A stunning example of the Breitling Top Time, reference 2002, from circa 1965. This particular specimen features a striking reverse panda dial.

The Breitling Top Time was introduced in the same year as the Heuer Carrera, with the intention of appealing to a younger audience. The Breitling Top Time reference 2002 was also the first watch to undergo the "Q Treatment" in the James Bond franchise, appearing on the wrist of Sean Connery in the 1965 film Thunderball.

The Breitling Top Time, especially in reverse panda guise, has become a collector's favourite because of its decent size and lovely proportions. The 17 jewel movement complements the watch's appealing design with sturdy and reliable performance.

Technical & Condition: 

Presented in overall excellent condition. The dial remains clean and free from damage. The glass is overall free from scratches with the exception of a couple on the edge. The case remains sharp and clean for its age with only a few age-related scratches as would be expected. The movement has just come back from a service and finally, the watch is fitted with a new, 3rd party leather strap.

  • Case size (exc. crown): 36mm
