Inspired by the vintage model that was very popular when it was launched in the middle of the last century, Breitling watches with the designation Superocean Legacy 42 and Superocean Legacy 46 are two models with the same technical characteristics. The only difference between replica watches them can be deduced from the names of these models. The smaller one is 42mm in diameter, while the larger one is 4mm wider (Breitling used to have a model with a smaller 38mm diameter, but this version is no longer available). The pair of replica watches features a nostalgic, minimalist and classic style that replicates the general characteristics of the vintage model that was used as inspiration, and includes an automatic mechanical movement.
These models have a pure design and very simple and legible dials with hour markers (and with slim minute markers on the flange with luminous dots behind each of the hour markers, except for the 15, 30, 45 and 60 minute positions which are represented with small Arabic numerals) and a date aperture at the bottom of the dial. One of the striking details is the arrow-shaped tip of its hour hand, borrowed from the watch it was modeled after. Both the hour and minute hands are luminous for better visibility, unlike the large seconds hand present. The classic-style dial is complemented by the company's vintage logo that was also used in the original 1950s model.
The Superocean Legacy 42 and Superocean Legacy 46 straps breitling replica include unidirectional rotating ratchet bezels with a gear-shaped edge for an additional aesthetic impression. The bezel in both of these models can be black, green or bronze and is paired with a dial in the same color or with a silver Stratus face. In each case, the dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal, which is anti-reflective on both sides.
