Breitling has always been a watch manufacturer that produces masculine and cool watches. The new Colt Skyracer – which represents winning spirit, youthfulness, and dynamism – is another interesting piece that is added into the repertoire.
The new Colt Skyracer adopts a full-black aesthetic, and retaining its military background with reliable performance to match.
One of the key highlights for the watch is its case, in which it is manufactured using Breitlight. First seen in the Avenger Hurricane, the composite material is known for both its lightweight and strength. The material is said to be 3.3 times lighter than titanium, and 5.8 times lighter than steel. There are also other properties, such as its ability to withstand scratches and corrosion. On top of that, it is both anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic as well. In short, it is very durable and robust.
Besides that, the Colt Skyracer is fitted with an equally robust movement as well. The watch is fitted with Breitling’s Calibre 74, a thermocompensated SuperQuartz movement that is COSC-certified. The movement is 10 times more accurate than a standard Quartz movement, and it comes with a date indicator and a battery life of approximately 8 years.
The 45mm Colt Skyracer includes other features as well. It includes a rotating tab bezel for timekeeping purpose, as well as a strap that includes various measurement scales.
Overall, the timepiece is built for adventures. It is a utilitarian watch, with a hardy case and a reliable movement. Coupled with its cool full-black aesthetics, the Colt Skyracer might be something that will interest both the youths and adrenaline-junkies alike.
