Breitling Adds Two Models to Colt Collection
Luxury watchmaker Breitling originally launched the military-inspired Colt collection back in the 1980s with the intention of making the line a limited edition strictly for the armed forces. Since then, the Colt collection’s stunning design combined with its sturdiness and ease of use have led to popularity with the general watch-buying public.
Now Breitling has expanded the collection with the addition of the Colt 36 and the Chronograph Automatic. These new models are currently available only in the Middle East and were launched with an appropriately military-themed event in Dubai, where guests of Breitling were transported by helicopter and given a lesson in handling firearms.
The Colt Chronograph Automatic is a 44mm timepiece powered by a self-winding movement and styled with a unidirectional rotating bezel, engraved hour markers and satin-brushed finishes. This model is available in four versions including a quartz chronograph and one for the ladies. Buyers may choose from black, blue or silver dials that feature a raised circular motif, oversized hands and luminescent hour markers.
The Breiting Colt 36 model is strictly for the ladies, with its 36mm diameter and mother-of-pearl dials. Buyers may customize this timepiece by choosing from steel bracelets or smooth leather straps with a fine wave motif available in a variety of colors. A diamond-set bezel is optional.
The Colt 36 is designed for the woman of adventure with a screw-locked crown that is water-resistant to 660 feet. The dial is extremely readable with its luminescent hands, hour markers and numerals, all guarded by a glare-proofed sapphire crystal.
Aed Adwan of Breitling Middle East said this about the new Colt models: “Breitling’s passion began and remains in aviation and providing instruments for professionals. This is a brand for those with an appetite for excitement and pushing the boundaries of life. Our watches offer uncompromising performance or precision with styling that caters to men and women.”
