Breitling has announced two launches in partnership with Outerknown, the sustainable apparel brand co-founded by surfing legend and Breitling Surfers Squad member Kelly Slater.
In addition to the new Superocean Outerknown watch, Breitling has introduced the first Outerknown Econyl yarn NATO strap collection. The 18 ecologically responsible straps are crafted from Econyl yarn, a material created from regenerated nylon waste, one source of which is fishing nets from the world’s oceans.
The first Superocean watches were designed with a focus on the underwater challenges faced by divers. The new Superocean and Superocean Heritage models are more than equal to those tasks, but Breitling has broadened its focus to take on one of the greatest challenges of all: to help ensure that future generations will have the chance to enjoy healthy oceans and clean beaches.
The 18 references make a profound environmental statement and feature six different colours and four different sizes. The new Superocean Outerknown watch buckles and keepers are available in two finishes: stainless steel and black DLC-coated stainless steel.
