Created in celebration of the Bentley Continental GT Convertible Mulliner Edition, Breitling’s Premier Bentley Mulliner combines Swiss craftsmanship with British design. Details on the chronograph reference those of the interior of the Mulliner Convertible, particularly the Breitling clock in the automobile’s dashboard.
The Premier Bentley Mulliner’s 42mm stainless steel case is presented on a blue alligator leather strap, mirroring the Bentley Continental GT Convertible Mulliner Edition’s Imperial Blue interior. The timepiece utilises a blue, red, and white colour palette, to pay homage to British design. Set under Breitling’s signature glareproof sapphire crystal, the elegant brushed silver dial reflects the face of the automobile’s dashboard clock and hosts blue subdials; a 20 minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small-second subdial at 9 o’clock. The dial features a white tachymeter scale set on a blue inner bezel, with a red tachymeter inscription.
Another nod to Breitling and Bentley’s shared design DNA can be found in the Arabic numerals on the watch face, which reference those of the dashboard clock in the Mulliner Convertible. The red second hand and centred 60-minute scale surrounding the subdials further reflect the red stitching found through the interior of the automobile.
Turn your gaze to the side of the case to find a plate with an engraved ‘Bentley’ inscription; a design element based on the engine spin dashboard of historic Bentleys. With just 1000 pieces produced, the timepiece is strictly limited edition, with each watch engraved with ‘ONE OF 1000’. The chronograph retails at $11,690AUD.
