Breitling & Bentley renew partnership with new chronograph
November 16, 2018: Breitling, the Swiss watchmaking company and Bentley, the British luxury automobile company, have collaborated once again for the B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green.
The two great brands have worked together since 2003, when Breitling became the first watchmaker entrusted to design an onboard clock for Bentley's flagship model, the Continental GT. The new chornograph is distinguished by its striking British racing green dial and is available with a choice of a stainless-steel bracelet or a British racing green leather strap that matches the dial. Contrasting sub dials are positioned at 3 and 9 o'clock, and a date window is found at 6 o'clock.
In announcing the renewal of its long-standing partnership with Bentley, Breitling said that it would be integrating special Bentley editions into its core product offering rather than in a separate Breitling for Bentley collection. The first of these extraordinary watches is the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green. Powered by Breitling's Manufacture Caliber 01 in-house mechanical movement, which is visible through a unique transparent case back with a metalized Bentley logo, the watch has an impressive 70-hour power reserve. These timepieces also have an engraved plate with a "Bentley" inscription. Inspiration for the design of the plate was taken from the dashboard of the historic supercharged 1929 "Blower" Bentley.
