Breitling’s latest creation – the Breitling for Bentley Supersports Light Body – will have its world public debut at the upcoming Baselworld 2011 Watch Show. The sport-themed watch is offered in a very limited edition.
The watch is likely to be about 45mm (1.77 inch) wide and will feature an automatic COSC Chronometer certified chronograph movement inside. Its sportiness comes from the red and black motif of the dial, as well as the black rubber strap.
This watch will also use a rotating slide rule bezel. Juha Kankkunen had the Breitling for Bentley Supersports Light Body chronograph wristwatch on when he recently set a new world speed record on ice with a version of the Bentley Continental GTC Supersports. Kankkunen drove the car at 205.48 mph (330.695 km/h), breaking the record that was set by Bentley with a Continental GT in 2007.
