Recently, at one of the world’s biggest and most respected watch and jewellery shows, Baselworld, Breitling for Bentley released a series of new timepieces. The watches celebrate ten years of the Breitling for Bentley brand and are chronographs, each equipped with in-house motors. In particular, we love the Bentley B06 model.
Billed as the “perfect emblem of the Breitling for Bentley spirit”, the watch is exactly what you’d expect from a high-end watchmaker: a head-turning design combined with sophisticated watchmaking. The selling point of the Bentley B06 is the “30-second chronograph” system, which was inspired by a 1926 Breitling patent which ensure extremely accurate 1/8th second time readings.
In addition to this, the Bentley B06 is chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), one of the highest benchmarks in terms of precision and reliability for timepieces. The Bentley B06 is also self-winding and has a total of 47 jewels with over 70-hour power reserve. In terms of a case, there’s the option of steel or 18K red gold. It’s also water-resistant to 100 metres. We like how it’s glareproofed on both sides. For an added touch of luxury, it has a transparent sapphire crystal caseback.
The diameter measures a reasonable 49 mm. The strap is available in leather or if you feel like something exotic, crocodile leather.
