Was browsing Breitling's website today and came across a new dial being offered on the Premier chrono.

I like that A LOT! It’s my new favourite Premier by some margin actually.

I just had a look online myself and it’s an absolute stunner on black croco. You really can’t go wrong with a reverse panda.

I like it, seeing it now I'm suprised it wasn't one of the first dials released. Black dial seems like it would have been a standard. I think the anthracite is still my favorite. And the wood Bentley dial as well cause it's so unique.

The "Premier" has little to do with the vintage Premier -- and everything to do with the vintage Top Time ref. 2002:

So, I agree, this is a classic look.

I say again, that it's a pity that Breitling did not simply re-incarnate the Top Time in its various manifestations, including what is now the defunct Transocean Chronograph (which resurrected the Top Time ref. 810) -- in my view, still the most elegant Breitling chronograph from the post-Willy Breitling era.

Agreed! In fact, I just ordered one (not the Premier, though). :)

I’m partial to those, as well (especially the wood dial :wink: ).

There actually is a nice variety of dials in the new Premier line, with different looks and vibes. The first reverse panda of the lot was the Norton edition, which, I think, looks pretty cool.

It may be a couple of weeks yet, Justin. But, I’ll definitely post up when it gets here. :wink:

Hope all goes well.
