We’ve previously featured the Breitling for Bentley Supersports ISR LE on Click Tempus. Here is the Breitling for Bentley Collection newest addition, the Brietling for Bentley Limited Edition Supersports Black & Chronograph, which has been made in tribute to the most powerful and fastest car ever produced by Bentley, the Continental Supersports.
The watch’s most striking feature is undoubtedly its dashboard inspired Royal Ebony dial, which features orange coloured inner bezels and sub dials. The large stainless steel case has a diameter of 49mm and houses the 26B Brietling Calibre automatic chronograph movement, which is COSC certified and beats at 28,800 vph.
The dial also features a date window that can be found at 6 o’clock. Taking a closer look at the watch’s chronograph, the ¼ second function has a centre mounted red arrow tipped hand as its hour counter and which tallies to 12 elapsed hours on the sub-dial that can be found at 9 o’clock.
The pinion rotating crisscrossed bezel, which features the same motif found on the dashboard controls of most Bentley’s, can also be used to activate the tachymeter and is an exclusive feature from Breitling. The tachymeter on the watch is actually quite useful as it can measure average speed regardless of how much time has elapsed, how fast you are going and how much distance you have covered.
The Supersports Black and Orange Chronograph is limited to just 1000 pieces and has a choice of straps including Bentley, Berenia or crocodile leather, as well as a rubber or steel bracelet. As well as black and orange, the collection is also available in white or blue.
The Breitling for Bentley Limited Edition Supersports Black & Orange Chronograph is available for around £7,720.
