Breitling Colt Skyracer

Marina Milojević | 02.12.17 | 04:52 AM

Breitling introduces a brand new version of its most popular Colt, which has been one of the Breitling’s most accessible models, for a long time. The entry-level, quartz-powered new Breitling is said to be dedicated to thrill-seekers.

This military-inspired sports watch, for the first time ever, arrives with an ultra-light and ultra-sturdy case, made from Breitling’s proprietary alloy named Breitlight, which is 3.3 times lighter than titanium, and no less than 58 times lighter than steel. Featuring an ultra-technical, masculine, black design, the model is dubbed Skyracer, which is a subtle tip of the hat to the plane flying under Breitling’s colors in the Red Bull Air Race.

The highly efficient and ultra-reliable Colt Skyracer measures 45mm in diameter. Its state-of-the-art case makes it exceptionally resistant to scratches, violent shocks, traction, and corrosion. Moreover, Breitlight, which possesses superior anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic properties, is also more comfortable to wear than any other metal. The case accommodates a thermocompensated SuperQuartz movement, Caliber 74, which is no less than ten times more accurate than any standard quartz. Just like all other Breitling’s movements, the SuperQuartz is chronometer-certified by the COSC, and proven to be extra-reliable.
