Smart and Savvy
Breitling for Bentley Supersports B55 marries the best functions of a smartwatch with the appearance and design of an analog model. Limited to just 500 pieces, the watch boasts a 46 mm blacked-out titanium case with glare-proof sapphire crystal framed by a carbon fiber bezel that’s engraved with the same diamond-cut design found on the seats of the Bentley Continental Supersports. Once paired to a smartphone, users can sync a number of functions that were curated specifically for racing enthusiasts. Starting at $7,785; breitlingforbentley.com
Time to Fly
The Porsche 1919 Chronotimer Flyback was inspired by the timeless lines of the Porsche 911 Carrera, which has been the icon of the brand since the model’s inception. The magic of this timepiece is the COSC-certified Porsche Design Werk 01.200 movement, which was created in-house and features 25 jewels visible through the sapphire glass. The titanium casing is water-resistant up to 10 bar and held in place by a hand-stitched calfskin leather strap. Starting at $6,350; porsche-design.us
The Aston Martin TAG Heuer Carrera pays respect to the British automaker by evoking the speed and elegance of the new Aston Martin Vantage. Sapphire glass adorns the front skeletonized dial, as well as the engraved caseback, which is water-resistant up to 100 meters. The chronograph is powered by the Caliber Heuer 01 automatic movement and is finished in a 45 mm stainless steel PVD black case. Starting at $6,550; tagheuer.com
