The longest partnership between two uber cool brands – luxury automaker Bentley and luxury watch brand Breitling – ever, deserves a celebration! Breitling celebrates 100 years of Bentley with a special collectors' piece, the Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition.
Available in two variations – 18k rose gold and stainless steel – the 42mm special editions are available in a limited series of 200 pieces and 1,000 pieces respectively. The connect it shares with the Continental GT Number 9 automobile and to Bentley racing history with its brown elm burl dial matching the wooden inserts in the car’s dashboard is iconic. Thewooden dial is further enhanced with two subdials at 3 o'clock for the chronograph minutes and 9 o’clock for the running seconds. The date window is located at the 6 o’clock position. The dial is outlined with a white-on-black tachymeter scale, and the hour, minute and red-tipped chronograph counter hand are coated in Super-LumiNova.
Both the watches come with brown leather straps with stitching inspired by the classical Bentley leather seats. They are powered by the self-winding movement Breitling manufacture Calibre B01, which is on display behind a sapphire pane in the caseback. Equipped with a built-in column-wheel-controlled stopwatch function the Calibre holds 70-hour long power reserve.
