If you search online for Breitling top time 810 you’ll get all these is to know. Yours had a bit of an unusual dial - says “SWISS” where is normally says “Geneve” and it’s missing the Top Time name. It’s a known dial variant.

Does, but in the same way 810 and 815 dials look similar. 815 says Geneve, not Swiss. A few of these are documented on the forum.

Looks like the dial has been redone to me. Why have Swiss and Swiss Made both on it?

Its in the Breitling catalogue this way, so not a reprint.

You're probably correct but the dial printing looked sloppy but it might just be the pic. Still a weird 810 especially without the Top Time on the dial.

yes, it is weird - but discussed before, Paul, print quality of the logo is definitely worse on these than on the Geneve..
