2018 Breitling Premier Automatic A37340351B1P1 is the purist’s choice for watch buyers, watch collectors, and watch enthusiasts who prefer the style and conventions of vintage watches. As a 40mm stainless steel time only special, the Breitling Premier Automatic reduces luxury watches design to the bare essentials of the 1940s and 1950s.

Each Breitling Premier Automatic is a 40mm steel timepiece available on either a leather strap or the stainless steel Breitling Navitimer bracelet seen here. When equipped with the Breitling bracelet, the Premier Automatic is secured to the wrist with a deployant clasp that features the new wingless Breitling logo and a clamshell lock.

Breitling’s case design includes mid-20th century gardens on the case bands and short lugs designed to fit well on smaller wrists. At only 11.6mm thick with a domed box section sapphire (designed to evoke vintage plexiglas), the Premier Automatic A37340351B1P1 will wear easily as either a slim sports watch or a dress watch appropriate for formal attire.

Watch collectors with a taste for classicism will enjoy the three hand dial with small seconds and an elevated minutes track in silver. The appliqué hour indices impart a premium appearance to the rich metallic grey sunburst dial base. A small seconds sub dial includes a textured metallic ring and red accented seconds hand. Super Luminova on the hour and minute hands ensures legibility after dark.

Each 2018 Breitling Premier Automatic is a no date watch powered by a Breitling caliber B37 that is based on an ETA 2824 automatic movement. The 38 hour power reserve is backed by a winding rotor that winds in both directions for smooth and silent action on the wrist. The Breitling movement operates at 28,800 vibrations per hours and is COSC certified as a Swiss chronometer. Water resistance of 100 meters makes this Breitling Premier Automatic an ideal companion for swimming or bathing.

The 2018 Breitling Premier Automatic A37340351B1P1 is encased in 40mm of stainless steel surrounding an anthracite dial on a stainless steel bracelet. Functions include hours, minutes, and sub-seconds. The watch also measures 11.6mm in thickness and 47mm from lug-to-lug.

A nice looking Breitling….go figure.

Un-Named Trucker says:

That is a Breitling I would proudly wear. I think Don Draper would approve of this beauty.

Jasper Shell says:

Wow!! The first Breitling in decades that’s actually attractive!

Antony Mort says:

Seem odd that this would be a Sellita calibre and not the ETA 2895-2 which comes as standard with the running seconds at 6 o’clock and has been used by Breitling in the past as the basis of the calibre 37. Are we sure it’s a Sellita?

Major Woody says:

The movement is ETA 2895. Wonder why you don’t mention that 🙂

Paul E says:

Lovely simplicity, but overpriced to my mind.

Stu says:

Beautiful. I will consider one when they either extend the power reserve like Tissot or Rado or they use in-house which is not too much to expect for the price.

The Gorn says:

It was looking good until you said “Sellita movement”

Nick N says:

What movement and how accurate – and + what ?

Tao Hsieh says:

Doesn’t look like breitling anymore

Chia Rhun Kwa says:

Tim, how does this compare to the Omega Seamaster Railmaster??

Bud Owens says:

I like where they are going. Love the Navitimer, but the Premier’s simplicity is engaging, especially this particular one.
