Breitling launches a new Bentley Limited Edition Premier wristwatch, titled the Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition. Unsurprisingly, it takes quite a bit of inspiration from the colour-scheme of the new Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible. The Imperial Blue inner bezel and sub-dials (30-minute counter & small-seconds) matches that of the body colour and dash. While the silvery-white dial and red running seconds hand, ‘Tachymeter’ inscription and centred 60-minute scale, matches that of the car’s upholstery and red cabin stitching, respectively.
Housing the 70-hour power-reserve COSC-Certified Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01, this watch is also water-resistant to 100 metres (10 bar) and comes on a matching blue alligator leather strap. Around the watch’s transparent sapphire case-back is an inscription that reads “MULLINER EDITION – BREITLING – ONE OF 1000”.
17 Year Long Collaboration
Breitling and Bentley Motors go back almost two decades. After a brief period of separation, Georges Kern brought the iconic partnership back, shortly after joining Breitling as CEO in 2017. Bentley has since featured prominently within the Premier collection – a sensible collaboration, seeing as the Bentley ‘aesthetic’ lends itself nicely to the sporty yet dressy Premier collection.
No luxury car brand in the world better reflects the essence of the Premier collection, with its elegance and flair. Says George, “The Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition that we launched a year ago was warmly received both by Bentley and Breitling fans. The Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition, with its clear links between Bentley’s and our DNA, is a logical next step in our shared story. It is also a testimony to Bentley Mulliner, whose name is synonymous with heritage, craftsman- ship, and outstanding performance.”
