Bentley Motors is celebrating 100 years of business with a little help from its friends. At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, brand partner Breitling unveiled a limited edition watch to mark the special occasion. Available in either 18k rose gold or stainless steel, the Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition emanates with eye-catching distinction. It debuted alongside the Bentley Continental GT Number 9 Edition by Mullner, making for quite the overall presentation.
The Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition is immediately distinguished by its brown burl elm dial, which takes direct inspiration from the wooden dashboard of the iconic 1929 “Blower” Bentley. Perched under a non-reflective shield of sapphire crystal, the dial hosts black subdials, Super-LumiNova-coated hands, a chronograph counter hand, and a white tachymeter scale on the black inner bezel. Additionally featured on the bezel is the word “TACHYMETRE” in red.
Look to the side of the 42mm case to find a prestigious “Bentley” inscription, providing yet another callback to the legendary “Blower” Bentley. Powering the watch is Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, which is visible through the transparent caseback. The stainless steel variant of Breitling’s latest is limited to 1000 units, while the rose gold model is limited to a mere 200. Get it before it’s gone.
