BREITLING FOR BENTLEY: BENTLEY BARNATO AND BERNATO RACING




Breitling for Bentley Bernato



THE BENTLEY BOYS RIDE AGAIN
Breitling for Bentley is lining up two exceptional champions on the starting grid. named in honour of the most famous of the Bentley Boys, who was also the first driver to win three consecutive editions of the le Mans 24 Hours (1928, 1929 and 1930), the Bentley Barnato and the Bentley Barnato Racing chronographs are distinguished by their peerless performances and their resolutely out of the ordinary design. They feature ultra-sporty dials, including one with a highly original disc-type totalizer system. The understated and powerful case is topped with a broad bezel bearing a raised knurled motif inspired by Bentley control buttons. Equipped with transparent sapphire crystal casebacks, these top-class instruments reveal a truly unique vision through the reverse side, in the shape of anoscillating weight evoking the wheel rims of the new Bentley Continental GT. In terms of motorisation, they certainly have what it takes to win the race towards precision and endurance, thanks to a movement certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), along with a “30-second chronograph” system that is unique in the world. Two new Bentley Boys ready to rise to all manner of challenges.

IMPRESSIVE FEATS ACHIEVED IN GRAND STYLE
In 1923, Walter Owen Bentley sent one of his speed machines to take part in the first edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours. In 1924, the British firm created a sensation by winning the race with a Bentley 3 Litres – a feat that it accomplished four more times, in 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930, the two latter victories being earned in a Speed 6. This was the era of the legendary Bentley Boys: Benjafield, Birkin, Davis, Rubin, Kidston and above all Barnato, the most famous of them all, a multi-millionaire diamond merchant. Gifted sportsmen, authentic amateurs, often fabulously wealthy and irresistible charmers, the Bentley Boys raced first and foremost for honour, fired by a taste for challenges. Dedicated as much to partying as to winning, they were to leave an indelible imprint on the Bentley spirit: an unmistakable blend of performance and luxury. In 2003, Bentley revived its glorious sporting past by sweeping the first two places in the Le Mans 24 Hours ranking.

BENTLEY BARNATO
Resolutely Bentley in terms of its design, the Bentley Barnato associates a generously sized case with fixed bezel featuring a knurled raised motif and red-rimmed sports counters – just like on the dashboards of the finest sports cars from the British carmaker. Totally Breitling from a technical standpoint, it combines a selfwinding chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC with an ultra-efficient and ultra-legible “30-second chronograph” system. Its originality extends to the reverse side fitted with a transparent back serving like an open car bonnet to reveal a wheel-rim shaped oscillating weight. Available with a black or silver dial enhanced by applied hour-markers and tone-on-tone counters with a refined spiral motif, the Bentley Barnato comes in steel as well as in a 500-piece red gold limited edition. It can be teamed with a leather, crocodile leather or rubber strap, or with the particularly sturdy and comfortable Speed bracelet.

BENTLEY BARNATO RACING
The Bentley Barnato Racing special series features a spectacular design that makes it the most original of all Breitling for Bentley chronographs. The pointer-type counters are replaced by a highly original disc-type counters system displaying the hours and minutes of the measured time by means of two red triangles. The openworked shape of the silver-toned discs is reminiscent of the steering wheels on the famous Bentley models that won the Le Mans 24 Hours race five times between 1924 and 1930 – thanks to Barnato and the other Bentley Boys. The “30-second chronograph” serves to measure the best laps to the nearest 1/8th of a second. The oscillating weight inspired by the wheel rims on the new Continental GT provides a maximum of energy to the COSC chronometer-certified movement. Carved in steel for the standard version, the Bentley Barnato Racing takes on an even more exclusive aura in a 500-piece red gold limited edition.

AN EXCLUSIVE "30-SECOND CHRONOGRAPH" SYSTEM
Inspired by a patent filed by the founder’s son Gaston Breitling in 1926, the ingenious principle of the “30-second chronograph” is distinguished by its central hand sweeping around the dial in half a minute instead of the customary 60 seconds. This original layout provides readings of the 
measured times accurate to within 1/8th of a second.

THE BREITLING SUPER CONSTELLATION TAKES OFF AGAIN




After a temporary grounding period for maintenance work, the famous Breitling Super Constellation – one of the world’s three remaining flightworthy «Super Connies» – is preparing to take to the air once more. In a ceremony held on April 30th in Germany, Breitling renewed its financial support for the preservation of this legendary aircraft. The brand also announced the launch of a limited edition Navitimer chronograph that will delight devotees of the Super Constellation, while serving to raise funds to secure its future.

