This year, the house of Breitling has released its new Breitling for Bentley Supersports Light Body watch. Themed around sports, the model experienced its world premiere at Baselworld 2011 show.

On February 18th, 2011 the new Bretling watch was exposed on the wrist of Juha Kankkunen, a famous Finnish rally driver, while he was behind the wheel of his Bentley Continental GTC Supersports Convertible. The sportsman established a new record on ice, driving his car at a speed of 330.695 km/h.

The model is executed in a 49mm titanium case. It is offset by a bidirectional rotating pinion bezel with a variable tachymeter scale (circular slide rule). The back side of the model is engraved with an image of the Bentley Continental GTC Supersports Convertible.

At 3 oclock, the case features a screw-locked crown. It is joined by two chronograph pushers, located at 2 and 4 oclock. On the front side, the case is assembled with a double-sided glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 100 meters.

Ticking inside the new Breitling Breitling for Bentley Supersports Light Body watch is a self-winding Breitling Calibre 27B movement, officially certified as a chronometer by the COSC. Built on 38 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The caliber animates a set of functions, revealed on the dashboard-style carbon fiber dial, touched with red nuances. It offers a double-counter chronograph system and a dual-handed totalizer that ensures simultaneous reading of hours and minutes.

The new Bretling watch is mounted on a black rubber strap. Its issue is restricted to 100 pieces.
