Breitling Celebrates Bentley’s 100 Year Anniversary With Limited Edition Watch
Breitling and Britain’s Bentley Motors enjoy the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer. In fact, it dates back to 2003, when Bentley, the world’s most admired luxury car brand, launched the very first Continental GT. Every detail in this unrivaled grand tourer reflected Bentley’s ongoing commitment to quality, luxury, and performance, and, fittingly, the company chose Breitling to design the onboard clock.

The movement is visible through a unique transparent caseback featuring a Bentley logo. The 18 k red gold version is engraved with a “ONE OF 200” inscription, while the stainless-steel version is inscribed “ONE OF 1000”, confirmation of the edition sizes for the watches.
