Breitling has dropped a trio of brightly colored Chronomat Automatic 36 watches as part of a seasonal capsule collection.

The South Sea Capsule Collection features lacquered dials in beige, midnight blue and mint green with matching alligator straps secured with folding clasps. The 36mm stainless steel watches feature golden hands and hour markers, each of which is set with a single diamond, while the unidirectional rotating bezels are set with a mix of gemstones graduating through yellow, orange, pink and red tones.

Inside of each watch is the Breitling Calibre 10, a 4Hz COSC-certified automatic chronometer with a power reserve of 42 hours.

The collection also fits into Breitling’s partnership with DREST, an interactive luxury fashion game for mobile devices, with the Swiss watch brand joining more than 200 global fashion brands already signed up. Players can no only take on the role of stylist using the latest products from these brands but also buy them through the platform as well.

A DREST mood board challenge goes live tomorrow, March 17 at 12 noon GMT, running for three days.

The South Sea Capsule Collection is available now via Breitling, priced $8,500 USD.
