Breitling Colt Skyracer Replica Watch Hands-On

The watch industry is facing tough times, and offering more affordable pieces that present a real value proposition for buyers is an obvious way to reach a larger market. For mainstream luxury brands like Breitling, this means more bang-for-buck pieces like the new Colt Skyracer that we have here. In covering the release of the Cheap Breitling Replica here, we said that it has an “extremely reasonable price” at around $2,000. That’s maybe not quite a steal, but the Breitling Colt Skyracer is a solid, sporty watch for those looking for Breitling quality and brand identity and who are open to the idea of high-end quartz movements.

Like most other watches from the brand, the Breitling Colt Skyracer is big, bold, and brash. And that is fitting because this watch is, beyond everything else, a tool watch. It measures 45mm wide and is 13.5mm thick. However, the cool thing about it is that it comes in a black carbon composite case. Cheap Breitling calls this carbon material Breitlight, and it is very strong and light. To give you an idea of how light it is, consider this fact: it is 3.3 times lighter than titanium. That is pretty incredible.
Breitlight also has other useful properties. It has “exceptional resistance” to scratches, corrosion, and it is also non-magnetic and hypoallergenic. In press photos, the Breitlight case looks almost like forged carbon, but in the flesh, we think it more resembles the look of typical DLC finishes. The case is water resistant to 100m and it also has a unidirectional bezel, which can be used for timing events. The bezel features four raised tabs, which makes it easy to operate even if you are wearing gloves.The dial’s clever use of font and arrangement keeps all the information highly legible, even with the all the digits on the dial. The Breitling Colt Skyracer dial has a matte black finish marked by large Arabic numeral hour markers. The large hour markers are actually painted on the dial, but done so with a shadow effect that gives the markers the illusion of depth. It also prevents the dial from looking too flat and uninteresting.

Around the hour markers is a railroad-style minutes track, with every fifth minute marked. And on the inside of the hour markers, there are additional 24-hour markings – very handy if you ever need to quickly reference military times. At 3 o’clock, the date window is nicely executed with the date wheel matching the color of the dial. The sword-style hour and minute hands are thick and lumed for night legibility. The seconds hand stretches all the way to the railroad minutes track and has a striking red tip.Making busy dials highly legible is actually something of a Breitling specialty, and we have seen them achieve this feat over and over again, on their Navitimers especially, and that is no different for the Breitling Replica Watches Colt Skyracer. This is one highly legible watch, which is exactly what a tool watch should be.

The movement of the watch is probably the most contentious for a lot of watch snobs because the Breitling Colt Skyracer has a quartz movement. But this is no ordinary quartz movement; this is a COSC chronometer-certified, thermocompensated caliber Cheap Breitling Replica 74 SuperQuartz movement. What does this all mean? For a start, it is said to be accurate to -/+ 10 seconds a year, which is far better than regular quartz watches which are typically only accurate to 15 odd seconds a month. To view this from another perspective, even the most accurate and precise of mechanical movements are usually only accurate to 1 or 2 seconds a day. In addition to accuracy, the battery has a life of eight years. Clearly, Breitling’s SuperQuartz movements are nothing like your run-of-the-mill quartz movements.

All things considered, there is a whole lot to like about the Breitling’s new Colt Skyracer. It has a no-nonsense design, a light and strong case featuring an interesting new material, adequate water-resistance, a highly legible dial, a unique strap that doubles up as a ruler, and it is equipped with a highly accurate SuperQuartz movement. Cheap Breitling traditionalists are going to balk at the idea of a quartz movement, but hey, this isn’t any ordinary quartz movement.

Reviewing the New-Look Breitling Colt

Breitling’s modern take on the decades-old Colt is true to the original, with features that have become hallmarks of the brand. Here’s a hands-on review of the new-look Breitling Colt.
The new Colt Automatic is similar to Colt Superocean, which debuted in the mid-1990s and retained several years of collection. The new Colt replicates the old model of the rotatable crown with both sides of the protector, the pilot-style Arabic numerals and a wide unidirectional bezel, with a quarter of a quarter with a notch and raised cursors The These cursors improve the grip of the baffle, even with gloves can easily rotate. They have become the characteristics of Cheap Breitling Replica. In the new Colt, these marks are just engraved on the satin bezel, the oblique side tilted outward. The baffle clicks 120 steps compared to the 60 notches on the Coulter Super Ocean baffle, although the additional steps are not necessary for diving start time settings. The new Colt automaton also repeats Superocean’s 24-hour scale and a rare 1/100-hour scale, known as the “Aerospace Centennial Scale”.

Colt Auto’s 200m water resistance is lower than the early model of 1000 meters depth level, but still for the divers’s watch provides a lot of water resistance. A solid stainless steel case, double-sided insulated back helps keep the watch intact dive. Professional III stainless steel bracelet with safety lock and folding buckle, hinge open on one side. Bracelet, professional III, can be adjusted in the buckle, or by removing the threaded connection at both ends of the buckle. Cheap Breitling can also be worn on a leather strap, or worn on a marine racing driver or diver rubber strap. Hour and second on the railroad track. The slender second hand with arrows has the same length as the straight line and the minute hand. The tip of the hour hand extends far enough to reach the inner edge of the hour index at 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock, which is larger than the rest. The hour and minute hands on the bezel, the index and the direction point will be bright green in the dark. The arrow on the second hand is prompted by the skull so that when the glowing time indicator is swept away, the green light is allowed to illuminate.

Due to the clarity of the watch, minimalist style and non-reflective coating on both sides of the crystal, the time is obvious. The Breitling Replica Watches gray hour mark and the background of the hand contrast dial are bold contrast, which in our test model is blue. The dial is decorated with brand logo, model name and waterproof information. The date is displayed in the window at 3 o’clock. In order to accommodate the window and its frame, the 24-hour scale number 15 moves toward the center, and there is no hour index at 3 o’clock. These adjustments do not affect daytime or nighttime readability. Since the 1990s, Colt Superocean has also adopted a similar format.
