The other new Release for Basel 2009 from Breitling is the new Breitling for Bentley Motors Speed. This is really just another Motors with a new dial. The new Black Velvet dial does look interesting, with the raised chrome edges around the subdials. While I like this model, I already have a Motors T (and previously a Motors), and this would be too much of a duplicate.
Very nice. Same specs as the Motors.
