Classics have their charm but even those have to evolve to fit into the current scenario. The younger generation may appreciate the appeal of retro but practical use takes precedence over nostalgia they’re unfamiliar with. Perhaps that’s why Breitling has launched the upgraded and updated version of one of its classic watches. Top Time, once a statement making watch (even James Bond has sported one in the 1960s), has been modified to adapt to a younger audience. The classic chronograph ups the swag with modern-day features like a 41mm stainless-steel case, Breitling Caliber 23 chronograph movement, 48-hour power reserve, a coating of Super-LumiNova on the red hour and minute hands for better legibility, and a brown nubuck leather strap to complete the retro savvy look. Priced at 3,55,030, there are only 2,000 of these limited edition watches up for grabs, so block one ASAP with your usual watch dealer or the official Breitling website.
