The model Flying B No. 3 is a wristwatch by Breitling in the series Breitling for Bentley.

This model is somewhat smaller in its dimensions than the Flying B. Thanks to the completely redesigned dial, it shows a completely different face. It is equipped with a carefully beveled sapphire crystal with anti-glare treatment on both sides. The hour indexes are set with mother of pearl and the Roman numeral XII forms a "radiant" decor around the knurled center. The two big hands make for a striking appearance of the hours and minutes, while the small seconds turn their rounds on a small, recessed square dial. The big date appears in a clearly legible fine cut double window.

At the heart of this watch beats the new Breitling Calibre 16B, which, like all Breitling movements, is officially COSC-certified as chronometer. The Flying B No. 3 is available in stainless steel or red or white gold.
