Bentley is celebrating its new frozen ice land speed record with the new Breitling for Bentley. The new watch is actually a replica designed after the Breitling worn by the record setting and extremely badass driver Juha Kankkunen.

Kankkunen braved temperatures of up to -30 Fahrenheit and the unsure ice of the Baltic Sea to set the new ice land speed record. Fortunately you will have to do none of those things to get your hands on the Breitling for Bentley.
