Breitling Colt Skyracer Series Rubber Strap Black Dial Replica Watches

Can a $2,000 plastic Breitling replica watches with a quartz movement ever be a Value Proposition? The answer seems obvious, until you consider the Breitling Colt Skyracer. Yes, there’s plastic; yes, it’s quartz, yet it turns these apparent drawbacks into assets, starting with the amazing lightness of the case material. This is what strikes you at first: the substantial 45mm case weighs only 34 grams, easily half of what you would expect. And the Chronomètre mention on the dial tells you another part of the story; the quartz caliber is a pretty special one.

Breitlight is the cryptic name of the case material; not much can be found about it, but Breitling emphasizes that it is almost six times lighter than steel and three times lighter than titanium. Needless to say, you can tell immediately on the wrist: this Colt Skyracer is the lightest “big watch” I ever tried on (save for a Richard Mille “Baby Nadal” RM-035 with which I irrevocably fell in love, but this is a tale for another time). 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 Colt Skyracer weighs 54.6 grams, versus 49g for the Richard Mille RM-035 for instance.

Breitling fake lunimous watches trademarked the Breitlight name back in October 2015, and initially introduced it the following year on a 50mm Avenger Hurricane, with a price tag fourfold over this Skyracer. A smaller Avenger Hurricane was then unveiled, its diameter reduced to “only” 45mm (yes, modern Breitlings do tend to be on the bigger side). This is the very first time that this advanced material has trickled down to Breitling’s entry-level family, the Colt.

Describing it as a molded plastic polymer would be technically accurate, but slightly underwhelming since the term plastic is a pretty generic one. In a more tech-savvy parlance, it is an isotropic thermoplastic composite with (very likely) short carbon fibers as reinforcement to the matrix. Besides its impressive lightness, it’s also antimagnetic and hypoallergenic. On the Skyracer, it has a matte finishing; interestingly, Breitling did not apply for a patent, just a trademark, so one can assume that the formula or the composite itself was supplied by an external party who still holds the IP.

Looking at its quartz movement copy Breitling does not grant any respite from the geeky side of things; however, it is a big part of the pleasure of reviewing this watch. Like any new Breitling since 1999, the Colt Skyracer is indeed chronometer certified by the COSC, which put in place different norms for quartz calibers than it does for mechanical watches: namely +/- 0.07 seconds per day for quartz. For run of the mill modern quartz movements, you should expect at worst a 15 second variation per month, or what a mechanical chronometer-certified caliber is allowed to achieve in less than a week. You immediately realize the immense accuracy gap between any quartz movement (save it for the chronometer-certified ones) over traditional mechanical movements.

Breitling Colt Skyracer Series Black Dial Waterproof Rubber Strap Replica Watches For Sale

The Breitling rubber strap fake watches industry is facing tough times, and offering more affordable pieces that present a real value proposition for buyers is an obvious way to reach a larger market. For mainstream luxury brands like Breitling, this means more bang-for-buck pieces like the new Colt Skyracer that we have here. In covering the release of the Breitling Colt Skyracer here, we said that it has an “extremely reasonable price” at around $2,000. That’s maybe not quite a steal, but the Breitling Colt Skyracer is a solid, sporty watch for those looking for Breitling quality and brand identity and who are open to the idea of high-end quartz movements.

Like most other watches from the brand, the Breitling Colt Skyracer series replica watches are big, bold, and brash. And that is fitting because this watch is, beyond everything else, a tool watch. It measures 45mm wide and is 13.5mm thick. However, the cool thing about it is that it comes in a black carbon composite case. Breilting calls this carbon material Breitlight, and it is very strong and light. To give you an idea of how light it is, consider this fact: it is 3.3 times lighter than titanium. That is pretty incredible.

Breitlight also has other useful properties. It has “exceptional resistance” to scratches, corrosion, and it is also non-magnetic and hypoallergenic. In press photos, the Breitlight case looks almost like forged carbon, but in the flesh, we think it more resembles the look of typical DLC finishes. The case is water resistant to 100m and it also has a unidirectional bezel, which can be used for timing events. The bezel features four raised tabs, which makes it easy to operate even if you are wearing gloves.

The dial’s clever use of font and arrangement keeps all the information highly legible, even with the all the digits on the dial. The Breitling Colt Skyracer dial has a matte black finish marked by large Arabic numeral hour markers. The large hour markers are actually painted on the dial, but done so with a shadow effect that gives the markers the illusion of depth. It also prevents the dial from looking too flat and uninteresting.

Around the hour markers is a railroad-style minutes track, with every fifth minute marked. And on the inside of the hour markers, there are additional 24-hour markings – very handy if you ever need to quickly reference military times. At 3 o’clock, the date window is nicely executed with the date wheel matching the color of the dial. The sword-style hour and minute hands are thick and lumed for night legibility. The seconds hand stretches all the way to the railroad minutes track and has a striking red tip.
