The Breitling Premier Replica debuted 80 years ago as the flagship line for the brand. A fascinating variety of models were produced over several decades. In 2018, the Premier line returned with top-of-the-line models, and Breitling continues to introduce beautiful new variants each year.
The Breitling Premier from the beginning until the early ’70s
From 1943 until the early 1970s, Breitling produced the Premier in an astounding number of variations. The case diameters ranged from below 30mm to 38.5mm. Case materials spanned chrome, to stainless steel, and even included 18K gold. The AAA Breitling Replica watches typically came in either two- or three-register formats, and the majority housed Venus hand-winding movements like the 178 and 175, although some early models used Valjoux calibers.
The golden era also meant formal watches with style
Breitling also created Premiers in non-waterproof cases. These are easy to identify due to their rectangular pushers. Gold models were rare when produced, and today, there are few survivors in fabulous condition. A Breitling watch first copy such as the gold 36mm 782 above contains a unique “knee-lug” case and a dial that would look at home in watches from some of the most luxurious brands.
Even some of the smallest Breitling Premier models are amazingly detailed and worth a second look. The 32.6mm reference 789 above has perfect balance and manages to add a tachymeter ring while coming off as a dressier example. A no-lume dial and printed numerals help tie together the overall look.
If someone were describing the steel Breitling watches for sale above, I’d probably skip right over it due to the sheer mention of Roman numerals.View the clarity of this design, and it’s not some stodgy dress chronograph. This watch has style! Plus, even if it is a more sparse affair, it’s versatile and can work in all situations.
The 40mm manual-wind Breitling Premier is an absolute gem
The Breitling Premier collection grew by getting smaller! That’s right, a 40mm edition was introduced in gold and stainless steel with a variety of dial colors. The key difference from the 42mm automatic Breitling Replica Store was the use of the in-house B09 hand-wound movement with chronometer certification.This line was and continues to be a unicorn within the current luxury watch space, and I’m impressed that Breitling took the chance to produce these fantastic watches.
The latest releases
The new watches now feature single-color dials that lend them an air of formality and elegance. Also, note the change to applied Arabic numerals when compared to the 42mm Breitling Replica Buy Now that relaunched the Premier line in 2018. All continue to be powered by the B01 chronometer-certified movement, which includes a quick-set date.
The stainless steel model offers five dial variations in salmon, blue, green, black, and cream. All are available on either an alligator strap with a folding buckle or the brand’s trademark seven-row bracelet. A stunning 18K red gold Newest Top Quality Breitling Replica is also available on either a strap or bracelet and is paired with a cream dial. No matter which model is chosen, all are water resistant to a very useful 100 meters.
