A fore-bearer to the fictitious “The Most Interesting Man in the World”, Woolf Barnato lived a life of adventure and thrill seeking. Heir to diamond and gold mining fortune, Barnato was an officer in the British Army, a boxer, a horse breeder, a keen business man, and more… But most will know him for his most famous endeavor as one of the “Bentley Boys”. His name lives on today as a part of BREITLING for Bentley timepiece collection, exceptional watches which invoke both racing heritage and an appreciation for the best. But for those looking for something even more rare, there is the new BREITLING for Bentley Barnato 42 Midnight Carbon Chronograph.
Clad in carbon steel, each of the counters within the dial face received a chromed steel rim and red accents as contrast against the black backdrop. Its bezel, along with the intricate finishes on it, are both references to Bentley‘s distinctive front grilles. Full self-winding, the BREITLING for Bentley Barnato 42 Midnight Carbon Chronograph will be limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide.
