The new Breitling Premier collection takes not only its name but also design inspiration from the 1940s Premier watches.
Those watches offered a form of escape through a certain elegance that people were craving.
The original Premier family is known for its elegance, while the new collection makes a strong style statement.
Moreover, it is specifically about the “land” environment.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern is clear about the role the Premier watches play in the brand’s product portfolio.
This is the first modern Breitling collection dedicated to everyday elegance. With outstanding quality and performance, these watches bear our unmistakable brand DNA. The focus is on a style that beautifully complements their purpose.”

The brand introduces five distinct models.
The collection includes chronographs, day and date models, and understated three-hand watches. Their elegance is worthy of the historic brand name, and the quality and performance are pure Breitling.
Let's take a quick look at the new model released.
