Review: Breitling Superocean Héritage II

Post by Racer-X » February 23rd 2019, 1:14pm

"Breitling and Tudor made the decision to bundle their expertise in the design and production of mechanical watches even before changes came to the Breitling company. This became clear, not only in interviews with CEO Georges Kern, but as it is expressed by the new timepieces themselves. A modified Breitling movement B01 powers Tudor chronographs as its MT5813, and Breitling is now using the in-house Tudor movement MT5612.

The Superocean Héritage II is the first watch to use the three-hand movement since 2017, and bears the name B20 in its modified version. Breitling first issued the 42- and 46- mm models in 2017, followed by the launch of a third size at Baselworld 2018 that measures 44 mm, as well as our test watch – the unusual two-tone 42-mm version in stainless steel and rose gold. Black elements on the watch, like the bezel, dial and the Aero Classics rubber strap with its Milanese-style mesh pattern, lend both presence and elegance."

Because except stopwatches and the B01 chrono (its derivatives included), the last time they made one of their own was sometime around 1910... If it even was completely of their own design, that is.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.

The watch is going to cost you more than $60.

It's really gorgeous. I mean, seriously. But given Breitling's constantly teetering status and the flood of them on the pre-owned market, I'd wait that one (and any other model) out.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
