BREITLING Bentley

The collaboration between the two powerhouses began in 2002, Bentley motors were in the process of creating the Bentley continental GT when they commissioned Breitling to design a clock for the dashboard that would reflect the quality and craftmanship of the new motor.
This lead to the many years of the Breitling for Bentley range of watches being created by the watch brand, combining Swiss excellence in the horology field and the absolute class and excellence of the British motor industry.
The watches in the Breitling for Bentley collection have carried the details that draw from features on the Bentley, most notably the distinctive bezel design that was created to mirror the pattern of the grille on the luxury car.
Although the Breitling for Bentley collection is no longer part of the Breitling range, the Swiss brand still manufacture timepieces in connection with Bentley, now part of the Premier collection.
