Bentley Motors and Breitling introduced a striking, contemporary new watch, the Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition. Limited to 500 examples, the timepiece honors the launch of the all-new Bentley Continental GT, which was unveiled at the recent IAA 2017 in Frankfurt. The third generation of Bentley’s definitive Grand Tourer features a 6.0-litre W12 TSI engine developing 635 PS (626 bhp) and 900 Nm (664 lb.ft.), and showcases both traditional craftsmanship and innovative applications of cutting-edge technology.
The new Breitling for Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition watch has been created with the same combination of precision and performance: the effortless performance and Grand Touring comfort of Bentley’s definitive Continental GT is reflected in the new timepiece. This exceptional new limited-edition watch features an ultra-light, ultra-strong case made of Breitlight – an exclusive new advanced material. Breitlight is resistant to scratching and corrosion. It does not contain magnetic or allergenic properties and has a subtle black, streaked effect with a luxurious blue shimmer that echoes Dark Sapphire from Bentley’s color palette.
The watch dial features a striking diamond shape that mirrors the new ‘diamond in diamond’ pattern that can be specified in the leather of the new Bentley Continental GT.
The Breitling for Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition houses a Breitling B06 calibre that is officially chronometer-certified by the COSC. The movement is developed in the Swiss brand’s Chronométrie workshops and is distinguished by the unique 30-second chronograph system that was patented in 1926 – a year before the first famous Bentley Boy win at Le Mans. A central hand completes a full sweep of the dial in half a minute, ensuring the ultimate precision in time-keeping, to the nearest eighth of a second. A blue ‘30-second chronograph’ inscription highlights this exclusive feature.
The Breitling for Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition watch has a unique rubber strap bearing the same design as the dial, secured by a push piece-operated folding clasp, ensuring optimal comfort.
