This year, Breitling has launched a new super ocean diving watch. Surprisingly, when Breitling changed the B word logo across the board, only the new Super Ocean, the logo did not change, and the winged logo will continue to be used on the new 2019 models.
Breitling’s new super ocean
Super Ocean is one of Breitling’s hottest watches in China. The comprehensive quality of Breitling Super Ocean is relatively high. It is certified by the observatory, plus a public price of more than 20,000 (steel case tape), which is lower than the general price of luxury diving watches of the same level. It is relatively close to the people, so people who buy it It has a large circulation capacity. In the depth of the domestic masses, it has basically become a popular diving watch alongside Rolex water ghosts, Omega seahorses and Blancpain.
Therefore, this year’s Super Ocean Update is a major change for players who like Breitling. The change of old and new will bring some changes to the circulation of Super Ocean. So today I want to highlight the changes in the new Super Ocean compared to the old one.

Why did Super Ocean not change the logo?
Breitling’s biggest change in recent years is to change the logo. Almost all watches have replaced the LOGO with a new single B logo. And this year’s new super ocean did not change, continue to use the previous wings of the B word. Regarding Breitling’s replacement of LOGO, there are many discussions and speculations among players, such as general watch replacement, sports watch does not change, and so on. Based on the situation of Super Ocean this year, I deliberately asked senior people inside Breitling, and gave a precise and reasonable explanation.
Two signs of Breitling.
As you know, the single B-character is actually the earliest symbol in Breitling history. Later, the familiar wing logo was redesigned after Breitling. In this logo change, every single watch that was born early in Breitling’s history, such as navitimer, and vintage models such as marine culture (the marine culture is a design that continued from 1957), has replaced the single B logo. In other words, if it is related to the history of Breitling, it will be replaced with a single B-logo. And like Super Ocean, this newly designed watch continued to use the wings logo. In a word, the retro historical line is a single B character; the modern line is a wing mark. What sign is determined by the historical stage of the birth of the watch.

What’s changed in the new Super Ocean?
This year’s new super ocean, compared to the old model, the appearance has changed a lot.
The first big change is the dial. Everyone is familiar with the old super ocean disk. Huge 1 to 12 digit time scales, inside the digit time scales, there is a circle of 13 to 24 small numbers. On the outer ring of the dial is a digital scale. The face of the old model looks more complicated. The new Super Ocean greatly simplifies the face of the plate, with long time scales on the surface and huge 6, 9, 12 time scales. The face is very simple and more modern.

Because Breitling Super Ocean has a variety of sizes from large to small, the contrast between the new and old disks on the large size model is actually not so obvious, and on the small 36 mm model, the contrast is very obvious. Because the 36 mm version is small in size, there are too many things on the old plate, and it seems crowded at the small size. And the new plate is very coordinated in small size.

The second change in the new Super Ocean is the bezel. We know that the bezel of the old Super Ocean is a rubber bezel. The numbers on the bezel are raised. The new Super Ocean has a new coated bezel. Although the Breitling official website and other introductions did not write about the bezel material in detail, I learned through understanding that it should be a new coating on the steel ring. The numbers on the new bezel are integrated with the bezel. Compared to the rubber ring.

The new Super Ocean movement has not changed, and continues to use Breitling 17 movement, which is an improved 2824 of Breitling. 38 hours power, certified by the observatory. Breitling watches are certified by the Observatory, and Breitling is also one of the largest households in Switzerland. So whether it is a Breitling self-produced movement or a general-purpose movement used by Breitling, the quality of the movement is relatively guaranteed. In addition, we would like to remind you that the Breitling self-produced watch has a five-year warranty and the universal watch has a two-year warranty. Super Ocean is 2 years old.
Breitling’s new Super Ocean 44mm version is a regular steel case.
The great thing about Breitling Super Ocean is that it’s very full size. Including 46 mm, 44 mm, 42 mm, 36 mm, from large 46 to neutral 36, from male to female, all covered, can be worn on any wrist. Full size like Super Ocean is very rare in luxury diving watches. This year’s new Super Ocean has added color matching. The 46mm steel shell is plated in black, ordinary steel, black, white, orange, dark blue, and light blue.
Price is a big advantage of Breitling Super Ocean.
The public price of various sizes of tape version is basically below 30,000.
46mm tape version 34600
44mm tape version 26000
42mm tape version 25200
36mm tape version 25200

To be honest, the price of Super Ocean is relatively low in luxury diving watches. Like the Omega seahorse, IWC marine timepieces, etc., the price alone is more expensive than the super ocean (water ghosts, 50 yuan will not say). In general, Super Ocean is a cost-effective watch, but the configuration of each diving watch is different, the price is high or low, you need to make a decision between price and configuration. Now the new Super Ocean is gradually on the market. I also looked at it on the weekends. Now that the new model has arrived, the amount will increase.

I think the advantage of Super Ocean is that the brand is strong, relatively cheap and durable (46 waterproof 2000 meters, 44 waterproof 1000 meters, 42 waterproof 500 meters), usually we wear a sports watch, just for a table-take-all, but also durable. But now some sports watches are more ‘delicate’ because of material problems. Super Ocean belongs to the kind of watch that is usually suitable for wearing at any time, easy to wear and practical.
