On Baselworld 2014 we had a look at the Breitling Bentley GMT Light Body. The Bentley GMT Light Body has an in-house made movement from Breitling named B04. You love it or hate it!
The huge 49 mm case of the watch is made of titanium and has a revolutionary dual timezone adjustment system. Based on the B04 high-performance Manufacture Breitling Calibre, entirely developed and produced in the Breitling Chronométrie workshops. All the wearer needs to do when juggling with timezones is topull out the crown and turn it forwards or backwards in one-hour increments. This is achieved without any loss of precision in terms of the minutes, while the date is automatically adjusted to local time in either direction. Another appreciable source of comfort on the road stems from the rotating inner bezel bearing the names of 24 cities and enabling at-a-glance readings of all timezones around the world in relation to the one indicated by the 24-hour hand.
The dial bearing, an open worked circular pattern reveals glimpses of the automatic B04 chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).
This authentic wrist sculpture is distinguished by its original and daring design featuring asymmetrical lugs, a black rubber strap, a broad bezel with a knurled motif inspired by Bentley radiator grilles, along with pushpieces built into the ergonomically streamlined profile.
