Within its workshops located in Crewe, England, Bentley hand assembles its largest engine, the 6.75 litre version that powers, the luxurious Arnage limousines. In homage to this know-how that is unique in the world, Breitling has created a chronograph named Bentley 6.75, a timepiece symbolising the perfect alliance between tradition and performance, as does the engine after which it is named. In addition to the chronograph mechanism, the Bentley 6.75 is equipped with a “large aperture” calendar showing the date in a highly readable manner through two separate tens and units indicators. Assembly of this sophisticated mechanism is governed by an extreme concern for reliability and precision, as is confirmed by the much-coveted COSC chronometer certification. Whether in the case design or the dial workmanship, technical accomplishments go hand in hand with superlative aesthetic refinement. The bezel is adorned with the elegant knurled motif characteristic of most Breitling for Bentley models. The Bentley 6.75 chronograph comes in a choice of steel or yellow gold. For the most demanding collectors, Breitling has also manufactured a limited edition in rose gold.

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.
