A tribute to the laid-back lifestyle of the surfers of the 1950s and 1960s
Breitling announces the launch of its Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 Capsule Collection, whose watches take their design inspiration from the brand’s original SuperOcean from 1957. They also embody the cool, laid-back surfing lifestyle of the 1950s and 1960s. The soundtrack? Take your pick – but your mix tape would have to include “Wipe Out” and a selection of songs by the Beach Boys, the Ventures, and Jan and Dean.
The laid-back surfing lifestyle
The Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 Capsule Collection introduces some interesting twists to one of the world’s true diving icons. Each watch in the collection is a modern retro interpretation of a classic. A sea watch that em- bodies the laid-back lifestyle associated with surfers and beachcombers.
According to Breitling CEO Georges Kern, “The Capsule Collections let us tell some of our brand’s most in- spiring stories while we produce some remarkably unique watches for a limited amount of time. With the Superocean Heritage ’57 Capsule Collection, we’ve focused on the relaxed Southern California fun-in-the-sun culture that defined an era. The surfing itself in the 1950s and 1960s is at the heart of our storytelling here, but those times offered so much more: the great music, the amazing cars, and the almost spiritual connection to freedom found on endless sandy beaches and in the search for the perfect wave.”
The Superocean Heritage ’57 Capsule Collection is available with two dial options. One has a classic black dial and is presented on a black vintage-inspired leather strap with a pin or folding buckle, while the other has a blue dial and is equipped with a brown vin- tage-inspired leather strap with a pin or folding buck- le. Of course, both are also available with an integrated Ocean Classic stainless-steel bracelet with a butterfly clasp. There is also a two-tone version featuring a bi- directional rotating bezel in 18 k red gold with a black ceramic ring. This striking watch has a black dial and is available with either a gold-brown vintage-inspired leather strap or an Ocean Classic stainless-steel bracelet with a butterfly clasp.
