It’s always interesting when two big names in their respective industries team up for something special. The latest in this move comes from Breitling and the iconic British motorcycle brand, Norton.
At this year’s Baselworld the pair teamed up to release the Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Norton Edition, a timepiece which celebrates the the illustrious timeline of both names. Aesthetically the watch combines elegant lines with the bold and masculine flair of what you’d expect from a motorcycle-inspired release.
Distinctive features of the watch include a 42mm stainless steel case with a ‘Norton’ logo engraved on a plate on the left side of the case, and the transparent caseback featuring a printed Norton motorcycle and logo. The dial is adorned with black and finished in golden numerals that make for a nice contrast to the brown vintage raw-leather strap that’s a nice nod to riders.
COSC-chronometer certification is also a nice touch to those looking for a precision timepiece.
