Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition
A Breitling watch worthy of the Bentley and Mulliner names has to be a very special product indeed. The new chronograph has some close links to the interior of the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, the most luxurious GT ever designed, and particularly to the Breitling clock in the luxury automobile’s dashboard.
17 years of collaboration
Breitling have launched the special timepiece in celebration of its partnership with Bentley Motors. The Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition shares part of its design inspiration with Bentley’s Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, which was also launched today. The new Breitling timepiece commemorates 17 years of collaboration, the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer and focuses on the Bentley Mulliner workshop, which since 1959 has crafted the leading luxury carmaker’s most unique tailor-made models.
Bentley at Le Mans – History Since 1930
While Bentley is known for its luxurious road cars, the brand also has an impressive history on the track. Between 1924 and 1930, the famous “Bentley Boys” won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race five times. That success, however, was not only a part of the brand’s past. In 2003, Bentley returned to Le Mans, taking the first two places. At that edition of the world’s most famous endurance race, Breitling was Team Bentley’s proud main sponsor and created a limited-edition chronograph, the Bentley Le Mans, to celebrate the feat.
The Breitling Premier watches inspired by the partnership with Bentley hold a privileged place in the collection. No luxury car brand in the world better reflects the essence of the Premier family, with its elegance and flair, its performance, and its timeless design. Read more
