Co-designed with Australian lifestyle brand Deus Ex Machina, the custom motorcycle and surf outfitter, the Top Time Deus is a nod to Breitling’s original 1960s watch and a true tribute to the nomad spirit. Originally launched in the 1960s, the Top Time had a clear mission: to suit the needs of “the young and active professionals” with a range of “ultra-modern chronographs”. The sports watch appealed not only to that demographic, but also to those attracted by its bold lines. The Top Time Deus will appeal to bikers, boarders and backpackers, all looking for the freedom to explore the world their own way, at their own pace. Featuring a 41-millimetre stainless-steel case matched to a brown racing-themed calfskin leather strap, the Top Time Deus features yellow and orange details, a lightning-bolt-shaped chronograph hand on top of squircle-shaped chronograph counters, Deus’ adage “In benzin veritas” and a retro-looking motorcyclist in rally racer mode – by Deus creative director Carby Tuckwell – engraved on the caseback. Limited to 1500 pieces, this Top Time is powered by the Breitling Caliber 23, a COSC-certified chronometer.
The Perfect Watch For Members Of The Deus Squad
The Top Time DEUS perfectly embodies the philosophy of the DEUS SQUAD: Californian Forrest Minchinton, who’s passionate about surfboards as well as motorcycles; Sierra Lerback who is a Hawaiian competitive surfer; and French motorcycle engineer and designer Jeremy Tagand. All three have been with Deus Ex Machina for years now and are part of its rugged and fearless DNA. The Top Time DEUS recalls an era before the various pursuits of fun – motorcycling, surfing, skateboarding, whatever – were marketed into fundamentalist factions.
