Breitling has partnered with IRONMAN, Wanda Sports Group company, in launching the Breitling Superocean IRONMAN Limited Edition timepiece.
As part of the partnership, Breitling becomes the Official Luxury Watch of IRONMAN and will also be present at several events, including the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France, and the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling, said, “We’re particularly excited to be working with IRONMAN. The three members of our Triathlon Squad have all distinguished themselves in IRONMAN events. Jan Frodeno won back-to-back IRONMAN World Championships in 2015 and 2016, and Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack has also claimed two titles – in 2007 and 2010. It goes without saying that Daniela Ryf’s accomplishments have been spectacular: she is the reigning IRONMAN World Champion, having won four straight titles along with her four IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in the last five years. The sport has enjoyed enormous popularity and the performance and endurance of its great competitors reflect Breitling’s values perfectly.”
The new Superocean Ironman Limited Edition comes with a 44-mm stainless-steel watch with a black dial featuring the unmistakable Ironman logo.
The ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel is an essential feature for divers as it can be used to track the elapsed time underwater.
The numerals, indexes, and hands of the limited edition watch are all coated with Super-LumiNova, a special luminescent material that allows optimal readability in dark conditions.
The watch is powered by Breitling’s self-winding Caliber 17, which has 38 hours of power reserve.
The timepiece is water-resistant to an incredible 100 bar (1000 meters). The caseback is engraved with the Ironman logo and the watch is paired to a red Diver Pro III rubber strap with a pin buckle.
Only 300 examples of the watch will be available for sale. Priced at $3,950 it is exclusively on Breitling’s own website, in selected Breitling boutiques, and on-site at the IRONMAN70.3 World Championship in Nice and IRONMANWorld Championship in Kailua-Kona.
