Personally, I think the Premier Automatic 40 is absolutely stunning to look at.

Hey, Serge!

The reason you like the Premier line so much is because it reminds you of my Bentley Mark VI. Image

I would but there are too many style similarities to my blackbird avenger. I’m trying to keep things completely different whereas in the past I’ve owned four navitimers at the same time lol


If I recall, didn’t you have all variations of the Navi 01 limited editions?


I don’t know if I had them all but I did have the B01 Limited and the Blue Limited and the White lol I’ve had too many to even remember. The original B01 limited isn’t in this photo.

The black one in that photo isn’t the limited edition, but i had that one too. The black LE has a white date window and silver wings.

Yes. Too long. I still have the same collection. I have not made any changes in years. The Mark VI has many of the same elements as the Premier line. Breitling B, rectangular pushers, bi-compax layout, 42mm size, a protruding domed cyrstal, etc.

That's right, I was looking on my phone and didn't realize it wasn't the LE version.

There’s the money shot on the corn cob!!!!! You are right that the Premier has some styling similarities to your Mark VI. I swear I thought you had sold that or were considering selling it a few years ago.

I had the Cal.13 Version of the new Premier in my hands already and will see the rest of the range on 7.11. It is a clean, professional watch, that will easily replace the Transocean line (Specially the Chronograph, which is not selling good anyway in the last year). As with the Navitimer 8, the focus for this model is not the classical Breitling customer, but it is a good attempt to get former IWC, Jaeger or even Omega customers to buy a Breitling. But it will be very hard advertising work to get those to look at the brand.
p.s. The Mark VI was the nicest Bentley by far, it's retail price was just so ridiculosly unnecessary influenced by the platinum bezel. The 18kt Version almost sold better than the steel/platinum one!

I saw the premiere in the metal in a store window recently. It’s stunning.
