Breitling Top Time Chronograph 'Long Playing' 1974 Ref. 815 Watch
Breitling Top Time is the name given to the series of watches characterized by a bold and elegant design, which were also useful tools for professional pilots and racers. These watches were first introduced in 1964 and were primarily intended for young men. Breitling Top Time watches were positioned as entry-level chronographs, with much lower prices than the company’s flagships, the Navitimer and Chronomat.
The term “Long Playing” referred to Breitling Top Time watches with an extraordinarily long mainspring providing users with a 52-hour power reserve from a single wind. This is displayed through the extra sub-dial which sets this model apart from the standard Top Time.
This example Ref. 815 is finished in a stainless steel case, brushed steel panda dial and comes complete with a brand new black leather strap and steel deployment buckle.
