Bentley Breitling Watches Hands-On

It would not be fair to replica breitling Chronomat 41 not to have a chronograph in the Breitling collection. That is where the Breitling Penta pieces come in. With a big date and tri-compax array chronograph, these movements just scream "Bentley." Furthering the skeletonized dial concept, the Penta watches have very open dials. How do you feel about the very visible big date indicator discs? Aside from the central seconds hand for the chronograph, this model uses moving discs in relation to red arrows to indicate the information on the subdials. It takes a bit of getting used to but makes for fun timepieces. These replica breitling Bentley Barnato Penta watches are also 45.5mm wide and available in mixtures of steel, titanium, and gold. They are mostly limited to 201 watches each. A very interesting Bentley Breitling http://www.speedroc.com/replica-breitling-bentley-gt-racing.html model is called the Breitling Rendezvous. This watch combines an alarm and minute repeater combination. The result is an alarm that plays a chiming noise (using a bell and gongs) when "it is time." The watch dial has a lot going on, plus it is skeletonized. I think that they did however do a good job making it as legible and functional as possible. On the dial of the Breitling Rendezvous you have large hands for the time (with seconds), and alarm indicator hand (to set the alarm), and alarm on/off indicator, a power reserve indicator, the date, and a day/night indicator for the time. To explain the watch better I did a little video for you that should be part of this post. Bentley doesn't actually state the watch as having an alarm. They use the Rendezvous name instead. Part of that has to do wit the fact that the alarm sound isn't very loud - as is the case with most chiming watches that have any type of water resistance. They rather consider the watch as offering a "friendly reminder" versus an alarm. With a 45.5mm wide case (in steel or rose gold) and a special automatic movement, the Breitling Rendezvous is a very unique and interesting watch. It is also limited to 201 pieces per model. I have a feeling that all Bentley limited edition models are limited to 201 pieces. Bentley watches are a fascinating display of boutique Swiss watch brands operated by people who are in the heart of "watch land." There is no big city marketing guy or company who decided to build this brand. This watch is by a guy from a watch making family who has probably lived and breathed watches way more than most of us. While modern and aggressive in its design, the Breitling collection is a piece from a small boutique Swiss brand with very traditional values.
