After ten years of working together, what better way for the high-end brands to celebrate than to create a special timepiece to commemorate the landmark occasion?
Available in a small batch of 1,000 pieces worldwide, the limited edition Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon Watch sports an all-black exterior with a titanium case and dial that highlights the companies' shared "Winged B" logo. The sporty rubber strap is stamped with the Bentley name, the brand's motif also found on the knurled bezel that mimics Bentley's famous radiator grilles. The dashboard-style dial displays two Breitling technical features and red-rimmed indicators underneath a cambered sapphire crystal. Hands and hour markers are distinguished from the black design by a matte coloring.
The exclusive timepiece is complete with a “30-second chronograph” system that is based off a 1926 Breitling patent, and provides highly accurate 1/8th of a second readings. Its self-winding chronograph movement is chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, the only one based an international standard. Those who simply must have this timepiece, even as a reminder to buy the matching car one day, can purchase it at Breitling Boutiques for $12,045.
