Breitling Replica Watches announced a number of new models and even an entirely new collection of vintage-styled watches. Well, the Breitling Premier collection is “new” for the modern Breitling brand, at least, as it resurrects a name from the 1940s. The collection includes a number of models including, naturally, many chronographs, but the new three-hand-and-date Breitling Premier Automatic 40 copy watch is the simplest of the bunch.
The Premier collection is less part of Breitling’s hyper-masculine, air or sea military-themed personality, and rather all about “vintage styling,” “elegance,” and reminding us of the brand’s history.
The Breitling Replica Premier Automatic 40 is, of course, 40mm wide in steel, 11.4mm thick, and water-resistant to 100m. There are anthracite, blue, and silver dial versions with a bracelet and various strap options. Note that the seven-link bracelet is “oblique,” lending to a retro vibe, to my eye.
The Breitling Premier Automatic 40 is the latter, with the Breitling Caliber 37 which is the brand’s renamed ETA 2895-2. This is a small-seconds version of the thin and generally well-thought-of ETA 2892 automatic movement with a power reserve of around 40 hours and a frequency of 4Hz. Like all Breitling Luxury Replica Watches movements, it is a COSC-certified chronometer with a daily average accuracy within -4 to +6 seconds per day.
A 40mm watch is not big by any standard, nor is it particularly small in the wider world of watches – but for Replica Watches Breitling, the Premier Automatic 40 might seem almost petite.
