All good things come to those who wait, and Bentley is not in the business of beating the clock. Attention to detail is needed to build such luxurious automobiles. As such, an all-new Continental GT has been in the works for years. What began in 2003 has evolved with subtle revisions. But the new 3rd generation will arrive as the most anticipated luxury coupe in years. So Breitling has decided to celebrate the occasion with a new timepiece.
Limited to 500 examples, the Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition was unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Taking inspiration from the new car, the dial mirrors the same “diamond in diamond” pattern of Bentley leather. It is also the introduction of Breitlight, their new composite material. Resistant to scratches and corrosion, it is hypo-allergenic and non-magnetic. Movement is provided by their B06 Calibre which is chronometer-certified for accuracy. The 48mm case contains 47 jewels, 70 hours of reserve power, and a Bentley GT rubber strap. Expect to see Breitling and Bentley’s latest achievements in our 2017 Watch Guide.
