Breitling and the Australian custom motorcycle and surf outfitter Deus Ex Machina joined forces for the second time to create a limited-edition Top Time Deus chronograph. Two brands also revealed a new clothing collaboration that revives the nomadic spirit of Breitling’s chronograph from the 1960s.
Limited to 2000 pieces, the new Top Time Deus features luminescent indexes and a white lacquered dial contrasted by sky-blue on its subdials and speed-measuring tachymeter scale. The color scheme of the timepiece is all new but it features the details that made the first collab so successful. There is the lightning-bolt-shaped chronograph hand, mushroom pushers, racing-themed calfskin leather strap and caseback engraving of a Deus bike and rider designed by Deus creative director Carby Tuckwell. Each caseback is marked with the “One of 2000” limitation.
First introduced in the 1960s, Breitling’s unconventional Top Time chronograph became iconic and featured a stylish in-crowd of café racer and sports car enthusiasts. Men and women were equally drawn to its bold proportions and graphic dials. Today, the Top Time remains Breitling’s watch for bikers, boarders, surfers, and digital nomads – and at 41 mm, it’s a fit for most wrists.
Each new chronograph comes with a co-branded waxed-canvas travel tote. Breitling and Deus have also partnered on a new line of clothing and accessories that fans of the brands can only get their hands on at six Breitling flagships worldwide (Seoul Hannam, New York Madison Avenue, Milan, London New Bond Street, London Regent Street and Sydney).
The new Top Time Deus is available on Breitling.com, in Breitling boutiques and through selected retailers, while quantities last.
