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 case of this Breitling watch can come in rose gold or platinum and feature 100 meters of water resistance, screw-locked crown, glareproofed and convex sapphire crystal on both sides, and a 42 mm diameter. The Breitling dials are available in Silver Storm and Burnt Oak, and the straps are available in Barenia leather or crocodile leather.
Last week we started discussing the Breitling Chronomat luxury watch and its new facelift. The new watch is called the Breitling Chronomat B01 and it introduces for the 1st time its own 100% in-house chronograph movement.
Here are more features to expect…
Design: Sophisticated and elegant the new Chronomat B01 has a sleek design that out rivals its counterparts. From the circle engraved numerals to the geometric design of the dial this watch pull out all the stops. Our favorite feature this Breitling luxury watch is the color play of metallic’s that offer unique character and design. The leather strap can add a trendy spin why the Pilot bracelet keeps things traditional… the options are endless. The Chronomat B01 is available in four versions including steel, steel with a gold bezel, steel with a two tone bezel, and all gold. Other features include diamond polished hands, square grid patterned zone, and quarter hour markers on the bezel.
Luxury: It wouldn’t be a luxury watch without luxurious beginnings. The Chronomat B01 was created by Breitling in the Breitling Chronmetrie workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The watch has a COSC certificate. The COSC is a competitive chronometer certificate where only 5% of watches produced can lay claim.
Next week will be the final look at the new Breitling Chronomat B01. We’ll check out the movement and luxury watch assembly.
The Chronomat gets a serious facelift from Breitling and we just can’t cover this new Breitling luxury watch all in one blog posts. One of Breitling’s most loving watches goes under a serious operation and comes out of the operating room looking stunning.
We are talking about the new Breitling Chronomat B01 with a 100% in-house chronograph movement:
The Case: The case of the new Breitling Chronomat B01 has a elongated profile that molds the wearers wrist for a perfect fit. Aviation always being the theme, the unidirectional rotating bezel focuses on the need for flight and drive times by incorporating engraved numerals.
The Dial: The dial is stunning and the options are endless. You can get the dial in an hour marker or Roman numeral version. The design mixes a number of colors and materials to not only enhance the appeal of the watch but to increase visibility.
The Guts: We call the motor the guts because without good guts… well the watch would be nothing. The new Caliber B01 has some amazing features just like the older Breitling Chronomat luxury watches which can be traced all the way back to 1884. The Chronometer-certified watch has gone through 15 days of testing to make sure it received the coveted COSC certification like all Breitling watches. The result? 1,650 feet of water resistance, reliability, amazing precision.
Stay tuned as we delve deeper into Breitling’s new watch the Breitling Chronomat B01 in this 3 part series.
The Breitling Flying B is one of our favorite watches. That’s why we were thrilled when we found this Breitling luxury watch at The Watchery with a silver dial, a brown leather strap, and a great discounted price.
We love this watch because the dial has a very unique hour window at the 12 o’clock marker. A large Arabic number displays the date against a brown date window which matches the color of the brown leather bracelet.
Plus… this is one major super watch. This Bentley Flying B watch has a polished stainless steel case, engrave caseback with the famous winged “B” insignia, brown leather strap with white stitching, screw down crown silver dial and subdial, luminous silver tone hands and hour markers, scratch resistant sapphire crystal, automatic chronometer, 38 jewels, 42 hour power reserve, 330 feet of water resistance, and a 28B calibre movement.
If that wasn’t enough, this Breitling luxury watch has a jumping hour complication where the center dial indicates ten minutes and the hour is read through a window display that will jump at the change of the hour to the next hour.
If you love bold luxury watches with embellishments, nooks and crannies as well as lots of bold metals then the Breitling Bentley Mulliner Men’s Tourbillon Watch is the perfect watch for you.
One unique and popular attribute of this Breitling luxury watch is the skeleton subdial. Skeleton luxury watches have made a huge comeback in the last few years and Breitling has included the popular feature in this luxury watch.
Additionally, the Breitling Bentley Mulliner Turbillon has a platinum case, sapphire case back with see-through features, screwed down crown, bidirectional rotating bezel, black dial, tourbillion sub dial chronograph with date and minute register, silver hand and hour markers, manual wind COSC certified, date calendar at 9 o’clock, deployment buckle clasp and 100 m of water resistance.
Breitling timekeeping is no stranger to Bentley cars, and vice versa. The two companies have already joined forces with the Breitling of Bentley watches, a very popular and luxury watch brand… soon after Breitling clocks started showing up in Bentley’s and the two brands have been making sweet music together ever since.
The new continental series of cars by Bentley is no different. The Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed four door and the Bentley Continental GT Coupe are both new to the Bentley Continental line. The Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed has a 750 Nm 6.0 engine, it goes from 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds, and it can max out at 322 km/h.. at $400,000, it’s definitely a luxury.
Of course, the Breitling clock nestles between the two air vents above the GPS navigation system…
