WHY THIS WATCH
Inspiration from the Past
In the 1950's diving was starting to become a more popular sport around the world. It was at this time in 1957 that Breitling released the SuperOcean Chronograph, reference 807. The reference 807 was designed for divers who needed a hearty and reliable watch for their underwater explorations. The SuperOcean line was water resistant to 200m, which was huge at the time. They also carried a distinctive style, including triangle shaped hands as well as circular/triangular hour markers. Breitling has carried the inspiration from this model to today, with this 44mm DLC Coated Superocean Chronograph.
This watch is 44mm in diameter with a DLC coated steel case, and limited edition green dial with black eye sub-registers. This watch is big and bold, and isn't shy about showing it. Because the watch comes on a mesh style rubber strap that is extremely comfortable, it's wearable despite being 44mm and over 15mm thick. I'll also mention the Rubber strap comes with a micro-adjust feature on the deployment, assuring the perfect fit as your wrist expands and contracts.
In the past, Breitling watches have used off-the-shelf ETA Calibres for most of their movements. In 2009, Breitling announced it's first in-house chronograph movement after 5 years of Research and Development. The B01 is a column-wheel self-winding chronograph with a vertical coupling system which eliminates hand-jumping when the chronograph is activated. The movement also utilizes an index regulating system inside the movement which allows for easy rate adjustment. It's got 70 hours of Power Reserve off of a single barrel. In terms of finishing, this movement is nicely finished but don't expect it to be at the level of a Patek or AP. We've got the standard Cotes De Geneve, Circular Finishing, and diamond-polished bevels.
On the wrist this is a large watch, that wears a touch smaller due to the comfortable Rubber Strap. The Green Dial has a very nice shimmer to it, especially in direct light. The DLC coating makes this mostly a sporty watch that would be hard to dress up. Working the chronograph, you can really tell the in-house movement was worth it, with stop start and reset of the chronograph on a different level.
