Breitling has just unveiled another blast from the past with its new SuperOcean Heritage ’57 watch. Originally dating back to 1957, the SuperOcean channeled the waves and sand of California for a laid-back and fun dive watch. Recalling surfers and beachcombers alike, the SuperOcean was an effortless watch that was the ultimate companion when catching a wave.

Decades later, the new SuperOcean Heritage ‘57 embodies every bit of that Bohemian presence yet updates the watch with modern specs. Sitting at 42mm on the wrist, the SuperOcean Heritage ’57 features a ceramic bezel ring, Breitling’s COSC-certified Caliber 10 movement (42 hours power reserve), and 100 meters of water resistance. With the launch of the SuperOcean Heritage, a special rainbow version will be released. Limited to 250 examples, the rainbow limited-edition sees yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, red, and orange across the 3, 6, 9 and 12-hour markers.

Breitling CEO Georges Kern comments, “The Capsule Collections let us tell some of our brand’s most inspiring 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 the freedom found on endless sandy beaches and in the search for the perfect wave.”

Those interested can expect to find the collection launching in May where the non-rainbow editions will retail for £3,590 GBP ($4,480 USD) for the leather strap version and £3,990 GBP ($4,982 USD) for the steel-mesh bracelet edition. Head over to Breitling now to locate your nearest AD.
