At 2017’s Baselworld Watch Fair, you must be impressed by the fact that Breitling and Tudor joined hands. Breitling supplied Caliber B01 for Tudor. In exchange, Tudor also provided Breitling with Caliber MT5612. It is generally known that there are such disparities between their brand positionings, so the skip-level cooperation confused me. In fact, it represents that Breitling won’t research and develop its own basic movements, and neither will Tudor. The advantage to this is that the cooperation can reduce the development cost and meet their product line. In short, it really kills two birds with one stone. It seems that a number of experts mind it. For most consumers, they are willing to spend money on good watches as long as they are of high quality, good look and good price.

For the hour hand, Superocean Heritage 42/46 has an arrow hand, while Superocean Heritage Ⅱ has a flat arrow within a slim line. The pencil-shaped minute hand was transformed into the sword-shaped one or the rhombic one. It’s clear that the date aperture was moved from three O’clock to six O’clock. With the ceramic bezel, Superocean Heritage Ⅱ is equipped with a Caliber B20, a modified Tudor Caliber MT5612. Its power reserve extends up to 70 hours. Comparing with Superocean Heritage watch with a Caliber B17-a modified ETA-2824-2, the latest generation has higher performance.
