Replica Breitling Drops Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands Capsule Collection

Breitling, the renowned Swiss watchmaker, has recently unveiled its latest offering, the Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands Capsule Collection. This new collection of Swiss made replica Breitling pays homage to the rugged and adventurous spirit of the original Superocean model while adding a modern touch. In this article, we will explore the key features and highlights of this exciting new replica collection.

Design: The Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands Capsule Collection draws inspiration from the rugged terrains and majestic landscapes of the Scottish Highlands. The replica watches feature a 42mm stainless steel case with a rotating bezel, reminiscent of the vintage diver’s watches. The dials come in three distinctive colors: black, blue, and green, with matching NATO straps that perfectly complement the overall aesthetic. The collection exudes a sense of adventure and exploration, making it an ideal choice for outdoor enthusiasts.

Functionality: True to its diving heritage, the replica Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands watches offer impressive water resistance up to 100 meters. The unidirectional rotating bezel allows for precise timing during underwater activities, while the luminescent hour markers and hands ensure excellent legibility in low-light conditions. The automatic movement ensures accurate timekeeping and requires no manual winding, adding to the overall convenience and reliability of these timepieces.

Craftsmanship: The replica Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands watches showcase excellent craftsmanship, with meticulous attention to detail. The stainless steel case is well-polished, giving it a refined yet robust appearance. The NATO straps are not only comfortable but also add a sporty flair to the overall design. The sapphire crystal protects the dial from scratches and enhances its durability, ensuring that these watches will stand the test of time.

Limited Edition: The Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands Capsule Collection is a limited edition release, further adding to its exclusivity and desirability. With only a limited number of pieces available, these watches are likely to become highly sought after by collectors and watch enthusiasts alike.

Affordability: One of the significant advantages of replica watches is their affordability compared to their authentic counterparts.

Replica Breitling Superocean Héritage II: Set and Ready for Adventure

Breitling and Tudor made the decision to bundle their expertise in the design and production of mechanical watches even before changes came to the Breitling company. This became clear, not only in interviews with CEO Georges Kern, but as it is expressed by the timepieces themselves. A modified Replica Breitling movement B01 powers Tudor chronographs as its MT5813, and Breitling is now using the in-house Tudor movement MT5612.

The Superocean Héritage II is the first replica watch to use the three-hand movement since 2017, and bears the name B20 in its modified version. Breitling first issued the 42- and 46- mm models in 2017, followed by the launch of a third size at Baselworld 2018 that measures 44 mm, as well as our test watch – the unusual two-tone 42-mm version in stainless steel and rose gold. Black elements on the watch, like the bezel, dial and the Aero Classics rubber strap with its Milanese-style mesh pattern, lend both presence and elegance.

The unidirectional rotating dive bezel is one of the most striking changes Breitling made to the Superocean Héritage II, while taking care to preserve the character of the watch that made its debut in 1957. The rotating bezel contains an ultra-hard high-tech ceramic inlay that resists both scratches and impacts. The gold rim has a finer look than that of its predecessor, though it is still easy to grasp and turn with half-minute ratchets. It seems a bit loose for use as a professional dive watch.

Manufacture Caliber B20

The bezel lacks a precise minutes track despite the one printed directly next to it on the dial. This would allow for exact setting of the dive time, to the minute. But this shouldn’t be a problem at all for fans of recreational diving, who just happen to be the main target audience of the Superocean Héritage II. And although the gold seconds hand cannot be seen in the dark for a function check (due to a lack of luminous material), the hour and minutes hands are both clearly visible.

A design featuring unusual shapes – a triangle on the hour hand, a diamond-shaped minutes hand, and slightly conical hour markers – relies heavily on the original Héritage from 1957. The all-important minute hand for diving extends precisely out to touch the dedicated track around the dial circumference. Unfortunately, only eight points are visible under limited lighting conditions – insufficient for professional divers, in any case. The luminous dot on the ceramic bezel stands out alongside the slightly brighter hands, but this alone cannot help determine a precise, to-the-minute calculation of dive time. In daylight conditions the combination of black, white and rose gold creates an easily legible ensemble.

The old Breitling logo – a curvy “B” – in place of the winged letter and stylized anchor, has returned to the dial. (The earlier logo was introduced in 1979 to show equal kinship to flying and diving.) Proof of its status as an officially certified chronometer stands below the brand name.

