Pre-Owned Breitling 46mm Superocean Heritage, Blue Dial, Stainless Steel Mesh Bracelet, Ref. A1332024

The Breitling Superocean Heritage wristwatch was first introduced in 1957 as a professional diver’s watch. It was designed to meet the demands of deep-sea diving, featuring water resistance up to 200 meters. The watch quickly gained popularity for its robust construction and distinctive design, which included a unidirectional rotating bezel and large luminescent markers for readability underwater. In 2007, Breitling released an updated version, the Superocean Heritage, which retained the classic aesthetic while incorporating modern materials and technology, further solidifying its status as a timeless diver’s watch.

This Superocean Heritage A1332024 features a 46mm stainless steel case and a uni-directional rotating bezel with a black aluminum insert. The blue dial is equipped with luminescent hands and hour markers, a date reference, and black chronograph function subdials. This watch is powered by the self-winding Breitling 13 caliber movement and is complemented by a stainless steel mesh bracelet. The package includes the original box and papers dated 2016.

Description

The modern chronograph watch would not function as it does today without Breitling’s influence. Léon Breitling founded the company in 1884 already manufacturing innovative chronographs.  After his death in 1914, his son Gaston took control and produced one of the world’s first wrist chronographs with a separate pusher.  Gaston’s son Willy introduced the two-pusher chronograph and the iconic Chronomat in 1942, which added a slide rule with a chronograph.  In 1952 they produced the Navitimer with a built-in slide rule that became the official pilot’s watch for the AOPA pilot union. Astronaut Scott Carpenter found his Navitimer so useful that he asked Breitling to modify the watch to use a 24-hour dial, which he then wore into space in 1962 aboard a Mercury capsule.  To celebrate his 25th anniversary as head of the company, Willy also introduced the SuperOcean diver’s watch with a water-resistance of 200 meters.  Clearly, any admirer of chronographs should become familiar with Breitling.
