Dedicated to motorsports and crafted to celebrate the launch of the Bentley Continental Supersports, the new Bentley Supersports B55 by Breitling is the vanguard of technology and performance.
Breitling has been collaborating with British luxury automotive marque Bentley since 2003, when the watch brand produced the dash clock for the Continental GT. This unique partnership has since given rise to a rich collection of mechanical chronographs, including the new Bentley Supersports B55, a tribute to the fastest Continental ever built.
Issued in a 500-piece worldwide edition, the Bentley Supersports B55 boasts a resolutely sporty appearance, bolstered by a durable yet feather-light titanium case that frames a dial in carbon fibre, a material favoured by the motorsports world and a key component of the new Continental Supersports. This intrepid touch is further enhanced by a double-layer red-edged and lined black rubber strap, while the dial boasts two ultra-legible LCD screens equipped with a backlighting system that can be activated by pressing the crown or by tilting the wrist – a welcome asset in the heat of the action.
The new timepiece is also the first Breitling for Bentley timepiece to feature an electronic movement. This new version of Breitling’s in-house B55 connected calibre is enriched with functions tailor-made for the automobile universe, including a flyback chronograph, lap timer and electronic tachymeter, as well as a “chrono rally” function, which serves to record up to 30 stages, complete with the departure date, start time and stage duration; a “chrono race” function designed for track races; and a “regularity rally” function, useful in competitions in which the objective is to cover a given distance in a given time.
A custom-designed smartphone-connected app further enhances this beautiful model’s functionality, while also allowing for the storage and transmission of data. www.breitlingforbentley.com
