The Mark VI design of the Breitling for Bentley line pays homage to the spirit of the British brand’s tradition. Representing a variation on this same theme, Breitling has created a timepiece endowed with a mechanical complexity embodying several centuries of precious horological expertise. The new Mark VI Complications 29 is a marvel of miniaturization such as only a few master watchmakers are still capable of creating. This chronograph consists of nearly 500 parts. It has a perpetual calendar programmed to display the date, day, week, month, season and phases of the moon, taking account of leap-year variations. No less than thirteen hands are required to display this information, a task they perform with extreme accuracy, as this highly complex mechanical assembly is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. In keeping with the noble character of this watch, the Mark VI Complications 29 is being issued exclusively in rose gold and platinum, in limited editions of 250 and 100 respectively.

This is a stunning watch. I'd love to see one in the flesh. I've always been a fan of complicated watches, especially perpetual calendars.

However, I would never buy one. I still don't seem to be able to get over the fact that this is a Breitling for Bentley watch and that having a car manufacturer name on the dial (especially one that I will never own) seems a little pointless to me and ruins it a little.

Am I the only one who thinks this?:confused1:

Yup, I'd like to see it too... I bet it's very nice in person.

I agree on owning one though - or lack of owning one.. I don't see myself ever getting one of these, though I wouldn't mind the 6.75.... :thumbup1:
