The watchmaking brand announced its new partnership with Australian lifestyle brand Deus Ex Machina.
As part of this collaboration, Breitling is also becoming official timekeeper of the Deus Swank Rally, an epic motorcycle championship celebrating vintage motorbikes in various locations around the world, including Italy, France, Australia and Bali.
The partnership has also given rise to the Deus Squad, composed of Californian surfing and motorbike enthusiast Forrest Minchinton, professional Hawaiian surfer Sierra Lerback, along with French motorbike engineer and designer Jeremy Tagand. All three have been involved with Deus Ex Machina for years and are now an integral part of the brand’s rugged and fearless DNA. Breitling is excited to have them on board for the launch of a timepiece that expresses their no-limits approach to life.
The Top Time Deus chronograph is a nod to Breitling’s original 1960s edition and a true tribute to the nomad spirit. Bold yet classy, this new version sports a racing-themed calfskin leather strap. Its silver-toned dial displays yellow and orange details, square-shaped chronograph counters, and the Deus logo complete with its adage “In benzin veritas” – offset in white on its black tachymeter scale. The back of its 41-millimeter stainless-steel case features the iconic Deus artwork of a retro-looking motorcyclist in full flight designed by Deus creative director Carby Tuckwell. It is powered by the Breitling Caliber 23, a COSC certified chronometer with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. But maybe the quirkiest detail is its chronograph hand in the shape of a lightning bolt. And like lightning, you’ve got to be fast: there are only 1,500 of these available.
