Since 1884, swiss luxury watchmaker Breitling has established a global reputation for highprecision timepieces, its pioneering role in the development of the wrist chronograph, and its uncompromising commitment to design excellence. In the 1940s, Breitling introduced its first Premier collection of truly elegant watches, which were defined by their fashionable flair. Now, the new Breitling Premier collection combines purpose with style, delivering quality, performance, and timeless design that are worthy of the watch brand’s proud legacy.
Recently launched in Singapore, the new Breitling Premier collection introduces five distinct models: the B01 Chronograph 42, the Chronograph 42, the Automatic 40, the Automatic Day & Date 40, and the B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green.
“Not only elegant, this collection embodies quality and performance that are pure Breitling. While Breitling is highly regarded for its aviator and diver’s watches, these eye-catching timepieces have been created especially for use on land,” said Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “This is the first modern Breitling collection dedicated to everyday elegance. With outstanding quality and performance, these watches bear our unmistakable brand DNA, but they have been created with a focus on style that beautifully complements their purpose.”
Firstly, the flagship watches in the new collection are the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 models, equipped with the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. Developed in-house by Breitling, the Caliber 01 has established itself as one of the finest mechanical watch movements in the world. The Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42 is presented in a robust 42mm stainlesssteel case with a transparent caseback, and is available with a dark blue or silver dial.
The blue-dial version offers the choice of either a blue alligator leather or brown nubuck strap or a stainless-steel bracelet. Meanwhile, the silver-dial model is available with a black nubuck or alligator leather strap or a stainlesssteel bracelet. Secondly, the Premier Chronograph 42 features a Breitling Caliber 13 chronometer movement and is available with either a blue or a black dial featuring a white tachymeter ring with a black scale. This stunning Premier model offers the choice of either an alligator leather or nubuck strap or a stainless-steel bracelet.
The Breitling Premier Automatic 40 is a study in understated style. Perhaps more than any other watch in the new collection, it evokes Breitling’s elegant watches from the 1940s. Inside its stainless-steel case is the Breitling Caliber 37, a self-winding mechanical chronometer movement. It is available with an anthracite, blue, or silver dial. Each dial option is available with either a nubuck or alligator leather strap or a stainless-steel bracelet.
The Breitling Premier Automatic Day & Date 40 displays not only the time but also the day of the week and the date. Powering this automatic wristwatch is the Breitling Caliber 45 self-winding chronometer movement. It is available with either a black or a silver dial and features either a stainless-steel bracelet or a nubuck or alligator leather strap.
