Bentley and Breitling‘s long 17-year partnership is getting highlighted once again with a new watch release. The Chronomat, which is one of Bretiling’s most famous pilot’s watches, is the model of choice and spans over 36-years of history in the brand’s expansive lineup. The piece is also named the Breitling Chronomat Bentley — it’s made of 42 mm stainless steel and contains features inspired by the car manufacturer. You can find the legendary car brand’s logo engraved on the transparent sapphire case back.
Alongside the stainless steel design, the watch also features a timeless green-colored face, unidirectional bezel, self-winding mechanical movement and is water-resistant up to 200 meters (660ft). “The 1984 Chronomat occupies a very important place in our modern history,” Breitling CEO Georges Kern says in a press release. “The Chronomat Collection is a fitting tribute to the amazing watch that, more than any other, put us back in touch with our heritage.”
“Both Bentley and Breitling share illustrious heritages which have been the bedrock of future world-leading technological and design developments for our brands,” Adrian Hallmark, Bentley chairman and CEO, adds. “The new Chronomat Bentley exemplifies this commitment to honoring our authentic values while creating a new and enduring icon for today’s modern customers.’’
The steel-green Chronomat B01 42 Bentley is priced at $8,100 USD. You can learn more at Breitling.com.
