Enjoy Summer with Breitling's Superocean Heritage ’57 Pastel Paradise Capsule Collection
It's starting to feel like a summer of leisure with the Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 Pastel Paradise capsule collection. This latest addition to the watchmaker's iconic collection, it is a reinvention of the original Superocean, which was a nod to the rising popularity of seaside leisure during the 1950s and 60s.
“This modern-retro tribute to the original Superocean is an exciting addition to the Breitling family of ladies’ watches. Of course it’ll look great at work, but its fun-in-the-sun vibe might make you want to spend a weekend at the beach,” said Breitling CEO Georges Kern.
A quick glance is all it takes to notice the strong summery vibe of the collection, with happy colours such as summer white, aquamarine, mint green, and iced latte found on tone-on-tone dials, bezels, and straps.
The highlight of the collection, and also what stood out the most for us, is the Superocean Heritage '57 Pastel Paradise in rainbow tangerine. Boasting hour markers and hands coated in Super-Luminova, it features hues of yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, red, and orange. Want a custom colour combination of your own design? Breitling offers a quick exchange system to swap out the Saffiano calfskin leather straps, which are also available in lemon and raspberry sorbet.

Powering the watch is the COSC-certified Breitling Calibre 10 that boasts a power reserve of about 42 hours. While these timepieces seem too pretty for some rumble and tumble, they are, like any good ol' Breitling watches, still made to last—they’re water-resistant up to 100 metres. It's pertinent to know that the Superocean Heritage ’57 Pastel Paradise capsule collection is not part of the permanent range and will only be produced for a limited time during this summer season.
