The Detailed Story Of The Breitling SuperOcean

"Diving watches in the fifties:
The development of water sports in the 1950s led the watch industry to develop a new range of waterproof watch dedicated to aquatic recreation.
Rolex launches hostilities in 1953 with the presentation of the cult Submariner ref 6204, waterproof to 100m."

I like super oceans. I had two. One from the early 2000's and one red bezeled one from the recent past. Both went into my 2 tone 116513 Daytona with Steel dial.

Live the 6204, 6205, and 6200 references.

The watch pictured in the intro post is a looker. I might own a Breitling if they made a remake without the inner bezel and tymeknobs. Oh and a brushed-not polished to a blinding sheen 40ish mm case.

Have only owned one Breitling, previously owned by IWB and Conjurer. I slapped an OEM II bracelet on it and although it had a stunning polished finish, it was a major scratch magnet. I could look it wrong and, EEK!, scratched.

I stay away from anything that's high polish. It doesn't show wear well at all.
I had 2 Breitlings but ultimately realized a deep dislike for those damn bezel tabs at 12-3-6-9. Now I just have the hats.
