Breitling for Bentley
In 2002, Bentley launched the Continental GT, a breathtaking design, destined to appeal to style conscious car buyers. Located on the dashboard of this high-performance car was a Breitling branded clock. This signalled the start of a relationship, which still continues to this day, between the English car marque and the Swiss watchmaking company. The following year, Breitling released its Breitling for Bentley range of models, aimed at a slightly more affluent buyer.
Breitling sponsored Team Bentley and in 2003 saw the dual branded racing car achieve podium glory at Le Mans.
Where many of Breitling’s models have historically enjoyed links with aviation, the Breitling for Bentley models clearly reference the automotive world and draw on the car marque’s illustrious racing history.
