Here’s a timepiece that is sure to make everyone you meet do a double take. Meet Breitling’s Premier Bentley Mulliner.
The watch draws inspiration from the Bentley Continental GT Mulliner convertible, something Breitling is familiar with, having worked with Bentley Motors since 2002. What started out as creating an onboard clock for the 2003 Continental GT has since blossomed into a 17-year partnership, which culminates in the Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner limited-edition timepiece.
There are only 1,000 pieces available, making this a very much sought after watch. The case of the watch is a 42mm stainless steel with a blue alligator leather strap, resembling the Imperial Blue leather interior of the car. It also comes with two blue sundials on the 9 and 3 o’clock, which is a small-second subdial and a 30-minute counter respectively. To ensure the watch is ever-accurate in its timing, it’s also a COSC-certified chronometer.
And of course, leave it to Breitling to link its philosophy to the timepiece and the dashboard clock. Both showcase sets of Arabic numerals — the clock has 12, 3, 6, and 9 while the timepiece shows every other hour instead. Sharing these numerals across the two pieces is a nod to the design DNA they share.
Being a limited-edition timepiece, you can expect the Breitling Premier Bentley Mulliner timepiece to feature some sort of engraving. This appears on the transparent sapphire case back, which reads: “MULLINER EDITION – BREITLING – ONE OF 1000”.
The Breitling Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley Milliner Limited Edition is priced at THB 291,000. Find out more here.
