The latest collection from Breitling is making waves to clean up the oceans

When it comes to diving watches, there can’t be many with more depth than Breitling. After all, these guys have been sea-worthy since the original Superocean was released in 1957. So, it makes sense that they’re now at the business end of keeping waters and beaches clean, too, thanks to a new watch and Nato strap collection.

While the Superocean Outerknown is the perfect dive buddy – the bezel keeps your deep-sea timing on point – the series of 18 straps are made with recycled nylon waste, turned into ECONYL yarn.

But let’s be clear, Breitling’s commitment is no eco-fad. In 2018 it celebrated the partnership with sustainable manufacturer Outerknown – co-founded by legend of the surf, Kelly Slater – with the Superocean Heritage Chronograph 44 Outerknown. And it’s a conscious coupling that clearly has legs.

While made for the Superocean Outerknown, the new straps can be attached to any Breitling watch, meaning your choice isn’t just limited to saving the world. Style and substance, at last.
