1946 Breitling Premier Chronograph | Waterproof | Ref.790 | 35mm

Enquire about this product


Named after the French word for "first",  the Premier collection debuted in 1943, marking the pinnacle of watchmaking elegance. Despite this, it retains the versatility and sportiness characteristic of all Breitling timepieces, such as the iconic Navitimer and the stylish SuperOcean introduced a decade later. 

The Premier chronographs epitomize Breitling's vision of style and elegance, extending its renown beyond aviation.



This timepiece is in nearly mint condition, with an unpolished case that remains remarkably sharp, retaining its original lines. The silver vertical brushed dial is nearly flawless, with only a few minor signs of aging and a tiny hairline mark in the left-seconds circle.
The radium fill is all complete in hands and numbers.

The watch has just been fully serviced and keeps a great time.
