Luxury Watches Meet High-End Cars
From 2002 until mid-2019, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Breitling and British high-end car manufacturer Bentley worked together to create luxury masterpieces. The collaboration resulted in the Breitling for Bentley collection, a line of exquisite wristwatches that combine the finest Swiss craftsmanship with refined British style. Most models feature a distinctive bezel with a relief pattern reminiscent of Bentley's characteristic grilles.
The Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon is the highlight of the collection, as every piece is made to order. The future owner can build their own unique timepiece by choosing from various case materials and dial colors. They can even determine the wooden decoration on the case back. Breitling only produces a few examples of this special watch each year.
Other top watches in the Breitling for Bentley series feature in-house calibers with chronograph and world time functions. One such watch is the Bentley B05 Unitime. This timepiece displays the time in 24 time zones simultaneously. If you only need two time zones, you may also enjoy the Bentley B04 GMT with an additional 24-hour hand.
The Premier Bentley Centenary is available in various limited editions and has a wooden dial made of elm burl. The Chronomat B01 41 Bentley is particularly impressive with its green dial and integrated bracelet. The Premier Bentley Mulliner is a limited edition timepiece with blue accents and a production run of just 1,000 pieces.

How much does a Breitling for Bentley cost?
Prices for a Breitling for Bentley largely depend on its material and movement. At the lower end of the price range, you'll find the stainless steel Breitling GT with the caliber 13B, a modified ETA 7750. You can purchase this timepiece for around 5,200 USD. The classic Breitling Bentley Motors is powered by the ETA-2892-based caliber 25B. This model in mint condition demands an investment of about 5,600 USD on Chrono24. The Bentley GMT with a black carbon case and fitted with the in-house caliber B04 comes in at roughly 12,500 USD. Finally, timepieces with a tourbillon demand the highest prices and often sell for close to 53,000 USD.
The Breitling for Bentley B06 is also equipped with an in-house caliber. The watch is a 30-second chronograph that can measure time in increments of one-eighth of a second. Stainless steel models in like-new condition cost around 6,000 USD. A variant in 18-karat rose gold will set you back around 17,000 USD. At 49 mm, the Bentley B06 is best suited to larger wrists. The B06 S model is 5 mm smaller, giving it a more universal appeal. This version changes hands for roughly 5,700 USD.
An Homage to Woolf Barnato
The Breitling Bentley Barnato 42 is dedicated to the British racing driver and financier Woolf Barnato (1895-1948). He was one of the most important members of the so-called "Bentley Boys," a group comprised of rich British racing drivers who frequently won with Bentley cars in the 1920s.
The 42-mm Bentley Barnato 42 is available in plain stainless steel or black. The latter is limited to a run of 1,000 pieces and gets its sleek appearance from a black carbon coating. Fittingly, Breitling has dubbed this model the Bentley Barnato 42 Midnight Carbon. The chronograph caliber that powers it is, like the famed racing cars, honed for high performance. This Breitling caliber 41B is based on the ETA 2892-A2 and chronometer-certified by the COSC. It also has a power reserve of 42 hours. You can buy a mint-condition model on Chrono24 for about 6,100 USD.
Prices for GMT & World Time Watches
Frequent travelers know just how valuable the functionality of a GMT or world time watch is. The Breitling for Bentley collection offers a number of these watches equipped with an additional chronograph function. One highlight is the Bentley B05 Unitime, which displays 24 time zones simultaneously. When you change time zones, it's easy to reset the displays using the crown. This 49-mm stainless steel timepiece costs about 8,500 USD in mint condition.
Fans of classic GMT watches should take a look at the Bentley B04 GMT. In addition to the local time, it can display the time in a second time zone with the help of an extra hand and 24-hour scale at the outer rim of the dial. Prices for unworn models come in at around 7,100 USD.
The Bentley GMT B04 S Carbon Body is a highlight among Breitling's GMT watches. Its case and dial are both made of carbon – the same material used in Formula 1 and other motorsports. This timepiece has a limited run of 250 pieces and costs roughly 11,700 USD.
Prices for Black Midnight Carbon Watches
The Bentley GMT Midnight Carbon and Bentley 6.75 Midnight get their names from their sleek cases. Both models are made of stainless steel coated in black, and measure 49 mm in diameter.
The name of the Bentley 6.75 refers to the Bentley Mulsanne, the car company's flagship automobile. A 6.75-liter, eight-cylinder engine with 512 HP powers this luxury limousine. The watch is powered by the Breitling caliber 44B, based on the ETA 2892, and comes with a 42-hour power reserve. The oversized date below 12 o'clock is a defining feature of this model. With a limited run of only 1,000 pieces, there are very few examples of this timepiece on the market. One of these will set you back about 6,400 USD.
