Co-designed with Australian lifestyle brand Deus Ex Machina, the custom motorcycle and surf outfitter, the Top Time Deus is a nod to Breitling’s original 1960s watch and a true tribute to the nomad spirit.

Originally launched in the 1960s, the Top Time had a clear mission: to suit the needs of “the young and active professionals” with a range of “ultra-modern chronographs”. The sports watch appealed not only to that demographic, but also to those attracted by its bold lines. The Top Time Deus will appeal to bikers, boarders or backpackers, all looking for the freedom to explore the world their own way, at their own pace.

Featuring a 41mm stainless steel case matched to a brown racing-themed calfskin leather strap, the Top Time Deus displays yellow & orange details, a lightning bolt shaped chronograph hand on top of squircle-shaped chronograph counters, Deus’ adage “In benzin veritas” and a retro-looking motorcyclist in rally racer mode by Deus creative director Carby Tuckwell engraved on the caseback. Limited to 1.500 pieces, this Top Time is powered by the Breitling Caliber 23, a COSC-certified chronometer.”
