Back to black: Bentley B05 Unitime Midnight Carbon returns to the Middle East

Designed for those who make travel an art of living, Swiss luxury watchmaker and aviation chronograph specialist, Breitling has announced the arrival of a limited edition to the most cosmopolitan model in the Breitling for Bentley collection - the Bentley B05 Unitime Midnight Carbon. After steel and red gold, Breitling has introduced this chronograph as a one-off in a striking black satin-brushed steel case. The unique effect has been achieved by using a high-resistance carbon-based treatment and is paired with a black dial with a raised globe motif and a brand-new strap, combining a rubber core and a matt crocodile leather exterior.

The 500-piece limited series offers a combination of sportiness and classy elegance for this world time chronograph, equipped with an innovative Manufacture Breitling movement, featuring a mechanism protected by two patents.

Commenting on the model's arrival to the region, Aed Adwan, Breitling Middle East said: "This chronograph is equipped with a double-disk system allowing the user easy, completely precise timekeeping across 24 time zones. Functionality is key in all Breitling models and when the user changes time zone, all they need to do is turn the crown forwards or backwards in one-hour increments to correct all indications in one smooth move - including automatic adjustment of the date to local time without any loss of precision."

Adwan continued: "Additional user-friendly features include a 24-hour disk complete with a day/night indicator with white and black segments, while the 24-city disk takes account of summer/daylight saving time (DST)."  

Visually echoing the black ‘bodywork' and dial, this exclusive engine is equipped with a highly original wheel rim-shaped black oscillating weight visible through a transparent case back. Like all Breitling movements, the new model is chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), the only precision and reliability benchmark based on an international norm.
