The Breitling for Bentley watch, The Mark VI is an amazing watch… according the Breitling for Bentley website…
In 1946, the legendary Bentley Mark VI emerged from the company factories in Crewe. It was the first Bentley ever produced in these workshops, where the world’s most prestigious automobiles are still assembled to this day. Sixty years later, Breitling has revived the legend by presenting the Mark VI special series, a chronograph conceived in the spirit of tradition and performance characteristic of the entire Breitling for Bentley collection. In tribute to the heritage of excellence embodied by the famous limousine, this timepiece incorporates all the signature design features of the British manufacturer, such as the knurled finishing on the bezel, inspired by the Bentley controls. Merging know-how and elegance, it is graced with hour-markers cut from mother-of-pearl – a delicate work of fine craftsmanship – and the caseback is decorated with the Bentley emblem of the era, shown in relief. 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. This sophisticated mechanism is assembled in keeping with an extreme concern for reliability and precision, vouched for by the much-coveted COSC chronometer certification.
