Top 5 Breitling Watches for New Collectors

Breitling Superocean Heritage
Breitling’s tagline is “instruments for professionals”, and indeed, their watches are most synonymous with professional aviators, the military, and divers. While Breitling has its very own place among watch brands, they can certainly be enjoyed by all.


If you’re looking to add a Breitling to your collection, here are 5 highly functional, but accessible models you can start with:


Breitling Colt

#5 | Breitling Colt

Breitling first launched their Colt collection in the 1980s, but it was originally meant for the armed forces. Its military roots are very evident in its robust build, broad unidirectional rotating bezel, and the brand’s signature rider tabs.

When Breitling opened the collection to the public, it won over audiences with its combination of sturdiness, reliability, and a dynamic but readable design. With an attractive price point, it soon established itself as Breitling’s most accessible model.

Available in 36 – 44 mm sizes; black, blue and silver dials, and a variety of bracelets.



Breitling Avenger II

#4 | Breitling Aeromarine Avenger II

The Avenger line has been popular with pilots since its inception. The new generation Avenger II was presented in 2013, with improved technical capabilities: water-resistant up to 300 meters, and with a power reserve of 40 to 55 hours.

The Avenger II line also comes with a GMT model that allows a third timezone reading, and the Seawolf line – a super diver with up to 3,000 meter water resistance.

Available in 43 – 45 mm sizes; black, grey, white, yellow or blue dials, and a variety of bracelets and straps. SEE ALL BREITLING AVENGER II >



Breitling Superocean II

#3 | Breitling Superocean II 

The original Breitling Superocean was introduced in 1957 and marked the brand’s first foray into diving watches. In 2015, Breitling launched the revamped Superocean – this time, with modern updates.

It came in a thinner case, Arabic numeral or baton markers with luminous coating, and an internal circle of 24-hour indexes that can’t be found on any other Superocean watch.

Available in 36 – 44 mm sizes; black, white and blue dials, and a variety of bracelets.



Breitling Superocean Heritage

#2 | Breitling Superocean Heritage

Just like the Breitling Superocean II, the Superocean Heritage is inspired by the original Superocean of 1957. To preserve the spirit of the original model, they kept the vintage look and combined it with cutting-edge technology.

The Superocean Heritage comes with a high-tech unidirectional revolving bezel, luminescent markers, and an impressive power reserve of about 70 hours.

Available in 42 – 46 mm sizes, and a choice of rubber strap, stainless steel mesh bracelet or leather strap.  SEE ALL BREITLING SUPEROCEAN HERITAGE >



Breitling Navitimer

#1 | Breitling Navitimer

You can’t go wrong by choosing the brand’s most iconic model. The Breitling Navitimer is not just the brand’s most popular watch, it is also considered the ultimate tool watch for a pilot.

So what exactly makes it an icon? The super busy yet strangely legible dial, three registers in a panda or reverse panda color scheme, all confined between the famous slide rule bezel.

Available in 38 – 48 mm case sizes; grey, white, brown, blue and black dials, and a wide variety of bracelets and straps. SEE ALL BREITLING NAVITIMER >
