Breitling reveal Breitling for Bentley GT3 chronograph
Breitling has just revealed its newest Breitling for Bentley watch, a tribute to the Continental GT3 and Bentley’s Motorsport victories in 2014 and 2015: the new Breitling for Bentley GT3 chronograph. In this 500-piece limited series, Breitling for Bentley references the Continental GT3 race car’s sporting DNA with a black titanium case, carbon fibre dial, original twin-counter system and chronometer-certified selfwinding movement.
Breitling has been celebrating Bentley’s racing victories since our return to the track in 2003. As main sponsor of Team Bentley, Breitling toasted this victory by unveiling a chronograph named “Bentley Le Mans”, marking the start of the magnificent Breitling for Bentley partnership. Bentley returned to the track in 2014 with the race winning Continental GT3, chalking up major Blancpain Endurance and Pirelli World Challenge Series wins and several podium places in Europe, the United States and Asia over the last two seasons.
The chronograph to match great feats
To celebrate the impressive achievements of the Continental GT3 race car, designed and engineered by Bentley’s own Motorsport team, Breitling for Bentley announces this new limited-edition Bentley GT3 timepiece. The GT3 chronograph is a gem of style and performance worthy of the dynamic, sleek racing car after which it is named.
The watch’s black titanium case features a blend of sturdiness and lightness, two indispensable qualities in a performance environment. The carbon fibre dial exudes an ultra-sporting look inspired by racing cars. Clear readings of the finest feats are provided by the chronograph with its innovative display system featuring a 60-minute counter via a central hand (for times of less than an hour) and a combined hour/minute counter at 9 o’clock (for times of an hour or more).
At the heart of this peerless instrument beats a selfwinding movement chronometer - certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the only precision and reliability benchmark based on an international standard. The exclusive black rubber strap bears the inscription “Continental GT3” – the embodiment of the will to conquer driven by the Bentley spirit.
