The Colt watch series by Breitling expresses its youthful, dynamic and winning spirit in a brand-new model dedicated to those seeking thrills and adventure. The watch features the stunning avant-garde case in new Breitlight material – an ultra-technical black look. The name this watch takes is Skyracer – named aptly after the plane flying under Breitling colours in the world-famous Red Bull Air Race.
The watch features everything you would expect from Breitling – high performance, efficiency and ultra-reliability. The Colt has retained, from its military background, all the essential qualities of an authentic instrument for professionals. Breitling are pushing the Colt model to fresh new heights by combining a state-of-the-art model with reliable technical assets with an original design and an extremely competitive price. Exactly what it takes to make the Colt a new all-comers champion.
The new Colt is a champion of lightness and sturdiness, with a 45 mm case in Breitlight. This new material is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet is significantly harder, making it perfect for everyday use. This exclusive high-tech material is distinguished by numerous qualities: exceptional resistance to scratches, traction and corrosion; anti-magnetic, anti-allergenic properties; as well as a warmer ‘touch’ than metal and a slightly mottled effect accentuating its originality.
The beauty of this watch is the little subtle features that improve the reliability, precision and looks of the watch. The Colt Skyracer is equipped with a thermocompensated SuperQuartz movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).
The legibility of the Colt Skyracer is also second to none. The watch features white luminescent hands and indications standing out against the black background. Red accents reminiscent of instrument panels and a sapphire crystal glare proofed on both sides.
The watch is also a champion of shock-resistance, with substantial reinforcements surrounding the screw-locked, rubber-modded crown, and a protruding bezel gasket perfectly protecting the crystal.
Equipped with a rotating rider tab bezel serving to memorise times and a dial with an additional 24 hour (military) scale, the Colt Skyracer (water-resistant to 100 m/330 ft) is also distinguishable by its exclusive black rubber strap bearing various measurement scales that are useful to adventures of all kinds. The watch also features an ingenious removable fastening system enabling the wearer to quickly and easily remove the section of their choice and use it as a measuring instrument, before refitting just as smoothly.
Born for great feats, speed and challenges, the Breitling Colt Skyracer reflects the nature of the MXS-R “Skyracer” plane – powerful, reliable and looks great in action.
