Breitling Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition
This watch celebrates the partnership between Breitling and Ocean Conservancy and their shared commitment to helping maintain a healthy ocean and clean beaches.
On May 10, 2019, Breitling introduced a limited-edition model to commemorate its partnership with Ocean Conservancy. The launch, which was held in Bali in cooperation with Ocean Conservancy, was part of a beach cleanup initiative with 100 Breitling guests and hundreds of volunteers from Bali and the surrounding region. The cleanup effort resulted in hundreds of kilograms of trash and plastic being removed from the beach. On hand to support the cleanup were the members of Breitling’s Surfers Squad.

“I always say – and I believe that I can speak on behalf of the entire Surfers Squad – that beaches are, in effect, our offices ”, said Kelly Slater, arguably the most successful surfer of all time. “What we have seen here and on beaches and in oceans around the world is shocking, and I would like to thank Breitling and Ocean Conservancy for their shared fight against plastic pollution. Everyone can contribute to a cleaner environment – for ourselves and for future generations.”
Breitling CEO Georges Kern emphasized the importance of Breitling supporting Ocean Conservancy to raise global awareness of its missions and conservation initiatives. He said: “This cleanup initiative in Bali underscored the power of our partnership with Ocean Conservancy. With the launch of this first great watch, we want to add a meaningful and credible element to our partnership and its global projects.”
Janis Searles Jones, CEO of Ocean Conservancy, shares Georges Kern’s enthusiasm for her foundation’s partnership with Breitling. “We are thrilled that this partnership contributes to our important work to keep plastic and trash out of our oceans”, she said.

The Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition is distinguished by a caseback engraved with the Ocean Conservancy logo and the limited edition “1 OF 1000”. The 44-millimeter stainless-steel chronograph, which is powered by a Breitling Caliber 13 mechanical movement, features an ultra-hard scratch - and shock-resistant unidirectional rotating bezel. The luminescent central dot at 12 o’clock, a particularly useful feature for divers, as well as the minute and hour hands, are coated with blue Super-LumiNova®. This color complements the design of the watch, whose silver-colored dial is enhanced by a blue “Superocean” inscription. There are also blue accents and a blue central second hand as well as tone-on-tone subdials with blue or nickel-plated accents.
The Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy Limited Edition is presented with a pair of NATO straps made of ECONYL® yarn, an innovative material repurposed from nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets from oceans around the world. The straps are extremely durable, and the ECONYL® yarn material can be recycled indefinitely. The first satin NATO strap is blue-striped, the second plain blue. The packaging is also made from 100% recycled material.
A portion of the sales of the watch will be donated to Ocean Conservancy and its global fight against ocean pollution.
