WATCHES THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME
http://www.thewatchbox.com Like its namesake luxury auto, a Breitling for Bentley luxury watch looks best in British Racing Green. With this GMT Chronograph British Racing Green, Breitling seems to agree. It's a chronograph, a chronometer, a GMT, a dual-time, and a world time watch in one 49mm package. This much technology in a larger-than-life polished steel case evokes one car - and only one car. The Bentley DNA runs strong in this one. It's hard to say whether a dual-time or chronograph is the ultimate practical complication, so Breitling includes both. Whether keeping track of 24-hour races on tracks worldwide, keeping in touch with friends overseas, or clocking billable hours on the chronograph, this Breitling for Bentley GMT Chrono finds a way to make itself a daily impact player. The finish is exquisite and befitting of the premium brands that lend their names to this model. A semi-gloss dial features outstanding legibility in spite of its many calibrations. With 49mm of real estate, Breitling manages to include all of the secondary functions without falling into the trap that makes many of their pilot models unreadable. Subtle use of polished steel, black, green, and red accents creates a handsome aesthetic that does justice to its automotive inspiration while standing firmly on its own lugs as an outstanding luxury watch. The Bentley co-branding is subtle, and one need not be a collector or fan of Bentley automobiles to enjoy this watch on its own merits. This Breitling for Bentley GMT Chronograph British Racing Green is one of only 1,000 constructed in a limited, sold-out series. Available from thewatchbox.com with all original Breitling factory boxes, manuals, and documentation. Video and content by Tim Mosso.
