Breitling Premier Watch Releases
Wednesday - 24 October 2018
Yesterday, London and the Jura team witnessed the official launch of Breitling’s Premier collection. The new line up revisits a name that holds an important place in Breitling’s history. During the forties, the prestige watch brand debuted a collection of timepieces that brought elegance and flair to the wrist. The fashionable designs made a powerful statement bringing an escape from the global conflict and economic uncertainty. Already known worldwide for their aviation and military instruments, Willy Breitling dared to bring a touch of glamour and luxury that reflected his personal style and a feel of normalcy in a world at war. The original Premier collection played an important role and were the first to feature the product name on the dial. Continuing their legacy and taking inspiration from the 1940 designs, the new Premier collection is stylish, sophisticated and timeless.
The five new models are certainly worthy of their Breitling title with exceptional craftsmanship and outstanding performance. Dedicated to everyday elegance, the designs are made for use on land with their stylish aesthetic and urban flair. Proud of their heritage, the new Premier collection honours the 1940s originals with five designs that will stand the test of time and never go out of style in true Breitling fashion.
As the flagship watch of the new collection, the Premier B01 chronograph leads with elegance and charm. Available with a dark blue or a silver dial, the neat arrangement features contrasting black sub dials and is framed in a robust 42mm stainless steel case. A transparent caseback showcases the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, which is developed in-house and recognised as one of the finest mechanical watch movements in the world.
