Breitling’s Deus catches a wave

Collaborations are all the rage in watch-making circles and few are doing it better than Breitling. Successful associations with iconic car models – Mustang, Corvette, Triumph, Thunderbird – and adventurers has helped cement the Swiss brand as the go-to cool horologists. Enter the Deus to underline that reputation. Co-designed with Australian surf-and-motorcycle outfitter Deus Ex Machina, the handsome Top Time piece wears the adage In benzin veritas (in petrol we trust) on the dial as well as having a retro-inspired perforated leather racing strap, speed-measuring tachymeter scale and contrasting squircle subdials that give the feel of a vintage dashboard gauge. There’s also a special lightning-bolt-shaped chronograph hand and, under the hood, a brag-worthy motor: the exceptional Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01.
