Watch Of The Day: Swiss Breitling Replica Colt Skyracer

Though often overlooked in place of more famous models such as the Swiss Breitling Replica Navitimer and Chronomat, the Colt is by no means a pushover. Just as the Navitimer was flagged as a bona fide pilot’s watch.

The Chronomat a professional instrument for scientists and engineers, the Colt, introduced in the 1980s, wears its tool-watch tag proudly, having been created specifically as a timekeeper.

The first thing you notice about the Breitling Super Clone is its jet-black 45mm case with textured surface that resembles screed cement. It is a great, sporty look, of course, but this here, is beauty with substance.

The appearance is the result of a proprietary material called Breitlight, first seen on last year’s Avenger Hurricane. Breitlight is a lightweight polymer material made with composite fibres.

It touted to be six times lighter than steel, three times lighter than titanium, and hardier than both metals. It is also scratch- and corrosion-resistant, anti-magnetic and hypoallergenic – a perfect case material, in other words, for a Breitling Replica Forum watch designed for use in extreme environments.

The Colt Skyracer’s cutting-edge case material, however, belies its unfussy practicality. A ‘simple’ timekeeper, the watch prides itself on high legibility, thanks to the high-contrast interface on the dial with white luminescent indicators.

The signature rotating unidirectional bezel with rider tabs is particularly useful for setting countdown times, while a new rubber strap comes in handy with etchings of various measurement scales.

Driving the Best Breitling Replica Site is the quartz-powered Calibre 74, a COSC-certified movement. It belongs to a family of ‘SuperQuartz’ movements that is thermos-compensated and 10 times more accurate than standard quartz movements, which the brand has been developing since 2001.
