    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. This benefits everyone - Breitling, Tudor and by the looks of it, consumers. If Breitling manufactures this movement, to an original design by Tudor, well... Think of another label because the current ones don't work...!

    Anybody seen a lume shot of the new models? From the website it looks like the bezel markers may be engraved (and hopefully lumed) in addition to the new pip. If so, that's a welcome upgrade indeed - the previous bezel was pretty useless.

    Highly doubt the markers on the bezel are lumed. If they were, there would be no need for a pearl in the 12:00 clock pip. Very few dive watches do fully lumed bezels anyways. Can only think of the Pelagos, Fifty Fathoms and older IWC Aquatimer that did this.

    The bezel itself still seems to be steel. Everyone is talking about a ceramic bezel but the description on Breitling's website says the bezel is steel and the band around the dial is now ceramic in the same color of the dial and bezel.

    From their website:(I'm thinking as with many divers the bezel is stainless but the insert is ceramic)

    Re: Thoughts on the new SuperOcean Heritage II

    Hi i need help, badly. Just about to buy a Breitling Superocean Heritage 46 tomorrow from a local AD in Singapore. Already called the sales guy I'm coming at noon tomorrow to buy it since i got a very good bargain. Then to my horror just discovered that a new one is coming in August with a ceramic bezal, new 70hrs reserve movement and the most important of all the lume marker on the bezel!! The question is should i wait for the new one? Or grab this at a discount price of $4300 singapore dollars, when the retail price is $6065 singapore dollars? HELP!!!!

    Btw the Superocean Heritage 2 retails at S$6680

    I would wait and get the new one, unless you like the original, then I would beat them up some more on price as this watch will soon flood the grey market for cheap as it will be NOS.

    I would wait to see both if possible at the same time :)

    Me personally would go for the ceramic updated version ..
    but wait it out and score a better deal if possible:)

    Good luck
    Don't forget to post pics of either or ;)

    Hi Fazboy, please do let us know if he's happy to swap the bezels for you.

    I'm in sing quite often and have an original model that would love a ceramic makeover.
