sapphire crystal.

This amazing timepiece is powered by the Breitling Calibre 13. It is a self-winding movement containing 25-jewel movements. This calibre beats 28,000 vibrations each hour, offering superior precision and reliability. The Breitling Superocean Chronograph II has a COSC chronometer certification as proof of its high performance. It is available in both Barenia leather and rubber straps. There is also an option to choose one with red edges on the leather to further match the design of the timepiece.
