Close your eyes and transport yourself back to the mid-1960s, auto racing was in its heyday and a whole subculture had sprung up around “café racers” — stylish motorcycles used to take their riders from café to café.
Willy Breitling set out to capture the speed-driven style of the day with a completely new take on the timekeeper — the perfect fake Breitling Top Time, an unconventional chronograph designed for “young and active professionals” quickly became a hit thanks to the watch’s bold proportions.
Today, that 1960s café-racer spirit is back in a spectacular new Top Time collaboration between uk luxury replica Breitling and British motorcycle brand Triumph.

The star of the watch is the ice-blue dial. This unique colour has two major references: a blue Triumph Thunderbird 6T from 1951, and a rare, blue-dialled cheap fake Breitling Top Time Ref. 815 from the 1970s.
Other features include a subdued racing-themed calfskin leather strap that lets the hero dial shine; Swiss made replica Breitling and Triumph logos that sit subtly at 12 and 6 o’clock; oversized mushroom pushers that allow for easy control of the chronograph’s stop-start and reset functions; and a high contrast tachymeter scale that provides clear legibility of speed readings.
The watch is powered by the AAA replica Breitling Caliber 23, a COSC-certified chronometer with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours.
The caseback is etched with a detailed design sketch of Triumph’s parallel-twin engine — a cool feature we’re sure collectors will love.
At a 41mm diameter, the best 1:1 fake Breitling Top Time Triumph is, like the original, a fit for both sexes.
The Breitling Top Time replica for sale is priced at £4,500 and it is available to buy from Goldsmiths now.
