Breitling Bentley Phantom Watch

This year Breitling changes the name of its Bentley Diavolo watch to the "Bentley Phantom." I can't say why that is, but I suspect it has to do with conservative types who take issue with the fact that a watch is called "devil." That is the watch industry for you... What else has changed? Well the Diavolo was previously offered only in 18k white gold, and now we have it in 18k rose gold. Still probably one of the coolest tourbillon watches available when you want something that's not standard fare. The Replica Breitling Navitimer is an extremely important watch in the modern luxury watch landscape. Breitling defied much of the industry when it was released in the early 2000s with a movement that used many silicon parts - it was the first. Since then even the most conservative brands such as Breguet and Patek Philippe have decided that silicon (silicium) parts are indeed an upgrade in many instances when it comes to increasing the performance and longevity of a mechanical watch. Today Breitling makes both a tourbillon and standard version of the Bentley, and it continues to be such cool timepieces. In the past we offered a full Replica Hublot Big Bang King Watch review of the Breitling Bentley Diavolo here. It was a very positive experience because the Bentley deliciously retains the utility and interest of a luxury watch while at the same time being something totally different. How? Well the watch has no crown, uses much of the movement as the minute hand, and somehow seems to be weird yet wonderful at the same time. There is a little tab under 6 o'clock that you lift up while turning the bezel to adjust the time. To wind the Bentley you turn the case back. There is even an open window for the large mainspring barrel which allows you to see how tightly wound it is. Fully wound, the Bentley has eight days of power reserve. What the Bentley Diavolo, now Phantom adds to the mix is a tourbillon. Where the escapement is normally placed on the Bentley, the Bentley Phantom has a tourbillon. This is at the non-indicating end of the minute hand. To technically describe it, it is a sort of tourbillon placed in a secondary orbiting carousel-style tourbillon as the entire system moves... as it is part of the minute hand. The Phantom's tourbillon is flying, and uses a sapphire crystal indicator plate for the seconds, which is attractively done.
