We go together like…. Rolex and Daytona, Audemars Piguet and Royal Oak, Breitling and Navitimer. Not quite the lyrics, but proof that certain watches have developed an aura so great, they overshadow other, no less worthy models. Fortunately the more astute collectors take a broader view and, where cheap Breitling replica watches is concerned, will oftentimes prefer the Premier.
The Premier, it has to be said, hasn’t had the attention it deserves. Firstly because Breitling, which has been making 2023 1:1 Breitling fake watches uninterrupted since 1884, is at the head of an abundant catalogue. So abundant it is impossible to know every detail, however pertinent. Secondly because the Navitimer remains the star of the show and the top UK replica Breitling watches par excellence. Imagine the brand’s original positioning of pilot watches and instruments for professionals as a Venn diagram and the overlap is the Navitimer.
Since 2017 Georges Kern has been working hard to restore best Breitling copy watches’ history in its entirety (not just aviation) and retrain the spotlight on the models that forged its reputation (not just the Navitimer). Accordingly, the AVI, Top Time and Premier have swelled the ranks of longstanding favourites such as the Navitimer, Superocean and Chronomat.
There are several reasons why the luxury replica Breitling Premier watches is back. Firstly and pragmatically, it turns 80 this year. Secondly, the collection put its mark on the 1940s and beyond, ushering in the transition from a tool watch worn by pilots and racing drivers to an elegant dress watch. Henceforth, the chronograph was a complication to wear around town, not just on the racing circuit.
Thirdly because Georges Kern, always with an ear to the market and supported by the encyclopaedic knowledge of Swiss movements Breitling super clone watches’ historian (and seasoned collector) Fred Mandelbaum, twigged that collectors had huge affinities with the historic Premier. And there is no better way to fuel enthusiasm for vintage models… than to make new ones!
When the Premier returned to the spotlight in 2018, it did so with nothing less than the legendary B01, AAA Breitling replica watches’ first in-house movement. It reprised several 1940s hallmarks (the bicompax layout, double flange, dial font and logo) but kept it modern with a sapphire back and an enlarged 42mm diameter (the largest period models didn’t exceed 38mm).
There were five reissues: a bottle green dial with grey subdials, blue with black subdials, panda, reverse panda and light grey. Breitling fake watches for sale is now completing the line-up with five new releases in steel and one in gold, all of which can switch to a bracelet in the corresponding metal. They are all monochrome (same colour dial and subdials), run off the B01 movement and measure 42mm in diameter.
For the steel models, collectors can choose between a vintage cream or salmon dial, a racing dial (a gorgeous all-black model) or a bolder navy blue or sparkling green dial. The gold model comes with a cream dial only and features gold-coloured indexes and hands… as do, curiously, the steel models. The decision to pair gold hands and indexes with a steel case is surprising, but works well.
Each of these new high quality replica Breitling Premier watches delivers 70 hours of power reserve, is fitted with a sapphire back and is guaranteed water-resistant to 100 metres. They all join the regular collection.
