Breitling Bentley GMT Chronograph Limited Edition

Hmm…

I like and appreciate the new Breitling Navitimer Caliber 01 that was unveiled earlier this week.  This “thing”, however, is another story.  I’ve never been a fan of the Bentley for Breitling series in general, but the green rubber strap and matching green chapter ring on the dial of this new Breitling for Bentley GMT Chronograph looks tacky.  Breitling likens the color to the “British Racing Green colour characteristic of the finest English racing cars” and says that the watch will “[serve] as an international ambassador of the time-honoured British automobile tradition.”  Let’s just say that I can think of more, ahem, tasteful ways to celebrate Bentley’s launch of the new Continental GT.

What about you — do you like this watch?  Why or why not?  I’d love to hear your opinion — drop a comment below or on our Facebook page or on Twitter (@perpetuelle).

    I agree with you Kyle. This is another rather boring watch. You know what I ask myself ?
    The few people that can afoord and actually buys a Bentnley who in their right mind think that they
    would choose a mainstream brand as Breitling to put on their wrist ?

      You said it, Reiko!

      Wish I was in Munchen right now ;-) Prost!

    I actually like the green – it’s the rest of the watch that’s overwrought, which I guess is standard fare for Breitling. I do get a bit of a chuckle at the “celebrating the time-honoured British automobile tradition.” Is that the tradition of horrible electrical systems? Or the tradition of all major British brands either having gone out of business (Rover) or being owned by foreign companies: Mini (BMW), Bentley/Rolls Royce (VAG), Jaguar/Land Rover (Tata). I guess Aston-Martin is still (mostly) British owned.
