Breitling’s newest model is the perfect entry-level timepiece for those who admire the brand’s thrillseeking image.
Priced at A$2,780, this edition of The Colt by Breitling is an amazing timepiece for the guy looking to build a collection of high-end timepieces by established brands.
Sporting an avant-garde case in Breitlight® and an ultra-technical black look, The Colt Skyracer is named after the plane flying under Breitling colours in the famous Red Bull Air Race.
The new version retains hallmarks of the line’s military background as well as all the qualities that establish it as one of Breitling’s authentic “instruments for professionals”.
The 45 mm case in Breitlight® is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder, offering exceptional resistance to scratches, traction and corrosion; anti-magnetic, anti-allergenic properties
The thermocompensated SuperQuartz™ movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).
The Skyracer’s white luminescent hands and indications stand out against the black background, with red accents reminiscent of instrument panels and a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides.
A rotating rider tab bezel serves to memorize times and a dial with an additional 24-hour (military) scale, while the model’s exclusive black rubber strap bears 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.
Born for great feats, speed and challenges, 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 (below) in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.
