Breitling’s Premier B01 already comes in many variations — and now it comes in another, exclusive to the Watches of Switzerland Group.

The Breitling Special Edition Premier B01 Chronograph 42 for WOS features the same 42 mm x 13.65 mm stainless steel case as before, with retro styling, stepped case flanks, applied indices, bi-compax counters, symmetrical date, and the ubiquitous caliber B01 chronograph movement.

Following the already gorgeous color schemes such as the reverse Panda style dial of the Norton Edition, the versions which were offered at launch including a true Panda dial, the Bentley Mulliner Edition, the standard reverse Panda, or the Bentley Green model — is a new scheme just for Watches of Switzerland.

Even with all the well-executed options so far, now there’s yet one more tasteful choice: dark blue contrasted against silvery-white. The look is similar to a true Panda (black on white), and even more similar to the above mentioned Bentley Mulliner Edition. The dial is silvery-white with both dark blue counters and a dark blue flange.

The price is not any higher than the regular Premier B01 42 Chronographs, either. The Watches of Switzerland Group logo is laser-inscribed onto the sapphire portion of the screwed caseback. A slightly domed sapphire crystal protects the dial. A non-screw lock crown and pill chronograph pushers control the watch. Water-resistance is 100 meters. Comes paired with a matching dark blue alligator leather strap and folding deployant clasp.

Pre-orders online are available from November 9th, 2020, exclusively at Goldsmiths, Mappin & Webb, Watches of Switzerland, and Mayors (US) websites. Limited to 100 pieces in the UK and 50 pieces in the US. (Ref. AB01186A1G1P1)

Retail is $8,400.
