By TLex As its name suggests the Colt 33 is the baby of Breitling’s Colt line and as such was the last to get a make-over. It replaces the Colt Ocean, which was part of Breitling’s Aeromarine family.
Its 33mm case has a water-resistance of 500metes and is powered by a Breitling Thermo-compensated SuperQuartzTM movement, the Caliber 77, which is an officially certified COSC chronometer. The watch is available with 3 dials black, blue or silver each with a number of strap and bracelet combinations . . .
From BREITLING A super sporty model for elegant women - The sporty, daring and elegant Colt 33 reflects the true nature of the Breitling woman.
It is now interpreted through an original collection combining exclusive new leather straps composing a delightful bouquet of bright colors, a quintessentially feminine expression of the Breitling spirit.
With its extremely original design, its 33 mm diameter and its exceptional technology, the Colt 33 launched in 2011 has conquered the hearts and wrists of all women eager to combine aesthetic appeal with high performance. Breitling is now introducing new versions featuring a highly distinctive look.
The focus is firmly on the range of refined straps in Sahara leather, recognizable by their embossed motif composed of tiny “dunes” along with a palette of fresh and dynamic colors – red, blue, pink, orange and white – echoed on the dials hourmarkers.
The entirely polished case creates a striking contrast that highlights the original shape of the bezel with its satin-brushed surface and its stamped numerals. The glowingly feminine touch may be further accentuated by an optional gemset bezel.
The three large 6, 9 and 12 o’clock numerals with their exclusive design and their rounded contours exquisitely punctuate the hours on the finely gridwork-pattern dials.
On the technical side, this super sporty model displays all the qualities one would expect from a Breitling instrument for professionals, including a SuperQuartzTM movement ten times more accurate than standard quartz and chronometer certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glare proofed on both sides, a screw-locked crown and a sturdy steel case water-resistant to 500 meters (1,650 ft) – a unique feat for a ladies’ watch.
The new Colt 33 with its colorful hour-markers is also available on a triple-link bracelet. This is a collection radiating an unmistakable aura of elegance and performance.
