Premier B01 Chronograph 42


The story

Designed by Willy Breitling in the 1940s, the Premier was the brand’s first-ever watch dedicated to style. Featuring elegant details and modern-retro touches, this reinterpretation of the Premier falls no short of its ancestor’s reputation: it is “a watch of impeccable taste”. Featuring rectangular chronograph pushers, as well as a bi-compax chronograph panda look, the Premier displays a variety of elegant design details such as the grooves on the case-side or the open sapphire caseback. Available in a variety of materials including stainless steel or 18 k red gold, the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 features a range of bi-compax black, anthracite, silver or blue dials. Offered either with a matching bracelet, or a choice of alligator or nubuck calfskin leather strap fitting both a pin or folding buckle, this Premier is powered by the in-house Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, a COSC-certified chronometer.
