Tonight marks the beginning of a new chapter for Breitling in China, and we are incredibly excited.

 During the gala night, Breitling debuts its elegant Premier family.

The brand took the opportunity to introduce the watches in the new Premier family.

Then, Breitling expressed an essential part of the brand’s current mission statement: to create timepieces for men and women of action, purpose, and style.

In spite of the much-admired of original Premiers launched in the 1940s, the new Premier family underpin the brand’s connection to its land environment.

One of the standout pieces in the family is the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green.

It is a chronograph that honors the partnership with the great British automobile brand.
