There’s a certain sameness to the look of most dive watches, but the Superocean Slow Motion always stood out from the crowd.

 

Experience the New Superocean:

Launching the redesign of its sporty sea watch, the Superocean collection retraces the pared-down aesthetic of the original Superocean Slow Motion from the 1960s and 70s, while adding modern features, a bright colour palette and the opportunity to surf, swim, dive and hit the local bar with its stylish and functional design.

The Basics:

Available in four sizes (36, 42, 44 & 46mm) the collection’s colourful dials are paired with three different case metals—steel, steel-gold, and bronze.

The special alloy used in the 44 and 42mm bronze versions has an excellent resistance to corrosion but will still develop a subtle patina over time that makes the watch even more unique.

The two strap options, a sporty rubber strap and a new three-row metal bracelet both have a folding clasp that allows for micro-adjustments of up to 15 mm for easy wear over rashies and dive suits.

Aside from this revamped being super good looking, the new Superocean is also a technical marvel.  Water-resistant to 300m, it features broad hands and indexes coated in Super-LumiNova® that allow for exceptional readability underwater. Its scratchproof ceramic-inlayed bezel means it will never wear or fade. For safety, the bezel is unidirectional on most sizes and bidirectional with a patented lock on the 46 mm. This watch is also shock-, sand-, and saltwater-resistant.

Are you ready to head to the beach yet?

The Balance of Nostalgia and Making Fresh Waves:

The watch assortment includes the special-edition Superocean Automatic 42 Kelly Slater. Co-designed with the surf champion and limited to 1000 pieces, the watch features an eye-popping orange dial and a military-green rubber strap. The colour scheme is inspired by a watch Slater’s dad used to wear surfing.

Slater says, “I’ve been co-creating watches with Breitling for the past few years but this one, in particular, is very personal. It’s inspired by my late father, who had a watch with an orange face that he used to wear surfing for as long as I can remember. The green and orange together is a colour scheme I used to like for the airbrushes on my boards growing up. That combination has always stuck with me.”

There’s something for everyone in the new Superocean. Collectors will recognize the strong influence of the Slow Motion, water sports enthusiasts will appreciate its technical features, and the style conscious will gravitate towards its day-to-night, beach-to-boardroom versatility.

It is clear the ocean is calling, the Superocean that is!

The new Superocean collection is now available at Gregory Jewellers Bondi, Burwood, Chatswood, Miranda, Parramatta and online.
