The Mark VI design of the Breitling for Bentley line pays homage to the spirit of the British brand’s tradition. Representing a variation on this same theme, Breitling has created a timepiece endowed with a mechanical complexity embodying several centuries of precious horological expertise.
The new Mark VI Complications 29 is a marvel of miniaturization such as only a few master watchmakers are still capable of creating. This chronograph consists of nearly 500 parts. It has a perpetual calendar programmed to display the date, day, week, month, season and phases of the moon, taking account of leap-year variations.
No less than thirteen hands are required to display this information, a task they perform with extreme accuracy, as this highly complex mechanical assembly is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. The Mark VI Complications 29 was made exclusively in rose gold and platinum, in limited editions of 250 and 100 respectively.
