Breitling and Bentley Celebrating in Style
Partners in Luxury and Performance
The new wristwatch commemorates the extraordinary collaboration enjoyed by Bentley Motors and Breitling since 2003. Both brands share a commitment to the highest quality, exquisite craftsmanship, outstanding performance and unrivalled luxury. Launched to celebrate Bentley’s 100 years of luxury motoring excellence, the Centenary Limited Edition is the latest model to grace Breitling’s refined Premier collection. Produced in 18k red gold and stainless steel versions, the new Premier Centenary Limited Edition offers outstanding design features. The elegant and unique wooden brown burl elm dial with black subdials (a chronograph minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock) is particularly eye-catching.
The contrasting subdials indicate that the watches are powered by Breitling’s flagship Manufacture Caliber 01. The in-house mechanical movement delivers an impressive power reserve of approximately 70-hours. The movement is visible through a unique transparent caseback featuring a Bentley logo. The 18k red gold version is engraved with a ‘ONE OF 200’ inscription while the steel version is inscribed ‘ONE OF 1000’, confirmation of the edition sizes for the watches. The dial features a white tachymeter scale on a black inner bezel around the dial, with a red tachymeter inscription. The Bentley Centenary Limited Edition in 18k red gold is presented on a brown leather strap whose pattern and stitching were inspired by the seats in a Bentley. The stainless steel version will also be available on the brown Bentley-inspired leather strap or on a stainless-steel bracelet.
