Breitling’s famous diving watch gets a colourful makeover in this new women’s collection

Watches & Jewellery 28 Jun 2021

As we tentatively bring out our summer wardrobes, the easiest way to instantly inject some vibrancy and fun into any outfit is through accessories. And whether you’re headed to work or the beach, Breitling’s colourful new take on its iconic diver’s watch has you covered.

The new Superocean Heritage ’57 Pastel Paradise Capsule Collection has all the sophistication of the original, reimagined for women in a range of playful new hues. Elegant with just the right amount of whimsy, the watch comes in summer white, aquamarine, mint green and iced latte, with tone-on-tone dials, bezels and straps that showcases the shades to full effect. Should you wish to mix-and-match, the straps are easily interchangeable thanks to Breitling’s quick-exchange system, with even more colours and options available.

If one colour isn’t quite enough, there’s a special model that offers up the rainbow on its dial, rendered in multicoloured SuperLuminova across the hour and minute markers. If the popularity of its previous rainbow Superocean Heritage is anything to go by, this is set to be among the most coveted of the new collection.

As with the rest of its women’s watches, you can rely on Breitling to back up the style with some serious watchmaking substance. In this case they come powered by its COSC-certified Breitling Calibre 10, offering precision timekeeping and a power reserve of 42 hours. And with its water resistance of up to 100 metres, you can rest assured that it will survive a dip in the sea this summer.
