It’s not unusual to find watch brands and auto manufacturers working together, as the two industries have a long, intertwined history relating directly to car racing. However, it’s definitely unusual to see a partnership last as long as Breitling and Bentley’s 17-year union. Now, to celebrate that record-setting alliance, the pair has fashioned the Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition chronograph watch.
Based on and released in conjunction with the new Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, this 42mm driving-focused timepiece is limited to just 1,000 examples in total. It boasts a stainless steel case on a blue alligator leather strap and a silver dial — meant to mimic the car’s interior and its dash-mounted clock. Furthermore, it’s powered by a Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 automatic mechanical movement with a 70-hour power reserve. Complete with a duo of chronograph sub-dials, a tachymeter bezel scale, and exclusive branding, these individually-serialized watches are sure to turn heads, whether you’re behind the wheel of a Continental GT Mulliner Convertible or not. Pricing and availability have yet to be revealed, but keep your eyes peeled.
