BREITLING × BENTLEY

Breitling and Bentley

HISTORY

Breitling and Britain’s Bentley Motors enjoy the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer. In fact, it dates back to 2002, when Bentley, the world’s most admired luxury car brand, commissioned Breitling to design the onboard clock for the very first Continental GT, which was debuted the following year. Every detail in this unrivaled grand tourer reflected Bentley’s ongoing commitment to quality, luxury, and performance. It marked the beginning of an important partnership for both brands.

A PROUD HISTORY AND A PERSONAL CONNECTION

Breitling’s association with motoring has a long history. Its onboard chronograph, launched for aviation in 1931, was also designed for use on automobile dashboards. Furthermore, there is a personal connection between Bentley and Breitling that can be traced back some 70 years. Willy Breitling, the watch brand’s visionary leader and the grandson of founder Léon Breitling, was a devoted Bentley fan. From the late 1940s, the flamboyant watchmaker was a familiar sight on the roads between Geneva and La Chaux-de-Fonds at the wheel of one of his many Bentleys.

宾利出征勒芒赛事

宾利品牌不仅以豪华公路版轿车著称,也拥有着辉煌的赛车战史。1924至1930年间,著名的“宾利男孩”们曾五度摘取勒芒24小时耐力赛(24 Hours of Le Mans)桂冠。而且,这份成功并不仅仅止步于过去。2003年,宾利重返勒芒赛事,一举包揽冠亚军。在该届世界最具知名度的耐力赛事上,百年灵不但有幸担当宾利车队的主赞助商,还打造了一款限量版“宾利勒芒”(Bentley Le Mans)计时腕表,以庆祝此次壮举。
