A funny thing happened while I was in the midst of the drawn out process of reviewing Breitling’s “original” (modern) Superocean Heritage watch – Breitling decided to release a brand new model with the Breitling Superocean Heritage II that debuted at Baselworld 2017. The Breitling Superocean Heritage II is actually a few different models comprised of various styles of the 42mm-wide three-hand model, the 46mm-wide three-hand model, and the 46mm-wide chronograph. This article is meant to compare and contrast the first generation Breitling Superocean Heritage I with the replacement “next generation” Superocean Heritage II. An interesting change about the watch – which I will discuss more below – is that for the three-hand models Breitling is now using Tudor movements – imagine that.

Change of the watch

Changes to the Breitling Superocean Heritage II fake watches UK over the I are subtle but important. What Breitling really did is address the “aging” of the Superocean Heritage, which was about materials and parts over design. The Superocean Heritage was and continues to be a solid money-maker for Breitling, being one of its most popular and attractive models. The Superocean name is derived from a historic diving watch of the same name released about 70 years ago by Breitling, whose look was “revived” in the Superocean Heritage. As a “vintage-inspired” diving watch, the Superocean Heritage lived alongside more “modern” (in design) diving watches from Breitling such as the (non “Heritage”) Superocean. Since we have photos of both the Generation I and Generation II in this review, the fastest way to identify them is by looking at the hour and minute hand. If the hour hand is bisected and the minute hand sports a more dramatic tapering, it’s the Generation II.

While it is increasingly common for luxury watch brands to follow “The Rolex Way” of updating existing models over and over again as time goes on, the practice is more rare than you might be led to believe. Though, in recent years brands have seen value in sticking to “pillar” products and continually refining them over time in order to make them appealing to new customers as well as to encourage existing customers to upgrade. That is really only something you can do with a good core design. Breitling has more or less followed this strategy, but in a very different way, While they certainly have their share of pillar models, there are instances when new generation versions of existing names aren’t necessarily improved previous versions. Sometimes they are merely “different,” without a clear reason why.

The 2017 Superocean Heritage II is much more clear in its purpose – and that is not to re-imagine the look of the Superocean Heritage collection, but rather to make it more modern. Some of the design decisions might be controversial, but for the most part, the Superocean Heritage II is everything we loved about the Superocean Heritage I, with some more modern materials and in the case of the three-hand version, a new movement.

Your choice

A very important question to ask yourself is whether or not you should get a good deal on a previous generation Superocean Heritage I or pony up for the brand new Superocean Heritage II. Is one a solid upgrade over the other, or are both models appealing in their own way? In fact, a very good argument could be made that while the Superocean Heritage II has some clear improvements over the first generation model, depending on your taste (and ability to find a deal), the previous generation Superocean Heritage watch might be just as good if not better for your needs.

We all have a dark side. For some it’s present in the extreme, unapologetically upfront and true. Whilst for others, it’s more subtle, maybe even sublime, and yet rarely sees the light of day. Whatever your shade, you’ll be sure to find a bold timepiece to suit.

Breitling Avenger Hurricane Military

Breitling unmask masculinity with the Breitling fake Avenger Hurricane Military watches UK. For a military-inspired watch, Breitling have cleverly kept tradition at its core, and modernised it without compromise. With its all-black avant-garde case in Beitlight®, an exclusive high-tech material more than 3 times lighter than titanium and almost 6 times lighter than steel, you get a harder, more scratch-resistant exterior. The dial, also black, is bought to life by the 24-hour numerals present in stencil-form. Yellow-beige in colour, they add a vintage feel to the watch, highlighting the brand’s heritage in military aviation. Such raw and rigorous qualities are emitted throughout, from the non-slip grip of the pushers and crown, down to then highly resistant texture fibre of the khaki, rubber lined strap. The ultra-light and ultra-sturdy timepiece is powered by Manufacture Breitling Calibre B12, a self-winding chronograph movement, which is chronometer-certified by COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) for superior precision. Water resistant to 100 m with 70 hour power reserve, this dark Breitling is robust enough to be put through its paces.

Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech

If sleek sophistication resonates with you, then the Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech limited edition replica watches will surely allure. Taking technology to another level, the suave LAB-ID achieves its blackness by way of various carbon applications. The case, 49mm in diameter, is produced from a composite material based on carbon fibre, which Panarai refer to as Carbotech. Thin sheets of carbon fibres are compressed at a controlled temperature under high pressure with a polymer called PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone). It has a dense, uneven blackness which varies with the cut of the material, meaning no two pieces are alike. Taking carbon even further, we take a dive into the dial details. Covered with carbon nanotubes, which serve to absorb light, a whole new dimension of black is reached. So deep is the black, it beautifully contrasts with the blue coloured Super-LumiNova hour markers and hands, ensuring excellent visibility and legibility. The inside of the watch runs just as smooth, with the materials engineered to allow for dry-lubricating properties; from the tantalum-based ceramic plates and bridges, to the DLC-coated silicon escape wheel. Technically advanced and contemporary in design, Panarai skilfully embed mystery to a seemingly simplistic watch.

Graff Eclipse Tourbillion

Complete black-out is what you get with the Graff Eclipse Tourbillion. An elegant execution, the timepiece makes a confident statement on the wrist. The 43mm scratch-resistant titanium black DLC case fake watches weighing in at just 45 grams makes it light-wear for everyday use. Although extremely matte throughout, its features are delicately pronounced, almost hiding in plain sight, as can be seen with the textured dial, faceted bezel and hour markers, and diamond-topped crown. The movement is a tourbillon automatic with a peripheral rotor; its functions, hours and minutes. Teamed with an all-black alligator strap, this Graff watch proves its versatility and can be worn in a casual set-up, as well as with formal-wear. As the saying goes, “black goes with everything”.
