Meet Breitling Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon Watch

Mar 21, 2013
Breitling debuts its new Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon watch, best described as elegant and ultra sporty.

The dashboard-inspired dial demonstrates two exclusive technical features of the brand. They are accentuated by red rimmed indications. The smart “30 second chronograph” system, crowned by a patent back in 1926, incorporates a central hand that sweeps around the dial in half a minute instead of the common 60 seconds, offering remarkably accurate 1/8th of a second readings.

While conventional tachometers are meant to be used for observations based only on times lasting less than 60 seconds, the new Breitling watch is built with a “variable tachometer” switched on via the rotating pinion bezel and can be used for measuring average speeds whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed achieved.

The all-black design makes one feel its originality and strength. The hands and hour markers are also presented in matt black provided by a luminescent coating for utmost readability in the dark.

The 49 mm case is crafted from black titanium. Built with a screw locked crown, it is 100-meter water-resistant. The dial is shielded by a cambered sapphire crystal, glareproofed on both sides.

The new Breitling Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon watch is teamed with a midnight black rubber strap that features a central raised motif matching that of the knurled bezel , making one think of the signature radiator grilles on the prow of Bentley cars.

The heart of the Breitling watch is a self-winding chronograph movement - Breitling Calibre 25B, offering the precision and reliability chronometer-certified by the COSC. The 38-jewel movement is operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The Breitling Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon watch is available in a limited number of 1,000 pieces.
