Breitling Superocean 44 Special Diver’s Watch

Breitling’s new Superocean 44 Special makes use of a sturdy steel case, an ultra-legible dial and a rotating high-tech ceramic bezel to plunge to a depth of 1,000 metres. Available in black or blue versions, this special series is a technical watch with an original style.

Since 1957, Breitling’s Superocean line has dedicated itself to using the finest technology to serve diving professionals and devotees of aquatic adventures, helping them to conquer the depths and perform great feats at sea.


The newest model, the Superocean 44 Special, is distinguished by its rotating bezel made of ceramic, an ultra-hard and scratch-resistant material designed for the most extreme missions. This black or blue bezel, matching the dial, is teamed with a steel case that is satin-finished on top and polished on its sides and crown.

This technical design continues on the steel bracelet with its extremely rugged construction, or on the black or blue rubber strap with raised central motif, Breitling signature or a row of holes.

As you would expect, the 44 Special all the distinctive characteristics of an authentic professional diving watch. A security valve serves to balance out pressure differences inside and outside the case, and large luminescent indications improve legibility.


Baton-type hands clearly distinguish hours from minutes, a bezel with an unidirectional rotation system avoids any inadvertent extension of dive times, and a ratcheted profile ensures simplified handling, even with gloves.

A seconds hand with a red tip and a small luminescent triangle serves at-a-glance checks that the movement is operating at any given time, and a sapphire crystal is glare-proofed on both sides to enhance legibility at all times.
