A feminine expression of the Breitling spiritBASELWORLD 2015 Preview: The BREITLING Colt 36
A new 36 mm diameter, new mother-of-pearl dials, the Colt by Breitling ticks to ladies’ time while maintaining its legendary sturdiness and readability. For women wishing to combine elegance with performance.
Is Breitling a men’s world? Not only… A specialist of instruments for professionals, the privileged partner of aeronautics also interprets this spirit of excellence in feminine models imbued with distinctive character. Witness the new Colt 36. With its original lines and its 36 mm diameter designed to grace all wrists, this sporty and refined watch is born to share an active life. The polishing on the steel case strikes an elegant contrast with the satin-brushing on the bezel and bracelet. The black, blue or silver dials are adorned with a circular engraved décor. The palette is complemented by two natural mother-of-pearl dials – one of which is enhanced with diamond hour-markers. The bracelet and straps come in a choice of steel or smooth leather, as well as a highly exclusive leather featuring a fine wave motif and available in a broad range of colors. All versions are available with an optional diamond-set bezel. While the Colt 36 is radiantly beautiful, it shines above all in terms of its performances. The case with screw-locked crown is water-resistant to 200 m (660 ft): a rare feat for a ladies’ watch.
The ultra-readable dial with luminescent hands, numerals and hour-markers is protected by a sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides. The unidirectional rotating bezel is equipped with four rider-tabs – a Breitling signature – ensuring excellent maneuverability. The officially chronometer-certified SuperQuartz™ movement offers a degree of precision ten times superior to that of standard quartz. An authentic Breitling in the feminine mode – and the favorite watch of the reigning world aerobatics champion Aude Lemordant.
