Breitlight this Colt Skyracer is the lightest “big watch” I ever tried on. Including the rubber bracelet, the watch barely reaches 50 grams, the type of weight I would expect from a small ultra-thin dress watch. All in, the Breitling Colt Skyracer Replica Watches weighs 54.6 grams, versus 49g for the Richard Mille RM-035 for instance.
The Breitling Replica Watches SuperQuartz caliber B74 is not the in-house movement that you might think from its name. The B74 is indeed the excellent Flatline 955.652, manufactured by ETA. At 2.5mm it is a svelte movement, only reaching 4.5mm with the battery installed, which allows the Colt Skyracer to be unexpectedly thin; even with the bezel, the case thickness measures at only 13mm.
The water-resistance is “only” 100 meters, a depth you obviously hope to never reach with your aircraft. Finally, the bezel is also true to Fake Breitling Watches DNA, with the characteristic rider tabs every 15 minutes; the design of those was patented by Ernest Schneider in the 1980s for the rebirth of the Chronomat. So overall, it is obvious where this watch is coming from, but one might regret that its design did not go one step further from what you have expected from any Breitling Colt.
Nostalgia is the key element that made me enjoy this watch so much. As a Breitling enthusiast, you have to pay attention to the 1980s, a decade when Swiss Breitling Replica Watches not only managed to survive, but launched some of the hottest watches of the time. In Paris at that time, for instance, the newly released Chronomat suddenly became a must-have, and singer Serge Gainsbourg was prominently wearing his stainless steel Navitimer 81600, which marked the relaunch of the Navitimer in a more classic 41mm round case, with a manual-wound Lemania chronograph caliber to boot.
Interestingly, even the smart strap system is derived from the patent CH661173 that Breitling received in 1985, which was already based on full lugs and springless bars. The lugs of the Breitling Replica Watches Swiss Movement carry the strap, while the strap bar fits into a notch on the inner part of the lugs. This allows for a quick strap changing set-up, where no spring bar tool is needed, and allows you to quickly use the scale on each part separate from the watch head.
