Exotic cars and fine handcrafted timepieces complement each other in a similar way that salt and pepper do. They just work. In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the exotic automotive industry and even specific vehicles altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular products available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.
Ernst Benz Chronoscope
The timepiece professionals at Ernst Benz are known for creating luxury examples that incorporate state-of-the-art design and movement technology. The brand sticks to the slogan ‘Precision Instruments For Timekeeping’, continuing to develop and manufacture timepieces made in the time-honored tradition of aviation timekeepers and the fine art of watchmaking. Ernst Benz prides itself on offering a large variety of collections dedicated to a specific art of timekeeping while incorporating the ability to configure a piece to each client’s wants and needs. The Chronoscope Collection is one of Ernst Benz’s most iconic models, featuring the complex chronograph layout that ties itself into the automotive and motorsports world. With a true luxury look and feel, the Ernst Benz Chronoscope pairs perfectly with the performance-focused Bentley Continental GT Speed. The two luxury products share similarities in design, styling, technology, and performance.
The ChronoScope 47mm honors the tradition of the authentic aviation timepieces and great wrist timers worn by pilots in the 1940’s. As a highly functional and reliable timekeeper, it features a chronograph mechanism enabling it to calculate the duration of an event in elapsed time. Available in 47mm, 44mm, and 40mm, the Chronoscope is presented in brushed stainless steel and features a slate dial with green luminous numerals. The dial design perfectly displays the hours, minutes, seconds, day, and date functions, making it the perfect everyday watch for any collector or enthusiast. Featuring the renowned automatic Valjoux 7750, considered to be one of the world’s finest self-winding chronograph movements, the Chronoscope measures elapsed time in seconds, minutes and hours, while also displaying the day and date. The state-of-the-art movement provides a lengthy 42-hour power reserve and can withstand a 50-meter water resistance. The beauty continues to the transparent backcase, where the inner workings of the movement are in focus beneath a crystal clear sapphire. The theme of luxury craftsmanship is complete with the available option to add an Ernst Benz genuine alligator leather strap or stainless-steel bracelet, making the piece even more versatile as the Bentley Continental GT Speed. The elegantly aggressive styling of the Ernst Benz Chronoscope perfectly pairs with the British luxury supercar.

Bentley Continental GT Speed
The Bentley brand embodies a premium sense of luxury within its fleet of vehicles, using design and performance to highlight its meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. Following a similar manufacturing structure as Ernst Benz, the British automotive manufacturer focuses on catering to clientele to provide a one-of-a-kind experience when configuring any model. The most iconic chassis in the Bentley fleet is the Continental, a vehicle that perfectly highlights a modern luxury driving experience with industry-leading performance and technology. The new Bentley Continental GT Speed is the perfect match for the Ernst Benz Chronoscope timepiece.
The Continental GT Speed is the most dynamic road car in Bentley’s 101-year history and ultimate performance-focused interpretation of the world’s benchmark luxury Grand Tourer. Designed, engineered, developed, and handcrafted in Bentley’s carbon-neutral luxury automotive factory, this new third-generation model builds on a long tradition of Speed variants. Originally introduced with the highly-acclaimed, first-generation Continental GT Speed in 2007 – itself inspired by the 3-Litre Speed models of the 1920s. The latest GT Speed continues the bloodline by representing the ultimate combination of luxury and performance in a Grand Touring package. The new GT Speed is the ultimate performance-focused expression of Bentley’s definitive Grand Tourer, yet maintains the luxury, comfort, and usability of its siblings. It is equipped with an uprated version of Bentley’s renowned 6.0-liter W12 TSI engine, delivering 650 bhp whilst maintaining an extraordinary 664 lb. ft of torque. With exceptional handling, this results in a top speed of 208 mph and 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Alongside its track-oriented performance, the Bentley Continental GT Speed also offers a one-of-a-kind configuration experience for owners, allowing each chassis the ability to be designed to match the intended owner’s personality and lifestyle perfectly.
Why To Buy
The Bentley Continental GT Speed is the best addition to any garage because of its versatility as a luxury and performance supercar. Designed as an aggressively modest body style, the Continental GT Speed is incognito for most but a head-turning example for any automotive enthusiasts. The configuration process allows each new owner to incorporate their own vision when ordering a Continental GT Speed, making each build limitless.
