Here are the photos, and some insight in addition to the video review that was posted earlier.
The Breitling for Bentley Motors is my favourite watch, and probably draws the most looks and remarks… some for its sheer size, and some for it’s beauty.
With the distinctive Knurled Bezel that is a Bentley trademark, the watch does not go unnoticed, and the wide, shallow dial gives extremely easy reading with a bold statement in style. Applied stainless steel indexes and a gloss white dial, guilloche subdials all add to the elegance of the watch.
The beautiful large applied wings logo looks fantastic in the 12 o’clock position, and inside beats a 30 second chronograph which is more accurate than your standard chronos. Subseconds are located at 3 o’clock. Slide rule bezel with inner gear system that allows the watch to be more water resistant white still using the inner bezel and without the inconvenience of using a crown to turn the inner bezel like the IWC Aquatimer and Sinn 903.
The back of the watch is simple, with the model and some text engraved. Serial number and model numbers as well. The Breitling Bentley 6.75 has a much nicer caseback, and I wish this one did too.. but oh well!
But as you can see from the shot above, its all about wrist presence and class… and the Breitling for Bentley Motors has them both! This watch looks incredible on the wrist with it’s enourmous size yet maintains a level of class rarely associated with wrist clocks of this size such as the Breitling Super Avenger which tends to be less class, more bling/sporty.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and short review of the Breitling Bentley Motors watch!
