If you want a watch that will stop admirers in the tracks, try the special all-white “Ice” versions of the Bentley GT and Bentley GT Racing chronographs on for size.

A few weeks ago, Bentley and their timepiece partner, Breitling, launched the limited edition “Breitling for Bentley” Supersports Light Body watch in tribute to a new ice speed record (it was set by four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen in a Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible). These special all-white “Ice” versions are compact, which makes them suitable to wear no matter what size of wrist you have.  Both versions boast an Ice White dial, an exclusive Bentley livery color and a rubber strap. They also come with a self-winding Breitling Calibre 13B chronograph movement and a calendar displaying the day and date through a large twin aperture.

Other embellishments found on these timepieces include rimmed counters that enhance the dials of the watches, and a bezel that features a knurled motif. The Bentley GT Ice chronograph is adorned with a steel case with an all-polished finish, while the Bentley GT Racing Ice version features alternating satin-brushed upper surfaces and polished sides. On the caseback, you’ll find a medallion that’s stamped with the outline of the Bentley Continental GT.

The Bentley GT Ice and Bentley GT Racing Ice watches will set you back $7,165 each. A small price to pay to secure your status has a fashion plate, we think.
