Breitling for BentleyOn August 18, 2008 by breiblog
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.”
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.
Other models of this amazing collection include the Bentley GMT, Bentley Motors, Bentley Motors T, Bentley GT, Bentley GT Racing, Flying B, Flying B Chronograph, Mark VI, Mark VI Complications 19, Mark VI Complications 29.
