We recently drove a $500,000 bespoke black Bentley Mulsanne from L.A. to Santa Barbara, nearly causing a six-car pileup in Malibu thanks to all the rubbernecking. The car even had a custom carbon fiber watch roll in its rear console.
The only thing missing was a beautifully badass watch to go with it. Now Bentley has obliged courtesy of Breitling, its longtime horological partner in crime.
The new Breitling for Bentley B05 Unitime Midnight Carbon, priced at $14,765 and limited to just 500 pieces, is a killer chronograph for globe-trotting Bond villain types who need to know exactly what time it is in 24 different cities at any given moment.
The stealthy timepiece, which Breitling describes as "a wrist sculpture", features a black satin-brushed steel case with a high-resistance carbon-based treatment, a black dial with a raised globe motif and newly-developed strap with a tough rubber core and a matte-finish crocodile leather exterior.
It also has a 24-hour disk complete with a day/night indicator with white and black segments, a black signature Bentley knurled bezel, and a transparent caseback displaying the in-house Breitling Caliber B05 movement.
Let's say we meet in Zanzibar at half-past six?
