Breitling for Bentley A Tribute to W.O. Masterpiece - Grande Complication Pocket-Watch

Mar 31, 2010
This year, the iconic Breitling for Bentley collection is joined by a new unique timepiece created to pay homage to the founder of the prestigious British car manufacturer - Walter Owen Bentley.

The Breitling for Bentley A Tribute to W.O. Masterpiece is a true paragon of Fine Watchmaking reflecting well-maintained tradition, supreme performance and exquisite craftsmanship innate to every creation of the brand.

The new Breitling Grande Complication pocket-watch boasts two of the finest horological complications - a perpetual calendar and a minute repeater. The perpetual calendar complication shows the date, day, month, leap years and moon phases, taking into account February 29th. As for the minute repeater, it strikes the hours, quarters and minutes on demand.

The heart of the exclusive Breitling pocket-watch is a highly-complicated 700-part movement. The mechanism has been inspired by a late 19th century blank, with just a few pieces left in the brands workshops. The movement boasts sophisticated finishing it is hand-polished, chamfered, and demonstrates the Cotes-de-Geneve pattern. It can be admired via a see-through case-back.

The case of the pocket-watch is sculptured in 18-carat yellow gold. Its cover holds a true surprise - it reveals an engraving that depicts Walter Owen Bentley holding the wheel of his racing car. The engraving also features the signature W.O. initials still used by Bentley engineers and craftsmen, as well as all lovers of fine automobiles.

The Breitling for Bentley A Tribute to W.O. Masterpiece has been presented at Baselworld 2010.
