Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling has announced the arrival of a limited edition to the most cosmopolitan model in the Breitling for Bentley collection – the Bentley B05 Unitime Midnight Carbon. Breitling has introduced this chronograph as a one-off in a striking black satin-brushed steel case. This effect has been achieved by using a high-resistance carbon-based treatment and is paired with a black dial with a raised globe motif and a brand-new strap combining a rubber core and a matt crocodile leather exterior.
The 500-piece limited series offers a combination of sportiness and classy elegance for this world time chronograph equipped with an innovative Manufacture Breitling movement featuring a mechanism protected by two patents.
Aed Adwan of Breitling Middle East says “This chronograph is equipped with a double-disk system allowing the user easy, completely precise timekeeping across 24 time zones. Functionality is key in all Breitling models and when the user changes time zone, all they need do is turn the crown forwards or backwards in one-hour increments to correct all indications in one smooth move – including automatic adjustment of the date to local time without any loss of precision. Additional user-friendly features include a 24-hour disk complete with a day/night indicator with white and black segments, while the 24-city disk takes account of ‘summer’/daylight saving time (DST).”
Like all Breitling movements, the new model is chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the only precision and reliability benchmark based on an international norm.
reitling has played a crucial role in the development of the wrist chronograph and is a leader in this complication. Breitling is also one of the rare companies to produce its own mechanical chronograph movements, entirely developed and manufactured in its own workshops. This family business is also one of the last remaining independent Swiss watch brands.
