Love car-inspired watches? Here’s news for you: British car brand Bentley has just renewed its partnership with Swiss luxury watchmaker Breitling, with which it has enjoyed a strong alliance since 2003. As part of the new deal, Breitling will now sell Bentley special-edition watches among its regular offerings.
“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,”says Bentley chairman and CEO Adrian Hallmark. “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.”
The first of the new watches to come out of this collaboration is the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green, which comes with a British Racing Green dial and leather strap (duh). The stainless-steel case is 30mm in diameter, and houses a Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 movement with a a 70-hour power reserve.
While a Bentley (and a Breitling, for that matter) are way out of our league financially, we can’t help but admire the results of their collaboration. Check out these photos for a closer look.
