Breitling unveils Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition watch
March 11, 2019: Breitling and Britain’s Bentley Motors have had the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer. It started in 2003 when Breitling and Bentley launched their first watch collaboration.
At this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, Breitling introduced the Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition wristwatch, to commemorate the partnership and celebrate Bentley’s 100 years of luxury motoring excellence.
The Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition is an exceptional member of the Swiss watch brand’s elegant Premier collection. Produced in 18 k red gold and stainless-steel versions, some outstanding design features distinguish these limited-edition timepieces from all others. The elegant, unique brown elm burl dial with black subdials (a chronograph minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small-second subdial at 9 o’clock) is particularly eye-catching. These contrasting subdials indicate that the watches are powered by Breitling’s flagship Manufacture Caliber 01. The in-house mechanical movement delivers an impressive power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
The movement is visible through a unique transparent caseback featuring a Bentley logo. The 18 k red gold version is engraved with a “ONE OF 200” inscription, while the stainless-steel version is inscribed “ONE OF 1000”, confirmation of the edition sizes for the watches.
