Breitling for Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon Limited Edition

Breitling presents the brand new Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon chronograph in an entirely black-clad limited series as a tribute to the biggest Bentley engine, the famous 6.75 litre version that powers luxurious Mulsanne limousines.

This midnight-hued livery, achieved by a special ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment, enhances the sporting style of the satin-brushed steel case with its taut, dynamic lines and its knurled bezel inspired by Bentley’s famous radiator grilles. The dial also exudes dark elegance, enhanced by a vertical open-worked motif offering a glimpse of the movement. The caseback springs its own surprise, since the five spoke motif reprising the distinctive design of Bentley wheel rims also appears in black against the metallic background.

The self-winding chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), is distinguished by its original “large aperture calendar” system displaying the date in a highly readable manner via two distinct indicators: one for the tens and the other for the units.

Issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, the Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon comes on a rubber strap with a central raised motif echoing that of the bezel.
