Watchmaker Breitling has announced the launch of its Premier Heritage collection consisting of three 1940’s inspired models – the Chronograph, Duograph and Datora - all available in either stainless steel or 18k red gold.

The 40mm Premier Heritage Chronograph is manually wound and is powered by the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B09, which is based on the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. It comes in two variations: with an eye-catching pistachio-green dial encased in stainless steel or a stately silver-colored dial encased in 18k red gold. 

With stainless-steel and 18k red gold cases measuring 42 mm, the Premier Heritage Duograph comes with a blue or black dial, respectively. Its rattrapante function – one of the most elaborate in watchmaking – enables the wearer to measure two elapsed times simultaneously thanks to its two superimposed chronograph hands. This piece houses the mechanical hand-wound Breitling Manufacture Caliber B15, which is based on the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B03.

Furthermore, every watch is a COSC-certified chronometer and water-resistant up to 100 meters.
