The last of the Breitling Heritage Premier Collection that we haven’t talked about yet is the Premier Datora 42, another precious revival of the late 1940s, then produced in stainless steel and gold.
The new Datora shares the same beauty and charm as the rest of the Heritage Premier Collection and is the most complex of the three which explains the busy dial and its robust measures.
But let’s dive into them, they come with the same two variants of the other two releases in the collection, one in stainless steel and the other in 18k red gold, salmon dial in steel variant and silver dial in a gold variant. On the dial, applied Arabic hour markers, Breitling logo and syringe hands all in silver (in steel variant) or gold (in 18k red gold variant), central blue second hand as minute, second and date hands subdials. On the busy dial, a 30 m counter at 3 o’clock, a small second at 9 o’clock, a date counter at 6 o’clock with the moon phase opening and finally a day and month window at 12 o’clock.
The case is 42 mm in diameter and 15.35 mm thick, crown at 3 o’clock flanked by two flat chronograph pushers and a day corrector at 10 o’clock, sapphire crystal on both sides and 100 m of water resistance.
Inside and unlike the other two launches it operates an automatic movement, the Caliber B25 (base 2000-RAC) which is Chronometer Certified and offers up to 48 hours of power reserve.
The watch comes with a brown alligator strap with a folding clasp and is available at the brand’s boutiques for the price of € 11,350 in steel and € 22,200 in gold.
