Breitling launches a special watch in celebration of its partnership with Bentley Motors. The Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition shares part of its design inspiration with Bentley’s Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, which was also launched today. The new Breitling timepiece commemorates 17 years of collaboration – the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer – and focuses on the Bentley Mulliner workshop, which since 1959 has crafted the leading luxury carmaker’s most unique tailor-made models.
Breitling’s partnership with Bentley Motors can be traced back to 2002, when the iconic automobile brand was designing its legendary Continental GT. Bentley commissioned Breitling to create an onboard clock that would reflect the unparalleled luxury, peerless quality, and extraordinary performance of the new grand tourer, which made its debut in 2003. The values that have always defined the partnership between the two world-leading brands are once more on display with the Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition. As its name suggests, the new Breitling watch has close links to Bentley’s Continental GT Mulliner Convertible.
A Breitling watch worthy of the Bentley and Mulliner names has to be a very special product indeed. The new chronograph has some close links to the interi- or of the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, the most luxurious GT ever designed, and particularly to the Breitling clock in the luxury automobile’s dash- board.
The Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition is limited to 1000 pieces. It features a 42-millimeter stain- less steel case presented on a blue alligator leather strap, echoing the Imperial Blue leather interior of the car. Its elegant silver dial recalls the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible’s dashboard clock. The watch features blue subdials – a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small-second subdial at 9 o’clock – an indication revealing the presence of the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, with an impressive power re- serve of approximately 70 hours. The dial features a white tachymeter scale on a blue inner bezel around the dial, with a red tachymeter inscription.
On the left side of the case is a plate with an engraved “Bentley” inscription, whose design is based on the engine spin dashboard found in historic Bentleys. Around the watch’s transparent sapphire caseback is an inscription that reads “MULLINER EDITION – BREITLING – ONE OF 1000”. The Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition is a COSC-certified chronometer.
