Breitling’s impressive manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. This meant we also had a chance to spend some time with the brand-new Breitling Superocean II that was introduced shortly before Baselworld 2015. Here we take a look at the 44-mm version with metallic blue dial, matching blue bezel insert, and rubber strap.
You can choose between a 44- and 42-mm version with either black or blue dial (or black and white if you prefer a 36-mm size), but only the 44-mm model features an integrated helium- release valve at 9 o’clock, making it the Cheap Breitling Replica most “professional” version, with a water resistance of 1,000 meters and partially satin-brushed surfaces (versus 500 meters and 200 meters and polished surfaces in the smaller models).
The unidirectional bezel is still partially filled with rubber, which looks amazing, but to be honest we had initially hoped for something different, like ceramic, after the recent re-introduction of the Breitling Replica Watches.
As you have probably noticed, the dial is rather busy (which is typical for Breitling) but still surprisingly legible. It comes with an internal circle of 24-hour indexes, which includes the only aspect we found to criticize: the “15” at 3 o’clock is partially covered by the date window and somehow closer to the center of the dial then the rest of the numerals. It could have been simply left out instead.
Other than that, the new Breitling Replica UK offers well-built quality and is as “Breitling” as they come, which means this redesign can be considered another happy landing for this aviation-associated brand.