For aviation fans, the Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation remains one of the finest symbols of the conquest of the skies. Equipped with four ultra-powerful «turbo-compound» engines, this magnificent propeller-driven long-haul plane dominated civil aviation in the 1950s and established itself as the «King of the Atlantic». It is also famed for its incomparable silhouette featuring a dolphin-like curved fuselage and triple-tail design.

The Breitling Super Constellation «Star of Switzerland» is one of the last three «Super Connies» in flightworthy condition on the planet, and the only one based in Europe – as well as the only one equipped for passenger flights. Built in 1955, it was restored in the 1990s by a group of passionate devotees and made its grand comeback to the Old Continent in 2004. Since then, it has regularly taken part in various air shows, and each of its appearances is enthusiastically greeted by spectators.

Over the past few months, the Breitling Super Constellation has undergone various maintenance operations, particularly for corrosion issues. These hundreds of hours of work have also served to give it a new paint job featuring an elegant blue line accentuating its aerodynamic profile. The «Star of Switzerland» is now ready to take off again.

The plane was officially presented on April 30th in Lahr, in the Black Forest region of Germany, before representatives of the press and guests of the brand, and in the company of quadruple Olympic ski-jumping champion and «godfather» of the Breitling Super Constellation, Simon Ammann. During the ceremony, the latter presented the «Super Constellation Flyers Association» with a check for 200,000 Swiss Francs on behalf of Breitling in support of the endeavours to safeguard this historical aircraft.

The brand has also decided to launch a limited edition of its legendary Navitimer aviation chronograph, the sale of which will fund another 200,000 Swiss Franc check for the association. Issued in a run of 1,049 – in tribute to the Lockheed L-1049 – this exceptional instrument bears the inscription «Breitling Super Constellation» on its dial, as well as a golden B shaped like the 1950s logo, an initial also echoed on the plane’s three rear stabilizers. The caseback is engraved with the technical specifications of the «Super Connie» as well as its silhouette appearing in a medallion.

By supporting the safeguarding of the Super Constellation, Breitling confirms its determination to preserve the heritage of aviation – the magnificent adventure with which its own history is so closely entwined.

Breitling Chronospace «BREITLING JET TEAM»

Another Breitling Luxurious Limited Edition

Breitling Chronospace Breitling Jet Team


Breitling offers a limited edition of its Chronospace instrument for pilot dedicated to the Breitling Jet Team, the world’s only civilian flight team performing on jets. An exceptional chronograph for an exceptional unit.

Having been treated to a whole new look in 2010, the Breitling Jet Team continues to distinguish itself by its breathtaking aerobatics shows performed at speeds of almost 700 km/h. In tribute to its stunning feats, Breitling has created a 1,000 piece limited edition of the Chronospace, the latest of its instruments for professionals. This model is distinguished by the silvery dial adorned with the new team logo and with a plane representing one of the seven L-39 Albatros jets composing it. Based on cutting-edge electronics, the Chronospace offers a full range of functions that are useful to elite pilots such as those of the Breitling Jet Team – including 1/100th of a second chronograph with split times, alarm, countdown, dual timezone display with independent alarm, and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). It is powered by a Breitling SuperQuartzTM movement that is ten times more accurate than an ordinary quartz caliber. The LCD screens are equipped with a backlighting system guaranteeing optimal read-off by day or night. The double caseback amplifies sound signals up to a level of 90 decibels. The circular slide rule serving to handle all calculations relating to airborne navigation is activated by rotating the star-shaped bezel – an original and extremely ergonomic design. The satin-brushed woven steel Aero Classic bracelet accentuates the original character of this sturdy, efficient and accurate wrist instrument.

Breitling Windrider B-Class

A feminine brand of sophistication


Breitling windrider bclass

Caliber: Breitling 71 // Battery: CR1616 // bATTERY LIFE: 6 years. 


Strictly reserved for ladies, the B-Class provides the refinement one expects from a ladies watch, combined with the reliability required of a sports watch. The somewhat unconventional case is topped by a bezel alternating polished and satin-finish surfaces. The finesse of the dial and hands and the harmonious overall effect reflect the extreme care lavished on each detail. The natural mother-of-pearls dial is standard equipment on the B-Class, as are the blue or luxurious black dials. Each offers optimal time readout. Thanks to the skills of Breitling's jeweller-gemsetters, the B-Class is also available with a diamond-set bezel. The B-Class houses a SuperQuartz TM chronometer-certified movement driven by a lithium battery with a six year life. Water resistant to 100 meters (330 feet), it also has a three-gasket crown, cambered sapphire crystal glareproofed both sides, and a unidirectional rotating bezel.
