Lightweight flying high Breitling Colt Skyracer

Breitling Colt Skyracer
The Breitling Colt Skyracer is a champion of lightness and sturdiness

Functional lightness for a not too heavy price. If a 40 gram Richard Mille of a cool million is out of reach but you still wanna rock a seriously light watch, the new Breitling Colt Skyracer in Breitlight® might be just the watch for you.

And they called it Skyracer. Breitling didn’t produce a superhero but the company’s new lightweight Colt is the stuff highflying men and women in capes would like to wear during heavy missions. Breitling propels its Colt towards new heights, with an avant-garde case in Breitlight® and an ultra-technical black look. The name Skyracer is taken from the plane that flies under Breitling colours in the fabulous Red Bull Air Race.

Lighter, harder, stronger

Breitling Colt SkyracerThe 45mm Breitling Colt Skyracer is a champion of lightness and sturdiness because of its case made of Breitlight®: a material 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder, while featuring exceptional resistance to scratching, corrosion, along with anti-magnetic and anti-allergenic properties. Big, black and …? Precise. No not precise as in Exactly but precise as in accurate. The Colt is powered by a thermos-compensated SuperQuartzTM Breitling 74 Caliber that is ten times more accurate than a standard quartz movement. It’s chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) too as all Breitlings are. The Colt Skyracer is also distinguished by its exclusive strap bearing various measurement scales. The wearer can easily remove a given strap section and use it as a measuring instrument, before refitting it just as smoothly.
