The breiting super ocean traditional chronograph watch costs about $40,000. If you haven’t noticed, pricing does not always seem to make sense in the watch industry. Sometimes, other interesting watches are destroyed by retail prices, and these prices only disturb consumers’ sense of rationality. Sometimes these prices are too high, sometimes the price is fair, but consumers do not understand or understand the reasons for high costs. In either case, pricing practices often do not integrate with consumer expectations or perceived value. Considering the highly active watch enthusiasts and the conversations they contain, this may be the biggest “problem” faced by the luxury goods industry. They seek to confirm or reject many decisions made by the watch industry.
At Baselworld in 2016, Cheap Breitling Replica Watches shared with us the new “Time and Space Worm” version of the Super Marine Heritage. “Chronoworks” is a term I haven’t heard of before Breitling. It sounds like their version of the audio and video store. They adjust their actions for better performance. In this case, the Breitling Chronoworks team started with the self-made Breilting caliber B01. Breitling pointed out that after the “optimization” of their “performance lab” (Chronoworks), the “five innovations” of this movement are now called “caliber BC01.”
What is innovation? The problem is not “what” but “if” these add up to Breitling’s proposed price. The chronometric performance laboratory’s innovations in motion include ceramic substrates and gear-drive bridges (relative to metal), silicon wheels, silicon escapements, variable inertia wheels, and elastic tooth profiles. This all sounds cool, but what is the actual cost and what is the performance gain?
All of these features are actually intended to do something. The first is to reduce the tendency of parts to wear, reduce friction, eliminate magnetic effects, increase accuracy, and reduce use time. Swiss Breitling Watches didn’t mention all of them, but I can tell you the meaning of these parts. Interestingly, all these have caused great controversy in the traditional watch industry. This is related to the fact that metal parts are being replaced by non-metallic parts. If these actions are still mechanical, why do you have to make a fuss?
Some watch manufacturers are concerned that, unlike metal parts that can be relatively easily duplicated, parts such as ceramics or silicon parts will not be easily copied in the future when repairs or repairs are required. This is technically correct, but it is based only on existing technologies. We just don’t know if there will be a technology for the rapid production of silicon or ceramic parts in the near future. However, I do agree that the availability of future parts is a problem for non-metallic moving parts.
Another unreliable (for me) complaint about non-metallic parts is that, unlike traditional steel, brass, gold, etc., the surface of non-metallic parts cannot be decorated. This is to some extent correct. You can polish the ceramic, but you can’t really sculpt it. Silicon, you can’t do anything at all. At the end of the day, these parts won’t be as attractive as metal parts. They asked, if the watch is not beautiful, why use a mechanical watch?
I appreciate this view, but I don’t think it will stand up in the long run. In my opinion, watch brands are obliged to provide consumers with choices, and consumers choose what they want to invest in. For those who can afford the refined and beautiful people of Philippe Dufour, it is easy for them to sacrifice pure performances in exchange for beauty. People want a reliable everyday wear, not an electronic watch, which may be a better sporting service made up entirely of non-metallic parts. Indeed, I hope we are moving in this direction. Brands like Ulysse Nardin and Breitling Replica Watches have spent years researching non-metallic parts. When will we see the industrialization movement without metal or very little metal?
From a performance standpoint, BC01 sport has a 100-hour energy reserve, which is 70 hours above B01. This is the only real metric I think Fake Breitling Watches has posted on improving performance. However, I believe I heard that they mentioned a 75% increase in performance between BC01 and B01. I am not entirely sure what this means, but the 75% increase in accuracy and reliability seems promising. Perhaps even $40,000 – promised to the right collector.
In addition, the sport will continue to operate at 4Hz (28,800 bph), including a 12-hour timer, date, and, of course, time. Through the watch’s sapphire crystal case, you can see the movement of the watch. Obviously, it is different from the inventory B01 of all black parts and some unique elements. In spite of this, it seems to me that there are too many parts that are not yet completed at the time of processing, and at these prices, I think some consumers may expect some manual processing. Why wear a sports watch? It’s really part of the Performance Lab in the world of high-end watches. I think that the expectation of many consumers is that if Breitling Replica tells the story of how they will move their stock and hand it to a special timekeeping lab that they make, then this sport will run better. The effect will be better.
For me, this is a value proposition that can be equal to $40,000. I want Chronoworks watches to be a fraction of the sales price of more or less the same sports watch brands, but …. highly functional and decorative. For example, if Porsche hand-shaped body panels and carefully adjusted engine, hand-made several Carrera models. It’s like a wagon that only crazy collectors can appreciate. Well, this is at least my opinion on Breitlin’s possible future perspective. Brettling can choose to use them together with their chronology.
In addition to the BC01 movement (which, of course, is the certification of the COSC Astronomical Clock), just as anyone cares, there are now standards that are much higher than the standard. Here’s why COSC doesn’t make their games better.) The quality of the shell is really good in terms of polish and overall feel. This dial also has a unique design that is different from other Breitling Superocean watches. I don’t think it’s an upgrade, but it’s a bit different. I like to see brands like the Breitling experiment.
Matching the 100-meter waterproof black ceramic housing is a new rubber strap (“Aero Classic”) that looks like a Breitling mesh metal bracelet, which you can find in other versions of the Breitling Superocean heritage. I do think that Breitling should include this strap, in addition to a black-coated steel or titanium plate of other polished stencil metal bracelets. This will help the watch’s value proposition to be a bit more. Rubber is a good thing, but in terms of performance, you just can’t beat a good metal bracelet.
It is difficult to predict where Breitling will take their time-varying products. They certainly need to share this story better and explain the source of the value. In addition, I think this may be Breitling’s “over-engineering lab” where their core inventory watches sometimes become incredibly limited editions that are carefully sorted and adjusted for performance in any mass-produced product. It is meaningless.
To get things back to reality, the Breitling Superocean Heritage in Valjoux 7750 is priced at about $6,000, while the Chronomat watch in Breitling b01 is priced at about $9,000. Breitling’s offer for 100 limited-edition bs0161e4/BE91-256S Breitling Superocean Heritage Chronoworks is even higher with a retail price of $39,295.
