Let’s go to another Pitch Watch.
Breitling has just launched the Superocean Heritage ’57 Pastel Paradise Capsule Collection, in vibrant colors for the bathing season.
There are five new variants introduced in the Superocean Heritage ’57 collection, with new dimensions of now 38mm in diameter by 9.35mm thick, which the brand intends to continue to call female variants, but which in our view and as much we have already written on the subject seems to us to be the wrong approach.
The new variants as already mentioned are offered in five colors, white, aquamarine, mint green, and an iced latte, all variants extend the color of the dial to the bezel and the Saffiano leather strap that accompanies them. Just like the Superocean Heritage ’57 collection launched in April 2020, the new Pastel Paradise Capsule Collection also features a variant with rainbow hour markers and hands, which comes with a white dial and bezel, with hour markers and hands filled with colored (rainbow ) Super-LumiNova and is offered with an orange leather strap.
With regard to differences from the previous variants in addition to dimensions and colors, we have identified two, first, the former needle-shaped second hand now gives way to a lollipop second hand and second, the former inscriptions on the dial at 6 o’clock containing three lines of text, now gives place to one text line with “Superocean” dropping the previous “Chronometer” and “100M/330FT”.
Inside everything the same, the watch is powered by the Caliber B10 automatic movement (ETA 2892) which offers up to 42 hours of power reserve and is COSC certified.
The watches are not limited editions however as the name implies they are a Capsule Collection which means that their production is limited in time. Prices range from € 4,350 for the four solid color variants to € 4,530 for the variant with rainbow color indices and hands.
