Smart, streamlined shape, precision engineering, and a sporty combination of carbon fibre and rubber—you’d be forgiven for thinking I was describing a sportscar, but of course, I’m talking about a watch. Essentially, that’s what Swiss Breitling has done in their Breitling for Bentley series; taken all the best qualities from both brands, and combined them to make high-performance machines for the wrist.
The Breitling B06 Midnight Carbon Watch is the latest in a line of watches spawned from this mighty collaboration. A limited edition of only 500 pieces, the watch is based on an earlier model, the Bentley B06, but has received a slick new paintjob. Both the steel case and bezel have been coated in a black, high-resistance carbon-based treatment, and the bezel is styled to resemble the radiator grilles on Bentley cars.
The watch uses the in-house calibre B06, which draws inspiration from robust and powerful Bentley engines, and offers a power reserve of 70 hours, as well as being COSC certified. The watch features a 30-second chronograph system, which is capable of telling the time to 1/8th of a second—the perfect watch for lovers of style, speed and accuracy.
