A garage is no longer required to satisfy a passion for cars ; a spot on the wrist is enough. For lovers of powerful sports cars, Breitling has launched a 3×1,000 limited series of the Bentley Supersports Chronograph. A new tribute to the Bentley Continental Supersports, the series-made car that holds the word ice speed record, these three XXL-sized super-chronographs house a COSC-certified movement equipped with an extremely practical and original 60-minute counter with a central hand. The rotating bezel serving to activate the variable tachometer is adorned with the raised knurled motif typical of Bentley controls, while the dial displays a dashboard style design enlivened by an inner bezel and counters in blue, orange or white.
