Breitling for Bentley: Bentley GT Ice and Bentley GT Racing Ice

Swiss watch brand Breitling decorates its two iconic timepieces of Breitling for Bentley line with the shades of ice and making them new special all-white “Ice” versions.

This original and sophisticated appearance features an Ice White dial – an exclusive Bentley livery colour – teamed with a rubber strap in the same shade. The faces of these exceptional sports models, enhanced by rimmed counters, evoke the dashboards of the finest Bentley Grand Tourers. The bezel with its knurled raised motif is reminiscent of the characteristic control buttons of the prestigious British car maker.

In terms of the chassis, the Bentley GT Ice chronograph has a steel case with an all-polished finish, while the even more sophisticated Bentley GT Racing Ice version is distinguished by finishes alternating between satin-brushed upper surfaces and polished sides; and its caseback bears a medallion with the outline of the famous Bentley Continental GT, the epitome of power and elegance representing the quintessence of the Grand Tourer tradition.

These two watches are driven by the self-winding Breitling Calibre 13B chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC and equipped with a calendar displaying the day and date through a large twin aperture at 3 o’clock. The bidirectional rotating bezel serves to activate the “variable tachometer”, a world-exclusive Breitling feature. When used in conjunction with the chronograph, this system enables the user to measure mean speed whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached.
