Channel the spirit of the Scottish Highlands

Breiling Superocean Heritage '57 Highlands four watches
Breitling

If you’ve been binge-watching the latest season of The Crown, or you’re simply craving some of that good ole fresh Highlands breeze, we’ve got just the watch for you. Breitling, the iconic watchmaker known for pushing boundaries, has once again captured our attention with the release of the Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands Collection. Inspired by the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands, this series of timepieces transcends the ordinary and introduces a breath of fresh air into the world of luxury watches and watches for men.

Breitling has ingeniously channeled misty landscapes, ancient castles, and the undeniable charm of the Scottish Highlands into the design of the Superocean Heritage ’57, creating a collection that is as visually striking as it is technically proficient. The watches pay homage to the adventurous spirit of the famous destination, and every glance at your wrist is a journey into the heart of the country.

Breitling watches don’t shy away from making a statement, and neither do the Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands pieces. The collection features vibrant colors, including a daring orange, a deep blue reminiscent of Scottish lochs, and a lush green that echoes the landscape’s verdant hills. Furthermore, it’s intriguing to witness Breitling’s commitment to pushing boundaries and challenging the notion that dive watches must exclusively cater to a life submerged.

The Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 specifics

The Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 stands as a marvel of watch engineering, boasting an exquisite fusion of materials and cutting-edge features. Crafted with precision, the case material combines the robustness of stainless steel with the opulence of 18k red gold, offering a striking visual contrast that defines sophistication. Its water resistance, rated at 10 bars, ensures not just style but functionality, making it a reliable companion in various environments.

With a diameter of 38 mm and a thickness of 9.3 mm, this timepiece strikes the perfect balance between presence and wearability. Weighing approximately 110.5 grams, the watch embraces your wrist with a substantial yet comfortable feel, while the power reserve of approximately 42 hours speaks to the watch’s efficiency, ensuring it keeps ticking throughout the day.

Delving into the technical data, the Breitling 10 caliber powers the self-winding mechanical movement, vibrating at 28,800 vph and adorned with 25 jewels for optimal performance. The case is not just housing; it’s a meticulously designed entity with a screwed-in case back, a bidirectional ratcheted bezel, and a non-screw-locked crown with two gaskets.

The crystal, a cambered sapphire, glare proofed on both sides, adds a layer of durability and clarity to the design. The stainless steel strap, presented as a curved metal bracelet, seamlessly complements the overall aesthetic with a folding clasp and buckle made of stainless steel, perfectly sized at 16 mm. Of course, we can’t forget the complimentary second strap in a tweed material, in case you forgot that these watches are all about Scotland.

Available for a limited duration

The official price stands at $6,250. In a departure from the conventional model of either entering the standard production line or only coming out as a few exclusive watches, the Breitling Superocean Heritage ’57 Highlands series is set to grace the market for a limited duration. During this undisclosed timeframe, these four models, inspired by the Scottish Highlands, will only be available in the quantity Breitling produces.

Watches are some of the most coveted items in a man's arsenal. The right watch can make or break an outfit. The right watch strap can change everything. Among all the watches a man can pick up, a tool watch is one of the most common. An airline pilot keeps us all safe with the best pilot watch in the skies. Explorers the world over discover the wonders of the world with the kind of stellar field watches that keep them on the right path. Military and civilian divers alike uncover long-lost ships and artifacts at the bottom of the oceans with the best dive watches on the market.

And these are some of the best automotive-inspired watches you can find.

Driving as an inspiration
All it is good for is getting us from point A to point B. It takes us from home to work; then, we don't do it again until we get to run out of the office and go back home. But somehow, driving is as deep in the DNA of Americans as apple pie and rebellious tea dumping. Since Henry Ford created the Model T and we began taking drives to clear our heads or take in the sights of some of the most majestic road trips in America, the brands of America have created gear and apparel inspired by it.

When Swatch released the Moonswatch collection in 2022, it was the ultimate buy for any watch lover. The beautifully crafted timepieces were one-of-a-kind and gave a special ode to the Omega Speedmaster. Each of the eleven watches was crafted under its own ‘mission,’ and each aptly came with its own set of colors. The unique color personality of each watch made it a must-have for watch lovers who loved the details similar to the more luxurious Speedmaster but with their unique color markings. During this first release, the anticipation of these watches was extreme, with consumers only allowed to purchase one timepiece at a time due to the increased attention and demand. 

Although the Moonswatch collection has since seen better days, with less than enthusiastic limited edition releases, their newest tease reminds everyone of the craze behind the first Moonswatch release, with the help of a very recognizable friend.
