    Re: Thoughts on the new SuperOcean Heritage II

    I'm a huge fan of this watch - I love the ceramic bezel, the date window being at 6 on both versions, the hand set, all of it....with one exception. How the hell can Breitling possibly call it a "manufacture" (i.e. in-house) movement when it's actually a modified Tudor movement???? To be called a manufacture movement Breitling would've had to design and build it, which they haven't. Just a bit confused by that, as surely modifying a Tudor movement is no different to modifying an ETA 2824....and the B17 was never claimed to be a manufacture movement.

    I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the Tudor movement at all : it's just I disagree with it being passed off on their website as a manufacture movement.

    Maybe they had some input with Tudor and vice versa.

    Am I right in assuming that the bezel size hasn't changed? I'm thinking a bezel upgrade for my OG SOH might be on the cards

    If you manage to source the part and get it done, let me know please! I want to upgrade my bezel to ceramic as well.

    Love it. Wish they would make one without a date window.

    So does this Tudor movement make it an "in house" or "manufacture"? I'd like to see live pics of the three handed models, they look promising!

    I like the look. It's on my short list (which is getting longer)

    Watch schmatch. I'm just freaking out at the concept of not being able to label and categorise!

    Breitling makes clear on its website that the movement is in conjunction with Tudor. If Breitling manufactures this movement, to an original design by Tudor, well... Think of another label because the current ones don't work!

    I've long been an admirer of the SOH but I think this version II hits it out of the park. The bezel material and the pip are worth upgrades. I love the new handset. They made a great design even better IMO.
