Earlier this summer, Breitling announced the launch of the Breitling Premier B01 Wheels and Waves Limited Edition watch. This stunning design of only 500 pieces is released in collaboration with the Swiss watch manufacturer’s new three-year partnership with Wheels and Waves, a world leading motorcycle, surfing and skateboarding festival. The limited edition does a remarkable job of highlighting the spirit of the festival while also authentically embodying Breitling’s love for their passions of land and sea.
We are certain that this Breitling Premier B01 Wheels and Waves watch is going to be a huge hit for both limited edition watch collectors and fans of the Breitling Premier range. This specific collection was only recently unveiled towards the end of last year, becoming a revival of an old collection first released in the 1940’s, a collection that epitomised the brand’s new desire to reintroduce elegant and stylish dress watches back into their identity. The new Breitling Wheels and Waves watch continues to epitomise this everyday elegance alongside the cool and trendy aesthetics of the festival.
As the new Official Timekeeper of the Wheels and Waves festival from 2019 to 2021, we knew it wouldn’t be long before Breitling released a collaborative piece inspired by the event. The Breitling Premier B01 Wheels And Waves Limited Edition was released on June 13 and features an engraved plate with a Breitling SPECIAL inscription. The engraving is found on the left hand side of the 42mm polished stainless steel case which comes fitted with cambered sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment, a non screw locked crown and a smooth fixed bezel.
Through the sapphire crystal glass case back of the Breitling Premier B01 Wheels And Waves watch, you can witness the beauty of one of Breitling in-house manufacture movements. The incredible Breitling 01 self-winding mechanical calibre is a highly celebrated movement that is chronometer certified to be accurate to -4 to +6 seconds a day. The calibre also comes equipped with a power reserve of 70 hours, 41 jewels and a vibration frequency of 28,800 vph. The case back is also engraved with “ONE OF 500” to mark its status as a limited edition.
The automatic movement equips the stunning anthracite coloured dial with breathtaking golden hour and minute hands and a red central hands alongside beautifully contrasting black chronograph sub-dials for continuous seconds and 30 minutes. The rose gold hands come presented with Superluminova coating with easy legibility in low lighting. The dial also features a black tachymeter scale on a white inner bezel with a red tachymeter subscription and the famous Breitling ‘B’ logo at 12 o clock crafted from rose gold.
The Breitling Premier B01 Wheels And Waves Limited Edition watch is presented on a sophisticated and luxurious brown nubuck leather strap with either a folding buckle or a classic pin buckle. The retail price of the timepiece depends on the buckle that you choose with the folding buckle variation retailing at £6,700 and the pin buckle at £6,530.
