Within the decades, the Navitimer, the Superocean, the Aerospace, Breitling for Bentley, and much more have left marks around the industry, only one of Breitling’s most well-known mid-century products continues to be absent from the current selection for a lot too lengthy. The Top Time was one of Breitling’s sportiest, most youth-oriented models in the 1960s, assisting to shape the sports watch landscape during a time period of monumental design shifts. After many years of dormancy Breitling has now revived one of the Top Time’s most iconic references, the Ref. 2003, for the new Breitling Top Time Limited Edition 41mm watch replica.
While upsized to a more modern 41 mm, the stainless steel case is solidly faithful in form to the ‘60s original. The unadorned narrow bezel, simple straight lugs and tall piston pushers are all here, keeping the ethos of the Breitling Top Time Limited Edition watch fake firmly rooted to the original. While the case is true to the ‘60s in form, one drawback is that it’s also extremely faithful to the time period in terms of water resistance. Breitling rates this case at only 30 meters, ensuring this sports watch should be dry weather only.
Where Breitling’s classic style is really allowed to run free is the dial. The Breitling Top Time Limited Edition stainless steel watch fake revives the classic Ref. 2003, known among collectors as the “Zorro dial” for the mask-like appearance, or the “bow tie” for obvious reasons. This stark, dramatic splash of black on white is a refreshing alternative to the traditional panda dial format and serves to make the subdials stand out immediately at first glance.
Another ‘60s throwback is the use of an outer decimal scale, rather than the more typical tachymeter or pulsations scale. While not as dramatic or situationally useful as some of those others, the decision to keep with a decimal track maintains the handsome visual symmetry of an already well balanced dial. One way this new revival sets itself apart from the original, however, is the vibrant use of red as an accent color. While the Ref. 2003 also shares the red accents on the central chronograph seconds and the 30-minute chronograph minutes at 3 o’clock, the Top Time Limited Edition takes things a step further with vibrant red on the central hours and minutes. It’s an intense color, but in just the right quantity to make the dial pop on the wrist without becoming overwhelming.
Breitling powers the Top Time Limited Edition fake with the Valjoux 7753-based Caliber 23 automatic chronograph movement. In addition to a small seconds and 30 minute chronograph, this movement offers COSC certified chronometer accuracy along with 48 hours of power reserve and a smooth 28,800 bph sweep.
Brown Nubuck Strap
The Breitling Top Time men’s watch replica comes paired with a textured brown nubuck strap in cocoa brown. The softness and textured finish play well off the vintage feel of the case and dial, but a black rally strap would also be an ideal combination.
“The Top Time is an important but often-overlooked part of our heritage,” states Breitling CEO Georges Kern, “and we know it’s going to resonate with men and women who love this blend of history, design, and great performance.” Breitling Top Time watch replica imited to 2,000 pieces and priced at $4,990.
