In 1946, the legendary Bentley Mark VI emerged from the company factories in Crewe. It was the first Bentley ever produced in these workshops, where the world’s most prestigious automobiles are still assembled to this day. Sixty years later, Breitling has revived the legend by presenting the Mark VI special series, a chronograph conceived in the spirit of tradition and performance characteristic of the entire Breitling for Bentley collection. In tribute to the heritage of excellence embodied by the famous limousine, this timepiece incorporates all the signature design features of the British manufacturer, such as the knurled finishing on the bezel, inspired by the Bentley controls. Merging know-how and elegance, it is graced with hour-markers cut from mother-of-pearl – a delicate work of fine craftsmanship – and the caseback is decorated with the Bentley emblem of the era, shown in relief. Created for individuals who are passionate about fine mechanical engineering, it is equipped with an exclusive Breitling for Bentley movement, selfwinding Calibre 26B with a 60-minute totalizer in the centre. This sophisticated mechanism is assembled in keeping with an extreme concern for reliability and precision, vouched for by the much-coveted COSC chronometer certification. The Mark VI comes in a steel version with platinum bezel as well as in a limited series in red 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.
