Breitling releases watch for Bentley birthday

Words by Rob Chilton

Breitling and Bentley continue their bromance with the release of a stunning new chronograph

If you’re going to make a watch inspired by the component of a car, then the dashboard of Bentley’s famous 1929 Blower car is near-perfect source material. Breitling says happy 100th birthday to its car-making best friend Bentley with a beautiful and sophisticated chronograph.

The brown elm dial adds vintage atmosphere

The Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition watch has a pleasingly vintage-looking brown elm burl dial with a white tachymetre and two black sub-dials displaying a minute counter at 3 o’clock and seconds at 9 o’clock. The caseback features the Bentley logo, but the highlight is a plate on the left of the case engraved with ‘Bentley.’

The strap mimics the stitching found in Bentley interiors

Two versions of the 42mm watch have been produced, one in 18 carat red gold (200 pieces) that comes with a brown leather strap featuring stitching that mimics the type found on Bentley car seats, while the stainless-steel version is limited to 1,000 pieces.

The case bears the Bentley name

Breitling CEO Georges Kern said the watch celebrates Bentley’s “history, luxury and incredible racing pedigree.” Long may this relationship continue.
