World travelers will appreciate the Breitling for Bentley B04 GMT, which combines a chronograph with an easy-to-use dual-time-zone indicator. To adjust the main hour hand to the local time, the user simply pulls out the crown and and turns it in either direction in one-hour increments, without causing any loss of precision in the minutes hand; the date also moves backward and forward automatically as the local time zone changes. In the meantime, the red-tipped GMT hand indicates the time in the wearer’s home time zone on a 24-hour scale, thus making it simple to determine whether it is day or night. The Bentley B04 GMT is available in the same varieties as the B06: rose gold gold or steel case, ebony or silver dial, and with strap or bracelet.

Like its predecessor in Breitling’s Transocean collection, the new Breitling for Bentley B05 Unitime complements its chronograph with a user-friendly world-time function. The B05 movement has a patented double-disk system, which allows the user to change the local timezone by turning the crown backward or forward in one-hour increments, which also automatically adjusts the date. The 24-city bezel, which allows the user to see the time in all 24 major world time zones simultaneously, also includes indications for “summer” or Daylight Savings Time (DST). The Bentley B05 Unitime features a Royal Ebony (black) or Arctica (white) dial with an elegantly rendered globe motif, and is available in either rose gold or steel and on leather or rubber straps or a steel bracelet.
