Who is Breitling watches?

Breitling SA is a Swiss watchmaker, based in Grenchen, Switzerland. Founded over 130 years ago by Léon Breitling, the brand is known the world over for precision-made chronometers beloved by the aviation community.

Who is Bentley Cars, and what is their connection with Breitling watches?

Bentley is the superlative British car brand, which has mirrored Breitling’s drive for the evolution of what already exists, adapting technology materials to deliver cutting-edge products set against a backdrop of brand excellence.

Breitling for Bentley brings together the best of two independent luxury companies that share a focus on efficiency, boldness, and the quest for perfection. With a working partnership that dates back to 2002, the brands have been seamlessly and successfully entwined.

Breitling for Bentley sets the pace for both style and functionality, combining precision with performance.

With both brands sporting a double-winged logo, the symbiosis between the brands is evident throughout the years. With a winged B-initial found in both logos, it underlines the commonality in values that can be found between the brands.

The history of Breitling for Bentley

The relationship was born in 2002 when the Swiss watchmaker designed a new Breitling Continental GT. Joining the boys from Bentley for the Le Mans 24-hour race in 2003, Breitling presented a 48.7-millimetre chronograph Breitling for Bentley Motors (A25362) to celebrate Bentley’s success in the iconic race.

Breitling for Bentley is underpinned by brand ambassador, David Beckham, carefully chosen to represent the modern man – stylish, with high standards of superlative taste. Like the brand the product, wearers will know who they are, and the values that they stand for.

In the wake of the first Breitling for Bentley watch (A25362), subsequent models – including the  H25362, the K25362 – stand out as distinct from other watches by an impressive 48.7-millimetre case a knurled bezel, which is inspired by the iconic Bentley radiator grille.

Breitling for Bentley - Drive for Evolution

Driven by functionality as well as design, Breitling for Bentley watches are equipped with precision time-keeping movements, such as the 30-second chronograph; with its sweeping second hand completing a full circle every half minute. Twice as fast as an ordinary chronograph, the 30-second chronograph was created to deliver high accuracy of measurement. The Bentley Motors T was launched in 2005, and boasts the same high-quality functionality but with a very specific bezel design.

With a focus on the future of timekeeping, Breitling for Bentley has also turned to the past for inspiration within its collections. The Mark VI line borrows from the Bentley-limousine Mark VI  – one of the most stunning vintage cars ever made. The Mark VI boasts high-quality workmanship that has been created to meet the needs of those looking for exclusivity.

As with the Mark VI, the Mulliner Tourbillon is the culmination of years of tradition excellence for both cars timekeeping. The Mulliner represents the best of Bentley’s master craftsmen capabilities, and is tailored and personalised to the individual demands of the client. As with the motor, Breitling for Bentley clients can choose between case materials and dial colours, as well as the shade of the watch strap. Unsurprisingly, the Mulliner Tourbillon is one of the most expensive elaborate Breitling watches ever known, and is the highlight of the Breitling for Bentley collection.
