Breitling and the Australian custom motorcycle and surf outfitter Deus Ex Machina have teamed up once again on a limited-edition Top Time Deus chronograph. It’s the second collaboration between the two brands, following their first watch release in 2021.
Like its predecessor, the debutante’s design is inspired by the 1960s Top Time model, a favorite among the so called “café racers” and sports car enthusiasts, and accented by expressive colors.
The white lacquered dial features sky-blue totalizers and and a tachymeter scale in the same hues. Enthusiasts might recognize the signature details that made the first collab successful, including the lightning-bolt-shaped chronograph hand, mushroom pushers, and a racing-themed calfskin leather strap. The case back displays an engraving of a Deus bike and rider designed by Deus creative director Carby Tuckwell. Each case back is marked with the “One of 2000” limitation.
The Top Time Deus is driven by the self-winding and COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 23. It is housed in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 41mm and a water-resistance of 30 meters. Retail is $5,500.
