The much-anticipated, all-new 2018 Bentley Continental GT finally made its public debut at the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show. But we will still have to wait till early next year for the droolsome luxury coupe to arrive at the dealerships. However, Bentley has something for its patrons to keep them occupied till then. The British marque has introduced a limited production sport chronograph to celebrate the launch of the new Continental GT. The Breitling for Bentley GT Dark Sapphire Edition is a special variant of the existing Breitling for Bentley B06 chronograph with the traditional steel or gold on the case swapped for Breitling’s proprietary Breitlight polymer. The ultra-strong material has a subtle black, streaked effect with a blue shimmer that echoes Dark Sapphire from Bentley’s color palette.
The dial features a diamond pattern that mirrors the new ‘diamond in diamond’ design that can be found on the new Bentley Continental GT. The rubber strap on this timepiece was specifically created for this model and bears the same diamond motif as the dial. Inside the polymer case beats Breitling’s COSC-certified B06 chronograph movement that offers 70 hours of power reserve and 30-second chronograph function. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters and fitted with a screw-down crown. There is no word on the pricing of this special edition watch but Bentley has announced that it will be issued in a 500-piece limited edition.
