Official description

Breitling unveils a trio of ultra-premium chronographs, featuring solid precious metals and an exceptional tourbillon. Each of the three watch variations is inspired by one of the Breitling founders.

Conceived while the world was still in the grip of the Second World War, the Premier collection was Willy Breitling’s antidote to austerity. It was a time when wristwatches were professional tools used by pilots, navigators and engineers. And no one understood that better than Willy, whose business was renowned for its high-precision chronographs.

But as a man of great personal style, Willy also sought to elevate the wristwatch to a thing of elegance that, like the glamorous black-and-white films of the day, conveyed optimism in spite of the turbulent times. His Premier line, launched in 1943, maintained all the function of his superb chronographs but enriched them with form.
