Breitling watches were the sponsors of the Bentley motor racing team when it Bentley, perhaps the Le Mans 24 Hour race in 2003. To honor this success Breitling has actually produced the Bentley collection. In my viewpoint, there are a lot of ‘scandal sheet’ watches, but I believe the Bentley perhaps one that will certainly stand the test of time and end up being a collectors’ item in years to come.
With the Bentley collection there are a number of models, each offering something different in regards to style and function.
The Breitling Bentley 6.75 is ending up being the flagship watch of this collection. When you take a closer appearance at the watch, it’s not tough to see why. To begin with, it’s huge. When you use it individuals are going to observe it, even if they don’t know exactly what a Breitling watch appears like. The casing diameter is 48.7 mm. The factor for the huge size of the dial (in all the designs of Bentley, other than the Flying B) is the incorporation of a circular slide guideline, a feature that was first presented with the Breitling Navitimer monitor 50 years back and still being made today. By the way, the slide rule bezel with its inner gear system allows the watch to be more water resistant than the Navitimer watch; it’s resistant to 100m.
The distinct feature of these watches, most of them belonging and produced the classic round shape. You can when you see this in the Breitling Bentley replica watches are made in a store window.
Let’s Continue This Analysis
The movement is an ETA 2892 with chronograph and huge date problems. It’s a 30 2nd chronograph, makings it more precisely than a standard 60 2nd chronograph.
Other points of interest when taking a look at the broad, shallow dial are the applied wings logo; the 3 subsidies; and the two date aperture windows – one rectangular window for the ones and a second window for the teens.
The watch has a distinct Knurled bezel which is a hallmark feature of Bentley vehicles. This little design detail really underpins the relationship between these 2 luxury product producers.
A special feature on this 6.75 design is the Bentley rim (spokes) included on the case back. No other model of watch in the Bentley collection showcases this design on the case back.
The Breitling for Bentley Motors is a little different because the sub-dials are put at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions with the date aperture between the 4 and 5 hour marker. Unlike the 6.75 the date aperture consists of just one rectangular window. The watch casing is the same as is the bezel and movement. The back case doesn’t feature the Bentley spokes, but you do get the Bentley logo design.
The Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon actually is something unique. Each watch is customized by the buyer. They can alter the casing metal; platinum, yellow, white or increased gold as well as the dial color. Another gorgeous feature is the case back; its glass with a valuable wood boundary – the future owner has a selection of 6 woods. The system is a hand injury ETA 2892-A2 movement with Chronograph, Moon Phase and Tourbillon issues.
The Mulliner Tourbillon commemorates the workshop made famous for creating cars that exemplify luxury, and this watch does not disappoint that paradigm. This watch could at some point end up being a real collectors’ item in its own right, since Breitling will only produce a couple of dozen of them. So if you’re looking for a watch that could increase in value with time, this is the one for you. Similar to the motorcars, this watch can be totally personalized for each individual owner, with metals like increased gold, platinum and white or yellow gold on the case. The dial color and crocodile strap can likewise be personalized; and with an interior that makes use of only the greatest quality chronograph movements, the Breitling for Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon is really a one-of-a-kind.
The Bentley Flying B is an extreme departure from the usual style of any Breitling watch during that the casing is rectangular in shape. Its diameter is 57.3 mm x 38.5 mm. Another radical departure from the type is the incorporation of a jumping hour mechanism where the hour hand is changed by a disc aperture at 12 o’clock. The minute hand is more standard, a single arm positioned in the dial’s center. Seconds are shown in an off-center subdial at the 6 o’clock position.
All of the Breitling watches in the Bentley collection are stunning. Selecting one, obviously, is a matter of personal taste. If I was going to be the owner of one these watches I would choose the Bentley 6.75 with bronze dial and brown leather strap – charming.
