It’s amazing what a bit of old school 1970s gold paint can do and we love the Black Bay chronograph with a gold/champagne dial for 2022. Those retro pushers and that classic twin sub-dial look hark back to the Valjoux 7733/34 cal chronographs of the motorsports era when Lauda, Hunt, Stewart and Fittipaldi were doing their thing in Grands Prix.
We are still liking the Breitling Top Time, plus the Hamilton Intra-Matic in blue has a classic appeal for less money. Tough decision.
Prices on the BB Chrono in steel and gold start at £4620 for the brown leather strap variant.
