There is a new limited edition dark watch in town. The Breitling for Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition celebrates the arrival of the all-new Bentley Continental GT, which they unveiled at the IAA 2017 in Frankfurt. The new watch comes with new material, its case is made from innovative Breitlight. The same material used in the Bentley Continental GT interiors found its way to the timepiece, and offer a serious amount of resistant to scratching and corrosion. The case features a streaked effect with a blue shimmer and striking Dark Sapphire blue tone, which comes straight from Bentley’s color palette.
Plenty of Bentley Continental GT special features appear on this watch. The diamond pattern on the dial is a Bentley loan from their new “diamond in diamond” stitched design, which is used in the leather of the new GT. On the dial, there are three sub-dials for 30-second, 15-minute, and six-hour totalizers. The date aperture is located between four and five o’clock. Its crown is screwed down and the ensemble is water resistant to 100 meters.
The COSC chronometer-certified Breitling B06 caliber movement powers the Breitling for Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition equipped with a “30-second chronograph”. Among the other activities it powers is the calendar, high-frequency 28,800 vph, the chronograph and the 70-hour power reserve. An inscription in blue is there to highlight the exclusive “30-second chronograph” feature.
The Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition comes with a rubber strap designed exclusively for this model with the same diamond design as the dial. It is held by a push piece-operated folding clasp. Bentley and Breitling are yet to announce the pricing for the 500-piece limited edition.
