Breitling Top Time 2002: A Chronograph Classic with Mid-Century Charm
An excellent example of the Breitling Top Time reference 2002. In the dynamic 1960s, when icons like Sean Connery and The Beatles shaped popular culture, Breitling introduced the Top Time. This line targeted a younger, style-conscious audience who craved sporty chronographs without the hefty price tag of the established Navitimer and Chronomat. The Top Time delivered just that, exuding youthful appeal with its diverse range of case and dial configurations.

Inspired by a New Generation
Breitling recognized the shift in tastes; this new generation sought watches that mirrored their fast-paced lives. The Top Time answered the call with bold dials, including our favourite "reverse panda" design (black with contrasting white subdials). It also delivered classic styling with panda variations (white with black subdials), alongside more unconventional dials in blue or bright colors. Its case shapes and pushers reflected the chronograph trends of the era, offering variety alongside performance.

The Reference 2002
Within the Top Time family, the two sub dial, reference 2002 was one of the most popular. Its minimalist chronograph lines made it a standout from the start. Initially equipped with Venus manual-wind movements, it later transitioned to Valjoux calibers – adding even more reliability to its timeless design. And for fans of spy thrillers, this reference achieved screen fame as the first-ever Bond watch to receive a 'Q' upgrade – outfitted with a Geiger counter in the film "Thunderball."

Join the Legacy
If timeless design with a touch of 1960s flair tickles your fancy, the Breitling Top Time 2002 might be the ideal addition to your collection. Whether you're drawn to its racing-inspired aesthetic or simply looking for a unique slice of watchmaking history, this chronograph won't disappoint.

Please note this is a pre-order item which means the watch is currently away being serviced. You can secure it today for the unbeatable pre-listing price shown. This price includes the price of the service so there is nothing more to pay than the price you see.

Don't miss it though - our pre-listing prices are so low that other dealers frequently buy from us! Please note no additional discounts are accepted on pre-orders and the price will rise substantially once back from service, if not secured before. We expect to have this back around the 3rd week of March.