The lower portion of the dial features the Superocean name in its characteristic font and references its water resistance and “Automatic” watch movement – which, unfortunately, cannot be seen beneath Breitling’s solid threaded caseback.

And it would be a sight to see. In contrast to the original Tudor design, the Replica Breitling B20 is more finely decorated – with Geneva stripes and satin finishes, and two additional jewels. Otherwise, both versions have the same design and features. The balance wheel is stable and supported beneath a bridge, vibrating at a rate of 4 Hz with variable inertia and a silicon hairspring. Fine regulation is adjusted via screws, to a chronometer-certified level, just like the Tudor.

In actual practice, the Superocean Héritage II can do what the COSC certificate promises. It runs smoothly with a gain of about 3 seconds per day with minimal positional differences. At the end of the 70-hour power reserve, the amplitude falls to slightly below 200°, but the rate remains stable at +2 seconds.

The replica watch is not difficult to rewind if it winds down completely. The large, deeply fluted crown is easy to grasp and release from its screw-down position. Hand winding is smooth. Clear stops indicate the positions for quick-date adjustment and setting the time. The hands can be adjusted without play, and the date advances at midnight. Only slight pressure is needed to screw down the crown into its locked position.

Five Big Steps Towards Sustainability

Breitling introduces an ambitious sustainability agenda to 2025 and a gorgeous new collection to go with it.

It was in a hotel ballroom during Geneva Replica Watches Days that the world’s press sat down to discover Breitling’s new Origins Collection and its latest sustainability news. Honestly, I was half expecting a range of new vegan straps and perhaps some recycled steel, but what I was to witness was a serious program for change that matches with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and marks a new level of commitment in the luxury watch industry. So, let’s take a look at the plan. 

Step 1 – Better Gold

When it comes to the circular economy, wristwatches are extremely sustainable. Firstly, they are well made and last for years, and secondly, they can be repaired, resold, and re-loved over and over. And lastly, for the most part, they are produced in state-of-the-art, eco-responsible buildings that recycle all their waste. But there is a dark side to the industry, and that comes from the precious raw materials that come into play in the fabrication of a wristwatch in the form of gold and/or gemstones.

One way to avoid this could be to stop producing gold watches altogether, or only use recycled gold, but this could actually create more problems for the planet and its people. Over 20 million individuals are working in the gold mining industry, most of whom are part of artisanal and small-scale mining operations. If demand drops, this could be detrimental to their financial well-being. 

One solution – and the one that Breitling has chosen – is to work towards “Better Gold”. This initiative is to work with the miners to extract gold in a sustainable way by reducing air and water pollution, replanting trees, protecting wildlife, and so forth. But it isn’t only about protecting the planet, Better Gold is also committed to providing safe working conditions to paying a legal wage, and to supporting the education of local children, and more. 

Step 2 – Lab-Grown Diamonds

The next step in Breitling’s programme is the use of lab-grown diamonds. As the majority of melée diamonds (the tiny mixed diamonds that are used to set watches) are impossible to trace, Breitling has decided to use lab-grown diamonds instead. There is some controversy over these kinds of diamonds as it takes huge amounts of energy to produce them. For Breitling, they have made a point to work with producers that are climate neutral and/or transitioning towards renewable energy or using low-carbon energy sources.

Step 3 – The Diamond Support Fund

As is the case with the gold miners, the diamond miners could also be under threat if supply drops drastically. For this reason, Breitling has set up its Diamond Support Fund that makes a contribution to a social impact fund in diamond-producing communities for each carat sold, until these melée diamonds can be properly traced. 

Step 4 – Blockchain and NFTs

Thanks to blockchain technology, all new Breitling Super Chronomat 38 Origins timepieces will be issued with an NFT that follows the watch’s components from the mine to the finished piece. Each step of the way is independently verified to ensure that the whole watchmaking process can be traceable.

Step 5 – Countdown to 2025

For the moment, it is only this new Breitling Replica Super Chronomat 38 that will feature all these sustainable criteria, but the objective is to roll them out to the entire Breitling collection by the year 2025. 

Let’s hope this is the start of a new movement that will see other brands join the cause over the coming months because time is something that we are fast running out of when it comes to protecting the planet and its people.
