The Case

The four-piece stainless steel case is fully brushed save for polished accents on the bezel and lugs. Fitted with a sapphire crystal featuring anti-reflective coating, it has a screwed-down crown. The watch is water-resistant to 10 ATM. The case is 43mm in diameter, has a thickness of 13mm and measures 22mm between the lugs.

The Case Back & Movement

The circular-brushed, screwed-down case back is adorned with a depiction of a 1930s vintage Bentley racing car at its centre, acid etched into the steel. The modified 11 ½ ligne calibre VB - 24A automatic movement features 26 jewels, perlage and blued screws. Other highlights include a Glucydur balance, an Anachron balance spring and a Nivaflex 1 mainspring. The balance has a frequency of 28,800 bph and features a 38-hour power reserve and a skeletonised, decorated rotor. The movement is suspended in a ring of mu-metal which helps protect it from excessive magnetic forces.

My Inspiration

The Bentley Racer collection transports you to the thrilling and competitive world of early British motor racing, with a nostalgic nod to the legendary Brooklands race track. It expertly captures the essence of the high-stakes Double Twelve and harks back to the elegant vintage Bentleys that gracefully competed during the 1920s and 1930s. Every timepiece in the collection embodies a unique narrative, with each watch taking its name from a fabled British racing car number. This attention to detail effortlessly evokes fond memories of a bygone era, encapsulating the glory of wheel-to-wheel action while paying homage to Britain's rich automotive heritage and the captivating splendour of classic motorsport.
