Since 1957, the Superocean has earned a solid reputation in the field of diver's watches. Its chronograph version, for example, features exceptional technical specifications. As a genuine seagoing instrument, the Chrono Superocean is water-resistant up to 500 meters (1,650 feet); it is also equipped with safety push-pieces ensuring enhanced resistance and effective protection against shocks. Thanks to this system, the push-pieces may only be activated after unscrewing the restraining ring holding them in place. The Superocean chronograph is synonymous with excellent legibility, thanks to its over-sized hands and sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides, a treatment applied without exception to all Breitling models. The chrono Superocean is fitted with a special version of Breitling Calibre 13 driving day and date displays; a sturdy, precise and reliable movement that has repeatedly proven it worth, on land, in the air and now under the sea.

It's a stunning timepiece forsure.:thumbup::thumbup:

I very nearly bought one of these a little while back. I decided on the Super Avenger instead. It was a tough choice though. Unfortunately, I may never own one due to the fact that the Super Avenger has fulfilled my desirefor the time being for this family of Breitling watches. There's a Navitimer or Mont Brillant to be had first.......and then a Skyracer........and then a Super Ocean Heritage.......and then a Chronomat...........oh cripes!:001_unsure:

Thanks for sharing Scott. I do hope this is the start of a new feature.:biggrin:
Anytime Rick! :thumbup1: Actually, this is the 2nd one. I've planned to do one every week or 2, but unfortunately the holidays threw the schedule out a bit.... :sad:

Remember the first one, take a look..... It's quite a stunner... :wink: :thumbup1:
Hey Scott,

You expect me to remember 6 weeks ago?:biggrin:

Seriously though, I look forward to the rest of the series.:thumbup:
