Beverly Hills Is the Inspiration for Breitling's New Black-and-Gold Dive Watch
Rodeo Drive has become the new home of the LA flagship.
Located at 216 North Rodeo Drive, in a fashionable shopping enclave known as Two Rodeo, Breitling's fourth boutique in Los Angeles is now open for business. In collaboration with Westime Group, the shop, as well as its sister store in Westfield's Century City mall, is operated as a partnership between Breitling and a global retailer.
Adding a sleek black ceramic and 18-karat red gold combo to the brand's wildly popular Superocean Heritage line, Breitling has introduced the new Superocean Heritage B20 Automatic 44 Black Steel Beverly Hills Edition as a celebration of the Rodeo boutique's opening.
Originally designed as a professional diver's watch in 1957, the Superocean quickly gained popularity with amateur divers. It has been positioned as a three-hand watch ever since. In the past year, Breitling introduced the Superocean Heritage collection, which combines elements of the original watch with a modern manufacture movement, resulting in a new watch collection.
Presented in a 44 mm black DLC coated steel case with an 18 karat red gold bezel framing a high-tech black ceramic ring that is ultra-hard, scratch-proof, and scratch-proof, the new Beverly Hills edition is a true classic. This sleek black dial features triangular gold hour hands, lozenge-shaped gold minute hands, and cone-shaped hour markers, all of which are coated with Super-LumiNova to enhance visibility at night.
A COSC-certified automatic movement with a 70-hour power reserve, the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B20 ticks beneath the surface of the watch, which is based on the Tudor Caliber MT5612, the Tudor Caliber MT5612 being a product of Breitling’s 3 year partnership with the Rolex-owned brand to share their expertise in movement production.
Breitling's Rodeo Drive and Century City boutiques, as well as Breitling.com, are the only places where the model is available, and it retails for $7,395 in a limited edition of 50 pieces. Every watch is individually numbered 0 to 50 with the words "Beverly Hills Edition" engraved on the caseback.
