Breitling enhances its Colt collection of timepieces with a brand-new model dedicated to thrill-seekers, the Colt Skyracer. Featuring an avant-garde case in Breitlight and an ultra-technical black look, the watch 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 state-of-the-art model Colt Skyracer integrates reliable technical assets with an original design. Its 45 mm case in Breitlight is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder. Breitlight 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.
The watch is powered by a thermocompensated SuperQuartz movement, ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute). The dial features white luminescent hands and indications that stand out against the black background, red accents reminiscent of instrument panels and a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. It boasts 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 Breitling 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.
