Introduced in 2005, the Breitling Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon Chronograph is an extraordinary timepiece that combines technology and tradition. The Mulliner Tourbillon Chronograph is also a rare and indeed extremely rare model as only a few are produced each year.
Behind closed doors at the Bentley factory’s prestigious Mulliner workshop, more than a hundred craftsmen and technicians have gone to great lengths to meet the most specific wishes of Bentley owners.
While exclusivity comes at a price, it also comes with its perks, as each Mulliner tourbillon is custom-made by its future owner. Depending on his personal preference, he can choose the case type – platinum or yellow gold, rose or white gold – the dial color or the exact color of the alligator strap. Even the precious wood trim on the back of the watch is available in six finishes.
This masterpiece also features a remarkable heart, the hand-wound Breitling Calibre 18B, a tourbillon chronograph movement exclusive to Breitling for Bentley. The tourbillon is a complex mechanism that constitutes one of the most ingenious mechanical watch complications: the balance, hairspring and escapement are contained in a carriage that rotates around its axis, a structure that compensates for the occurrence of the watch while it is running. rate change. a vertical position.
That’s not the only feature of the device: its “30-second” type chronograph features a central hand that revolves around the dial for half a minute instead of the usual 60 seconds; this apparently surprising configuration can be done in fractions of a second Achieve extremely accurate readings, in this case 1/6 of a second. It also features a 15-minute totalizer and an analog date display.
Every car produced in the Mulliner workshop is unique…and so is every Mulliner tourbillon watch, ensuring that its owner never sees the exact same wholesale replica watch. Each hour-marker on the dial is made from natural, handcrafted mother-of-pearl.
Literally and figuratively, each Mulliner tourbillon carries the logo of its owner, including his initials engraved on one of the movement bridges. Protected by sapphire crystal, this precious wooden ring is available in the same shades and finishes as the Bentley Mulliner trim: Raw Walnut, Dark Raw Walnut, Madrona, Birds Eye Maple, Raw Oak, Olive Grey .
The countless ways to personalize the Mulliner Tourbillon Chronograph are directly inspired by those offered at the Bentley Mulliner workshop in Crewe.
