At the height of the pandemic last April, Swiss made replica Breitling launched a limited edition Superocean Heritage ’57 with a rainbow-colored dial with part of the proceeds benefiting frontline health-care workers in some of the most affected countries.
The piece was such a hit, the brand followed up with a blue-dial version, limited to 1,000 pieces, in May. The 42mm steel fake Superocean Heritage ’57 Limited Edition II (US$4,520 on leather strap and US$5,025 on a steel mesh bracelet) brings a colorful and uplifting spirit to the retro design modeled on the original SuperOcean from 1957 with a concave bidirectional ceramic bezel and a dial with oversized indices.
Breitling donates CHF400 (US$412) from the sale of each watch to be divided equally among six medical charities in the U.S., UK, France, Italy, and Japan. To kick off the fund-raising, the brand donated an additional CHF1,000 for each of the first 100 watches sold worldwide on its website. In total, Breitling will donate CHF500,000, more than a half-million dollars.
