Breitling continues its collaboration with two iconic motorcycle brands by launching two Top Time chronographs, both equipped with the in-house caliber B01: the Top Time B01 Deus and the Top Time B01 Triumph. This automatic movement holds a COSC chronometer certificate and offers approximately 70 hours of power reserve.
The Top Time B01 Deus is the third special edition model created together with iconic Australian motorcycle brand Deus ex Machina. It features a black dial with white counters and red chronograph hands and two segments in red and orange on the tachymeter scale.
The Deus brand logo can be found below the Breitling retro logo, and the Deus motto “In Benzin Veritas”, graces the tachymeter scale. Also noteworthy is that the 41mm stainless steel case is equipped with a sapphire crystal case back for the first time.
This also applies to the Top Time B01 Triumph where the B01 is revealed through the caseback, with its column-wheel being clearly visible. The vertical clutch, which prevents the stop hand from jumping when the chronograph is started, is hidden from view.
Already in 2022, Breitling released a similar Top Time with the British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph, which also featured an ice-blue “Zorro” dial. Collectors nicknamed the model as such because of the quarter circles at 3 and 9 o’clock, which contrast with those at 6 and 12 o’clock, recalling the mask of the famous avenger.
With the ice blue dial color, the brand logos at 6 and 12 o’clock, and the sub dials in the form of rounded squares, it looks similar to the 2022 version of the first Top Time Triumph.
The technical specifications are the same as for the Top Time B01 Deus: the 41 mm stainless steel watch is COSC certified and water resistant to 100 meters.
Pricing for both new Breitling models is marked at $8,000.
