Yellow Is the New Black - Meet the New Breitling Superocean Automatic 46 Code Yellow UK Edition Watch

Jewellery & Watch News

Need something to brighten up your day? Breitling is ready and waiting with its Superocean Automatic 46 Superocean Code Yellow Watch, exclusive to UK stockists only! 
Colour is a huge topic in the watch industry right now. Over the last couple of years, we have witnessed some truly outrageous dial colours and some rare shades that we know will go down in history. Owning a colourful watch is not just about celebrating individuality and expression, but also an excuse to add something premium and of value to your collection. Rare and “out there” dial colours are investment propositions, after all.


As far as colourful dials on Breitling watches go, we’ve seen some remarkably fetching shades. Aside from ice blue, mint green and copper colours, females have the alluring mother-of-pearl dial options to choose from, not to mention the men’s Endurance Pro Ironman watches available in red, turquoise and orange. Breitling never needed to focus on the easy sell. It has never even had to concern itself with producing mainstream colours. The Swiss watchmaker is as bold and confident as the colours it uses in its dials and devoted enthusiasts trust in the direction that the brand steers them in.


Life’s Just Better in Yellow

The new Breitling Superocean Automatic 46 Code Yellow UK Edition Watch is an extension of the radically rethought design that we got the privilege to experience back in 2022. The Superocean watch was revamped and released in several sizes including 36, 42, 44 and 46mm. The largest of the lot came in a few different dial colours. Perhaps none, however, were as eye-catching as this new Code Yellow iteration, released just in time for Watches and Wonders 2024, set to take place next month in Geneva. 


The New Breitling Superocean Automatic 46 Code Yellow UK Edition Watch 

There are a few key features to mention about the new Breitling Superocean Automatic 46 Code Yellow watch. The first is that it comes as an exclusive design to UK stockists only. As a proud official stockist of genuine Breitling watches, we here at Jura Watches are proud to offer this model, both on a stainless steel option and black rubber band as part of our online collection and in our C W Sellors stores. These strap options all come with Breitling’s new micro-adjustment feature too. It lets you wear the watch over wetsuits and rash guards if you’re planning on taking the watch into the water. If not, however, it will still adjust up to 15mm in length for complete wearer comfort. It’s a useful feature that you might want to take advantage of in hot climates – perhaps when travelling. When the wrist swells, this feature easily accommodates by moving slightly out by a few millimetres without the need for any fancy tools.


Another feature to mention about the new Superocean Code Yellow watch is that being from the larger 46mm family, it features the brand’s patented rotating bezel lock feature. The design is geared for diver safety and prevents the bezel from moving accidentally to extend dive time when you’re underwater. That’s not the only diver-friendly feature of this watch though. As the model is primed for underwater use and plenty of hours on the beach, it features legible hour and minute hands as well as hour markers that are coated with a generous helping of Super-LumiNova. This material glows richly in dark environments, releasing a high-impact and colourful emission that enables you to read the time whether underwater or not.

The vibrant yellow dial of this Breitling Superocean Automatic 46 Code Yellow UK Edition watch features the usual Arabic numerals placed at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, as well as the rectangular markers that have come to represent the Superocean design. Surrounding the dial is a clear white minute track on the flange, framed, of course, by that striking glossy black ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel. Its design will only move in the counter-clockwise direction, plus its markers remain highly visible for times when you need to reference crucial timings underwater.


The new Breitling Superocean Automatic 46 Code Yellow UK Edition watch is made from stainless steel and measures, as its name suggests, a diameter of 46mm. It also features a strong cambered sapphire crystal glass front with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant properties, as well as a 300-meter water-resistant rating. Underneath the dial and concealed being a solid steel caseback is the Calibre Breitling 17. It performs at a rate of 28 800 vibrations per hour and delivers an autonomy of 38 hours once fully powered. 


Carrying the much-loved characteristics of the Superocean range, this Breitling watch is perfect for any water-based pursuits be that a spot of diving, swimming, snorkelling, beach volleyball or other water sports. Its strong case, fitted with a screwed-down crown at 3 o’clock is also sand-resistant and able to withstand harsh coastal environments, as well as rough conditions out at sea. In what has undoubtedly received a new lease of life over recent years, the Breitling Superocean is ready to be enjoyed by modern luxury watch collectors. But should you be looking for something with a little more retro character, the Superocean Heritage collection is where you can find designs with a certain vintage charm. 


The new Superocean 46 Yellow Code watch, however, is sure to set pulses racing with that charged-up yellow display. The Swiss manufacturer has retained the faithful features of the line including the beautiful sloping edges and the contrasts in materials and tones used in the dial. Above all, the unique shape of the minute hand has been preserved – a hallmark of this dive watch design and its journey since the very beginning. Of course, being a practical tool, the minute hand should always be a distinctive feature of the dial and should stand out from the rest of the elements. Lastly, the new folding clasp and extension feature, paired with the patented bezel lock are functional features that add leverage to this watch as a purpose-built companion. Whether or not you wish to use the watch underwater is entirely your choice but part of the motive behind collecting a watch as action-ready as the Superocean is to know that it can if you want it to.
