In 1884 Léon Breitling established Breitling in Grenchen – the Canton of Solothurn, in Switzerland. Breitling is one of very few independent Swiss watchmakers left.
Léon Breitling intended for his company to specialize in the field of timers and chronographs – precision instruments to be used primarily within science, sports and industry.
The Breitling Superocean “Heritage” watches can trace their origins back to the 1950s, hence the name “Heritage”. The slightly retro old school design gives you a hint that this is a collection with some history to it.
The Breitling Superocean Heritage 46, has a 46mm case diameter, and is the largest sub collection within the Superocean Heritage family.
Breitling Superocean Heritage 46 is indeed a divers watch with a water resistance of 200 meters/656 feet, but with a traditional, conservative and elegant design, this watch could easily be used as a dress watch as well. The case is crafted in 316L stainless steel, and some models offer a bezel in 18 carat rose gold.
There are two versions of the Superocean Heritage 46: one with a chronograph, and one without. The chronograph version relies on Breitling automatic caliber 13, which uses the ETA/Valjoux 7750 as its base movement. The plain non-chronograph version of the Superocean Heritage 46, relies on Breitling automatic caliber 17, which is an ETA 2824-2 base movement.
