Breitling Replica unveiled its latest vintage-inspired family: the new Superocean Heritage ’57 Capsule Collection, a sub-series within the Superocean Heritage.
The new Breitling Replica Watch uses a bidirectional, oversized, convex dive-scale bezel, with the ceramic insert conspicuously using a more minimalist design and eschewing Arabic numerals or the 15-minute countdown common in the diver category. Moving to the dial, we find a white printed minute ring on the outer edge with applied numerals for each hour, and each quarter-hour opting for a hybrid tick/circular styling unique to the vintage Breitling SuperOcean Replica design.
Sweeping over the dial are a distinctive pair of hands, with the hours indicated by a stylized arrow pointer and the minutes by a slim, tapering sword hand; the seconds hand is a simple stick counter. Toward the top of the dial we find the recognizable applied Fake Breitling logo, while near the bottom is the script “SuperOcean” logo recalling that seen on the vintage model.
Moving to the dial, vintage influences are evident in the overall design scheme, especially in the shape of the hour markers, the hands, and the vintage “SuperOcean” script. However, it is also evident throughout that AAA Breitling Replica worked to elevate each of these features, with the hour markers all being applied, as compared to the printed/applied hybrid seen on vintage editions; the hands being slightly more stylized; and the vintage-style script accompanying a number of other dial descriptions.
