In Dark Sapphire, no less

Bentley announced the new Continental GT a few weeks back at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show, and Breitling have now announced the Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Limited Edition. A mere 500 pieces are being issued in total, with 25 models dedicated to the Middle East.

jcrop-previewInspired by the vehicle, the Bentley GT Dark Sapphire timepiece has an ultra-light chassis made of Breitlight and enhanced by bluish Dark Sapphire tints. The motorisation takes the form of a Manufacture Breitling B06 calibre officially chronometer certified by the COSC. This movement, entirely developed and produced in the Breitling Chronométrie workshops is distinguished by its 30-second chronograph system inspired by a 1926 Breitling patent. The chronograph feature is indicated by the blue-tipped central chronograph hand and a blue printed chapter ring the reads 0-30. In addition to the 30-second counter, the 4Hz movement automatic has 15-minute and 6-hour counters, as well as a date function.

The Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition is fitted with a rubber strap – specially created for this model and bearing the same diamond motif as the dial.

The Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition is limited to 500 pieces