The Bentley GMT Midnight Carbon is also limited to a run of 1,000 pieces, comes with a GMT function, and costs a solid 9,200 USD pre-owned.
Bentley GT "Dark Sapphire" Edition
The Bentley Continental GT is one of the world's most luxurious coupés. This sports car has a watch dedicated to it, namely the Bentley GT "Dark Sapphire" Edition. It is the perfect timepiece for anyone who owns a Continental GT. Thanks to its ultralight Breitlight case, it hardly adds any weight to the car. The in-house caliber B06 with a 30-second chronograph powers this watch. Only 500 copies of the sports watch exist, making it quite hard to find. The price comes in at 6,600 USD.
Breitling for Bentley Flying B
The Breitling Bentley Flying B Chronograph is a bit different from its brethren. The chronograph has a rectangular case with integrated chronograph push-pieces. The three rectangular subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock perfectly match the watch's shape. The caliber 44B powers this model. The movement is based on the ETA caliber 2892-A2 and has a 42-hour power reserve. Breitling has had the caliber chronometer-certified by the COSC.
Breitling crafts the case out of stainless steel or rose gold. A stainless steel Flying B will set you back about 6,400 USD. The same watch in rose gold costs approximately 12,200 USD.
The black Midnight Carbon version is limited to a run of 100 pieces. Unlike the other watches in the collection, this Flying B has a polished bezel. The grille relief is located in the center of the dial. This model demands an investment of approximately 8,400 USD.
Bentley Models From 2019 and 2020
Breitling presented several exciting new Breitling for Bentley models in 2019 and 2020. One of the timepieces, the Premier Bentley Centenary Chronograph Limited Edition, celebrates the car manufacturer's 100th anniversary. This watch is available in stainless steel or 18-karat rose gold.
Perhaps the most notable feature is the clear lacquered and polished elm burl dial with two black subdials at 3 and 9 o'clock. Applied silver bar indices mark the hours. Inside the 42-mm chronograph, you'll find the in-house caliber B01. This chronometer-certified movement boasts a 70-hour power reserve. A sapphire crystal case back provides a view of the caliber at work. The watch is water-resistant to 100 m (10 bar, 328 ft).
The stainless steel edition is limited to a run of 1,000 and changes hands for around 9,500 USD on Chrono24. With only 200 copies in existence, the rose gold version is much rarer and sells for about 24,400 USD.
Chronomat B01 42 With a Green Dial
The Chronomat B01 42 Bentley was created in honor of Bentley's 100th anniversary. It features a 42-mm stainless steel case and striking green sunburst dial with applied bar indices. Breitling pairs the watch with a Rouleaux bracelet, which is integrated into the case and resembles similar bracelets from the 1980s. The name comes from its rounded links, resembling window blinds.
The chronograph is powered by the caliber B01, which provides the timepiece with subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. Thanks to its depth rating of 200 m (20 bar, 656 ft), you can even wear this watch while diving. Prices for a Chronomat B01 42 Bentley sit around 7,200 USD.
Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition
When Bentley launched the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible, Breitling introduced yet another limited edition: the Premier Bentley Mulliner. This stainless steel watch measures 42 mm in diameter and catches the eye with a number of colorful accents. The subdials, tachymeter scale, and leather strap are all blue, while the chronograph seconds hand and 60-minute scale in the middle of the dial are red. The color scheme matches the Bentley's leather interior, and the watch is water-resistant to 10 bar (100 m, 328 ft).
Breitling equips this model with the caliber B01, which offers a bicompax layout with two subdials at 3 and 9 o'clock. Limited to a run of 1,000 pieces, you can find this watch on Chrono24 for roughly 6,800 USD.
Exclusive Customizable Watches With a Tourbillon
The Bentley Mulliner is really something special. The coachbuilder Mulliner has almost 250 years of experience in building bodies for carriages and automobiles. Today, the body specialist is the personal commissioning department at Bentley in Crewe, UK. Every Bentley Mulliner is a customized automobile based on the customer's wishes. Customers include royalty, the super-rich, and presidents. Around 100 artisans and technicians work together to fulfill the extravagant requests of their select clientele.
The Breitling Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon was also custom-made to fulfill the wishes of the buyer. Breitling only produced a few copies of the watch each year. When ordering, the customer had to choose between a platinum or yellow, white, or rose gold case.
These luxury timepieces are powered by the manual Breitling caliber 18B, which is also COSC-certified. One special feature of this caliber is that it's a 30-second chronograph. The tourbillon at 6 o'clock demonstrates Breitling's incredible watchmaking prowess. Depending on the material, expect to spend about 53,000 USD on this timepiece.
