Breitling Superocean Steelfish

Sturdiness, readability, functionality: since 1957, Superocean has been distinguished by its technical qualities and its sophisticated lines. A blend of elegance and performance that has earned it an excellent reputation among diver’s watches. The Steelfish special series is encased in a steel shell that is water-resistant to 1,500 metres, equivalent to a depth of 150 bars. To achieve this, it is equipped with a security valve that balances out the differences in pressure inside and outside the case. The lines of the case are highlighted by the contrast between polished and satin-brushed surfaces. The dial features circular hour-markers and oversized hands guaranteeing excellent readability. The Superocean Steelfish houses Breitling Caliber 17, a chronometer-certified self-winding movement. Screw-locked crown, unidirectional ratcheted rotating bezel, domed sapphire crystal, diameter of 42 mm. Barenia leather, buffalo skin or rubber strap, metal bracelet.
