Positioned as Breitling’s entry-level watch, the Breitling Colt offers wearers all the technical and aesthetic details fans of Breitling have come to expect in a straightforward and more affordable package. Inspired by a military spirit, the Breitling Colt series includes chronographs and time and date models equipped with either quartz movements or automatic mechanical calibers.
The Breitling quartz watches houses their SuperQuartz movements, which boast ten times the accuracy of traditional quartz calibers. The Breitling Colt Quartz collection offers 44mm sized stainless steel watches with a choice of blue, black, or silver dials bearing oversized luminous numerals and baton style indexes. The unidirectional rotating bezel adds a touch of sportiness while strap options include classic leather, sleek steel, or sporty rubber.
The Colt Chronograph’s 44mm stainless steel case encases the Breitling Caliber 73 SuperQuartz movement within powering the time, date, and chronograph functions. Tough, precise, and reliable, the Breitling Colt Chronograph is water resistant to 200m and is available in a range of dial colors and strap options.
For women, there are the Colt Lady and Colt 36 collections where the former measures 33mm and the latter measures 36mm and both are powered by the SuperQuartz movement. Both series include mother-of-pearl and diamond options for more elegant and precious models.
Both the Breitling Colt Automatic and Breitling Colt Chronograph Automatic collections are equipped with self-winding mechanical movements. The case of the Breitling Colt Automatic measures 44mm and is home to the dynamic dial with large luminescent hands and indexes and date window at 3 o’clock. At the heart of the Colt Automatic is the COSC certified Breitling Caliber 17 beating at a frequency of 28,800 v.p.h. On the other hand, the Breitling Colt Chronograph Automatic is driven by the chronometer-certified Breitling Caliber 13 self-winding chronograph movement with 42 hours of power reserve. The 44mm stainless steel case is outfitted with a large screw-down crown for water resistance to 200m and chrono pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock.
Developed with the Armed Forces in mind, the Breitling Colt watches are a no-nonsense approach to a high-end sports watch. Already positioned at an affordable price point, the secondary market offers even better value with a number of pre-owned Breitling Colt Chronograph watches, used Breitling Colt Quartz models, secondhand Breitling Colt Lady timepieces, and previously owned Breitling Colt Automatic editions available for sale.
