BREITLING × BENTLEY

Breitling and Bentley

历史

腕表品牌和汽车制造商之间展开合作并不少见,但百年灵和英国宾利汽车之间的合作伙伴关系是有史以来最长的。事实上,双方的合作可以追溯至2002年。当时,世界备受推崇的豪华汽车品牌宾利委托百年灵为首款欧陆GT车型(Continental GT)设计车舱仪表计时器。此款豪华运动轿车于次年上市,追求极致完美,力图于每一处细节体现宾利对品质、豪华与性能的不懈追求。两大品牌的合作就此正式揭开序幕。

一卷自豪历史、一段个人情怀

百年灵长年来与汽车行业有着不解之缘。其早在1931年推出的航空机载计时秒表,设计也同时适用于汽车仪表板。不仅如此,宾利汽车和百年灵之间还有一段可以回溯至70年前的个人情怀。品牌创始人莱昂·百年灵(Léon Breitling)的第三代传人威利·百年灵(Willy Breitling),是一位极富远见的领导者,也是宾利的忠实车主。20世纪40年代末起,人们经常能看到这位作风华丽张扬的制表师驾驶着其所拥有的众多宾利轿车之一,往返于日内瓦和拉绍德封(La Chaux-de-Fonds)之间。

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。

Breitling × Bentley Collection

Since 2018 Breitling has been integrating special Bentley editions into its core product offering rather than a separate Breitling for Bentley collection.

PREMIER B01 CHRONOGRAPH 42 BENTLEY MULLINER LIMITED EDITION

Celebrating Bentley’s Continental GT Convertible Mulliner Edition, the Premier Bentley Mulliner chronograph comes in a limited edition of 1.000 pieces. Bentley’s Mulliner Workshop is an extension of Mulliner, a family company founded by master coachbuilder Robert Bouverie Mulliner in London in 1870. For nearly 150 years, Mulliner has been renowned for its exquisite bespoke handcrafted coaches, created to the highest standards to meet the exacting requirements of its clients. The new Premier Bentley chronograph has some close links to the interior of the most luxurious GT ever designed by Mulliner, and particularly to the Breitling clock in the luxury automobile’s dashboard. Presented on a blue alligator leather strap, and featuring blue & red accents, the watch echoes the interior of the car. Also, the vertically brushed silver dial of the Premier recalls the car’s Breitling dashboard clock, and complements it’s sets of Arabic numerals: 3, 6, 9, 12 for the dashboard clock and 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11 for the chronograph. Sharing these numerals across the two pieces is a nod to their common design DNA. On the left side of the case is a plate with an engraved “Bentley” inscription, whose design is based on the engine spin dashboard found in historic Bentleys. Each Premier Bentley Mulliner Limited Edition is engraved “ONE OF 1.000”.
