With its light and sturdy titanium chassis, its dashboard-inspired dial enhanced by three ring-shaped counters and its typically Bentley bezel with a knurled raised motif, the Bentley Supersports Light Body 1,000-piece limited series evokes the finest paragons of performance and power created by the British carmaker. It was on the wrist of rally driver Juha Kankkunen in February 2011 when he broke the world Ice Speed Record (ISR) in northern Finland, with a top speed of 330.665 km/h (205.48 mph) achieved at the wheel of a Bentley Continental GTC Supersports. This peerless instrument is equipped with an ultra-reliable and ultra-precise selfwinding chronograph, officially chronometer-certified by the COSC. In honour of its sporting qualities, Breitling for Bentley has equipped it with a cleverly conceived and exclusive double chronograph-counter system, featuring a central minute hand and a two-hand totalizer serving to read off the hours and minutes at a glance, just as one normally reads the time on a watch. The Bentley Supersports Light Body is available with a red or green inner bezel or an entirely black dial, all fitted with a black rubber strap.

Breitling was founded in 1884. The brand counts among its earliest achievements the invention of the independent chronograph pushpiece in 1915 and the separation of the start/stop functions from that of resetting in 1923. The connection of Breitling with the world of aviation is said to have taken off in the early 1930’s, when the brand started creating onboard chronographs intended for … aircraft cockpits. With the introduction of the Navitimer in the first half of the 1950’s, Breitling had created what would prove to be one of the most iconic and everlasting pilots watch designs yet: the model hasn’t been out of production since. A variation of this model accompanied Scott Carpenter on his orbital flight aboard the Aurora 7 capsule in 1962. In the sixties, Breitling was part of the ‘Project 99’ consortium that was created with the aim of creating the first self-winding chronograph movement – the one that would become the caliber 11. Although the so-called ‘Quartz Crisis’ had hit Breitling hard, the brand would be one of the first to launch a completely new mechanical chronograph in the mid-eighties: the Chronomat. This watch would become another icon for Breitling and would serve as a catalyst for the industry as a whole. Besides the Navitimer and the Chronomat, the Emergency is arguably the third most emblematic model – featuring a never-before-seen transmitter system that couldn’t have been conceived by any other brand than Breitling. The 2009 introduction of the caliber 01 gave Breitling a in-house chronograph movement and it would serve as the base for a number of variations over the next few years. Breitling is the only company of this scale to submit 100% of its movements for COSC-certification, including the quartz calibers.
