This special edition of the Superocean Heritage Chronograph was born from the collaboration between Breitling and Ocean Conservancy, the organization committed for over 40 years to safeguarding the oceans and characterized by a pragmatic and multisectoral vision of environmental issues. The watch was presented last spring in Bali, as part of a beach cleanup initiative that involved many volunteers but also members of Breitling’s Surfer Squad – the American Kelly Slater and the two Australians Sally Fitzgibbons and Stephanie Gilmore – all united in a commitment to keep plastics and other waste out of the oceans.
“With the launch of this first fantastic watch, we want to add a significant and credible element to our partnership and its global projects,” said Breitling CEO Georges Kern, thus confirming the desire to continue on the path already traced.
For its part, the watch presents a tangible sign of the Grenchen House’s environmental commitment, represented by two NATO straps made of ECONYL® thread, an innovative material obtained by recycling nylon waste, such as fishing nets recovered from the oceans of all the world; it is a very resistant material and can be recycled several times. The watch case is also in recycled material. A portion of the proceeds from sales will contribute to the Ocean Conservancy’s fight against ocean pollution.
A diver with an elegant appeal, the HydroConquest is characterized by water resistance up to 300 meters deep, a rotating bezel, screw-down caseback and crown. The look has been renewed this year, with a ceramic insert on the bezel, in the same color as the dial in a brand new black color with a soleil finish and SuperLuminova indexes and hands.
