As worn by Ge­off Dowd­ing, di­rec­tor, Bent­ley Mulliner

Evo India - - WATCHES -

‘Back in 2005 I bought one of the orig­i­nal Breitling for Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT watches, which I wear on a fre­quent ba­sis and have grown very fond of.

‘For many years, how­ever, I have been fas­ci­nated by the Rolex brand. I bought my first Rolex, a Date­just model, when I was in my late 20s and later pro­gressed to a steel Cos­mo­graph Day­tona. Re­cently, how­ever, I spot­ted a lovely, blue­dial Milgauss with a green-tinted crys­tal. It was an im­pulse pur­chase made purely on aes­thetic mer­its – but I love the his­tory of the Milgauss, too. The orig­i­nal ver­sion of the 1950s was one of the first se­ri­ously an­ti­mag­netic watches on the mar­ket.’
