Breitling is thrilled to announce that it has renewed its partnership with Bentley, the celebrated manufacturer of British luxury cars. The two great brands have worked together since 2003, when Breitling became the first watchmaker entrusted to design an onboard clock for Bentley’s flagship model, the Continental GT.

Breitling CEO Georges Kern is excited about continuing the partnership with Bentley. He commented: “Bentley and Breitling share so many values. Both companies are known for quality, performance, and design excel­lence, and both can build on powerful historical leg­acies. It’s an ideal partnership, and, after more than 15 years, it is a pleasure to add another chapter to it.”


In announcing the renewal of its long-standing part­nership with Bentley, Breitling said that it would be in­tegrating special Bentley editions into its core product offering rather than in a separate Breitling for Bentley collection. The first of these extraordinary watches is the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Rac­ing Green. Powered by Breitling’s flagship Manufacture Caliber 01 in-house mechanical movement, which is visible through a unique transparent caseback with a metalized Bentley logo, the watch has an impressive 70-hour power reserve. These timepieces also have an engraved plate with a “Bentley” inscription. Inspi­ration for the design of the plate was taken from the dashboard of the historic supercharged 1929 “Blower” Bentley.

The watch is distinguished by its striking British racing green dial and is available with a choice of a stainless-steel bracelet or a British racing green leather strap that matches the dial. Contrasting subdials are posi­tioned at 3 and 9 o’clock, and a date window is located at 6 o’clock.

When Bentley Motors celebrates its centenary in 2019, Breitling will launch a dedicated limited-edition time­piece to celebrate 100 years of luxury motoring excel­lence.

In 2003, Bentley Motors, the most sought-after luxury car brand in the world, launched its very first Continental GT, the unrivaled grand tourer. Every detail in the Continental GTreflects Bentley’s ongoing commitment to quality, luxury, and performance, and, fittingly, the company chose Breitling to design the onboard clock.

Adrian Hallmark, who was Bentley’s Board Member for Sales and Marketing when his brand signed the agree­ment with Breitling in 2002, is now the Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors. He commented: “The long-standing collaboration between Bentley and Breitling is a shining example of how, when two like-minded brands work together in an authentic way, the performance of both is enhanced. As we approach our centenary year, we will of course be celebrating our past, but, more importantly, we will be looking to­ward the future with a passion for innovation. It gives me great confidence to move forward with partners like Breitling who share our commitment to technolog­ical excellence, expert craftsmanship, and a pioneer­ing spirit.”
