Breitling watches last year, the company’s entry-level Colt series has been improved, the first Colt in the 20th century, introduced 80 years. Like Chronomat and Navitimer, they value reliability and readability, and Colt is seen as a military watch. Its 24-hour scale, pilot-style dial and wide one-way bezel has been defined Breitling watch a clear appearance. The new series is truly faithful to the original, until the movement. Most new models with quartz movement, which is also consistent with the Colt tradition. We are here to enjoy the only mechanical version, with automatic ETA movement.
Colt has a screw-in crown and a wide one-way bezel.
Colt Superocean, the new Colt replicates the old model of the rotating crown, both sides with protective devices, the flight table style Arabic numerals and wide one-way bezel, the four in the four And a groove and a convex cursor at a time. These cursors improve gripping on the baffle, making it easy to rotate even when wearing gloves. They have become the characteristics of Breitling watches.
On the new Colt watch, the markings are precisely engraved in the satin finished bezel, which is gently tilted downward toward the outer edge. Compared to the 60 hits of the Colt Super-ocean bezel, the new bezel can be clicked 120 times, even if no additional steps are required to set the dive start time. The new Breitling Colt Automatic replica also repeats Superocean’s 24-hour scale and the rare 1 / 100s-hour scale, known as “Aerial One Percent”.
Movement is the Observatory certified ETA 2824-2.
Colt Automatic 200 meters waterproof performance is lower than the 1000 meters of the early models of the depth level, but still for the diving watch provides sufficient water resistance. The sturdy stainless steel case with double-insulated case backs helps keep the watch intact in deep-sea dives. The Professional III stainless steel bracelet features a safety hook and a hinged open folding clasp. The watch can also be worn on a leather strap, or on an Ocean Racer or Diver Pro rubber strap.
Any of these will make the watch weigh less than a 194 gram stainless steel bracelet. (Although relatively heavy, the watch is quite comfortable to wear.) The leather strap is pleasantly soft, but its buttons seem a bit wobbly.
Although hanging under the guise of Breitling Caliber 17, the new Colt movement or ETA 2824-2, slightly modest decoration, but has been certified by the Observatory. During the test, the Colt was almost completely deviated after the mainspring was completely wound up for 24 hours. In the wrist, the watch is only slow for 1 second. This slight delay lasts one day a day, but the deviation of one second falls within the timing tolerance. It is worth noting that, in the dial 24 hours after the operation, the dial up and down the crown when there is a big difference between the two. We also note the difference in amplitude, which drops close to 60 degrees in the span position over the span of the day. This is a big drop, but the average rate is still not affected by the reduction, the overall commendable.
The dial shows all the features the ETA Caliber 2824-2 offers, including hours, minutes, seconds and date, but Colt can perform other functions. The hour ring on the inside is another dimension, calibrated from 13 to 24, reminiscent of Breitling’s tradition as a pilot watch and their standard 24-hour scale. In the dial around the flange, there is a scale will be an hour into 100 units. Each unit, 36 seconds long, is called “industrial” minutes. This type of time measurement has a variety of industrial applications, including the indication of working time. For example, 3 hours and 15 minutes are expressed as 3.25 hours instead of 3:15.
The minutes and seconds are displayed on the railroad tracks. The elongated second hand with the arrow tip is long and straight, and the faceted minute hand has the same length. The tip of the hour hand extends far enough to reach the inner edge of the hour hand at 6 and 9 o’clock. Hours and minutes The pointer, the pointer, and the direction points on the border all glow in bright green in the dark. The arrow tip on the second hand is hollowed out to allow this green light to glow as it sweeps through the glowing hour mark.
Colt has been appealing to consumers for its ruggedness, functionality and excellent readability over the past two decades. By automatically copying these features in the new Colt, Breitling replica watches will have no doubt its popularity forever.
