Breitling to unveil “Ice” versions of Bentley GT chronographs at Baselworld

Breitling will present special all-white “Ice” versions of the Bentley GT and Bentley GT Racing chronographs at Baselworld 2011. These chronographs can fit any wrist size as these are more compact than the other Breitling for Bentley models.

They also offer a more distinctive and instantly recognizable appearance. The Ice White dial (an exclusive Bentley livery color) is complemented with a rubber strap in the same shade. These dials, highlighted by rimmed counters, are reminiscent of the dashboards of Bentley Grand Tourers.

The bezel with its knurled motif is inspired by the marque’s control buttons, says WatchTime. The “chassis” of the Bentley GT Ice chronograph has a steel case with an all-polished finish. The Bentley GT Racing Ice version stands out with its finishes that alternate between satin-brushed upper surfaces and polished sides.

Its caseback carries a medallion with the outline of the Bentley Continental GT, a quintessential powerful grand tourer. The watches are equipped with the selfwinding Breitling Calibre 13B chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC. They also feature a calendar that displays the day and date through a big twin aperture at 3 o’clock. The Bentley GT Ice and Bentley GT Racing Ice each have a price tag of $7,165.
