Breitling revealed the fourth model to join their 1960s-inspired Top Time Classic Cars collection – Top Time B01 Ford Thunderbird. All watches from the collection were inspired by watches Willy Breitling created in the 1960’s when American sports cars were becoming a cult and significant part of culture.
Breitling has added a beautiful timepice that pays homage to the original Ford Thunderbird which debuted at the 1954 Detroit Auto Show for the ’55 model year and eventually became the very first personal luxury car upon the debut of its second generation in ’58. Adorned with a striking red perforated leather racing strap, this chronograph sports a white dashboard-inspired dial with “squircle” totalizers, each with a different color hand, and the T-Bird’s emblem on the upper half. Rounding out the dial is the outer ring which serves as a tachymeter scale to measure speed.
All four versions of the Top Time Classic Cars Edition are available from Breitling’s website now, priced at $8,000 each. And don’t forget to check our list of the most expensive watches in the world
