Produced towards the end of the production of the Co-Pilots that were made famous mainly due to Rachel Welch wearing one in the movie Fifty Fathom, The Top Time reference 7656 marks the end of an era of the 1960's era of oversize chronographs. Looking very similar in look and lay-out to the original reference 765/7650 this reference is characterised by its revolving bezel, its inner tachometer bezel and being signed Top Time on the dial and was, for the first time, equipped with a Valjoux movement. These examples are considered very scarce and it is the first of this reference ever to be offered by Antiquorum.
