  • After just under two decades, Breitling and Bentley represent the longest-standing luxury automotive and watch partnership globally
  • As the making of the last Bentley Breitling Tourbillon is complete, the two brands look back on their best-in-class union and significant shared achievements
  • Bentley and Breitling began their partnership in 2002, as Bentley was designing the iconic Continental GT and its signature onboard Breitling clock
  • As the two brands part ways, they celebrate 19 years of extraordinary wristwatches, in-cabin clocks, events and experiences

(Crewe, 3 August 2021) Swiss watch brand Breitling and British luxury car maker Bentley have been working together for 19 years, the longest ever serving partnership between a watch brand and a luxury car manufacturer. The partnership began in 2002, when Bentley and Breitling came together to design the onboard clock for the first ever Bentley Continental GT, which was debuted in 2003. Following this, the partnership has created some of the most notable watches in Breitling’s history. The last Bentley Breitling Tourbillon now leaves the factory – set to be an iconic collectors’ timepiece for generations to come – and representing the final collaboration between the two brands.

For the past two decades, Bentley and Breitling have collaboratively achieved extraordinary levels of luxury for their customers. Today, they announce 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 launched, joining a range of other collaborations between the two brands. The last piece of this most recent timepiece has now been finished and will soon be enjoyed by its new owner.

Adrian Hallmark, Bentley Motors’ Chairman and CEO 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.”
