Watchmaker Breitling, the official timekeeper of the Deus Swank Rally, collaborated with Deus Ex Machina, an Australian motorcycle and surfing lifestyle brand, to launch the Top Time Deus Limited Edition. This warm, retro-inspired timepiece reflects the 1960s spirit of the original Breitling Top Time Chronograph. In the words of Breitling’s CEO, Georges Kern, “Bikers, boarders, surfers, digital nomads….this is a timepiece for dynamic people of action, purpose, and style. Our versatile Top Time Deus celebrates having the freedom to explore the world your way, at your pace.”
The bold yet classic design of this Breitling chronograph features a sports racing-themed calfskin leather strap along with a silver dial containing orange and yellow details. It is powered by the Breitling Caliber 23 and has a power reserve of 48 hours. Uniquely, this timepiece features a chronograph hand fashioned in the shape of a deep orange lighting bolt, which pays homage to the racing spirit of Breitling’s original timepiece. The back of the watch’s 41-millimeter stainless-steel case features the signature Deus artwork of a motorcyclist in full flight, designed by Deus creative director Carby Tuckwell. The Top Time Deus is a limited-issue chronograph, with only 1,500 available pieces. Those who order the watch will receive a leather handled canvas bag and Deus coffee table book along with their purchase of the Top Time Deus from Breitling and Deus Ex Machina.
