Breitling Capsule Superocean Heritage ’57: Back to the Fabulous 50s

The Breitling designers have reached deep into their bag of tricks. In addition to the newly launched ladies’ Navitimer in a 35mm case, the brand now also pays homage to its first ever diving watch. As the name suggests, this watch dates back to 1957.

Lots of new Breitling Superocean watches.

A history of divers

Nobody really expected the Capsule Superocean Heritage ’57 collection. Although the brand’s first divers’ watch was launched in 1957 – the Breitling SuperOcean – these days the watches in the Navitimer collection are usually the focus of public interest. Until now.

The new models with extra-wide ceramic bezel are available in both stainless steel and a combination of stainless steel and red gold, depending on your personal taste (and budget of course). The special edition, limited to 250 pieces and available on the colorful ECONYL nato strap, certainly deserves special attention: According to Breitling, it will awaken the hippie in you. For this boutique watch, the indices shimmer in the colours of the rainbow.
