Swiss watchmakers, Breitling, have been responsible for some of the coolest looking timepiece collaborations we’ve encountered here at Coolector HQ and they’ve just hit another home run with their latest release. The Breitling Premier Norton Edition Watch is a striking representation of a partnership between two iconic brands which share very similar timelines and powerful legacies. This timepiece expresses the style and performance that you’d expect from a maker of elegant and refined Swiss watches and a motorcycle workshop known the world over for its exclusive British engineering.
The Breitling Premier Norton Edition Watch is a stunning collaboration which really does reflect the finest elements of both these iconic brands. This fantastic timepiece aims to celebrates the partnership between the prestige watch brand Breitling and British motorcycle company Norton, known worldwide for its high-performance motorcycles. It is part of Breitling’s Premier collection, a family of sophisticated timepieces defined by their unparalleled flair and performance.
Swiss Precision and Style
The new Norton Edition watch from Breitling is a distinctive interpretation of the Premier which makes a bold, urban style statement. A Norton motorcycle is a similar sign of its owner’s personal flair and it’s clear that Breitling has striking parallels with Norton Motorcycles in so much as both Breitling and Norton are innovative and entrepreneurial and have powerful legacies and a loyal fan base. This new timepiece strives to honour the great partnership between these two aspirational brands and we’re big fans of its aesthetic here at Coolector HQ.
A spectacular addition to the Swiss watchmaker’s line up of collaborations, the Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Norton Edition reflects the cultures and values of these two world famous brands. It has a 42-millimeter stainless-steel case, water-resistance to 10 bar (100 meters) and a distinctive “Norton” logo can be found engraved on a plate on the left side of the case, and the transparent case-back boasted a printed Norton motorcycle and logo.
It boasts an elegant black dial with golden numerals and hour and minute hands that deliver an intriguing contrast to the brown vintage raw-leather strap that will appeal both to watch aficionados and serious motorcyclist enthusiasts. The model is also available with a stylish stainless-steel bracelet. The silver subdials – a chronograph minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock – agains the black dial Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 at the heart of this watch, which delivers an impressive power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
The COSC-certified chronometer on the Breitling Premier Norton Edition Watch is a black tachymeter scale on a white inner bezel around the dial, with “TACHYMETER” inscribed in red. The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, which makes them highly legible on any route a biker might choose, from a city street to a remote back road.
The Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Norton Edition is just the start of an ongoing partnership between two extraordinary brands and some new surprises will be announced throughout the year and we can’t wait to see what else these two awesome brands come up with over the next 12 months and beyond.
