This Top Time is so bad, it is almost funny. This is the type of watch where it takes longer to look for the correct parts than listing the obvious issues. Here, the dial is horrendous: the sub-registers are incorrect, Top Time is incorrectly spelled (it should not come with a dash), and so is the lume mention without the T after Swiss Made. And the list could go on, knowing that the chronograph hands, the inner track, and the crown are fantastically wrong too. The only correct thing here is the case, and it is not even in great condition.

This phenomenally franken Breitling can be found on eBay here, with bidding already above $500.
