To coincide with their new Continental GT V8 launch, here is the first glimpse of of Breitling new limited edition watch which wasn’t meant to make its public debut until the Geneva International Salon d’Auto on March 5. Anyway, I’m sorry but we just couldn’t wait that long and simply had to break the news the moment we got it. Breitling has also only created a 250-piece limited edition of its Bentley GMT chronograph, featuring a second time-zone display. Its most distinctive feature is a metallic red inner bezel bearing the names of 24 global locations. The original and daring design of the steel case characterised by asymmetrical lugs is teamed with a bracelet or a rubber strap reserved exclusively for this model.
This tribute to the new Continental GT V8 marks a further strengthening of the common ground between Bentley and Breitling. The two renowned global manufacturers share the same passion for fine mechanisms, the same alliance of prestige and performance, the same heritage of excellence aligned with the same thrust towards the future, symbolised by a winged B signature.
Dedicated to the world of the automobile, the Breitling for Bentley line marries the best of two worlds. Elegance and performance. Class and expertise. British chic and Swiss tradition. All the instruments are endowed with exclusive technical features and movements that are chronometer-certified by the COSC, the official Swiss watch certification body.
To strengthen the ties with Bentley, designers have drawn inspiration from the characteristic features of the superlative British carmaker, including the knurled finish of the control buttons and the typography of the dashboard instruments. Embodying the perfect blend of technique and aesthetics, the Breitling for Bentley line is designed to appeal to connoisseurs – and to all those with a love of rare and exclusive watches.
