The Detailed Story Of The Breitling SuperOcean

Post by Racer-X » May 20th 2017, 4:42pm

"Diving watches in the fifties:
The development of water sports in the 1950s led the watch industry to develop a new range of waterproof watch dedicated to aquatic recreation.
Rolex launches hostilities in 1953 with the presentation of the cult Submariner ref 6204, waterproof to 100m."

The watch pictured in the intro post is a looker. I might own a Breitling if they made a remake without the inner bezel and tymeknobs. Oh and a brushed-not polished to a blinding sheen 40ish mm case.

Have only owned one Breitling, previously owned by IWB and Conjurer. I slapped an OEM II bracelet on it and although it had a stunning polished finish, it was a major scratch magnet. I could look it wrong and, EEK!, scratched.

I stay away from anything that's high polish. It doesn't show wear well at all.
I had 2 Breitlings but ultimately realized a deep dislike for those damn bezel tabs at 12-3-6-9. Now I just have the hats.
