The Swiss lux­ury watch­maker has col­lab­o­rated with Bri­tish car­maker Bent­ley to re­lease the Breitling for Bent­ley GT Dark Sap­phire time­piece. The blue­black watch takes its de­sign cues from the new Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT, and has an ul­tra-light “chas­sis” or frame­work, made of Bre­it­light, a high-tech, scratch-, trac­tion- and cor­ro­sion-re­sis­tant ma­te­rial. The watch’s “en­gine”, mean­while, is equipped with a 30-sec­ond chrono­graph sys­tem, a world-ex­clu­sive fea­ture. The cen­tral hand com­pletes a full sweep of the dial in half a minute to en­sure ac­cu­rate read­ings to the near­est eighth of a sec­ond. The model is part of a 500-piece lim­ited edi­tion, of which only 25 watches will be avail­able to Mid­dle East col­lec­tors. These, in turn, are fit­ted with a rub­ber strap with the same diamond mo­tif as the dial. In June, Breitling re­served 20 pieces of its Chrono­liner B04 time­piece for the Mid­dle East, and in April the Breitling DC-3 World Tour plane, hous­ing the Nav­itimer Breitling DC-3 chrono­graphs, made a stop at Dubai’s Al Mak­toum In­ter­na­tional Air­port.
