Breitling SuperOcean 2005 Yachting - Like NOS

almost unworn condition - striking look

The Breitling SuperOcean 2005 comes from a period when various watch brands set the trends for the coming decades with their full creativity and bold ideas. This diver's chronograph was first introduced in 1964 and featured a very unusual and creative design.

While the classic chronograph featured a central chrono seconds hand and minute totalizer, the SuperOcean featured a single central minute hand. But how to signify the activity status of the chronograph if there is no second hand? That is done by the small round window at 6 o'clock. It is black in the initial state. If you start the chrono, the status display jumps to the second of its three positions and the large green dot is displayed. If you stop the chronograph, a small green dot appears. After resetting the chronograph, the black dot will return again. This intelligent functionality was accomplished through an in-house modification of the Valjoux 7731 caliber.

This particular Breitling SuperOcean 2005 is the second generation (MK3) from the early 70's with a cool yachting bezel. A special look of this watch is created thanks to the large tritium markers and the square-tipped chrono minute hand. At 9 o'clock is a sub-dial with running seconds.

What makes this example so special and rare is its almost unworn condition with only minimal signs of storage (like new old stock). The case is unpolished and has razor-sharp edges. The dial is absolutely perfect. The yachting bezel is also preserved without scratches and shows rich colors. There is a sticker on the back which, given its condition, suggests that it dates back to the year the watch was manufactured. In any case, the engravings behind the sticker are very deep and sharp.

The Breitling SuperOcean 2005 is still one of the underrated vintage watches. It is constantly increasing in value and is extremely difficult to find in good condition. The specimen offered here can hardly be replaced due to its almost new condition and rarity.
