Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist Breitling has introduced the Bentley GT ‘’Dark Sapphire’’ Edition to the Middle East market, according to a statement issued by the company.
The new model is issued in a 500-piece limited edition series, with 25 models dedicated to Middle East automotive and horology enthusiasts.
The statement said that the new Bentley Continental GT is a dramatic interpretation of the classic Bentley design with a new optimised 6-litre W12 TSI engine, state-of-the-art onboard equipment, a refined and beautifully hand-crafted interior.
Inspired by the vehicle, the new Bentley GT ‘’Dark Sapphire’’ model has an ultra-light chassis made of Breitlight, a Breitling-exclusive high-tech material distinguished by its peerless qualities.
It is enhanced by bluish “Dark Sapphire” tints and its exclusive engine is equipped with a 30-second chronograph,’ added the statement.
Luxury meets performance
“Bentley is redefining the quintessence of Grand Touring by providing a blend of luxury and performance that is more potent than ever. Breitling for Bentley marks the occasion by launching a limited-edition model which reflects the spirit of this new roadgoing champion. Its subtly black streaked effect takes on a bluish shimmer which echoes the colour of the Bentley ‘Dark Sapphire’ livery. With just 25 models available in the region, this model will no doubt be popular among our Middle East customers.’’ said Aed Adwan, Area Sales Manager at Breitling Middle East.
The dial features a diamond motif picking up the pattern appearing in several areas of the Continental GT interior and dashboard controls.
The exceptional “motorisation” takes the form of a Manufacture Breitling B06 calibre officially chronometer-certified by the COSC. This movement, entirely developed and produced in the Breitling Chronométrie workshops is distinguished by its “30-second chronograph” system inspired by a 1926 Breitling patent, with a central hand completing a full sweep of the dial in half a minute – thus ensuring extremely accurate readings of times to the nearest eighth of a second.
