Deus x Breitling

Hot on the heels of two sold-out limited editions, Breitling and Deus Ex Machina have joined forces on a third instalment of the Top Time Deus, set to become part of Breitling's core collection.

The new piece presents a monochromatic departure from its colourful predecessors, with a black dial contrasted by its white triple-register subdials and tachymeter scale. It works on either a black racing-themed calfskin leather strap or a mesh metal bracelet. When the colour comes in are with touches of red on the outer dial and most vividly - on the centrepiece chrono hand that, like the two previous Top Time Deus editions, is shaped like a lightning bolt.

The sublime engine behind this watch is the Breitling Manufacture Calibre 01, whose open sapphire-crystal caseback features a red Deus logo at its centre.
