Enthusiasts, drivers, aspiring owners – there's a chic gift to be found for each type in the top drawer range of Bentley-branded accessories just unveiled by the legendary British automaker in time for the holidays. From bespoke backgammon sets to Breitling clocks, the same principles of luxury, craftsmanship and style that Bentley adheres to with its hand-built cars have been applied to items designed to entertain when one is not actually behind the hand-stitched leather wheel.
The backgammon set is made by London’s Geoffrey Parker, who has been handcrafting extravagant amusements for gentlemen of means from the world’s finest materials for over 50 years. Everything about the set can be customized to the recipient’s exact specifications to match the details on the customer’s Bentley. Hand-bound leather casing in the color of your choice, knurled metal and leather checkers featuring Bentley’s famed wing emblem and inlaid wood on the board evoke the best in British motoring. The set is priced at about $4,700.
In celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Bentley’s victory at the Le Mans 24-hour race, the marque has created a collection of items ranging from vintage-styled leather weekend bags to a set of enticing espresso cups bearing colorful racing graphics. The Breitling for Bentley desk clock, echoing the distinctive timepieces built into the dashboard of every Bentley, is finished in the world’s finest burr walnut and with Bentley’s signature knurling, and is priced at about $1,500.
The classic weekender racing bags are inspired by Bentley’s rich racing heritage. A version in glove-soft British racing green featuring the number '9' and a black leather model embellished with a ‘2’ pay tribute to the marque’s famed 1930 Le Mans winning cars.
