Info

Mulliner: for connoisseurs of beautiful cars, the name of this Bentley workshop stands for absolute luxury. In this temple of exclusivity, a hundred or so artisans and technicians craft metal, wood and leather so as to fulfil Bentley owners’ every desire.

Tourbillon: for devotees of complicated watches, this sophisticated mechanism represents a pinnacle of the watchmaking art. Stemming from the encounter between two traditions of excellence, the Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon chronograph is produced at a rate of just a few units per year, and may be entirely customised according to the wishes of its future owner.

The latter may choose the case material (platinum, yellow gold, rose gold or white gold), the colour of the dial enhanced by mother of pearl hour-markers, and the shade of the crocodile leather strap – along with the precious wooden ring on the caseback, offered in a choice of six veneers. This watchmaking masterpiece houses a hand-wound chronograph movement exclusive to Breitling for Bentley and officially chronometer-certified by the COSC. It is also equipped with an original “30-second chronograph” system and a pointer-type date display.
