Below is a detailed rundown of the collection’s most popular models, along with their prices and specifications. 

Prices for the Breitling Premier Automatic Watches

The Breitling Premier Automatic watches from the exquisite Breitling Premier family exude masculinity and timeless aesthetics, which are visible in their dials and structures. Bound to add a sophisticated flair to any of your ensembles, these Breitling watches for men are all crafted with thorough attention to detail. The prices typically range from $4,650 USD to $4,950 USD for the stainless steel versions. There is however, a premium iteration made of 18K red gold that costs a whopping $16,000 USD. 

An eye-catching member of this sub-collection is the Breitling Premier Automatic 40 Ref. A37340351B1X1, which carries a pleasing brown and silver color scheme. This timekeeper for men comes in a 40mm stainless steel case, with slim lugs and a comfortable brown alligator leather strap. Complementing its straightforward look, the watch’s anthracite-colored dial has an exceptional sunray finish that perfectly contrasts its white-toned outer rim dedicated to tracking minutes.  This Breitling automatic watch runs on the COSC-certified Caliber Breitling 37 movement that boasts a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. This mechanism comes with 17 jewels and has an average power reserve of 38 hours. Priced at $4,650 USD, this Breitling watch is one of the cheapest members of the entire collection.

For a more upgraded option, why not go for the Breitling Premier Automatic Day & Date 40 Ref. A45340211G1A1? For only $4,950 USD, you will be able to anchor your collection with this dashing piece worthy of much praise and attention. Like its name suggests, this timepiece has a legible day of the week window at the 12 o’clock position and a date display just above the 6 o’clock marker. Like the rest of the Breitling Premier collection, this watch also features a fixed silver-tone narrow bezel with layers that emphasize the large dial. However, unlike previous iterations of the Breitling Premier, this model is a bit fancier with its rose gold-colored hands and indices. The layout of the “Breitling” signature is also more spaced out, giving it a cleaner look. Considered the epitome of class, this luxurious stainless steel watch runs on the Breitling 45 in-house movement.

Prices for the Breitling Premier Chronograph Watches

Representing the Swiss luxury brand’s passion for innovation, the Breitling Premier Chronograph series breaks boundaries with its astounding performance and high-frequency precision. While taking inspiration from the legendary Premier pieces from the 1940s, the brand also incorporates more impressive, modern features into this updated line. The chronographs come in diverse styles, from snazzy bi-compaxes to complex layouts featuring moon phase displays. What most Premier Chronograph models share, however, are the detailed grooves on the sides of the cases, which are accompanied by compact rectangular pushers. 

One standout model, the Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Ref. AB0118371B1P1 gives off a uniquely classic touch with its reverse panda bi-compax black dial. Thanks to its chronometer-certified Caliber Breitling B01 automatic movement, which can be seen through a transparent sapphire crystal case back, this reverse panda watch features a small-seconds recorder and a minute totalizer. Equipped with a small date display at 6 o'clock and a black crocodile leather strap with white stitchings, this 42mm stainless steel timepiece costs around $6,339 USD.

Extremely unique in every way, the Breitling Premier B09 Chronograph 40 Ref. AB0930D31L1P1 draws attention with its pistachio green-colored dial and vintage hour and minute hands that circle around Arabic numeral indices. The sleek, silver Arabic numerals on the dial and the padded gold brown alligator leather strap also give this timepiece an added graceful touch. With its 70-hour power reserve and 28-jewel hand-wound B09 movement, you can only expect the best from this $8,400 USD classic Breitling Premier watch. 

Another mesmerizing watch from the series is the Breitling Premier Chronograph 42 Ref. A13315351B1A1, which is brimming with unmistakable finesse while costing a budget-friendly $6,600 USD. At 42mm, this 100-meter water resistant Breitling watch has a silver-toned metal bracelet that matches its stainless steel case. The three subdials placed at the 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions show the 12-hour, 60-second, and 30-minute indicators respectively. Running on the Breitling Caliber 13, a COSC-certified chronometer, this chronograph watch promises precision and high accuracy for all of its complications.

History Behind the Breitling Premier Collection

The history behind the Breitling Premier watches stretches all the way back to 1943. Back then, the former president of the company, Willy Breitling, sought to release a new series that stood apart from the usual battle-ready tool watches supplied to members of the military and aviation industries. 

Characterized by sophistication and versatility, the first 1940s Premier timepieces came in gold or stainless steel cases, with sizes ranging from 32mm to 38mm. Designed just for the affluent men in society, these pieces also featured indices with luminous elements as well as subdials that resonated with the color of the backdrops. The company focused on the style and needs of a confident gentleman, and incorporated classic Swiss craftsmanship into their vintage Breitling Premier watches. 

More than seven decades later, Breitling released modern and reimagined iterations of these iconic Premier watches in an attempt to reintroduce its wonders to the current market. These modern-retro pieces are specifically made to highlight the style and character of modern-day men while still remaining true to their 1940s roots.  

These Breitling watches for men carry the Breitling logo on its faces, reminding wearers of the brand’s unparalleled watchmaking methods. All of them also have colorful dials ranging from black, green, white, blue, and many more. The case materials used are classic, either stainless steel or 18K gold, with case sizes sitting from 40mm to 42mm. These are then paired with either stainless steel or leather straps. Offering great durability, the Premier timepieces are also protected by sturdy sapphire crystals. Other than their appearances, the Breitling Premier watches come with an average water resistance of 100 meters and they all run on powerful in-house movements. Ensuring that these watches are as functional as any other products offered by the brand, Breitling also included options with chronograph functions, day and date windows, moon phase displays, and even tourbillons.
