Well, not really "finally" because this new limited edition watch is based on the last year's Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green model. The correct title would sound like "That's Why This New Breitling Premier Bentley Centenary Limited Edition Chronograph is One More Chance to Get Yourself a Bentley Watch You Can Wear," yet it would be too long (and too clickbaity,) so, please, forgive me this attempt at sensationalism.
Created in collaboration with MR PORTER, one of their major partners that sells all things luxury, the new Breitling Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 is limited to just 1000 pieces, packs a great in-house chronograph caliber, and, as real estate agents like to say, is priced to sell in a market over-saturated with equally elegant pilot's watches produced by well-established brands like Omega and IWC.

The new Breitling for Bentley Supersports B55 Connected offers you the same list of amenities as their earlier "hybrid" smart watches that was first revealed about two years ago, but in a styling that is so loved by thousands of Bentley fans. Reassuringly overpriced and deliciously archaic, it will probably feature one of the lowest "value for money" ratios in the Swiss watchmaker's whole product range, yet it's not the mythical "value" that allows Breitling to continue being one of the brands for those who love deadly planes and fast cars.
If you noticed the sporty Chronoliner collection from last year, but decided to pass on it for the lack of bling, this new 2016 Breitling Chronoliner Triple Time-Zone Chronograph limited edition model will make you want to reconsider. Preserving the same energetic (some may even call it assertive) styling of the original, the new watch comes in a lot dressier rose gold case that, thanks to careful balancing the mix of materials and textures somehow manages not to look too arrogant in all of its polished rose gold and glossy ceramic glory.
Based on one of their earlier Supersports models, the new Breitling for Bentley GT3 (ref. V273655S/BE14/233S/V20DSA.2) automatic chronograph delivers the traditional mix of daring exterior styling and a fairly impressive price tag. The only thing that it lacks is an in-house caliber, but for those not really interested about the model's guts and more concerned about looks and brand value its modified ETA movement may even be a better choice.

It's hard to believe, but professional-looking Aerospace line is here for whole three decades! Celebrating the anniversary, the Swiss watchmaking specialist has recently introduced a new limited edition Breitling Aerospace Evo Night Mission chronograph wristwatch. With a total production run limited to mere 300 pieces and a new color of the dial that nicely accents its almost black satin-brushed body, the new model will probably be sold out in no time even despite its impressive price.

The new Breitling Superocean II 36 Diver sports the usual styling that the series is known for. Basically offering the same men's watch in a slightly smaller size, the timekeeper won't surprise you with new ideas, but will rather deliver the usual blend of sportiness, good build quality and a bullet-proof (albeit, mass produced) mechanism that will keep time as you would expect from a COSC-certified movement. What else there is to want?
The new 2015 Breitling Galactic Unitime SleekT 44 may be not as technically advanced as a GPS-capable Seiko Astron, yet it clearly has mojo similar to the Swiss brand's most iconic pilot's watches issued in the 1950s. What is even more surprising is that all this mojo trickles out of this beautiful timekeeper in a subtle, deliciously refined way: something that we have rarely seen from Breitling during the last decade or two.

With its refreshed Breitling Colt 36 SuperQuartz model, the Swiss brand finally notices the demographics targeted by Dove's Real Beauty campaign that began more than a decade ago. Designed with slightly larger wrists in mind, the new Colt 36 may be a bit too large for a skinnier type of girls that French fashion houses seem to love so much, but, come on, let's celebrate some diversity here!
The new Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915 (ref. AB141112/G799-154A) is a wristwatch that nicely mixes its modern design language with visual elements from models dating back to as many as hundred years ago. While some of these elements (or rather the way they are mixed together) look a bit controversial, this new variety seems like a very nice offer for a person who finds their signature models like Navitimer and Chronomat a bit too arrogant and tasteless for a person of good taste.
