Willy Breitling, the grandson of the brand’s founder Léon Breitling, was a passionate Bentley driver. He patented the chronograph with two independent pushers at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock in 1934. Willy Breitling understood the desire for the elegance and glamour from watch lovers.

Nel 2002, Bentley Motors ha commissionato a Breitling la creazione di un orologio di bordo per la Continental GT e la partnership ha continuato a fiorire da lì. Creato nello spirito di un lusso e di una qualità senza pari, il nuovo esclusivo cronografo rende omaggio agli orologi di Willy Breitling e a W.O. Bentley, che ha aperto la strada all'industria automobilistica. Il nuovo orologio onora l'eredità e i valori moderni di entrambi i marchi in modo splendido.
