Breitling launched its Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition watch in Bali.
Working with the conservation group Ocean Conservancy, Breitling organized a beach cleanup to celebrate the launch of the chronograph, which is limited to 1000 pieces. The Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition watch celebrates not only the partnership between Breitling and Ocean Conservancy, but also their shared commitment to helping maintain a healthy ocean and clean beaches. Breitling is participating in Ocean Conservancy’s cleanup programs to protect the health of the ocean and maintain trash-free seas.
The chronograph, which is powered by a Breitling Caliber 13 mechanical movement, features an ultra-hard scratch- and shock-resistant unidirectional rotating bezel with a luminescent central dot at 12 o’clock, a particularly useful feature for divers. This dot, as well as the minute and hour hands, are coated with Super-LumiNova® and emit a blue light instead of the standard green. This color variation complements the design of the watch, whose silver-colored dial is enhanced by a blue “Superocean” inscription. There are also blue accents and a blue central second hand as well as tone-on-tone subdials with blue or nickel- plated accents.
The 44-millimeter stainless-steel chronometer is presented with a pair of NATO straps made of ECONYL® yarn, an innovative material repurposed from nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets from oceans around the world. The straps are extremely durable, and the ECONYL® yarn material can be recycled indefinitely. The watch is presented on a blue-striped satin NATO strap and is delivered with an additional plain blue satin NATO strap. The packaging is also made from 100% recycled material.
The Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition timepiece is part of one of watchmaking’s greatest legacies, but it is even more than that: it is a beautifully timed call to action, reminding each of us that we can all play an important role in efforts to maintain healthy oceans and clean beaches. A portion of the sales of the watch will be donated to Ocean Conservancy and its global fight against ocean pollution.
