Breitling Develops New Clock for Bentley Continental GT Speed

Oct 19, 2007
Swiss watch brand Breitling develops timekeeping appliances for the cockpits of aircrafts and distinctively designed and functional wristwatches for pilots. Now the brand is reinforcing its links to the world of automobiles.

Specially for the new Continental GT Speed launched by luxury automaker Bentley, the Breitling company has completely redesigned the dashboard clock found in each of Bentley's legendary Continental models. The new Continental GT Speed has been appreciated by car experts as the most powerful Bentley's production ever.

The clock sports Breitling logo with the raised, winged B crafted in gold and silver-plated hands. The minute circle has become slimmer, while the hour circle passes by 12 numerals, with four larger numerals for quarter-marking.

The Breitling-for-Bentley successful partnership was born in 2002. The watchmaking company contributed to the design of the technical instrumentation and created the dashboard clock for the first Bentley Continental GT. Since then, the Breitling clock has also been used for the Continental Flying Spur four-door saloon and the GTC convertible.

Breitling-for-Bentley Cooperation
The names of Breitling and Bentley are united by their consistent identity, based on utmost performance, well-maintained tradition, high prestige, and innovative spirit. Breitling has also joined Team Bentley at the Le Mans 24 Hours race. The watch company developed a one-of-a-kind Breitling-for-Bentley chronograph specially to honor the celebrated car producer.

Bentley considers the Le Mans 24 Hour race to be of particular importance as it is a fine way to keep memory of the past glories of the prominent Bentley Boys, who boasted numerous victories at Le Mans in the 1920-s. Breitling provided support to Team Bentley as a way to show its appreciation of great performance and precision in the highly demanding environment of the Le Mans 24 Hours race.

The Breitling for Bentley chronograph was revealed to the horology world after the brand had undertaken thorough research in design and created the wristwatch reflecting the distinctive styling of the Continental GT, including the knurled finish of the Bentley controls. In the heart of the chronograph there beats an exceptional automatic movement, offering a variety of innovative functions.

The Breitling for Bentley watches feature huge and heavy yet elegant construction with sliding rule bezel, chronograph counters and large date window. Breitling for Bentley are available in a wide range of designs housed in highly-polished cases. All models of Breitling for Bentley are chronometer-certified, implying great precision and reliability of timekeeping.
