Breitling has collaborated with Outerknown, the impeccably casual, ethical clothing line co-founded by pro-surfer Kelly Slater, on a cool new dive watch made to Slater's exacting standards. The Superocean Héritage II Chronograph 44 Outerknown represents a first for the storied Swiss watch brand: the strap is crafted from ECONYL yarn made from recycled nylon waste like old fishing nets, highlighting Outerknown's commitment to cleaning up the world's oceans.
The watch features a DLC-coated stainless-steel 44mm case, an ultra-hard scratch-and shock-resistant unidirectional ceramic bezel with a luminescent central dot at the 12 o’clock position and a caseback engraved with the Outerknown logo. The Super-LumiNova coating on the dot and the hour and minute hands also emit a blue light instead of the standard green.
Water resistant to 660 ft., the limited edition pieces are priced at $7,100 apiece. The coolness and cred is free with purchase.
