The brand and its new CEO have been moving fast to modify and redefine what customers can expect from them, while retaining the core “air, land, sea” motto that has pushed them forward so far. Let’s continue exploring the latest additions to the “Premier” series with “Automatic 40” and “Automatic Day & Date 40”.
In the last blog update, we started reviewing the new “Premier” series with “Chronograph 42” and “B01 Chronograph 42”, you can learn more here. Unlike previous Breitling releases, the latter caters primarily to aviation and more specialized topics. The dials of these new products are clearer and more functional. Even though these cases are slightly smaller, especially the “Automatic 40” and “Automatic Day & Date 40” models, their target audience may be young audiences who bought their first mechanical timepieces on the market.
First of all, we can focus on the new “Premier Automatic Day & Date 40”, which uses a 40 mm stainless steel case with a transparent screw-in case back, allowing you to see the internal structure of the mechanical movement. Compared with the 42mm of other new Premier models, its case size is smaller, but it also uses the delicate process of brushing and polishing alternate processing. It is topped with a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating and a mosaic crown with two washers. This Replica Watches swiss is water resistant up to 100 meters (330 feet).
The time is displayed on a silver or black dial with hour markers in 18k gold decals, with additional markers on the hour markers at 3 and 9 o’clock. On the dial flange, we can see a white ring with a 60-minute scale. The circle is marked with a small black minute scale on the circumference. It is incremented by a two-digit number every 5 minutes, except for the “60” number, except for the red font.
The upper part of the dial has a wide sun window, while the lower part is aligned with the 6 o’clock position, and a standard-size date hole can be seen. Below the sun window is the printed Breitling logo, and the cursive “B” logo in 18k gold.
The central hand is also made of 18k rose gold, matching the “B” logo and hour markers. These central hands are also equipped with a luminescent coating for enhanced readability.
