Breitling - Colt Collection 2011

COLT Frontrunner
The same spirit but a new look. Breitling has entirely redesigned its Colt model, a symbol of sturdiness, reliability and performance. A sculptural model carved in steel, the new Colt turns heads with its original styling clearly built for action, achievements and thrills. With its solid construction and its water resistance to 300 meters (1,000 ft) or 500 meters (1,650 ft), it establishes itself as an exceptionally sporty model, a champion and natural frontrunner. Its originality begins with the bezel featuring a taut, sophisticated shape and stamped numerals, and continues with the case echoing the same outline. The dials are adorned with new rounded numerals exclusively designed for this model, with rhythmical motifs and with a play on colors. The steel bracelet reinforces the unique character of this fresh, youthful and dynamic design, while ensuring optimal comfort and sturdiness.

Available in three versions endowed with strong and distinctive characters, including a chronograph and a ladies’ watch, the new Colt is equipped with SuperQuartz™ movements that are chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), like all Breitling movements.

Reno, Nevada. Every year in September, an array of original planes converge on Stead Airport to take part in one of the world’s great aviation venues: the famous Reno pylon races. Flying at dizzying speeds, these aircraft face off on circuits traced out in the desert, just a few feet off the ground. Their motto: “Fly low, go fast, turn left.” As a partner of all the fi nest hours in aviation, Breitling is the main sponsor of this event that is unique in the world – thereby pursuing its mission to perpetuate the competitive spirit, the taste for performance and the fi erce quest for victory.

Equipped with a Breitling SuperQuartz™ movement ten times more accurate than ordinary quartz, the Colt Chronograph is water-resistant to a depth of 300 meters (1,000 ft). It features a 1/10th of a second display, a split-second hand and a fast timezone-change system that avoids any loss of precision in counting the minutes. On the design side, the generous 44 mm diameter perfectly highlights the powerful and refi ned style of the new Colt with its case featuring alternating polished and satin-brushed surfaces and its bezel carrying original numerals.

For all devotees of top-fl ight achievements, Breitling has equipped the Colt 44 with the best of its electronic technology in the form a SuperQuartz™ caliber ten times more accurate than standard quartz movements.
