What We Know
Over the last few years, Breitling has invested a tremendous amount of resources into establishing its connection with aviation. From 2003-2019 Breitling even operated a team of seven L-39 Albatros jets. After all, the sole reason for the founding of Breitling was to supply timing instruments to the aviation industry. But in the mid-‘50s Breitling started producing dive watches alongside their aviation line, and the models were called the AAA US replica Breitling SuperOcean watches. Production has steadily continued since then, with the SuperOcean becoming a big part of Breitling’s identity, albeit a secondary one. The design of the SuperOcean line has evolved over time, with designs that are completely contemporary, as well as modern designs that intentionally call to mind the models of yore.
Today, Breitling is releasing a slew of new high quality Breitling SuperOcean fake watches that are inspired by the company’s designs from the ’60s, particularly the SuperOcean Slow Motion. This peculiar model used a modified Venus 188 movement that propelled a chronograph hand around the dial once an hour. This hand could be read against a 60-minute indicator to track elapsed time. It was hard to tell if the chronograph was running at a glance, so an indicator was placed at six o’clock that let the wearer know if it was running or not. The collection comes in four case sizes: 46, 44, 42, and 36 mm. In those case sizes, there’s a range of dial colors, and even case material – there’s stainless steel, but there’s also steel, steel-gold, and bronze. A bracelet or rubber strap is available across the collection. Breitling must have anticipated the collective enthusiast longing for no date windows and smaller cases, while still appealing to “mainstream modern taste” with 44 and 46mm cases. Whether or not you like the luxury Breitling replica watches is one thing, but surely there’s a model that fits your wrist.
The new best Breitling SuperOcean copy watches don’t feature the chronograph complication from the original – but they do borrow the thick minute track and boxy minute hand from the SuperOcean Slow Motion. They also stay true to the original by not including a date window. These design decisions create a diver that’s balanced and simple, while also boasting a distinct visual character that isn’t derivative in the least. Inside is the Breitling Caliber 17 in a no-frills time-only configuration. While Breitling doesn’t usually focus on their dive watch heritage, the new SuperOcean proves that when they do, they do it right.
What We Think
Perfect replica Breitling watches has just been crushing it lately. And it seems like part of their strategy is consistency in the way they launch new models. The formula goes something like this: Find a vintage model that’s a fan favorite and either reproduce it faithfully, or find the coolest details and include them in a new watch, along with modern and relevant thematic elements. Pricing seems in line with previous releases, as well; the 36mm execution ringing in at $4,600 serves as a decent way into the brand. When it comes to the new SuperOcean, there is a tie-in, of course, and Breitling tapped their ambassador Kelly Slater for this one. In the collection there’s a 1,000-piece limited edition “Kelly Slater” model in 42mm. Here’s the story behind the watch’s design, from a recent press release:
“I’ve been co-creating watches with Breitling for the past few years but this one, in particular, is very personal. It’s inspired by my late father, who had a watch with an orange face that he used to wear surfing for as long as I can remember. The green and orange together is a color scheme I used to like for the airbrushes on my boards growing up. That combination has always stuck with me.” – Kelly Slater
The overall aesthetic of the new Swiss movements Breitling SuperOcean super clone watches is instantly recognizable thanks to the big, boxy minute hand paired with the thick chapter ring. Georges Kern, the current CEO of Breitling, is a strong personality in the industry known for his bold entrances and grandiose statements. He’s a larger-than-life character, and he’s completely backing up his vision for Breitling with hit after hit. 2022 fake Breitling’s releases consistently land in that sweet spot where there’s mainstream appeal while still catering to collector and enthusiast tastes.
