Breitling Colt Skyracer

Breitling presents a new model from its high-performance, efficient, ultra-reliable Colt collection. The Colt Skyracer, a youthful brand-new model dedicated to thrill-seekers, comes dressed in an avant-garde case in Breitlight® and boasts an ultra-technical black look.

Its 45 mm case is made in Breitlight®. 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder, 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 Colt Skyracer houses a thermo-compensated SuperQuartzTM movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).

The  white luminescent hands and indications standing out against the black background, red accents reminiscent of instrument panels and a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. The Colt Skyracer is a highly shock resistant watch, thanks to the substantial reinforcements surrounding the screw-locked, rubber-molded crown, and a protruding bezel gasket perfectly protecting the crystal.
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.
