Breitling’s Top Time Classic Cars collection celebrates American car icons



The Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang and Shelby Cobra are three of the classic American sports cars of the 1960s that have carried their popularity to this day. To celebrate their long-standing legend, Breitling presents itself and pays tribute to the trio through its ‘Top Time Classic Cars Capsule Collection’, all inspired by these icons themselves.

Recognized as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of innovative high-precision chronographs since 1884, Breitling today is led by a “modern-retro” manifesto that focuses more on free spirits. “It’s about the journey, not the tempo. And it’s true whether you are tinkering under the hood or taking the road for a Sunday stroll celebrating these beautiful machines ”, explains Georges ken, CEO of Breitling.

Three icons of American car culture – Chevrolet Corvette, Shelby Cobra, Ford Mustang.

With Breitling’s Top Time Classic Cars capsule collection, we see a range of disruptive timepieces guided by the racing keys of the models that go with the original cars to perfection.

First on the list is the ‘Top Time Chevrolet Corvette‘with a bold red dial with a black tachymeter scale, in the same way black contrasting sub-dials. To this is added a running themed calfskin strap in a black tint with folding clasp.

Then it’s the ‘Top Time Ford Mustang‘which instantly mesmerizes the eyes. It comes with a fiery green dial, black tachometer scalee, and black contrasting sub-dials. Additionally, we love how the contrasting brown leather strap enhances the appearance of the chronograph in a very striking way.

Finally, make way for blue. For the “Top Time Shelby Cobra” we once again see the luxurious brown calfskin strap paired with a blue dial with white tachymeter scale, as well as contrasting white sub-dials.

All watches are approved as COSC Certified Chronometer and are made in-house in Switzerland with a quality that can only be felt in practice, such as the movements we experience while driving at full speed.
