Breitling & Kelly Slater Teamed Up On A Surf-Inspired Dive Watch

Sep 30, 2019

Category: Gear

When it comes to interesting collaborations, Breitling has no qualms with standing among the watch industry’s finest proprietors. They’ve fostered an extensive catalog of partnerships with influential and iconic companies and now they’re continuing their famed partnership with Kelly Slater’s eco-conscious lifestyle brand, Outerknown.

This isn’t the first time that the two have come together on a bespoke wristwear project, but the introduction of Breitling’s lauded Superocean Automatic 44 alongside a series of Outerknown’s ethically-sourced ECONYL Yarn NATO straps is certainly a first. To accent the watch’s 44mm stainless steel case, each example is outfitted with a bespoke band made from recycled nylon waste — a byproduct of the company’s commitment to cleansing the world’s waterways of unwarranted plastics. A Breitling Caliber 17 automatic movement and 38-hour power reserve keep the Superocean as accurate as possible, while a ratcheted unidirectional bezel, matte green dial, and 1000-meter water-resistance pay homage to the watch’s diving heritage. Head over to Breitling’s website to pick up one of your own for $4,200.
