The Breitling For Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition celebrates the launch of the all-new Bentley Continental GT which was unveiled at the IAA 2017 in Frankfurt last week.
The new Breitling borrows heavily from the Continental GT, most notably the dial and strap which has been decorated with a “diamond in diamond” pattern, the same motif which can be found on the GT’s leather upholstery and dashboard controls.
Likewise, it also features an ultra-light ‘chassis’ made of Breitlight, which is an extremely durable material created by Breitling weighing in six times lighter than steel and highly resistant to scratching and corrosion.
At 48mm wide, it’s powered by an in-house, chronometer-certified B06 Calibre movement with a generous power reserve of 70 hours. The movement also features a “30-second chronograph” system inspired by a 1926 Breitling patent, which means the central dial hand completes a full sweep in only 30 seconds, giving you accurate time readings to the nearest eight of a second.
The Breitling For Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition will be limited to only 500 examples. Pricing is yet to be announced but we’ll keep you posted; www.breitlingforbentley.com
