Limited Edition Red – Breitling Superocean Chronograph II

By D Constant for The Watch Review Site

So the Breitling Superocean Chrono II see’s REDDDDDDDD

Well what are your initial thoughts from the photo, quick glance first please

Breitling Superocean Chronograph II Ltd Red

So Breitling have opted to introduce a limited edition Superocean Chronograph II to the market, or should I say another, this one has a Splash of RED… and is limited to a total of 2,000 pieces. For a person who really is not keen on red, i actually like this breitling, not as much as I like the Superocean Chronograph M2000 though. so out of all the Breitling Chrono II’s I’m a M2000 fan.


So what do you all say… Here’s another press shot for you to look at and just for fun i’ve thrown in the M2000 too for comparison.
Breitling Divers Watch
Yes, Yes I know its a different watch in the fact its not a Chrono II and the M2000 is a 2000m Diver Watch whereas the Breitling Superocean Chrono II RED is a 500m Divers Watch. But I’m talking colours and looks.


Anyway back to the Breitling Superocean Chronograph II Limited Edition RED, As you all probably already know its a Diver watch which is water resistant to 500m and is a limited edition piece as depicted by its name supplied with a Red Bezel and red outlined dials on the face.


The Breitling Superocean Chronograph II already has a good reputation and it is powered by Breitling’s inhouse Calibre 13 Movement, which is certified by the COSC. 


The new colour schem for the Chrono II seems to further bring out some of the watches stronger features and embodies the Chrono’s character. The stand out feature and difference in this limited edition is the unidirectional rotating bezel, an indispensable companion for the finest feats in deep waters, which appears clad in red rubber – offering a superb touch of vivid colour. 

This vivid red on Breitlings Superocean Chronograph II is further echoed on the dials by the sweep seconds hand, the counter rings, the date window and the model’s signature all being emblazened in this RED…

The Superocean Chronograph II is issued in a limited edition of 2,000-piece whioch will be numbered and is available with the usual extensive range of Breitling Straps. This limited edition also coincides with the introduction of an all new Superocean leather strap with red edges to match its bezel.
So what’s your favourite Breitling???????
