The colorful Top Time replica watches celebrated the iconic style of both the chronographs and the cars from that decade. And they did so with great success. Breitling now introduces the new Top Time Classic Cars Editions as a next step.The Breitling Top Time has a special place in my heart. In my opinion, the Top Time ref. 810 is not only one of the best chronographs in Breitling’s history but also one of the best-looking chronographs ever produced period.
Combining the 38mm Mark 1 case with its chamfered lugs and 21mm lug spacing, the three-register layout, and the colors, it’s just an awesome chronograph that I hold in higher regard than many of its contemporaries. Add the famous hand-wound Venus 178 column-wheel chronograph movement, and what you get is the perfect vintage classic.
Introducing the updated Top Time Classic Cars Editions
It started with the instantly recognizable “Zorro” edition with a bowtie/Zorro-mask dial. Another Breitling Top Time Replica model was the popular collaboration model with Deus Ex Machina that sold out in no time. That collaboration continued in late 2022 with the second Top Time Deus Ex Machina model.
The lineup consisted of three models in two sizes, and they were based on three different iconic cars from the 1960s — the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, and Shelby Cobra. For 2023, these three models have been updated, and a fourth model has been added to the fleet.
Let’s start with the overall details
All Cheap Breitling Replica come with a 41mm stainless steel case that is 13.8mm thick and has a lug-to-lug of just over 50mm.Those two watches featured three sub-dials and housed the ETA 2892-A2-based Caliber 25. For the two-register Shelby Cobra model, Breitling used a 40mm case with the similarly ETA-based Caliber 41.
It operates at 28,800vph and provides 70 hours of power reserve. For those wondering, the Shelby Cobra still features a two-register layout, while the other three models have a three-register layout, despite using the same movement.
The new Ford Thunderbird model
The Breitling Replica Watches is a beautiful new addition to the lineup with a white dial and some great colorful accents. As you probably will know, we have seen the integration of bright colors on multiple new Top Time models. Not everyone is a big fan of this, but I have to say that I like the colors on some of the Top Time releases we’ve seen.
The white dial features red and orange accents on the tachymeter scale that stand out immediately. On top of that, the light blue Thunderbird logo is placed directly under the Breitling logo. In a funky next step, we see the orange, red, and light blue return for the hands of the three sub-registers.
The Breitling First Copy Watches central chronograph hand is executed in bright red, and it contrasts extremely well against the white background. The hour markers and the hands are treated with white Super-LumiNova to be fully in line with the white dial. The tone-on-tone registers are slightly recessed and create some depth in an otherwise crispy white dial with some nice hints of color. The watch comes with the choice of a red leather strap or a mesh bracelet.
What the movement upgrade means for the line
The Newest Top Quality Breitling Top Time Classic Cars Replica collection makes for a colorful quartet of watches with nice upgrades in both the movement and the design.I very much appreciate that Breitling has equipped these four new 41mm chronographs with its in-house B01 caliber. It is a step forward in many ways.
Breitling’s B01 column-wheel chronograph movement is a beautiful piece of machinery that is a definite step up from the ETA-based movements in the previous models. Secondly, in using the B01 movement, the path lies open to creating a new family of 41mm Top Time references.
Though I am a fan of classic cars but not a fan of co-branding for watches, the new Swiss Top Breitling Replica is probably my favorite of the modern Breitling Top Time models. Of course, a reissue of the original ref. 810 could easily take its place, but I’ll have to keep waiting for that one.
