Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42

Last year Breitling, led by CEO Georges Kern, released a number of new watches and series in its effort to refocus and hone the image of the brand. Among them were the Navitimer 8 collection, a refreshed Navitimer 1 collection, a new chronograph design within the Superocean Heritage series, and a revived Premier collection. Together, these changes are meant to help the brand better walk the line between its two primary consumers: those attracted to the masculine and technology-driven aspects of Breitling watches, and those with a more collector-minded interest in the distinctive, rich history of Breitling and its vintage designs.

Today, we?ll be focusing on what may have been the most important of all the brand?s 2018 releases, the Premier B01 Chronograph 42. The piece has been described as ?modern retro,? featuring more subtle proportions compared to the bulkier designs of many of the brand’s current offerings, and referencing, with its two-register “panda” dial, the classic configurations of Breitling?s past. The watch is strategically placed within the new Premier collection, which shares the same name as a collection founded in 1943 by Breitling. ?The Premier collection will serve as the stage for much of Breitling?s vintage-look designs going forward,? Kern said in WatchTime’s report report on the collection’s launch, instead of as a pure revival of that 1940s-era collection.

The watch itself uses a 42-mm steel case with engraved fluting on its sides, integrated chronograph pushers, and a prominent signed crown tight to the body. On the face of the watch is an outlining curbed black tachymetric scale, featuring a small addition of color in the red ?tachymeter? script toward the top of the dial. Within the outer ring is the white dial, with applied indices for each hour, a 6 o?clock date window, and an applied corporate logo towards the 12 o?clock position. On either side of the dial are the two black subdials for running seconds and a 30-minute counter; while sweeping over these are the two simple swords hands for the hour and minutes, and red-tipped pointer for the chronograph seconds. The B01 Chrongraph 42 is also available in two more color options: first in a blue and black colorway (above), and also in a special green-and-black ?Bentley? edition meant to celebrate Breitling?s partnership with the luxury automotive brand (below).
Powering the watch is Breitling?s in-house Caliber 01, an automatic movement capable of a 70-hour power reserve and hosting an impressive 47 jewels in its construction. The movement, visible through the watch?s sapphire caseback, also includes a jumping minutes mechanism, which means the minute hand only moves in single motions at the end of each 60-second period. The feature is uncommon among watches in general, but especially rare in chronographs. Upon its release, Breitling priced the watch at $8,400, though depending on the dealer you may be able to find it for a bit less.
