Just as its name suggests, Breitling for Bentley GMT Midnight Carbon is a pitch-black timekeeper with a powerful presence. The “Midnight Carbon” part of the watch’s name comes from the fact that this timekeeper has a case and a knurled bezel forged from powerful looking black steel, the material that was created after the steel was treated with an exceptionally resistant carbon-based coating. Other aesthetic details that define the appearance of the 1/8th of a second automatic chronograph are its black dial and rubber strap which is attached to the case with asymmetric lugs. The watch from the limited edition of Breitling for Bentley range includes a GMT function, or in other words, it has a central hand that completes the full revolution in 24 hours while pointing on the appropriate hour scale on the edge of the dial. This hand, which is in red color, is set to GMT time, and it can be used to tell the time in the major cities of the world with the use of a rotational pinion bezel with city markings.
Breitling SA was founded in Saint-Imier, Bernese Jura by Léon Breitling in 1884.When Léon Breitling died in 1914, the business passed to his son, Gaston, and then to his son, Willy, in 1935. Willy’s children were not interested in pursuing the family business, so the Breitling factory in La Chaux de Fonds closed in December 1978. Willy, already in poor health, died in May 1979.
Ernst Schneider, owner of the Sicura Company in Grenchen, bought the Breitling name from the founding Breitling family in 1979. Production of “Breitling” watches then moved to the Sicura factory, which later changed its name to Montres Breitling AG and then Breitling AG in 1994. The Schneider family retained ownership until April 2017. Ernst’s son, Theodore Schneider, sold the majority stake (80%) in Breitling to CVC Capital Partners for over $870m. Theodore Schneider retained 20% control of Breitling until November 2018, when he sold these remaining 20% to CVC. Historically, Breitling sourced movements from suppliers such as Valjoux, ETA, and Venus rather than producing movements in-house. In 2009 Breitling developed the B01, an in-house self-winding, column wheel chronograph movement, used in the Breitling Chronomat 01 and subsequently Navitimer 01
