Swiss-based luxury watchmaker Breitling has launched its new Premier collection, which was designed for daily use.
First introduced in 1943, the original Premier collection was recognized for its elegant design and first class quality as it was often crafted from gold and presented with leather straps.
The new Breitling Premier line features five models, namely Premier B01 Chronograph 42, Premier Chronograph 42, Premier Automatic 40, Premier Automatic Day & Date 40 and Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green, made from stainless-steel material.
The straps are available in several versions, including an alligator leather or nubuck strap with folding buckle or stainless-steel bracelet with folding clasp. For the Premier B01 Chronography 42 Bentley British Racing Green, the watch is also available with a leather strap with folding buckle.
Despite the material differences, the new Premier collection still includes chronographs, day-date models and understated three-hand watches with a discreet, small second subdial.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern said in a press release, “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.” (jes/wng)
