The brand's new Pastel Paradise capsule collection brings out all the colours you'll want to front this summer...

Breitling just introduced its latest creations for women offering a fresh new take on a classic timepiece. The SuperOcean Heritage '57 timepiece started off in the '50s as a divers' watch and it turned into a spectacular piece of arm candy – one that is all about colour, proportion, and of course substance.

Embodying the very essence of summer style, the timepieces in the new Pastel Paradise capsule collection are a retro twist on the classic, complete with a 38-mm stainless-steel case, a rotating bezel and bold indices.

Available in summer white, aquamarine, mint green, and iced latte – all with tone-on-tone dials, bezels, and straps – the collection is accompanied by a rainbow tangerine version (the real show-stopper). Made with hour markers and hands coated in Super-LumiNova®, it sings in hues of yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, red, and orange.

There's also an opportunity to customise your timepiece with a colour combination unique to you. The quick-exchange system allows you to swap out the luxe Saffiano calfskin leather straps for a lemon and raspberry sorbet hue.

"This modern-retro tribute to the original SuperOcean is an exciting addition to the Breitling family of ladies’ watches. Of course it’ll look great at work, but its fun-in-the-sun vibe might make you want to spend a weekend at the beach," says Breitling CEO Georges Kern, noting how the highly-coveted original was a nod to the rising popularity of seaside leisure in the 1950s and 1960s.
