I have a Top Time stamped 765 on the back. Can someone tell me where in the chronology of Top Times this one fits? Any other information about this watch? Many thanks.

no precise info re that - actually it is a variation that shouldn‘t exist, as these TopTime had a different. monocoque (later compressor) case and carry the reference 810, while the screwback 765 had their own silver or panda arabics dial, just sharing the hands.

but we have seen a dozen or more of this configuration over the years, so it seems Breitling had a shortage of 765 dials and assembled a batch with reverse panda Toptime dials, have never seen white examples.

as the dials are Mk1, assembly timeframe would have to be 1964 to ca. 1968

one of the watches we have seen hee came from the original owner, who had purchased it in 1966, confirming that.

Many thanks, Fred, you've nailed it. Mine has a reverse panda dial and is, indeed, a screw back. It's a nice watch and keeps perfect time.
