Bentley Renews Breitling Partnership With New Premier B01 Chronograph 42

Bentley has renewed their long-standing partnership with Breitling, which will introduce a new generation of premium watches to fans of both brands.

The two companies first came together in 2003, when Breitling created the onboard clock on the then-new Bentley Continental GT.

The renewal of the partnership will spawn more special Bentley editions of the watchmaker’s core products rather than separate timepieces exclusively made for Bentley. The first of these special watches is the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green.

The new timepiece is powered by Breitling’s flagship Caliber 01 in-house mechanical movement that’s visible through a transparent caseback with a Bentley logo. The Premier B01 Chronograph 42 offers a 70-hour power reserve.

These special watches also feature an engraved plate with a “Bentley” inscription on the side of the case with a design inspired from the dashboard of the classic supercharged 1929 ‘Blower’ Bentley.

Breitling’s latest creation comes with a striking British racing green dial and is offered with either a stainless-steel bracelet or a British racing green leather strap.

The two companies also announced a dedicated, limited-edition timepiece will be launched next year to celebrate Bentley’s 100th anniversary.

“As we approach our centenary year, we will of course be celebrating our past, but, more importantly, we will be looking to­ward the future with a passion for innovation”, said Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors. “It gives me great confidence to move forward with partners like Breitling who share our commitment to technological excellence, expert craftsmanship, and a pioneering spirit.”

“Bentley and Breitling share so many values”, added Breitling CEO Georges Kern. “Both companies are known for quality, performance, and design excellence, and both can build on powerful historical legacies. It’s an ideal partnership, and, after more than 15 years, it is a pleasure to add another chapter to it.”
