Breitling have unveiled the Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon, the newest model from the Swiss manufacture’s ongoing collaboration with the luxury carmakers. This limited edition model mirrors the sleek style of the Bentley’s iconic automobiles.
The Bentley Light Body Midnight Carbon begins with an all-black 49mm case, underneath which is a lightweight titanium chassis featuring a highly resistant carbon-based coating. Inside, a Breitling Calibre 25B movement works at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The dial features a dashboard-style display highlighted by red-rimmed indicators, with a central hand that sweeps in a half minute instead of the customary 60 seconds that to an ingenious “30-second chronograph” system originally patented by Breitling in 1926. A variable tachometer, which measures speed and distance, is activated via a bidirectional rotating pinion bezel. Matte black hands and hour makers are enhanced by a luminescent coating to ensure optimal readability. Finally, a black rubber strap with a raised central motif echoing the radiator grilles on the prow of Bentley cars completes the look.
Only 1,000 pieces of this limited edition will be available worldwide.
