Breitling for Bentley

MIDNIGHT CARBON: Breitling and Bentley are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their partnership — the longest one on record between a luxury automotive company and a watch brand — with an ultrasporty new watch. Featuring an all-black titanium case with a carbon-based coating, a black rubber strap and cambered sapphire crystals, the Light Body Midnight Carbon features the knurled motif of Bentley on its bezel. “Designs are influenced and incorporated from the vehicles into the watches as much as possible,” said Thierry Prissert, president of Breitling USA. The new timepiece, which will be released in a limited edition of 1,000, will be unveiled at Bentley’s display at the Geneva Auto Show today.
