Bentley, Breitling look back at key collaborations as 19-year partnership ends

Breitling Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition

Swiss watch brand Breitling and British luxury carmaker Bentley have been working together for 19 years, said to be the longest-serving partnership between a watch brand and a car manufacturer. The partnership began in 2002, when the two brands came together to design the onboard clock for the first Continental GT.

Following this, the partnership has created some of the most notable watches in Breitling’s history.

The Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition, produced in an exclusive series of 25 pieces, will be equally as memorable as it represents the final collaboration between the two brands.

With the release of the Tourbillon, Bentley and Breitling announced that "they will be parting ways at the end of 2021, remaining firm friends, having shared many experiences and achievements together."

Some of the most memorable collaborations between the two brands include: the Breitling Bentley Supersports Light Body watch, the Breitling Bentley GT3 Limited Edition, the Bentayga dashboard Tourbillon clock, the Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series, the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green, and the Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition.

In April 2021, the new Breitling Premier B21 Chronograph Tourbillon 42 Bentley Limited Edition joined those other collaborations. The last example of the timepiece has now been finished and will soon be enjoyed by its new owner.

Bentley Motors Chairman and CEO Adrian Hallmark commented: “The long-standing collaboration between Bentley and Breitling demonstrated that when two like-minded brands work together authentically, the performance of both is enhanced. We look back on the past two decades with great affection and send our warmest best wishes to the Breitling team for the future.”
