Breitling For Bentley Pocket Watch


Breitling has made a Grande Complication pocket-watch in honour of Walter Owen Bentley, the founder of the great, British car manufacturer.

To be shortly unveiled at Baselworld, if features both a perpetual calendar and a minute repeater. Based on a late 19th century design from Breitling’s archives, the timepiece comprises almost 700 parts.

Its refined finishing – hand polishing, chamfering, and Côtes de Genève – is visible through a transparent caseback.

The case is made from 18-carat yellow gold case and is engraved with an image of W.O. Bentley at the wheel of one of his early racing models.
