Breitling Introduces the All-New Premier Collection

Breitling Introduces the All-New Premier Collection

Postby Racer-X » October 22nd 2018, 9:12pm

"Historically a simpler chronograph than the better known Navitimer or Chronomat, the Breitling Premier is the latest collection to debut under the aegis of chief executive Georges Kern, who is remaking the brand from top to bottom, most notably by moving away from oversized, extremely shiny wristwatches with fussily designed dials.

Conceived as Breitling’s “elegant” watch, the modern day Premier takes its cues from the namesake original of the 1940s, which gives it a sleeker, cleaner aesthetic than the average Breitling.

While the new Premier line made up of four models – plus a new Breitling for Bentley chronograph – all share a few key features. To start with, the range is characterised by moderately sized cases – the largest is a 42mm chronograph – bevelled lugs, alternating brushed and polished surfaces on the case, as well as lengthwise fluting on the flanks of the case. Domed sapphire crystals with antireflective coating are also common to all models."

Beautiful. It's nice to see companies (Zodiac,Oris,Breitling and others) go to the archives and provide watches based on their vintage designs. It allows those who like the vintage look to avoid the pitfalls that come with watches that are 40+ years old.

Little do these look like the original Premier, more like the various Top Time models from the 1960s, or the 1970s Chrono-Matic pieces. The curved-end strap - as always - sucks cock, but that's pretty much the only flaw I can see in these watches.

Ooh, now.

Yes, they don’t shout their design language and are a little Hamilton-esque, but so were the earlier ones, and the build will count for something (if that’s still important to anyone...)

I’d have one of these over an IWC Ingenieur or a fat Omega.

Not my cup of tea but saying that, the reverse Panda caused a twitch.
