PREMIER 01 CHRONOGRAPH 42
IN THE SPIRIT OF THE TIMES
The wings on its logo have flown away and the brand has begun its identity change. The first models in the Premier collection are showing the way with a focus on style and a top-of-the-range mechanism.
Among the five models in the brand-new Premier collection, released by Breitling before the year’s end, the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 model and its various versions immediately attract attention. They are easy to wear with their classic look and have a whole host of assets. But judge for yourself!
On the dial, efficiency is the watchword. Two counters in bicompax position and a date counter at 6 o’clock round off the main time information. The hour and minute hands move around clear but discreet hour markers. The tip of the central second hand adds a touch of dynamic colour. The uncluttered design is encircled by a tachymetric scale, highlighting the watch’s sports feel.
Two main colours are on offer. The deep blue dial gives the watch a very refined personality. Aficionados of the “panda“ will probably opt for the silver version, featuring a black chronograph seconds sub-dial and totaliser. Steel, alligator leather and nubuck straps are available to boost your chosen style.
Inside the 42mm-wide steel case is the Calibre 01. This self-winding in-house movement combines top performance and accuracy. The chronograph is certified as a chronometer by the COSC and generates a healthy power reserve of 70 hours. Through the sapphire crystal, the rotor and a handful of components are on display.
