The new-generation Breitling

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.

A champion of lightness and sturdiness, 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 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.

A champion of precision, with a thermocompensated SuperQuartzTM movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).

A champion of legibility, with 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.

A champion of shock-resistance, with 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.

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 in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.

A new generation destined to lead the field.
