For the hot summer, Breitling has prepared a fresh sporty version of its model from the Superocean collection. It is the new Superocean 42 White Water timepiece for ladies with an ice-cold white appearance and impressive water resistance, supplied with a respectable self-winding movement. It features a bold and daring style, with the dominating white color of the dial, strap and bezel, combined with a silver steel of its round case. The horological strong points of the product are its self-winding mechanical caliber with COSC chronometer certificate and the resilient construction that guarantees that the watch is water proof to astonishing 1,500 meters (5,000 feet).
Breitling Superocean 42 White Water Watch, the Boutique Edition of timepieces from the Swiss town of Grenchen, is mainly different because of its unusual styling. However, in the watchmaking sense, this model is not different from the other Superocean 42 editions. The core of the watch is its automatic Breitling 17 caliber (base movement ETA 2424-2) that beats at the frequency of 28,800 vph, and provides about 42 hours of power reserve. Besides, the White Water has a steel case of the same dimensions, with the width of 42 mm and the thickness of 15 mm, as well as the matching weight without the wristlet that equals 99.7 g (about 3.5 oz).
In order to be able to withstand extraordinary high pressures, the watch by Breitling is forged with required features, such as a screw-down case back, a screw-in crown with sturdy lateral reinforcements. A safety valve that is utilized to compensate the differences of pressures inside the case and of its surroundings is also added to the timepiece’s mechanism.
The stylish Breitling diving watch has a white Diver Pro rubber strap that matches the color of its unidirectional rotating rubber-molded bezel, as well as its face. The watch is constructed with a cambered sapphire crystal with double glare-proof treatment, in the Breitling’s recognizable high-end manner. The white dial includes a flange with a minute scale that gives it a three-dimensional appearance. The whiteness of the dial is combined with large grey Arabic numerals of dynamic styling, as well as luminous hands and hour markers. The three o’clock position of the dial is reserved for the display of the only additional function of the watch – its date display.
All in all, the Boutique edition of Breitling Superocean 42 called White Water is a very interesting and distinguished timekeeper with exceptional water resistance which in a way adds the substance to its boastful appearance. The product can pride itself with the multitude of additional functions or complications, but it does include a quality mechanical caliber and a plenty of style.
