Breitling capsule collection

During the 2021 Geneva Watch Days, the Maison presented a capsule collection paying tribute to the legendary sports cars of the 1960s.

This uconventional trio of racing chronographs is inspired by the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang and Shelby Cobra, three icons of American car culture. The timepieces themselves are a nod to the original Top Time models that were designed for “young and active professionals” in the Sixties.

These chronographs feature boldly coloured dials sporting orange and yellow or red and blue touches, paired with racing-themed calfskin straps. The stainless steel casebacks are adorned with the impressively detailed logos of each car. All three watches are water resistant to 100m.

The range includes the Top Time Chevrolet Corvette in red and black, based on the striking design of the Corvette C2 from the mid-1960s, often referred to as the “Sting Ray” by aficionados. Then there’s the green and brown Top Time Ford Mustang version, inspired by a car developed in record time in 1964, sparking a new genre of compact and affordable sports cars. Last but not least there’s the Top Time Shelby Cobra version in blue and brown.
