Breitling Bentley GMT Midnight Carbon
Mint condition Breitling Bentley GMT Midnight Carbon automatic chronograph, which is a black steel chronograph, on rubber strap with black steel deployant clasp which is adjustable. It is a limited edition of only 1000 pieces and this one is number 183 of 1000. It was originally purchased from authorised Breitling dealers, George banks in Preston in February 2012, so less than 12 months old when taken into stock with the balance of the two year warranty remaining on the watch. The original retail price of this watch is £9.500. It comes with a limited edition certificate, chronometer certificate and stamped warranty booklet as well as the other papers and boxes. The Bentley chronographs cultivate originality, but permeated by an eminently British sense of refinement and moderation. The look is immediately struck by the knurled finishing on the bezel, inspired by the Bentley control buttons. The case is distinguished by its imposing diameter. Breitling has combined this original design with an exclusive technical touch. The Bentley Motors chronograph features a unique mechanism known as the “30-second” type chronograph. The centre hand sweeps once around the dial in half a minute instead of the customary 60 seconds, an astonishing configuration that enables extremely accurate read-off to within 1/8th of a second. This distinctive feature is part of Calibre 25B, a movement stemming from the Breitling Chronométrie workshops and which is officially chronometer-certified, as indeed are all Breitling movements. In tribute to the automobile world, the Bentley Motors is equipped with another world exclusive feature, the “variable tachometer”, which enables one to measure average speed, regardless of the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached. The movement is a Breitling Calibre 25B, chronometer-certified by the COSC, self winding high-frequency (28,800 vibrations per hour), 38 jewels. 1/8th of a second chronograph, 30-second, 15-minute and 6-hour totalisers, with date. The case is large and substantial stainless steel. It is water-resistant to 100 metres. Screw-locked crown. Rotating pinion bezel with variable tachometer (circular slide-rule). Cambered sapphire crystal with anti reflective coating on both sides of the crystal. The dial is black with matching silver with stainless steel bracelet. UK retail price is £9,500. Dimensions are as follows. Diameter is 48 mm excluding the crown, 50 mm including the crown, lug to lug is 52 mm and thickness is 16 mm.
