Hockey Hall of Famer Receives Breitling for Bentley Watch

Breitling recently hosted and organized an event to honor hockey legend Brett Hull for his induction into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame.

For those of you who don’t know, Bret Hull is the general manger of the Dallas Stars, a job he started after retiring from hockey in 2005. Twice he scored 50 goals in 50 of his hockey games, he played on two Stanley Cup teams, he is the career leader in playoff powerplay goals, and he is 3rd in all time career goals with 741. As a result of his accomplishments Breitling gifted Hull with a Breitling for Bentley 6.75 chronograph.

The Breitling for Bentley 6.75 is a tribute to Bentley largest engine from an exclusive collection of Arnage limousines. The Breitling watch is hand assembly by Breitling and received the coveted COSC chronometer certification.

Breitling Cockpit Lady Watch

Branded as Breitling’s “feminine version of time” the Breitling Cockpit Lady Watch holds technical specifications that allow it to play with the big boys.  We’ve talked about this Breitling watch at the Breitling Watch Blog before, but we haven’t really gone deep into the watch’s technical background.

When Breitling designed the Breitling Cockpit Lady watch for the Breitling Windrider Collection, balance was a large aspect of the planning.  Breitling wanted a women’s watch that was able to perform yet look elegant and remain reliable.  Even though they made it look easy, sometimes designing a women’s watch with all the techs of a bulky man’s watch is not easy. Every aspect of the Breitling watch screams femininity, sleekness, and variety by using dial colors, straps, bracelets, and materials.

Breitling Cockpit Lady Watch Technical Specifications
The Breitling Cockpit Lady Watch includes a Breitling 71 caliber, SuperQuartz movement, EOL indicator, and a thermo-compensated quartz electronic movement.  The calendar of the Breitling watch is a dial aperture and the case of the Breitling Cockpit Lady includes a variety of materials including steel, two-tone, steel & gold, or 18k rose gold.  The Breitling cockpit Lady Watch includes 100 m of water resistance paired with an un-directional yet ratcheted bezel and a non screw-locked crown with three gaskets.  Measuring at a petite 31.80 mm in diameter, the Breitling Lady Cockpit has a screwed in back and cambered glareproofed sapphire crystal on both sides.

As with the variety of cases, the straps and bracelets come in a variety of colors as well.  First is the Breitling Pilot Bracelet, which similar to the cases, come in steel, two-tone, or 18k rose gold.  If a strap is chosen, the wearer has the choice of pairing the Breitling Cockpit Lady watch with either a leather strap in blue, black, gold or brown; a crocodile strap in either black or gold; a lizard strap in either yellow, brown, green, red, blue, black, orange, pink or navy blue; or a Diver Pro strap in either blue or black.

For example, the woman’s diamond watch above is a Breitling Lady Cockpit Watch with a steel case and a bezel studded with diamonds.  A mother of pear dial set with eight diamonds at the 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11 o’clock markers.  A date clock sits at the 3 o’clock marker and the 12, 6, and 9 o’clock markers use Roman numeral hour indicators.  This Breitling watch also comes with a red lizard strap with a tang-type buckle.

Breilting for Bentley Mark VI Complications 29 Watch

In the past we have discussed two watches in Breitling for Bentley Serie Mark VI collections; Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Watch and the Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Complications 19 Watch. Today we will take a closer look at the Mark VI Complications 29.

Breitling for Bentley’s Mark VI Complications 29 watch comes in either rose gold or platinum and is made up of approximately 500 parts. The calendar on this Breitling watch is its best feature and it is programmed to feature the date, day, week, month, season, and moon phases while being sensitive to the various leap years. Measuring at 1/4th of a second it is certified by the COSC and includes limited edition pieces only. Only 250 watches were made of the Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Complication 29 Rose Gold Watches and only 100 were made of the platinum.

Besides looks and materials, technically, there is no difference between the different variations of the Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Complications 29. All Breitling watches in the collection have a Breitling Calibre 29B, mechanical self-winding movement, 28,800 vibrations per second, 38 jewels, and 30min and 12 min totalizers.

The Bentley Continental GT Has a Breitling Clock

We all want a Bentley Continental GT, the wood grain, the smell, the paint, the Bentley symbol on front, the rearview mirror, the back left tire, the license plate, the door handle… well you get what time it is.  Speaking of time, did you know that the Bentley Continental GT has a Breitling clock in it?

We all know Breitling and Bentley forged a very lucrative collaboration, and now they have taken it even a step further.  The difference between this clock and other Bentley car clocks is the new logo which is applied to the clock in gold with silver plated hands.  The clock is missing one thing though, a second hand, but who needs them anyway in a car.

With the greatest luxury being time, if you are in a Bentley I doubt you’d be counting seconds.

Breitling for Bentley Motors T

Available in steel or rose gold, the Breitling for Bentley: Bentley Motors T watch is an amazing product.  The bezel is adorned with an engine-turned motif giving flattery to Bentley dashboards.  This Breitling for Bentley watch has even more luxurious highlights including a raised engraving on the caseback representing three Bentley models the Speed 6, the R-Type Continental and the Continental GT.

Technical specifications include a Breitling Calibre 25B, a chronometer certified by the COSC, 28,800 vibrations per hour, 38 jewels, and an amazing Breitling chronograph (30 sec, 15 min, 6 hours).  The case of this Breitling for Bentley watch, the Bentley Motors T, comes in steel or a limited edition rose gold series.

Created for individuals who are passionate about fine mechanical engineering, it is equipped with an exclusive Breitling for Bentley movement, selfwinding Calibre 26B with a 60-minute totalizer in the centre.

Breitling for Bentley

One of my favorite Breitling collections is Breitling for Bentley. The two brands couldn’t have been matched better by cupid himself. Both brands have a love for complex mechanics, prestige, performance, and history. Not only do they have matching business focuses, but both brands sport a winged version of the letter B for their logos. As a result of this match made in heaven a wonderful collection of chronographs were born and adopted by both watch enthusiast and the automobile world. Below is an overview of the Breitling for Bentley collection including details of my two favorite models which celebrate “beautiful motors encased in beautiful bodywork.”

Bentley 6.75

Named after Bentley’s largest engine, the 6.75 litre that can be found under the hood of the Bentley’s Arnage Limousines, this watch comes water resistant with a screw-locked crown, and special decorated back. Buyers have a choice of steel, yellow or gold… and of course luxury lovers can buy a limited edition in rose or yellow gold.

Buyers of the watch can expect a Breitling Calibre 44B, self winding system, 30 minute and 12-hor totalizers, “Large aperture” calendar, and a COSC chronometer-certification.

Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon

This watch is a true combination of watch enthusiast and car lovers, just look at the name! Mulliner is a Bentley workshop and Tourbillion is a sophisticated mechanism in watchmaking.

Originality was the goal of this design because over the next two years only a few dozen will be made at the rate of two per month. The Bentley Mlliner Tourbillon include attributes such as a Breitling Calibre 18B, 1/6th of a second chronography, 21,600 vph, 26 jewels, 15-minute totalizer, and Pointer-type calender. It can be purchased in platinum, yellow, rose or white gold.
