ISR. Ice Speed Record. On February 18th 2011, in the north of Finland, a special version of the Bentley Continental GTC Supersports convertible set a new ice speed record at 205.46 mph (330.695 km/h). In thereby testing its fastest and most reliable car ever in such extreme conditions, Bentley once again proved its supremacy in terms of technology and engine performance. Strapped firmly to the wrist of driver Juha Kankkunen was the new Bentley Supersports Light Body. In tribute to this milestone in automobile history, Breitling for Bentley has created a limited edition of the watch that was part of the record-breaking achievement and named it Bentley Supersports ISR. Embodying a blend of British chic and Swiss expertise, this high-performance chronograph is distinguished by its light and sturdy titanium chassis, its red-accented dashboard-style carbon fiber dial and its raised knurled bezel reflecting the style of Bentley control buttons. Its selfwinding “motor” chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) drives a highly ingenious double-counter system and a twin-handed totalizer serving to read off the elapsed hours and minutes at a glance, just as one reads the time on a watch. Issued in a 100-piece limited series, this commemorative watch will be exclusively available to the one hundred privileged purchasers of the Continental Supersports Convertible ISR – the commemorative edition celebrating the original car that accomplished the record-breaking feat, and of which the outline is engraved on the watch caseback.
A VIBRANTLY COLOURFUL LIMITED SERIES
Breitling lines up on the starting grid a 3 x 1,000-piece limited series of the Bentley Supersports chronograph, with a “dashboard-style” dial enlivened by blue, orange or white-ringed counters and inner bezels. Clearly built for outstanding feats and performances, this exceptional watch is a fresh tribute to the Bentley Continental Supersports, the fastest and most powerful car ever made by the British manufacturer, and holder of the world ice speed record. A superchronograph for a supercar.
Inside its sporty, sturdy and elegant chassis, the Bentley Supersports limited series houses a selfwinding chronograph movement chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). It is equipped with an original and extremely practical central-hand 60-minute counter. The rotating bezel serving to activate the variable tachometer – an exclusive Breitling feature enabling measurement of average speed whatever the time elapsed, the distance covered or the speed reached – is adorned with the knurled motif typical of Bentley dashboard controls.
