Keeping time with meridiansBASELWORLD 2013: The Breitling for Bentley B04 GMT
A watch for businessmen as well as all those with a taste for accomplishments who live and communicate across all longitudes, the new Bentley B04 GMT stands out for its extremely functional dual timezone system, combined with a highperformance selfwinding chronograph.
Beneath the radiator grille of its finely openworked black or silver dial beats a Manufacture Breitling movement developed with all the skill and knowledge lavished on the finest engines and officially chronometer-certified by the COSC. To adjust the main hour hand to local time, the user can simply pull out the crown and turn it in either direction in one-hour increments. This is achieved without any loss of precision in terms of the minutes, and with automatic forward and backward date adjustment. Meanwhile, the red-tipped hand continues to show home time in 24-hour mode, thus enabling the user to distinguish between day and night.
The Bentley B04 GMT expresses its powerful aesthetic in steel or red gold models, complete with a transparent caseback revealing a sculpted wheel rim-shaped oscillating weight.
