Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition
Breitling and Britain’s Bentley Motors enjoy the longest-ever partnership between a watch brand and an automobile manufacturer.
In fact, it dates back to 2003, when Bentley, the world’s most admired luxury car brand, launched the very first Continental GT. Every detail in this unrivaled grand tourer reflected Bentley’s ongoing commitment to quality, luxury, and performance, and, fittingly, the company chose Breitling to design the onboard clock. It was the beginning of an important partnership for both brands, and now Breitling has announced the release of the Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition, which celebrates 100 years of luxury motoring excellence.
Breitling’s partnership with Bentley Motors can be traced back to 2002, when the iconic automobile brand was designing its legendary Continental GT. Bentley commissioned Breitling to create an onboard clock that would reflect the unparalleled luxury, peerless quality, and extraordinary performance of the new grand tourer, which was debuted in 2003.
At this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, Breitling introduced the Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition wristwatch on March 5, 2019, to commemorate the partnership and celebrate Bentley’s 100 years of luxury motoring excellence.
Breitling CEO Georges Kern says the new watch reflects the values his brand shares with the legendary British automaker: “We’re proud of our partnership with Bentley. Both companies are known for quality, performance, and design excellence, and both are built on powerful legacies. The Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition is a celebration of Bentley’s history, its luxury, and its incredible racing pedigree, as well as its important, intimate connection to Breitling.”
In 2018, Breitling introduced the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green, a striking wristwatch with a distinctive British racing green dial. The Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary Limited

is an exceptional member of the Swiss watch brand’s elegant Premier collection. Produced in 18 k red gold and stainless-steel versions, some outstanding design features distinguish these limited-edition timepieces from all others.
The elegant, unique brown elm burl dial with black subdials (a chronograph minute counter at 3 o’clock and a small-second subdial at 9 o’clock) is particularly eye-catching. These contrasting subdials indicate that the watches are powered by Breitling’s flagship Manufacture Caliber 01. The in-house mechanical movement delivers an impressive power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
