Breitling has announced new perfect Breitling replica watches in partnership with Deus Ex Machina, the Australian lifestyle brand.
Known for its free-wheeling approach to everything from custom bike building to surfwear to snowboard accessories, Deus Ex Machina operates as “an exploration of the meld between art, apparel and aggro”.
“Bikers, boarders, beatniks, thrashers, titans and trekkers – Deus Ex Machina hurls a wrench into the outdoor, streetwear and extreme sports scenes,” it says.
Breitling first collaborated with the brand last year on its 1:1 UK fake Breitling Top Time Deus Limited Edition watches.
The model was an idiosyncratic take on cheap replica Breitling Top Time chronograph watches, originally from the 1960s and reissued after 55 years in a spruced-up version in 2020. The original now forms part of any self-respecting James Bond watch fan’s trivia book, being the model that kitted out Sean Connery’s Bond in 1965’s Thunderball.
Described by Q as “useful and unobstructive”, it came with a Geiger counter that detected radiation from two stolen atomic bombs and saved the world from Spectre’s Emilio Largo. (The best Breitling copy watches was assumed lost for 45 years before turning up in a car boot sale for £25 and fetching just under £104,000 at Christie’s in 2013.)
The original came with a regular round face and circular chronograph counters. The Deus Ex Machina model changed this up with ‘squircle’ shaped counters – a squircle is what it sounds like, a mix of a square and a circle, and is a real word, we checked – and pops of yellow and orange on the speed-measuring tachymeter scale.
The new 41mm Swiss movements Breitling Top Time Deus replica watches builds on that pleasing quirkiness with a new sky-blue colour palate, while keeping other aspects of its predecessor’s details intact, including the lightning bolt shaped chronograph hand, mushroom pushers and a racing-themed calfskin leather strap.
Each high quality Breitling super clone watches comes with a co-branded waxed canvas tote. The pair have also collaborated on a line of t shirts, sweatshirts and accessories, available via Breitling shops. The watch is produced in a limited run of 2,000.
The Swiss watch giant has made great strides in recent years broadening its perception as specialists in aviation watches by adding more lifestyle-centric models, including its sporty luxury replica Breitling Superocean Heritage line and its “athleisure” Endurance Pro watches.
“Bikers, boarders, surfers… this is a timepiece for dynamic people of action, purpose and style,” commented Breitling CEO Georges Kern of the original collab. “Our versatile Top Time Deus celebrates having the freedom to explore the world your way, at your pace.”
