Breitling brings back its Top Time Classic Cars collection of watches. The updated range now includes the Ford Thunderbird model with a red strap and clean white dial.
The Top Time represented a break from traditional watch design for a generation that was breaking with convention in every way. We are going after that sense of freedom and fun with the 1960s-inspired Top Time Classic Cars collection, and are thrilled to once again partner with Ford to introduce the new Thunderbird model, along with updated versions of the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, and Shelby Cobra chronographs. – Georges Kern, Breitling CEO
Breitling joined forces with Deus Ex Machina and Triumph Motorcycles for bikes, Ford Thunderbird and Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, and Shelby Cobra for cars to create its Top Time designs.
The dial of the new Ford Thunderbird watch features the teal Thunderbird logo and red chronograph hands. The timepiece includes the perforated leather racing strap, speed-measuring tachymeter scale, and contrasting “squircle” subdials that are evocative of vintage dashboard gauges.
All four watches from the Top Time Classic Cars collection feature the colors and emblems of their 1950s and 1960s sports car counterparts, and now all come with the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. This exceptional manufacture movement provides 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. As with all of Breitling’s mechanical calibers, each one has achieved the rigorous COSC certification. To house the caliber, the Top Time case has been enhanced and now provides an increased water resistance of 100 m (10 bar).
