Breitling has added yet another classic car-inspired watch to its Top Time collection, with the latest model, which joins the Mustang– and Corvette-inspired pieces, paying homage to the iconic Shelby Cobra. 


Like its stablemates, the Top Time Shelby Cobra features a stainless steel case. The Shelby Cobra’s item measures 40 mm in diameter. This variant’s dial is finished in blue, replete with white, red and light blue accents. The ‘Cobra’ emblem can be found at the six o’clock index and imprinted on the case back. The case is presented on a racing-inspired, brown calfskin leather strap. 

The timepiece is driven by the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer’s Calibre 41 movement. The COSC-certified, self-winding unit offers a power reserve of “approximately” 42 hours. The mechanical item is kept safe at depths of up to 100 metres. 

The Top Time Shelby Cobra is priced at R95 300. For more information on this Breitling and other luxury watches, visit APEX’s sister website Haute Montres at
