The partnership with Ironman® is ideal for Breitling, bringing two premium brands together for the first time. Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling, said, “We’re particularly excited to be working with Ironman® The three members of our Triathlon Squad have all distinguished themselves in IRONMAN® events. The sport has enjoyed enormous popularity and the performance and endurance of its great competitors reflect Breitling’s values perfectly.” The Ironman® Triathlon Series offers athletes the opportunity to push themselves further than they ever thought possible by swimming 2.4 miles (3.8 kilometers), cycling 112 miles (180 kilometers), and running 26.2 miles (42.2 kilometers) en route to completing one of the world’s most challenging single-day endurance races and earning the coveted title of Ironman.
The Breitling Superocean Automatic 44 IRONMAN® Limited Edition, which celebrates the partnership with IRONMAN and its events, is a member of Breitling’s popular family of Superocean divers’ watches. It has a 44-millimeter stainless-steel case and a black dial featuring the unmistakable IRONMAN® logo. It is presented on a red Diver Pro III rubber strap with a pin buckle. Its ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel is an essential feature for divers as it can be used to track the elapsed time underwater. The numerals, indexes, and hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, a luminescent material that allows optimal readability in any lighting conditions. The COSC-certified chronometer has central hour, minute, and second hands. This self-winding watch is powered by a Breitling Caliber 17, an automatic mechanical movement that offers a power reserve of 38 hours. It is water-resistant to an incredible 100 bar (1,000 meters).
