Breitling Colt Automatic
Breitling Replica Chronomat Evolution created the Colt in the 1980s. Originally intended for use by the armed forces, the watch developed a wider following in the civilian world and soon established itself as the most accessible Breitling. The Colt features many of the visual cues that give Breitling watches their unmistakable look. The broad unidirectional rotating bezel with a satin-brushed finish and engraved hour-markers features the brand’s trademark rider tabs. These tabs improve the grip on the bezel, making it easy to rotate even when wearing gloves. They also help to protect the glare-resistant sapphire crystal, and they can be used to track elapsed time or to serve as a reminder for a future event.
The Breitling Colt’s 44-mm case is water-resistant to 200 meters. The Colt Automatic is powered by the mechanical Breitling Caliber 17, which is a COSC-certified chronometer. The Colt is available with black, blue and silver dials, and a variety of straps and bracelets. The Breitling Colt Automatic is priced from $3,090.
Breitling Superocean 42
For those who enjoy underwater adventure, Breitling created the Superocean. The look is classic yet modern, and the colorful inner bezels give these timepieces an instantly recognizable look. The inner bezels are available in blue, yellow, red or silver, each with a black dial. There are also two limited editions of 2,000 pieces each, one with an orange inner bezel, and the other with matching blue dial and blue inner bezel.
The Breitling Replica Superocean UK case is milled from a solid block of stainless steel. The final product is 42 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 1,500 meters. (A 44-mm version is also available). The screw-locked crown incorporates twin gaskets to seal out water, and the pressure release valve located in the side of the case at 10 o’clock is a mark of a true professional dive watch. The Breitling Superocean is also powered by the COSC-certified Caliber 17 automatic-winding movement.
The Breitling Superocean 42 is priced from $3,295.
Breitling Aerospace Evo
First launched in 1985, the multi-function Aerospace became the face of Breitling’s SuperQuartz-powered instrument timepieces. The movement, which is 10 times more accurate than a standard quartz oscillator, offers a variety of easy-to-use functions, including a 1/100th of a second chronograph, countdown timer, second time zone, alarm, audible time signal and calendar. All of these are accessed and operated by simply rotating and pressing or pulling the crown. The Aerospace also features a very effective backlight system that is compatible with night vision goggles.
Fashioned from light yet strong titanium, the 43 mm satin-brushed case is water resistant to 100 meters. The caseback includes conversion scales for English and metric measurements.
The new Breitling Replica Aerospace Evo is available with black, blue or gray dials, and comes fitted with a leather, crocodile leather or rubber strap, or a titanium bracelet, priced from $3,460.
