Technical information about this watch

Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42

A water resistance icon in the shape of a shield. On the shield is a drop of water and beside the water are two lines that looks like waves.

100M / 10 ATM water resistance

Water resistance indicates a watch's ability to withstand moisture and water. Ratings are measured in metres (M) or atmospheres (ATM). For instance, 30M (3 ATM) is suitable for light splashes, while 100M (10 ATM) and above are ideal for swimming and diving. Regular maintenance helps retain water resistance over time.

A watch movement icon display the inside gears of a mechanical watch.

Breitling B01 Automatic movement

Watch movements are the mechanisms that power timekeeping, coming in automatic, manual, and quartz types. Automatic movements self-wind using wrist motion, manual movements require hand-winding, and quartz movements are battery-powered for precise timekeeping. Each type offers unique benefits, catering to different preferences and lifestyles.

A watch case size icon that shows the head of the watch with an arrow on the dial giving an indication as to the diameter of the dial.

42mm case size

Case size, measured in millimetres (mm), impacts the watch's look and fit. Men's watches typically range from 38mm to 46mm, and women's from 26mm to 36mm. Larger cases make a bold statement, while smaller cases offer a classic look. Choosing the right size ensures comfort and style.

A power reserve icon that looks like a gauge that indicates how much power is left.

70 hours power reserve

Power reserve is the duration a watch runs on a full wind or charge. Mechanical watches usually offer 40 to 80 hours, with some extending to several days. Quartz watches, powered by batteries, last several years. Knowing the power reserve helps maintain accurate timekeeping.
