High-End Swiss Luxury Watches
Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Breitling and British high-end car manufacturer Bentley have been working together since 2002. This cooperation has resulted in the Breitling for Bentley collection, which contains 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 grille.
The Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon is this collection's highlight, 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 unique 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.
In 2019 and 2020, Breitling introduced three new Breitling for Bentley models, one of which is the Premier Bentley Centenary. It is available in several materials – each with its own limited run – and comes with a dial made of elm burl. Another new release is the Chronomat B01 41 Bentley with a striking green dial and integrated bracelet. The last member of the trio debuted in late summer 2020. Known as the Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition, this timepiece features blue accents and is limited to a run of 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 ETA-2892-based caliber 25B ticks away inside the classic Breitling Bentley Motors. This model demands about 6,900 USD in excellent condition on Chrono24. The Bentley GMT with a black carbon case and the in-house caliber B04 is in the next price bracket at roughly 13,500 USD. Finally, watches with a tourbillon demand the highest prices and often sell for close to 60,000 USD.
Breitling also offers watches with an in-house caliber, including the Breitling for Bentley B06. The B06 is a 30-second chronograph that can measure time in increments to one-eighth of a second. Thanks to its 70-hour power reserve, this movement can tick away for almost three days without being wound. Mint-condition stainless steel watches cost around 7,300 USD. Variants in 18-karat rose gold come in at about 19,500 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 8,300 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 with a black coating. 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 movement that powers it is, like the famed racing cars, honed for high performance. The Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) has certified the Breitling caliber 41B. The movement is based on the 2892-A2 from ETA and has a power reserve of 42 hours. You can call a mint-condition model your own for about 6,300 USD.
Prices for GMT and World Time Watches
Frequent travelers know just how valuable the functionality of a GMT or world time watch is. In the Breitling for Bentley collection, these watches also boast a 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 watch costs almost 9,700 USD in mint condition.
Fans of classic GMT watches will find what they're looking for in 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 a 24-hour scale around the dial's edge. Prices for never-worn models come in at around 8,500 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 13,500 USD.
Prices for Black Midnight Carbon Watches
The Bentley GMT Midnight Carbon and Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon get their names from their sleek cases. Both models are made of stainless steel with a black coating and are 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 PS powers this luxury vehicle. The Breitling caliber 44B, based on the ETA 2892, ticks away inside the watch and comes with a 42-hour power reserve. The over-sized date beneath 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. Plan to spend around 8,800 USD for a used model.
The Bentley GMT Midnight Carbon's is also limited to a run of 1,000 pieces, comes with a GMT function, and costs a solid 10,500 USD pre-owned.
Bentley GT "Dark Sapphire" Edition
The Bentley Continental GT is one of the world's most luxurious coupés. This sports car even 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 this sports watch exist, making it quite hard to find. You can call one your own for about 7,300 USD.
Breitling for Bentley Flying B
The Breitling Bentley Flying B Chronograph is a bit different from its siblings. This 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 also had the movement chronometer-certified by COSC.
Breitling crafts the case out of stainless steel or rose gold. A stainless steel Flying B will set you back around 7,300 USD. The same watch in rose gold costs approximately 21,500 USD.
The black Midnight Carbon version is limited to a run of 100 pieces. Unlike the other watches in this collection, this Flying B has a polished bezel. The grille relief is located in the center of the dial. This model demands prices of about 8,500 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 rose gold.
Perhaps the most notable feature is the lacquered 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's case, 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 movement 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 8,800 USD on Chrono24. With only 200 copies in existence, the rose gold version is much rarer. It sells for about 24,500 USD.
Chronomat B01 42 With a Green Dial
The Chronomat B01 42 Bentley followed in 2020. Like the Centenary Chronograph, this model honors Bentley's 100th anniversary. It features a 42-mm stainless steel case and a 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 that resemble window blinds.
The caliber B01 powers this chronograph and provides it with subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. Thanks to its water resistance of 200 m (20 bar, 656 ft), you can even wear this watch while diving. Prices for a Chronomat B01 42 sit around 7,000 USD.
Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition
In 2020, Bentley launched the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner Convertible. At the same time, Breitling introduced yet another limited edition: the Premier Bentley Mulliner. This stainless steel watch has a 42-mm case and catches the eye with its numerous 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. This color scheme matches the Bentley's leather interior. Twelve applied Arabic numerals adorn the dial, each filled with luminous material. Finally, this watch is water-resistant to 10 bar (100 m, 328 ft).
Breitling outfits this model with the caliber B01. However, instead of three subdials, there are only 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 8,000 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.
Every Breitling Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon is a reflection of its future owner. Breitling only produces a few of these watches each year. When ordering the watch, the customer has several choices to make. Should the case be made of platinum or yellow, white, or rose gold? What color should the dial with mother-of-pearl indices be? The customer can also choose from six different veneers for the precious wooden ring on the case back.
The manual Breitling caliber 18B powers this luxury watch. The movement 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 around 60,000 USD on this timepiece.
