Steampunk for those of you who don’t know (we didn’t!) is, according to good old Wikipedia, a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialised Western civilisation during the 19th century.
In other words, it’s a very interesting form of art that gives a classic look to products and gives them a very unique design.
The Black Widow here is designed by Solifague Design and is an awesome custom chopper. This will most certainly turn heads and if you are into your bikes, you won’t see many of these about.
As a tribute to the biggest Bentley engine, the famous 6.75 litre version powering the luxurious Mulsanne limousines, the Bentley 6.75 chronograph from Breitling ramps up the power and the audacity in an entirely black-clad limited series.
This midnight-hued livery, achieved by a special ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment, enhances the sporting style of the satin-brushed steel case with its taut, dynamic lines and its knurled bezel inspired by Bentley’s famous radiator grilles.
The dial also exudes dark elegance, enhanced by a vertical open-worked motif offering a glimpse of the movement.
The caseback springs its own surprise, since the five-spoke motif reprising the distinctive design of Bentley wheel rims also appears in black against the metallic background. The selfwinding chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), is distinguished by its original “large aperture calendar” system displaying the date in a highly readable manner via two distinct indicators: one for the tens and the other for the units.
Issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, the Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon comes on a rubber strap with a central raised motif echoing that of the bezel. Sheer class, clad in black and signed Breitling for Bentley.
