By TLex Breitling has redesigned its Colt collection for 2014. The new Colt’s design harks back to 80s Colt that was purpose-built for the military and so is, once again a more simple and understated watch.
The new Colt comes in a range of four models; two sizes – 3 x 44mm or 1 x 33mm. There are four movements - a C.O.S.C certified automatic mechanical movement or one of three C.O.S.C certified, thermocompensated SuperQuartz calibers, which are said to be ten times more accurate than a standard quartz!
This is the Colt Chronograph, which is powered by the Breitling Caliber 73, a C.O.S.C certified, thermocompensated SuperQuartz with a fast time-zone adjustment, a 1/10th of a second chronograph, 60-minute and 12-hour totalizers with split times (split-second hand) and a calendar.
Its 44mm case is in steel and is water-resistant to 200m (660 ft). It features: a large screwdown crown with side reinforcements, a unidirectional ratcheted rotational divers bezel and a Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.
The dial with its fine circular raised motif is available in either: Volcano black, Mariner blue or Stratus silver. Straps include: a steel bracelet, a leather band, a rubber Ocean Racer or a rubber Diver Pro/Professional.
