Here’s a new piece of wrist candy to pick up before heading off on your next diving trip to the Red Sea or Gulf of Oman. Swiss luxury-watchmaker Breitling has just made the Superocean 44 Special available in the Middle East market. Capable of plunging to depths of 1,000 metres, the timepiece was originally announced at the 2016 edition of Baselworld, but is only making its way to our part of the world now.
In striking blue or black versions, the watch’s distinguishing feature is its rotating bezel made of ceramic – sturdy and ideal for extreme expeditions off the coast of Oman. With a masculine, technical look, and choices of blue or black bezel; glare-proofed with sapphire crystal to ensure easy readability at any depth; and four straps to choose from in steel or rubber, it’s a most-wanted diving accoutrement for intrepid divers both professional and stylish.
Commenting on the new model, Aed Adwan, Breitling Middle East said, “Since 1957, the Superocean line has been dedicating the finest technology to serving diving professionals and devotees of aquatic adventures. The new Superocean 44 Special features all the distinctive characteristics of an authentic professional diving watch which will appeal to our Middle East ocean explorers”.
