New for 2020, Breitling Avenger replica watches has introduced a new capsule collection carefully resurrecting the aesthetic of its own inaugural Superocean from 1957 — a quirky but capable sports watch whose dial was characterized by a segmented hour and a quartet of faceted”wedge” markers driven by round indices. The long-overdue coming of this particular reference has been the subject of a whole lot of speculation, though it’s well worth noting the ’57 variant might not function as Breitling that classic dive watch purists have been craving — yet.
Under the care of CEO Georges Kern, Breitling has spent the greater part of the previous three years using unique ambassador occasions and casual boutique build-outs to express its worth as a laid-back coastal lifestyle brand, but it hasn’t really had a physical opinion that truly reflected that messaging as closely since this brand new Superocean capsule does. Until now, the standard-issue 44mm Superocean diver has remained a pure reflection of Breitling Transocean Chronograph Unitime Replica watch contemporary tool watch capacity, although the Superocean Heritage spin-off has possessed a more refined and luxury”dress diver” aesthetic. Furthermore, both of these core references and their many variants have opted for the large polished cases and bolder design terminology that has more or less defined the last 20 years of their Breitling”Schneider era” All that varies with the ’57 variant, which wholly embraces the amazing royal charm of its source material, if the best sports watches of the era weren’t very large or flashy and certainly didn’t need to dive very deep.
Measuring only 42mm by 9mm thick and carrying out a water resistance of 100 meters, the newest ’57 Edition Superocean Heritage watches are probably best characterized as”skindivers” — sports watches which don’t endure the traditional hallmarks of a”true” ISO 6425-rated dive watch (a totally indexed timing bezel, luminous running moments counter, some level of excess of this standard water resistance, etc.) — but where they lack in purpose-built capability, they more than compensate for it in charm and island-vacation readiness.
