The Chevrolet Corvette, the Ford Mustang, and the Shelby Cobra are three of the American classic sports cars from the 1960s that have carried their popularity to this date. To celebrate their long-lived legend, Breitling comes forward and pays a tribute to the trio through its ‘Top Time Classic Cars Capsule Collection’, all inspired by these icons themselves.
Renowned as one of the world’s manufacturers of innovative, high-precision chronographs since 1884, Breitling today is led by a ‘modern-retro’ manifesto which focuses more on free spirits. “It’s about the journey, not the tempo. And that’s true whether you’re tinkering under the hood or hitting the road for a Sunday ride celebrating these beautiful machines,” explainsGeorges Ken, CEO of Breitling.
With Breitling’s Top Time Classic Cars Capsule Collection, we see a range of disruptive timepieces guided by the models’ racing-orientated touches that go hand in hand with the original cars in utter perfection.
First on the list, it’s the ‘Top Time Chevrolet Corvette’ featuring a bold red dial with a black tachymeter scale, along with black contrasting subdials. Added to that is a racing-themed calfskin leather strap in a black hue with folding clasp.
Next, it’s the ‘Top Time Ford Mustang’ that instantly mesmerises the eyes. It comes with a high-spirited green dial, black tachymeter scale, and black contrasting subdials. Additionally, we love how the contrasting brown leather strap enhances the appearance of the chronograph in a very striking manner.
Lastly, it’s time for blue. For the ‘Top Time Shelby Cobra’, we yet again see the luxurious brown calfskin leather strap matched with a blue-coloured dial with white tachymeter scale, along with contrasting white subdials.
All watches are endorsed as a COSC-certified chronometer and are made in-house in Switzerland with such quality that can only be practically felt — like the movements we sense whilst driving in full speed.
Although Mind is often perceived as a poised extrovert who enjoys being out and about in the city driving one of her dad’s luxury supercars, decorating her cosy home whilst taking some feel-good, aesthetic snaps for her personal blog is actually what most comforts her. She is a home décor maniac, a car enthusiast and a woman who very much believes in the health-is-the-new-wealth kind of philosophy.
