Breitling has recently been on a tear, hitting home run after home run with watch releases that excite and innovate while calling back to the brand’s long history and deep catalog. So it is no surprise that the latest wave of releases saw the arrival of another winner – the Premier B09 Chronograph.
Measuring in at 40mm, the B09’s most immediately noticeable feature is the pistachio-green dial. With the watch world veering toward green dialed pieces, it has been interesting to see the myriad interpretations ranging from subtle to very bold. Breitling’s “Pistachio” falls somewhere closer to the former with a hue that is definitely noticeable and modern yet somehow connects to Breitling’s history of classic timepieces. An inner tachymeter circles a vintage-inspired dial layout. From the composition to the style of the high-polish applied silver numerals, this is a watch that pays tribute to the Breitlings that came before. Turn it over and see the certified chronometer movement via the sapphire caseback. And on the brown alligator leather strap with a striking yellow pad on the inside, the Breitling Premiere AB0930D31L1P1 is an eminently wearable watch worthy of an in-person look.
