Breitling Superocean 44 Automatic Ironman Limited Edition

Breitling has already launched special-edition watches in association with the Ocean Conservancy, Norton Motorcycles and Bentley Motors (its automotive partner). Now, the brand has currently announced the Superocean Automatic 44 Ironman Limited Edition. It is one of the most limited luxury timepieces of the brand, crafted in the Superocean 44 Special series’ ‘ocean pilot’ style. The watch is made in collaboration with the famous Ironman Triathlon of long-endurance distance races.

The World Triathlon Corporation organises the Ironman sporting events that consist of a 112mile bicycle ride, a 26.22mile marathon run and a 2.4mile swim. Indeed, it represents some of the most popular and extreme races on this globe.

The Official Luxury Watch of Breitling Ironman Race Series

Breitling has indeed never participated in the historic Ironman competition in horological perspective. Thus, the new Breitling Superocean Ironman aims to revise it this time, becoming the official watch of the Ironman sports events.

The watch is limited to only 300pieces. While it is ideally not a timepiece to be worn during competition or training, the new Superocean is created for those who have participated in the strenuous contest. However, it is undoubtedly also a watch to use and relish for participants of the Ironman race series, even after many years of their retirement from the competition.

Unique Features: Breitling Superocean Ironman Limited Edition

The Breitling Superocean 44 Automatic Ironman special edition is virtually scanty in design, flaunting a stainless steel case of 44mm.

  • The watch sports a black dial and a unidirectional black rotating bezel made up of scratch-resistant ceramic
  • The bold and classic black dial flaunts an oversized ‘Ironman’ logo in red-and-white at 3 o’clock
  • Moreover, the brand equips the case with a screw-locked twin-gasket crown, making it water-resistant up to an impressive depth of 1,000m

Interestingly, the minute track, the arrow-tip of seconds-hand and the rubber strap perfectly echo the red ‘M’ in the IRONMAN logo. So, what else?

  • The black dial comes with a larger numerals and hour markers that are coated with Super-LumiNova
  • The bezel’s dive scale has an inverted triangle marker at 12 o’clock
  • The date complication is fitted in a window at 3 o’clock mark

Like any other Superocean 44 Automatic timepieces, the new Ironman Limited Edition watch runs on Breitling self-winding Calibre 17. Fitted with 25 jewels, the automatic movement offers 38hours of power reserve and a high frequency of 28,800vph. However, the additional aspect of attraction is the timepiece’s case-back.

The case-back of the new Breitling Superocean Ironman watch is etched with the logo of ‘Ironman’ as well as the saga ‘One of 300’.

The Breitling Squad Initiative

An event was held at Breitling’s New York boutique for commemorating the partnership and the timepiece. However, Thierry Prissert, Breitling USA President and CEO as well as President of The Ironman Group Andrew Messick co-hosted the event. The manufacturer unveiled three new players in its ‘Triathlon Squad’. So, who are they?

One is Jan Frodeno who won Ironman World Championships back-to-back in 2015 and 2016.

Second is Chris McCormack, who has achieved two titles in 2007 and 2010.

The third is Daniela Ryf, whose accomplishments have been magnificent. She has won four titles in the past five years.

The Breitling Superocean 44 Automatic Ironman limited edition watch will be exclusively available at the brand’s e-commerce channel, in specific Breitling boutiques and also, at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship site in Nice as well as the World Championship in Kailua-Kona.
