Breitling continues its “Revhead revolution” with a new motorcycle-inspired watch

Breitling is increasingly positioning itself as the brand of choice for the revhead. The iconoclastic independent Swiss watchmaker has always been closely associated with aviation and cool planes, but recent releases – particularly new editions of their classic Top Time chronograph – have begun to embrace other forms of motorized transportation. internal combustion.

First up, we have the Top Time Classic Cars (try saying that three times faster) capsule collection, which celebrates some of the most iconic American muscle cars ever made. We’ve also seen Breitling team up with Deus Ex Machina, Australia’s legendary motorcycle customizing shop, on a special Top Time limited edition as well.

Now Breitling has teamed up with legendary British motorcycle brand, Triumph, on yet another retro-inspired, Revhead-endorsed Top Time collection to celebrate Triumph’s 120th anniversary… And as much as Aussie pride would have us defending the Top Time Deus, we reckon these new models might just be the best looking Top Times yet.

Check out the new Breitling Top Time Triumph below.

What makes the Breitling Top Time Triumph (ref. A23311121C1X1) so pretty, then? Well, that’s his dial. Ice blue, the dial features a distinctive brushed finish with a retro bow tie pattern that has been dubbed “the Zorro dial” by Top Time collectors. Ice blue or light blue dials are really all the rage right now in the luxury watch world, and the Top Time Triumph is a particularly tasty example.

Other details enthusiasts will appreciate are the old-school Breitling and Triumph logos that sit subtly at 12 and 6 o’clock and the way the casebacks are engraved with a detailed design sketch of Triumph’s parallel-twin engine. Under the hood, the fully modern, COSC-certified Breitling Caliber 23 chronometer movement powers the capable chrono.

As part of this release, Triumph is releasing 270 co-branded motorcycles – the Speed ​​Twin Breitling Limited Edition, which features ice blue paint reminiscent of the watch. Buyers of the fire-breathing cafe racer will have the option of acquiring an exclusive version of the Top Time Triumph, the Speed ​​Twin Owners’ Limited Edition (ref. A233111A1C1X1), which features a sunburst dial instead of a Zorro dial. and an engraved bottom with the individual number of the bike.
