Breitling for Bentley - BENTLEY B06 S

The Bentley B06 with its original “30-second chronograph” system is now available in a new compact version accentuating its sophisticated and sporty design. The new special S version with a 44 mm diameter appeals devotees of fine mechanics offering a blend of elegance and performance. The knurled pattern on the bezel, a nod to the famous Bentley radiator grills, is picked up in the motif stamped on the black or silver dial.
Its engine, the Manufacture Breitling Calibre B06, entirely developed and produced in the Breitling Chronométrie workshops, and officially chronometer-certified, boasts an ingenious “30-second chronograph” system inspired by a 1926 Breitling patent. It involves a central hand sweeping around the dial in half a minute and thus ensuring extremely precise eighth-of-a second readings of the times it measures.
Another worldwide exclusive feature is the “variable tachymeter” with rotating bezel, serving to calculate average speeds whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached. The Bentley B06 S is available in steel or red gold and comes with a choice of a bracelet or a strap in leather, crocodile or rubber with a central raised pattern matching the bezel.
