A good model to represent the collection is this replica Breitling Bentley GMT watch. Let me first say that this is a big watch. I like big watches, but this one is for large wrists only. The case is 49mm wide with a very large lug structure. This heavy timepiece will over-power smaller wrists with its size. It comes in 18k red gold or steel on a rubber strap or steel bracelet.

Inside the watch is a Breitling caliber 47B base Swiss ETA automatic chronograph movement. The movement has been expanded with a GMT complication module. Functions include the time, date, 12 hour chronograph, and 24 hour second time zone hand. Using the fixed flange ring city indicators you can also tell the time all over the world. The movement is further tested and given a COSC Chronometer certificate for accuracy
