As an official partner of Bentley Motors, Breitling celebrates launch of the new Continental V8 model with a limited edition timepiece.
This Breitling for Bentley GMT “V8? looks familiar to those who have seen other Breitling Bentley watches. It has its unique features though, such as the red inner city bezel, making a nice contrast with the black dial.
It also has an additional red triangle-tipped hour hand completing one rotation every 24 hours, and multiple timezone display. The movement is the automatic COSC-chronometer-certified chronograph, featuring Breitling exclusive “30-second chronograph” with a sweep seconds hand making one full turn of the dial in half a minute, enabling readings accurate to the nearest 1/8th of a second.
This fine timepiece is limited to 250 units, and is priced at $10,590. Not bad considering the car cost well over $200K!
