Breitling Colt Skyracer Hands-On

by Kenny Yeo "The watch 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."

I had a Colt years ago and liked it a lot. Mine didn't have a stupid struler though. Just a regular bracelet.

Not my cup of tea; but, for the money I think it is reasonable. COSC uber Quartz movement, Breitling design and should be damn near indestructible.

Luminox can be had for a fraction of the price; but, it still isn't a Breitling. No Luminox Quartz in use can touch this movement. And I love Breitling design. Not worth the price difference for me; but, names matter to folks.

I just noticed that it's a "Breitlite" case.
Meh. For a composite case I'll agree with Kevin. Get the Luminox and pick up a pre- owned Steel Colt with the savings.
