The development and manufacturing of high-quality chronographs in a sense forms the DNA of Breitling.

Already in the 1930ies, the first chronographs were manufactured in the Breitling manufactory showing the typical chronograph design with the two pushers on both sides of the crown. With Breitling for Bentley the brand that has ever focused on pilots and other watch fans enthusiastic for aviation has launched series such as B04 GMT or Flying B Chronograph which are mainly directed to motorsports enthusiasts with an exclusive lifestyle. It combines the highest Swiss watchmaking art and automobile excellency in the luxury segment in a congenial way. The model Barnato 42 is an especially elegant representative of this collection.
Barnato 42: homage to the great "Bentley Boys"
Bentley's reputation as exclusive car brand was decisively co-founded in the 1920ies by some young men from highest social circles who competed in countless races with their Bentleys. One of them was Woolf Barnato who did not only invest a part of his considerable assets in the automobile company but also took over the managing directorship as majority shareholder and himself set numerous records and racing successes. He won the legendary 24-hours of Le Mans three times and was the only driver who could crown each of his participations with a victory. He also caused great sensation in March in 1930 when he bet to beat the Train Bleu in a race, which is a luxury train from Cannes to London, although his chances were assessed to be very low. In honor of Barnato this chronograph of the collection Breitling for Bentley got its name; the 42 indicates the case diameter in millimeters. The special elegance of the Barnato 42 is thanked to the dial which is more simple and with less scales than several sister models and easier to read at first glance. On top of this, the case of the Barnato 42 is a bit smaller than with the other models from the collection so that this watch can certainly be worn at formal occasions or with a suit.
