What began as a special project between Breitling and the famed British luxury car manufacturer, Bentley, quickly turned into a full collection. The make of each watch in the Breitling Bentley line is inspired by the Bentley models, from the shape of the bezel to the design of the dial. Every model in the collection is also backed by the technical expertise of both the Breitling and Bentley names.
The partnership between Breitling and Bentley began in 2002 when the watch brand was tapped to design the onboard clock for the Bentley Continental GT. A year later, Bentley won at the Le Mans motorsport race, and Breitling released a special edition Bentley Le Mans watch to commemorate the victory. With a strong and successful partnership emerging, the two powerhouse brands decided to develop a full collection of watches called Breitling for Bentley.
When a watchmaker and car manufacturer come together, you can expect nothing less than the utmost technical expertise and complex mechanisms in their creations. The Breitling Bentley collection embodies the perfect union between watches and cars. Most models are equipped with a chronograph function and date display, while others showcase more intricate complications, like a perpetual calendar function or moon phase indicator. One of the most notable models is the Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon, Breitling’s only timepiece to feature a tourbillon function.
The aesthetic of the watches is inspired by Bentley models, from the particular shape of the bezels to the design of the dials. Within the collection there is a wide array of style options for the case and bezel materials, dial colors, and strap styles. The Breitling for Bentley watches are modern in size, running from 42 to a whopping 50mm.
There are a few models in the Breitling for Bentley collection that are most popular. The Breitling for Bentley 6.75 A44362 Chronograph is named for the car manufacturer’s famous 6.75-liter engine found in their Mulsanne limousines. The caseback of this model also features a small-scale replica of the Bentley wheel rims. The Bentley GMT A47362 epitomizes the balance of form and function within the collection. It’s one of the larger models in the collection, measuring 49mm, and the GMT function provides a practical touch, allowing you to track two different time zones simultaneously. The Breitling for Bentley Barnato is named after Woolf Barnato, a key member of the 1920’s group called the “Bentley Boys,” who would later become the owner of the Bentley Company. Finally, the Bentley Flying B series is a unique addition to the collection. It features a rectangular case, and its name pays homage to the iconic Bentley “Winged B” symbol.
