Breitling for Bentley Launches the Bentley GMT B04 S Carbon Body watch, featuring a “super sturdy” case machined out of carbon fiber resin. This is not to be confused with their Midnight Carbon cases which are Blacksteel. These are lightweight pieces with racing-inspiring materials produced in a limited run of 250 watches.


The case has some incredible detail and texture due to the carbon material, which is pretty cool. I am curious how it will hold up over time in terms of water resistance since the case material would be more susceptible to torque and other pressures but it states a 100m water resistance. I have always wondered this about the AP Royal Oak Carbon cases as well.

From Breitling:
Issued in a 250-piece limited series, the Bentley GMT B04 S Carbon Body is distinguished by its resolutely sporty exterior. The carbon case is based on cutting-edge technology already used for the chassis of Formula 1 racing cars, but entirely novel in a watch. The dial is also made of carbon with a visibly woven structure. A fine tribute to Bentley’s motor-racing feats, both past and present. The dual timezone Manufacture Breitling Calibre B04 is distinguished by its unprecedented user-friendliness.
