Breitling Colt Skyracer
The Colt by Breitling expresses its youthful, dynamic and winning spirit in a brand-new model dedicated to thrill-seekers, with an avant-garde case in Breitlight and an ultra-technical black look. Code name: Skyracer, like that of the plane flying under Breitling colors in the fabulous Red Bull Air Race.
High-performance, efficient, ultra-reliable: the Colt has retained from its military background all the qualities of an authentic instrument for professionals. Breitling is propelling it towards fresh heights by launching a state-of-the-art model combining reliable technical assets with an original design and an extremely reasonable price. Exactly what it takes to make the Colt a new all-comers champion.
With a 45 mm case in Breitlight. 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder, this exclusive hightech 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.
It has a thermocompensated SuperQuartzTM movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). The movement of the watch is Breitling Caliber 74.
White luminescent hands and indications are standing out against the black background, red accents reminiscent of instrument panels and a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides.
With substantial reinforcements surrounding the screw-locked, rubber-molded crown, and a protruding bezel gasket protecting the crystal the Colt Skyracer offers a good shock-resistance.
Equipped with a rotating rider tab bezel serving to memorize times and a dial with an additional 24-hour (military) scale, the Colt Skyracer (water-resistant to 100 m/330 ft) is also distinguished by its exclusive black rubber strap bearing various measurement scales that are useful to adventurers of all kinds: 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 scales on the 12 o'clock strap section, centimeters and inches on the 6 o'clock section. An ingenious removable fastening system enables the wearer to quickly and easily remove the section of their choice and use it as a measuring instrument, before refitting it just as smoothly.
The Colt Skyracer reflects the nature of the MXS-R "Skyracer", the high-performance plane on the Breitling Racing Team flown by aerobatics rising star Mika Brageot in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.
The price for the Colt Skyracer is $2,000.
