Breitling offering up the Supersports B55 replica watch – a limited-edition smartwatch of sorts built with Breitling’s proprietary Connected technology and featuring a suite of functions designed specifically for drivers. Presumably, that will mean those at the helm of this 700-horsepower coupe which also happens to top out at an eye-watering 209 miles per hour.
Like the Bentley from which this particular Breitling owes its namesake, the Breitling Bentley Supersports B55 is hardly subtle. It’s built with a 46mm titanium case that’s water-resistant to 100m and fitted to a thick rubber strap – similar in spec to 2015’s Exospace, but re-skinned to match the design language in the Breitling Replica Watches UK Bentley universe. This includes a woven carbon fiber dial and the textured hobnail bezel – a detail that’s become something of an ongoing signature for the partnership.
While the Exospace B55 had a suite of timekeeping features designed specifically for the cockpit, the Breitling Bentley Supersports B55 replica swiss movement is going to be most useful on the track, as it’s equipped with a flyback chronograph, lap timer, and a special electronic tachymeter. In addition, its chronograph goes a few layers deeper with its “chrono rally” function, which records up to 30 rally stages complete with departure dates, start times, and stage durations. There’s also a “regularity rally” chronograph function, which a rally driver could use to determine how much distance they’d traveled in a given amount of time, and thusly whether or not he or she were on, ahead, or behind schedule.
It was only a matter of time that breitling swiss replica expanded its Connected technology to another offering in the catalog, but the semi-exclusivity of the Bentley collaboration for the first follow-up is, at best, an odd choice. Perhaps the Superocean Connected, with dive memory, ascent alarms or surface interval timekeeping would have been a more natural choice? Maybe we just need to be more patient.
