Since the launch of the brand in 2006, Deus Ex Machina’s enormous success has prompted the custom motorcycle, surf, and lifestyle powerhouse to branch out into a number of novel product spaces. Most recently, Deus has joined forces with Breitling to deliver a limited edition version of the luxury Swiss watchmaker’s Top Time Chronograph.

Paired with an 18mm tobacco brown calfskin strap with a yellow lining, the Deus Top Time is built around a 41mm stainless steel case with a dial that’s been largely redesigned. Now featuring a classic creme-colored dial with a black rim and retro-themed yellow and orange accents, the new face features revised subdials with rounded edges, a lightning bolt-shaped second hand, the classic Deus shield logo at 6 o’clock, and the custom motorcycle outfit’s adage “In Benzin Veritas” (Latin for “in gasoline, truth”). At the heart of the watch is Breitling’s Caliber 23 motor, a COSC-certified self-winding mechanical movement with 27 jewels, 100’ of water-resistance, a two-day power reserve, and a 28,800BPH beat rate. The case back also sports one of Deus’ classic hand-drawn motorcycle logos. Limited to 1,500 units worldwide, the Breitling Top Time Deus is priced at $4,990 and includes a special gift box, unique canvas tote bag, and a Deus coffee table book.

Purchase: $4,990
