Breitling is propelling its Colt towards new heights, and towards an appearance at Baselworld 2017, with an avant-garde case in Breitlight® and an ultra-technical black look. Code name: Skyracer, like the plane flying under Breitling colors in the Red Bull Air Race.
Light and sturdy Breitlight® is a material 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder, while featuring exceptional resistance to scratching, traction and corrosion, along with anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic properties. The Skyracer is also a champion of precision, it’s powered by a thermos-compensated SuperQuartzTM movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC.
Equipped with a rotating rider tab bezel serving to memorize times and a dial with an additional 24-hour (military) scale, the Colt Skyracer is distinguished by its 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. Water resistant to 100 meters, the wearer can easily remove a given strap section and use it as a measuring instrument, before refitting it just as smoothly.
