Sometimes Breitling watch designs can be clunky, over fussy and occasionally downright ugly, but the new Breitling Superocean 42 White Water, entirely clad in white from strap through bezel to dial is undeniably sexy.
It’s sturdy, it's ultra-sporty it's water-resistant to 1,500 metres.(5,000 ft), and it’s for women. But at 42mm, it's also large enough to be unisex. In its new White Water version, the Superocean, we are told, is designed to appeal to ladies who enjoy mixing style and performance, boldness and excellence.
The Superocean 42 will be available exclusively from Breitling boutiques, with a self-winding movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).
The white rubber-moulded unidirectional rotating bezel and the dial are adorned with dynamically styled numerals. The thick sapphire crystal is glareproofed on both sides while a safety valve serves to balance out differences in pressure inside and outside the case.
