BENTLEY SUPERSPORTS

A VIBRANTLY COLOURFUL LIMITED SERIES

Breitling lines up on the starting grid a 3 x 1,000-piece limited series of the Bentley Supersports chronograph, with a “dashboard-style” dial enlivened by blue, orange or white-ringed counters and inner bezels. Clearly built for outstanding feats and performances, this exceptional watch is a fresh tribute to the Bentley Continental Supersports, the fastest and most powerful car ever made by the British manufacturer, and holder of the world ice speed record. A superchronograph for a supercar.

 

EXCEPTIONAL MOTORISATION

Inside its sporty, sturdy and elegant chassis, the Bentley Supersports limited series houses a selfwinding chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). It is equipped with an original and extremely practical central-hand 60-minute counter. The rotating bezel serving to activate the variable tachometer – an exclusive Breitling feature enabling measurement of average speed whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached – is adorned with the knurled motif typical of Bentley dashboard controls.
