Overall, the Breitling SuperOcean 42mm Automatic is a sturdy sports watch with excellent diving capabilities. On a 7 inch wrist, this watch fits almost perfectly, with its a 42mm case size.
The “Ocean Classic” mesh bracelet is iconic to dive watches in Breitling’s collection and has been used once again for the Superocean Héritage II B20 Automatic 42.
Since its first release over 60 years ago, the Breitling SuperOcean collection has stayed true to the quality, pure Breitling style and exceptional performance. The 2019 update brings a new facelift with two dial colour choices (black and blue), while keeping the internal mechanics that the SuperOcean is known for the same.
Overall, the Breitling SuperOcean 42mm Automatic is a sturdy sports watch with excellent diving capabilities. On a 7 inch wrist, this watch fits almost perfectly, with its a 42mm case size. The black and white contrast with the large white hour markers and hands against the black dial, provide excellent readability no matter the situation. This is further helped along by the large usage of SuperLuminova giving the dial a stunning at night. The watch doesn’t feel too bulky. However, it is certainly noticeable when worn. As you rotate the bezel around the dial, it gives the feedback of a robust and reassuring click with each turn. This can be especially helpful when wearing gloves and being underwater. The thickness of the Breitling SuperOcean 42mm automatic is roughly 14.2mm, which is great for diving. This watch is also suitable for day to day activities. However, some may struggle to fit the watch under a formal shirt due to its thickness. The watch comes with a choice of a stainless-steel bracelet or a dial colour-matching rubber strap (black or blue). Breitling has done a great job in updating the SuperOcean models by retaining a classic strong movement while giving it a more simplistic look on the dial. This piece will be sure to attract those that are after a fresh, sporty watch that’s up to any challenge, whether it be swimming, surfing or diving!
