Into the deep: Breitling’s Superocean Chronograph watch

The fact that this chronograph is the only one in the world that remains fully water-resistant and functional at 2,000 meters is stunning in itself. The secret lies in a patented magnetic push-piece system, which employs the case’s metal to initiate the chronograph. It also eliminates, entirely, the risk of water seepage.

First released as the Superocean Chronograph M2000 by Breitling, this timepiece is now available in a 250-piece limited edition (RM18,090) in satin-brushed steel with carbon treatment for greater resistance. Luminescent coating on oversized hands and hour markers offer legibility in unforgiving circumstances.

A built-in decompression valve on the case is also strengthened by a 4mm-thick glare-proof sapphire crystal. Finally, to guarantee unsurpassed precision, this timepiece is equipped with a SuperQuartz movement – chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) that gives it an accuracy that is ten times greater than regular quartz.
