Breitling announced to cooperate with IRONMAN, a subsidiary of Wanda Sports Group, to launch a new Super Ocean Automatic 44mm IRONMAN® Limited Watch (Model: A17371A11B1S1). As part of the partnership, Breitling became the official IRONMAN® luxury watch and will participate in a number of events, including the IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championships in Nice, France and the Vega® IRONMAN® World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, 2019.
To celebrate the partnership and release of the new watch, the two parties hosted a special event in Breitling’s New York boutique, co-chaired by Thierry Prissert, President of Breitling America, and Andrew Messick, President and CEO of IRONMAN Group. More than 150 guests attended the event, including Paula Newby-Fraser, known as Queen Kona, who has won the IRONMAN® World Championship eight times, and IRONMAN® Voice Mike Reilly.
To celebrate the partnership with IRONMAN® and its events, Breitling has added a new timepiece to the popular Super Ocean collection-the Super Ocean Automatic 44 mm IRONMAN® limited edition watch. The new watch features a 44 mm stainless steel case, a black dial with the IRONMAN® logo, and a red DiverPro III rubber strap with a pin buckle. A ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel can be used to track underwater time and is an essential feature for divers.
The numbers, time stamps and hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, a fluorescent material that ensures optimal legibility in any lighting conditions. This COSC-certified precision timepiece features a central hour, minute and second display.
This watch is equipped with a Breitling Caliber17 automatic mechanical movement, which provides 38 hours of power reserve. The water resistance of the entire watch reaches an astonishing 100 bar (about 1,000 meters).
The Super Ocean Automatic 44mm IRONMAN® Limited Watch is engraved with the IRONMAN® logo and the word ‘ONEOF300’, highlighting this watch’s rare and limited status. It is reported that the watch will be on sale at Breitling’s own e-commerce channels, select boutiques, as well as the IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championships in Nice and the Krona IRONMAN® World Championships.
