This replica Breitling SuperOcean Heritage 46 chronograph with a beautiful blue dial and black bezel.The Breitling mesh bracelet is the nicest looking, well made piece of hardware that I own. Although the watch came with a blue leather strap, I doubt I’ll ever use it. The bracelet is just that nice.
The date window is black numerals on a white disc at the 3 o’clock position and there are applied hour markers around the edge. There’s a lovely little Breitling “B” in polished gold above the text on the right side of the watch.There are sub dials for the small seconds, chrono minutes and chrono hours.
The chronograph seconds hand on this Breitling is in polished silver and is a little hard to see at times. There’s no lume on the seconds hand. The hour and minutes hands are nicely sized and all it takes is a very quick glance to read the time.
Small pips at the top of each hour marker are lumed with the exception of those opposite the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock markers. The 12 o’clock position contains a lumed triangle. But, the bezel indicators are not lumed so that more-or-less eliminates this watch from timing deeper dives (where visibility is poorer) using the bezel. Since we’re on the subject, this watch is good for 20 ATM – 200 meters or 660 feet of underwater exploration.
The watch measures a nice (for me anyway) 46mm in diameter not including the pushers. It’s a bit thick at 15mm but the convex base plate fits nicely into the wrist and it wears thinner than you would think. I can wear this watch with all my dress shirts including those with tighter French cuffs and links. The lug width is a pretty standard 24mm so finding other straps/bracelets to change up the look will be an easy task.
