Dive watches have been a specialty of Breitling and we’ve seen them issued in all sorts of variables by this prolific Swiss brand. Even the movements for these timepieces can be had in either mechanical or quartz. And fostered looks have included vintage to modern themes. But, the ceramic bezel hadn’t been used that often, although here it is again with the: “Breitling Superocean 44 Special”.
The 44mm round case is made of satin-brushed black steel with a PVD-coating and a screw-down crown. Their high-tech rotating ceramic bezel is not a mere insert, but instead a solid block piece. It differs from the usual practice of applying a simple ring onto a metal frame, which get referred to as “bezel inserts”. It should render the piece more scratch-resistant, although some consumers are skeptical. The case also features a helium release valve that assists with its water-resistance reaching up to 1000m (3330 feet).
Overall this watch maintains an all-black color scheme from case to the volcano-black dial. But, is also bearing many white markings in the form of minute and hour index markers. These markers are featured on the bezel and in various rings on the dial. The numerals are Arabic and are represented in a 24-hour time scale. There is also a black date aperture at the 3 o’clock position. And they’ve opted for oversized white hands and a seconds hand with a red arrow tip, all with a luminescent coating for enhanced legibility.
