Breitling Super Ocean – 1958 original

Here’s one of my latest fiends: an original breitling Super Ocean. These must have been Breitling’s answer to the Rolex sub which got introduced a couple years earlier.

Breitling made a re-edition of these just a couple of years ago and it’s not hard to imagine why: it’s a looker! The sliding bi-directional bezel and it’s lume insert, the applied indexes…it’s such a great design.

The motor is a modified and very nicely decorated ETA movement.
