Breitling for Bentley

The Breitling for Bentley range of watches embodies the pursuit of perfection and beauty shared by Bentley motors and Breitling Watch Company.

The two companies collaborated in the design of the technical instrumentation of the Bentley Continental GT launched in 2002. In fact the dashboard clock with the Breitling signature keeps time on all the models in the ‘Continental’ series: The four doors Flying spear saloon, the GT and the GTC convertible.

Breitling for Bentley watches re-interpret several design characteristics of Bentley cars, such as the ‘Honeycombed’ radiator grille, the particular metallic motifs of the dashboard, the typeface on instruments, the colours of the bodywork and in some models the precious wood veneers.

Breitling for Bentley chronographs and watches are all equipped with movements that are chronometer certified by the C.O.S.C. (The Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the highest official distinction in terms of reliability and precision.

To produce a Breitling for Bentley timepiece takes a period of about ten month. Each movement is artfully crafted by hand and enriched with elegant finishing details, so that the watches are beautiful inside as well as outside.
