Collaboration between watch brands and automakers is not uncommon, but the partnership between Breitling and Bentley is the longest ever. In fact, the cooperation between the two parties can be traced back to 2003. At the time, the world’s highly regarded luxury car brand Bentley launched the first Continental GT. Every detail of this luxury sports wagon reflects Bentley’s tireless pursuit of quality, luxury, and performance. Moreover, the brand is most suitable to commission Breitling to design its dashboard clock. This is the beginning of an important partnership between the two brands.At this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, Breitling launched the Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition timepiece on March 5, 2019, not only to commemorate this remarkable partnership, but also to celebrate Bentley’s 100th anniversary of luxury and quality.
Georges Kern, CEO of Breitling, said the new watch reflects the values shared by Breitling and the legendary British carmaker: “We are proud of our partnership with Bentley. Both companies are well-known for unbeatable quality, performance, and design. The Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition timer is a tribute to Bentley’s history, luxury craftsmanship, breathtaking racing pedigree and important intimacy with Breitling.
