Working with the conservation group Ocean Conservancy, Breitling organized a beach cleanup in Bali to celebrate the launch of the new chronograph limited to 1000 pieces.
On May 10, 2019, Breitling introduced a limited-edition model to commemorate its important partnership with Ocean Conservancy. The launch, which was held in Bali in cooperation with Ocean Conservancy, was part of a beach cleanup initiative with 100 Breitling guests and hundreds of volunteers from Bali and the surrounding region. The cleanup effort resulted in hundreds of kilograms of trash and plastic being removed from the beach. On hand to support the cleanup were the members of Breitling’s Surfers Squad, Kelly Slater, from the US, and the two Australians Sally Fitzgibbons and Stephanie Gilmore, who contributed their efforts to their first shared mission as part of Breitling’s squad.
The chronograph, which is powered by a Breitling Caliber 13 automatic movement, features an ultra-hard scratch- and shock-resistant unidirectional rotating bezel with a luminescent central dot at 12 o’clock. This dot, as well as the minute and hour hands, are coated with Super-LumiNova and emit a blue light instead of the standard green. This color variation complements the design of the watch, whose silver-colored dial is enhanced by a blue “Superocean” inscription. The 44-millimeter stainless-steel case is distinguished by the Ocean Conservancy logo engraved on the back. The watch comes with a pair of NATO straps made of an innovative material repurposed from nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets from oceans around the world. The packaging is also made from 100% recycled material.
