Breitling adds Top Time Classic Cars range to its core collections

22 March 2023

By Kien Lee

Breitling's Top Time model continues its spirited tradition, with partnerships with motoring icons in the business. These have included brands like Deus Ex Machina and Triumph Motorcycles from the motorbike segment.

Formally inducting the Top Time Class Cars into its core collections which currently boasts partnerships with Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, and Shelby Cobra, Breitling has added the the Ford Thunderbird model with a red strap and clean white dial that draws the eye to the teal Thunderbird logo and red chronograph hands.

These four watches feature the colors and emblems of their 1950s and 1960s sports car counterparts. Further nods include design elements like the perforated leather racing strap, speed-measuring tachymeter scale, and contrasting “squircle” (not quite square, not quite round) subdials that are evocative of vintage dashboard gauges. And just like its style-driven 1960s predecessor, the Top Time’s 41-mm stainless-steel case is a comfortable size for car and watch lovers of all stripes.

The Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01, an in-house movement, is visible through the open sapphire-crystal caseback, providing an approximately 70-hour power reserve and a 5-year warranty. First released in 2009, the Breitling 01 Caliber is one of the most highly regarded chronograph movements in the industry, designed for maximum precision, reliability, and functionality.

All of Breitling’s mechanical calibers each has achieved the rigorous COSC certification, in addition to a gruelling series of in-house shock, winding, and pusher tests. To house the caliber, the Top Time case has been enhanced and now provides an increased water resistance of 100 m (10 bar).
