Bentley Motors and its partner of almost two decades Breitling are celebrating the launch of the Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition, produced in an exclusive series of just 25 pieces.
This striking watch embodies our joint commitment to pioneering spirit, expert craftsmanship and technological excellence. – Bentley Chairman and CEO, Adrian Hallmark
The Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition is a modern take on the original Breitling Premier wristwatches of the 1940s. The watch features a 42 mm case in 18 k red gold, rectangular chronograph pushers, a gold-brown alligator strap, and a transparent sapphire caseback that showcases the movement with its 22-karat gold oscillating weight. The special chronograph tourbillon caliber and cage can be admired through the distinctive green dial.
Powered by the Manufacture Caliber B21, the COSC-certified tourbillon movement offers around 55 hours of power reserve and is water-resistant up to 100 meters.
We’re proud of this elegant symbol of our brands’ shared values: quality, performance, and design excellence. – Breitling CEO, Georges Kern
Willy Breitling, the grandson of the brand’s founder Léon Breitling, was a Bentley driver. He patented the chronograph with two independent pushers at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock in 1934. He designed the original Premier wristwatches in the 1940s, Breitling’s first link from purpose to style. As Willy saw it, “When a man puts on his watch, it is the unmistakeable stamp of impeccable taste.”
Currently the longest car and watch partnership in history, Breitling and Bentley’s association can be traced back to 2002, when Bentley tapped Breitling to create an onboard clock that would reflect the unparalleled luxury, peerless quality and extraordinary performance of the Continental GT.
