Notes

The Breitling manual wind SuperOcean chronograph was produced between 1957 and 1964 and was the first model to bear the SuperOcean name. To compete with models launched by their competition, it was obvious Breilting also needed models to cater to the new trend of scuba diving and were water-resistant to 200m. Fitted with its iconic triangle hands and with a concave revolving bezel, the SuperOcean is one of the rarest diving chronographs ever produced by Breitling and still looks modern to this day.
