SuperOcean 38 Vs 42

Weight in please on the 38 with small seconds Vs the 42
I only mentioned resale in case I don’t like it in the long run.
Which color. Blue or Black?

I love my superocean 42

I just received this from my wife for Xmas. I was looking for the perfect summer, beach, pool watch, this is it. 42mm is perfect for my 7 1/4Ē wrist, Iím not sure how big your wrist is but 36mm is small. I have been eyeing these new Superoceanís ever since they were released, they are just awesome.

Bang for the buck is hard to beat. I love matte dials, applied markers and brushed cases with polished sides. It also has great lume and itís running at +3! I am working on finding the resting position at night that will slow it downs bit to improve accuracy but I am super happy with a little fast. It is an outsourced 2824 but I have read that Breitling does modify it for better accuracy, and it is COSC certified.

All I can tell you is that the new Superoceanís are great divers that can take whatever you throw at them, true tool watches, not jewelry. I find it super comfy on the wrist and I am very happy with this purchase. Shop around and find a AD that will give you about 30% off and you will have made a wonderful purchase.

When it comes to Breitling, a brand of larger size by nature, 42 is always better than 38.

Blue always more desirable on Superoceans as well, but black is safe too.

Look at a Heritage II 42 as well if you get the chance.

Definitely the 42.

I'm looking for a Superocean Heritage 42 with the blue bezel and white dial. Looks fantastic.

Normally I'm not a Breitling fan (just not my style)- but the new blue dial SuperOcean 42 caught my eye yesterday. I REALLY like it. I haven't been to an AD to see one in person yet but definitely will soon. Was pleasantly surprised by the price also.
