Breitling introduced its proprietary case material, Breitlight, on the Avenger Hurricane watch in 2016, and has used the high-tech alloy in several other models since. Now the brand brings Breitlight to its automotive-influenced Breitling for Bentley family – on a cheap replica watches that pays tribute to the British marque’s new Continental GT automobile: the Bentley GT “Dark Sapphire” Edition.
Continuing the specific Bentley-influenced design touches, the dial features a diamond motif that echoes the look of the Continental GT’s dashboard controls and interior. The subdials at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, and the sweeping central hand — identify this watch as one of Breitling’s “30-second” chronograph models, which use a system — inspired by a 1926 Breitling Replica patent — in which the central hand makes a complete sweep around the dial in only half a minute, thus ensuring elapsed time readings to 1/8 second. Fifteen elapsed chronograph minutes are tallied on the subdial at 3 o’clock and six elapsed hours on the register at 6 o’clock, while running seconds are displayed at 9 o’clock. The words “30-second chronograph” in distinctive blue tone on the predominantly black dial, also speaks to this world-exclusive system.
The Breitling for Bentley GT “Dark Sapphire” Edition is secured to the wrist by a black rubber strap — specially created for this model, with a stitched-in-blue blue diamond motif matching that of the dial — and a push-piece-operated folding clasp.
