This beautiful Breitling is a pretty tough diver timepiece, built like a submersible watch! The design is similar to the 1950’s Breitling Super Ocean, but with a much more modern look. Which makes it look stunningly beautiful with its minimalist calibration of the bezel, and dial. However, make no mistake this watch is pretty thick, and big! It makes a broad stance on the wrist, as if it is asking for the attention it deserves. Notice the eye catching rose gold Breitling ‘B’ logo at 12 o’clock!!
This chronograph watch also features; a simple case, with vintage pump style pushers (I would advise not using the pushers under water to prevent water from getting inside the case), a screwdown crown, a captive bezel to ensure you don’t accidentally snap the bezel out of the watch, the chronograph only reads up to 30 minutes, a date at 6 o’clock anchoring the dial, a screwed in case back, it features stop seconds so you can hold time, a matte dial to prevent glare, this model in particular has plenty of lume!!!
It is important to note that this watch does not feature a conventional quick set date, meaning that to set up the date you need to go past 12 o’clock then backwards prior to 8 o’clock.
The action of the rotating bezel is excellent, chunky, loud, and quite satisfying when rotating it.

Now this watch is preowned so it does come with some signs of wear. The bezel does have fine hairlines that can only be noticed under a direct light, this is also applies to the hairlines in the case, and case back (as shown on the pictures). There is a vey small dent on the crystal at 8 o’clock (shown on the first picture) hardly noticeable. Some small dents on all four lugs, and case, that can be noticed only when you are looking for them. Two scratches on the top lugs, which are hardly seen when wearing the watch. The buckle does show some slight signs of usage. The aftermarket mesh bracelet is the one that shows the most wear. Overall, most of the signs of wear can only be noticeable when looking for them, when wearing this watch casually you wont notice them as much.
