The Breitling for Bentley BO5 Unitime watches collection sees the success and the expertise of two luxury companies rolled into one. Breitling formed a strategic alliance with the car manufacturer back in 2003 and to this day, the former have been manufacturing dual branded timepieces, just like the car marque has been equipping the dashboards of their vehicles with the iconic Breitling name. Motor vehicle-inspired references have thus ran vividly throughout the veins of this unique collection – radiator grilles and car interiors are design cues that Breitling have enjoyed adding into the designs, as well as using original varnish colours for the dials. The Breitling for Bentley BO5 Unitime watch collection is recognized for its user-friendly design and sophisticated chronograph, powered via an in-house manufactured movement with patented mechanism. The 24 city bezel includes a daylight saving time feature (DST), whilst the dial of these watches is stamped and raised with an artful depiction of the world – a nod to the watch's globetrotting aspirations.
Breitling for Bentley BO5 Unitime watches are fitted with the independently developed BO5 movement which promises 28,800 vibrations per hour and a 70 hour power reserve. Owning a timepiece that runs on an in-house manufactured movement is a feature that many watch connoisseurs will seek after in a luuxury wristwatch. What’s more, when the watch is equipped with a glass bottom, as in the instance of the BO5 Unitime watches, the wearer can experience the finely tuned components of the movement working in complete synergy with one another, simply by turning the watch over to its underside. The oscillating weight shaped like a wheel rim can be viewed through this transparent window, along with other hand finished parts that have been decorated by a meticulous hand.
By pulling out the crown and turning it in either direction, the time can be adjusted via hourly increments to change timezones, whilst the date window stays at current time. Those gentlemen in search of a timepiece that promises clarity and legibility, even in low-light conditions, will be impressed by the watch’s ability to impart the time thanks to luminous filled central hands and hour markers which keep the design of the dial restrained and to-the-point when needed. Of course, watches from the Breitling for Bentley collection aren't shy of attracting attention. Their bold cases span a diameter of 49mm across the wrist and have been crafted from steel or red gold. The dials offer a choice of black, white or blue and the straps can be configured to suit the wearer’s tastes and needs. Whilst rubber straps offer a somewhat sporty edge to the design, they also double up as an ultra-comfortable alternative to metal bracelets. If wanting to use the chronograph dials for measuring personal bests, a Breitling for Bentley BO5 Unitime watch with rubber strap is perfect for wearing whilst out on a morning jog or to the gym. The leather strap options make the Breitling for Bentley BO5 Unitime watch look casual and understated. Perfect for socialising with or attending work conferences in style.
