  • Breitling Skyracer: A Watch for True Adventurers

    Dedicated to thrill seekers and adrenalin junkies (you know who you are), the new Breitling Colt Skyracer, the newest generation of the now-iconic Colt series, features an avant-garde case in black Breitlight, ensuring it’s as suited to the office as it is to the trail.

    Named for MXS-R “Skyracer”, the high-performance plane flown by aerobatics rising star Mika Brageot in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship, the new rendition of the Colt maintains its military-inspired lines but with the addition of state-of-the-art technical assets; a 45-mm case made from Breitlight, a material 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, yet significantly harder, encases a Breitling Caliber 74 thermos-compensated SuperQuartz movement, which promises to be ten times more accurate than standard quartz, and is chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute).

    A champion of legibility, the Skyracer’s dial features white luminescent hands and indications against a jet-black background, as well as red accents reminiscent of aircraft instrument panels, all of which is protected by sapphire crystal glareproofed glass on all sides. Equipped with a rotating rider tab bezel serving to memorize times and a dial with an additional 24-hour (military) scale, the Colt Skyracer is water-resistant to 100 m and is presented with an exclusive black rubber strap bearing various measurement scales that are useful to adventurers of all kinds. www.breitling.com
