Description

{Breitling Bentley Barnato Racing A25366} Named after Woolf Barnato, the most famous of the Bentley Boys who distinguished themselves in automobile competitions during the 1920s, the Bentley Barnato lines up on the starting grid with a number of assets. A resolutely sporting appearance accentuated by red-accented counters and an inner bezel bearing a tachometer scale. A pure aesthetic enhanced by a bezel with a raised knurled motif. An efficient and reliable movement, officially chronometer -certified by the COSC and equipped with the exclusive “30-second chronograph” mechanism enabling highly precise readings accurate to the nearest 1/8th of a second. In another bold and original feature, on the Bentley Barnato Racing, the pointer-type totalizers are replaced by disc-typecounters featuring an openworked shape reminiscent of the steering wheels on the famous Bentley speed machines that won the Le Mans 24 Hours race five times between 1924 and 1930. With its roots firmly planted in automotive and horological history, this watch is indeed, a modern classic!
