This beautiful CORDURA Sea-Gull Watch is a variant sports model designed & created by SICURA S.A. It has a gunmetal blue face (blue with a tint of gray) with large-print markers. It features a white fixed inner bezel, which contrasts with its black rotating outer bezel. Its outer bezel is a unique & innovative creation, having raised markers.

SICURA built a strong alliance with BREITLING when SICURA CEO, Ernest Schneider took over & redeemed BREITLING from its near dissolution in 1979.

Schneider's game changer was the introducion of 3 new models: the BREITLING Jupiter, Mars & Pluto chronographs - all designed under SICURA specifications. After this success, Schneider decided that the SICURA brand has more potential when fitted into the inner workings of BREITLING than by itself!
