The Breitling Top Time and Premier collection is live!
Top Time Classic Car collection
The 1960s was a period of experimentation, fun, freedom and energy. Whether you went cruising on your motorbike or were revving up your sportscar, life was lived at full speed and was the order of the day. Willy Breitling felt this change and set out to design an unconventional chronograph that breathed the lifestyle of this time. This resulted in the Breitling Top Time.
The tradition continues today with Breitling’s partnership with some of the coolest brands in wheels. Together they created the Top Time designs.
The Top Time B01 Classic Car collection features the colors and emblem of the classic-car counterparts, as well as a perforated leather racing strap, speed-measuring tachymeter scale and a contrasting “squircle” (not quite square, not quite round) subdials that give the feel of vintage dashboard gauges.
This watch is made with a movement that is worthy of bragging: The exceptional Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01.
In the early 1940’s, Willy Breitling was dreaming of the time after the war, when utility would give way to unbridled optimism. He began realising this dream by designing a chronograph which was both functional and undeniably elegant, and infinitely wearable. In his own words: “The unmistakable stamp of impeccable taste.” He called this new line the Premier.
In the creation process of the new Premier, Breitling preserved the distinctive vintage-Premier details. Including the smooth fixed bezel, wain-register dial, streamlined rectangular pushers and applied Arabic numerals. The Premier B01 Chronograph 42 is available in a range of dial colors and case materials. It comes on a choice of classic alligator leather strap or sleek 7-row metal bracelet. The new Premier also lives up to Willy Breitling’s uncompromising technical standards with its exceptional self-winding movement. The COSC-certified Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01. This movement was designed for maximum precision, reliability and functionality.
