Breitling has teamed up with sustainable clothing company Outerknown for a new SuperOcean watch and the first collection of 18 NATO-style straps in environmentally-friendly ECONYL® yarn. The straps are compatible with all Breitling watches.

Breitling has been known for its outstanding dive watches since 1957, when it introduced the original SuperOcean. The brand continues to produce superb underwater performers, but in recent years, it has also underscored its commitment to clean oceans and beaches through its partnerships with Outerknown and the sustainable apparel manufacturer’s co-founder Kelly Slater, who is described as the world’s greatest surfer. Like Breitling, Outerknown works with the NGO Ocean Conservancy to raise awareness of the problem of marine waste. In 2018, Breitling celebrated the partnerships with its Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44 Outerknown. The brand is excited about offering a new watch inspired by this partnership.

The Breitling Superocean Outerknown features a 44-millimeter stainless-steel case with a ratcheted unidirectional bezel, a feature that allows divers to time their dives accurately. It has a green dial and central hour, minute, and second hands that, like the numerals and indexes, are coated with Super-LumiNova ®, a luminescent material that makes them easily readable in any lighting conditions. The Superocean Outerknown is presented on a khaki green Outerknown NATO strap made of ECONYL®. The Superocean Outerknown is powered by a Breitling Caliber 17, which offers a power reserve of approximately 38 hours. The COSC-certified chronometer is water resistant to 100 bar/1000 meters, so it will more than meet the needs of any underwater adventurer.

Outerknown ECONYL® yarn NATO strap collection takes the commitment to a new level. The straps are made of ECONYL® yarn, a material created exclusively from recycled nylon waste. The 18 references make a profound environmental statement and feature six different colors and four different sizes, and come with a buckle in regular stainless steel or DLC-coated stainless steel. These models are as vibrant and stylish as they are ecologically sound.
