Premier 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 ancestors reputation: it is “a watch of impeccable taste”. The Premier displays a variety of elegant design details such as the grooves on the case-side or the rectangular chronograph pushers. Available in stainless steel, the Premier Chronograph 42 features a black or blue dial. 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 Breitling Caliber 13, a COSC-certified chronometer.
