Breitling Introduces New Premier Collection, Dedicated To Its Land Series


The new Premier collection by Breitling, following the preceding collection of the same name around 75 years ago, marks the brands legacy of timeless elegance, style, and practicality, considering the brand’s staple of military and aviator watches since the late 1930s and 1940s.

The original collection of Breitling watches had either a 36mm or 38mm case, and were often crafted gold with leather straps. In that collection, the watches were the first to feature the product name on the dial, that demonstrates the importance of personal identification.

The current collection introduces five distinct models dedicated to Breitling’s land collection, which includes chronographs and day-date models. For each dedicated timepiece, there’s a selection of either an alligator leather strap, nubuck strap, or a stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp.

PREMIER B01 CHRONOGRAPH 42

The flagship watch of the collection, the chronograph comes in either a silver or navy dial. The self-winding Breitling Calibre 01 has a power reserve of up to 70 hours. It is a COSC-certified chronometer with a minute counter and second subdial at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock respectively, as well as a white tachymeter scale on a black inner bezel around the dial.

PREMIER B01 CHRONOGRAPH 42 BENTLEY BRITISH RACING GREEN

In conjunction with the launch of the Premier collection, Breitling is thrilled to announce that it has renewed its partnership with Bentley. The two great brands have worked together since 2003, when Breitling became the first watch­maker entrusted to design an onboard clock for Bentley’s flagship model, the Continental GT.

The exclusive Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green timepiece, in collaboration with Bentley Motors, was inspired by the dashboard of the historically supercharged 1929 ‘Blower’ Bentley. It features the Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01 mechanical movement with a power reserve of 70 hours, and the chronograph has the choice of a matching leather strap for a monochromatic style with the contrasting grey subdials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock.
