Breitling’s new Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown celebrates the brand’s partnership with Outerknown, a sustainable clothing company committed to improving environmental conditions for the entire planet. The watch features a first for Breitling: the strap is crafted from ECONYL® yarn, an innovative material created from nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets from oceans around the world. Outerknown co-founder and Breitling Surfers Squad member Kelly Slater has also committed his life to fighting polluted oceans and beaches. The two legends works with Ocean Conservancy to raise awareness of the problem of marine waste and to motivate individuals to take action to clean up the oceans.
Breitling’s Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown is a striking wristwatch whose black case, bold blue dial, and blue ECONYL® yarn NATO strap make a bold style statement. The color blue also creates a powerful, eye-catching link to the oceans and the blue planet which surfing legend Kelly Slater are striving to support.
The Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown has a striking black DLC-coated stainless-steel case and a caseback engraved with the distinctive Outerknown logo. The COSC-certified chronometer features an ultrahard scratch and shock-resistant unidirectional ceramic bezel with a luminescent central dot at the 12 o’clock position an ideal feature for a diver’s watch. The Super-LumiNova® coating on the dot and the hour and minute hands emits a blue light instead of the standard green, which perfectly complements the watch’s design.
The Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown is powered by the Breitling Caliber 13 mechanical chronograph movement. This diver’s watch, whose style statement is complemented by its powerful links to sustainability, is water-resistant to 20 bar. The model is also presented in packaging made entirely of recycled materials.
