    Thoughts on the new SuperOcean Heritage II

    Hi folks,

    Any opinions on the new SuperOcean Heritage? It's got a ceramic bezel with a 12 o clock lume pip, redesigned hour and minute markers, and I think a new crown as well. It has a new Tudor derived movement called the B20 with a 70 hr power reserve. It also has a thicker case profile at 15mm v 13.6mm on the old SuperOcean Heritage.

    I like it except the part about them using a Tudor movement. I'm not faulting it or anything, I just would have preferred to see a pure Breitling in house movement.

    It looks like the B20 is actually based on the valjoux 7750... Caliber Breitling 20 - B20

    Regarless, I love that watch. I am debating between that and the transocean to be my next watch.

    That's interesting because on the Breitling news site it says otherwise - https://www.breitling.com/en/news/de...ritage-ii-4834

    Anyway, I definitely think SuperOcean Heritage because you can dress it up or down.

    Checking the tech specs for these new watches, it's the three hand versions that use the new Tudor based Breitling B20 (Manufacture) movement but the chronographs still use the 7750 based Calibre 13 movement. In any case, I really love the new re-designed version - especially the Bronze/brown dialed Chronograph - definitely on my list! The new ceramic bezel is very welcome feature and will add a new level of refinement to this model line. So glad they came out with something new and different than another black on black version of an existing model.

    I can't wait to see them and try them out. I'm against this trend of watches getting thicker but I won't judge until I try it.
