Breitling watch honours Bentley’s new GT

A Breitling luxury watch that pays tribute Bentley’s new Continental GT has been unveiled in the Middle East.

Described as a Grand Tourer on the wrist, the Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition is limited to 500 pieces, 25 of which are dedicated to the Middle East, the Swiss luxury watchmaker said.

The new Bentley Continental GT is a dramatic interpretation of the classic Bentley design with a new 6-litre W12 TSI engine, state-of-the-art on-board equipment, and a refined and beautifully hand-crafted interior.

Inspired by the vehicle, the new model has an ultra-light chassis made of Breitlight which is enhanced by bluish “Dark Sapphire” tints, and its exclusive engine equipped with a “30-second chronograph’’. 

Aed Adwan, Breitling Middle East, said: “Bentley is redefining the quintessence of Grand Touring by providing a blend of luxury and performance that is more potent than ever. Breitling for Bentley marks the occasion by launching a limited-edition model which reflects the spirit of this new road-going champion. Its subtly black streaked effect takes on a bluish shimmer which echoes the colour of the Bentley “Dark Sapphire” livery. With just 25 models available in the region, this model will no doubt be popular among our Middle East customers.’’

The ultra-light, ultra-sturdy case of the watch is made in Breitlight, a Breitling-exclusive high-tech material distinguished by its resistance to scratching, traction and corrosion, along with non-magnetic, thermal stability and non-allergenic properties. 

The dial features a diamond motif picking up the pattern appearing in several areas of the Continental GT interior and dashboard controls. 

The “motorisation” takes the form of a Breitling B06 calibre that is chronometer certified by the COSC. 

This movement is distinguished by its “30-second chronograph” system inspired by a 1926 Breitling patent, with a central hand completing a full sweep of the dial in half a minute – thus ensuring extremely accurate readings of times to the nearest eight of a second. 

This feature is highlighted on the black dial by the blue “30-second chronograph” inscription and measuring scale, picking up the subtle shades of the case. 

The watch is fitted with a rubber strap specially created for this model and bearing the same diamond motif as the dial.
