Breitling SuperOcean 42mm Review

Post by koimaster » April 27th 2022, 8:41am

The Breitling SuperOcean line was refreshed last year. The revised lineup was sufficiently improved to persuade our editor to put his hand in his pocket.


Breitling SuperOcean 42mm Review

Let’s get one thing out in the open: I don’t generally like Breitling watches. I think their dials are usually too busy, their cases too thick and the prices are often too high compared to brands like Tudor that share the same space in the market. On the other hand, I have always had a soft spot for the SuperOcean heritage line. The standard SuperOcean line seemed a bit out of place, with neither the clean looks of the heritage range nor the ultra-business of, say, the Navitimer. The 2019 refresh put the standard Breitling SuperOcean firmly on my wishlist. The minute I saw this model I fell in love: it has removed almost all of the text and other “fussiness” from the dial, has a bold, modern look. It’s just 13mm thick and can be had for around £3k – which is not exactly cheap but is about right for the specifications given the brand cachet.

Is no secret.

Breitling owners are shitheels and anyone that would wear the brand is a dick.
Yes, I am I guess.

I still like mine and looking at the new ones I wonder if it is worth investing in a servicing, All is great except the lume is gone.

Is it wrong to want a watch bad because of the typeface? I love these.
You should get one. It'll get you more arse than a bus seat.

Octogenarian arse maybe. Toby would do better with his generation with an Apple wartch and man bun.
A man bun would be great for covering up where my hair is thinning :-)
