Breitling Top Time Ref. 810 Mark II - A 1960s Chronograph Icon
Introduced in the 1960s, the Breitling Top Time line was designed to appeal to a younger, sportier audience. This Ref. 810 Mark II exemplifies the bold aesthetics and precision engineering that made these watches stand out in their era.

The 38mm stainless steel case houses a striking black dial with contrasting white subdials, creating the coveted "reverse panda" configuration. A tachymeter scale encircles the dial, protected by an acrylic crystal. This manual-wind chronograph embodies the sporty elegance of its time.

At the heart of this Top Time beats the venerable Venus 178 caliber. This manual-wind chronograph movement features 17 jewels, a column wheel mechanism, a 45-hour power reserve, and an 18,000 vph beat rate. Renowned for its reliability, the Venus 178 is a favourite among vintage chronograph enthusiasts.

The reverse panda dial offers excellent legibility with its stark contrast. Applied hour markers and lume plots add depth, while the chronograph hands feature a distinctive line of lume for easy reading. This combination of functionality and style epitomizes the Top Time's appeal.

The Top Time series was Breitling's answer to the growing demand for sporty chronographs in the 1960s. Its 38mm case set it apart from competitors like the Heuer Carrera, which typically came in at 36mm. The extra 2mm gave the Top Time a more substantial wrist presence without sacrificing elegance.

Collector's Notes:
  • The Top Time series has seen renewed interest in recent years, with vintage examples becoming increasingly sought-after.
  • The Venus 178 movement is highly regarded among collectors for its reliability and ease of servicing.
  • The slightly larger case size of the Top Time makes it an excellent option for modern wearability while retaining vintage charm.
This Breitling Top Time Ref. 810 Mark II offers a compelling blend of 1960s chronograph design, a respected movement, and a touch more presence than some of its contemporaries. It represents an opportunity to own a significant piece from Breitling's rich chronograph heritage. With examples becoming harder to find, be sure ot secure this now before someone else does!
