Breitling Top Time Chevrolet Corvette
A distinctive celebration of design and freedom, the Breitling Top Time Classic Cars Squad pays homage to classic sports cars from the 1960s with a trio of racing chronographs. Drawing inspiration from the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang and Shelby Cobra, the timepieces are a nod to the original 1960s Breitling Top Time models, which were designed for “young and active professionals”. Today’s modern-retro interpretations are perhaps even more youthful and free-spirited.

But whatever you do, do it in Speedcat.
