A powerful new Bentley calls for a worthy new Breitling. Breitling for Bentley are celebrating the launch of the Continental GT V8 with its powerful new 4.0 V8 engine.
They have created a 250-piece limited series of the Bentley GMT chronograph.
The sleekness of the new timepiece is highlighted by the mobile bezel
created in a metallic red shade, contrasting with the black dial.
The Bentley GMT offers a clever multiple timezone display. It's equipped with an additional red triangle-tipped hour hand which
completes one rotation every 24 hours.

forward in one-hour increments in order to display the second timezone –
while distinguishing between day and night hours.
