The SuperQuartz movement is chronometer certified and will be the epitome of sturdiness among the Colt family of Breitling timepieces. Styled following the brand’s rich military heritage, the Colt Chronograph is exceptionally legible, featuring luminescent hour markers and certainly legible chronograph dials.The Breitling Colt household of watches provide exceptional value and a winning fashion in entry-level timepieces from a respected worldwide watchmaker. If you’re trying to find a trustworthy, legible, sturdy watch to wear every single day, we highly suggest looking at a part of the Colt family of timepieces.Can a2,000 plastic watch with a quartz movement be a Worth? The solution seems clear, until you take into account the Breitling Colt Skyracer. Yes, there’s plastic; nonetheless, it’s quartz, yet it turns these obvious drawbacks in to resources, beginning with the amazing lightness of the case material. That is exactly what strikes you first: the large 45mm case weighs just 34 g, easily half what you’d anticipate. Along with the Chronomètre mention about the dial tells you another part of the story; the quartz standard is a fairly special one.Breitlight is that the cryptic title of the case material; not much could be located about it, but Breitling emphasizes it is almost six times lighter than steel and three times lighter than titanium. Needless to say, you are able to tell instantly about the wrist: that Colt Skyracer is the lightest “large watch” I ever tried on (save for a Richard Mille “Baby Nadal” RM-035 with which I irrevocably fell in love, however that really is a tale for another time). Adding the rubber bracelet, the watch hardly reaches 50 grams, the type of weight I would expect from a small ultra-thin apparel watch (as recently measured by Jack). Overall, the Colt Skyracer weighs 54.6 grams, versus 49g for your Richard Mille RM-035 for instance.
Breitling trademarked the Breitlight title back in October 2015, also originally 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 decreased to “only” 45mm (yes, modern Breitlings do tend to be on the bigger side). This is actually the very first time that this innovative material has trickled down to Breitling’s entry-level household, 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’s an isotropic thermoplastic composite with (very likely) brief carbon fibers as reinforcement into the matrix. Apart from its impressive lightness, additionally, it is antimagnetic and hypoallergenic. On the Skyracer, it has a matte finishing; interestingly, Breitling did not put in an application for a patent, only a trademark, so one can assume that the formula or the publication itself was supplied by an external party who still holds the IP.Looking at its quartz movement doesn’t give any respite from the geeky side of thingsnonetheless, it is a big part of the pleasure of reviewing this particular watch. As an example of the mill modern quartz movements, you should expect at worst a 15 second variant a month, or exactly what a mechanical chronometer-certified grade is permitted to achieve in under a week. You immediately realize the immense accuracy gap between any quartz movement (save it for the chronometer-certified ones) more than conventional mechanical motions.
The Breitling SuperQuartz grade B74 is not the in-house motion that you may think from its title. The B74 is the outstanding Flatline 955.652, manufactured by ETA. At 2.5mm it is a svelte motion, just reaching 4.5mm together with the battery installed, which makes it possible for the Colt Skyracer to be unexpectedly thin; even with all the bezel, the situation thickness steps at only 13mm. It is also worth noting that the battery has a strong eight-year life expectancy, and there is an end of life indicator: its next hand will do bigger jumps than 1 minute intervals when the replacement period approaches. But now the big news: this motion offers a guaranteed accuracy under 10 seconds per year, near twenty times better than a “standard” quartz. There’s a good reason for that, and it’s known as a thermistor.As a different thermal sensor, the thermistor holds a crucial place in improving the accuracy of a complex quartz movement (often called HAQ or even HEQ, for High Accuracy Quartz, or High End Quartz). It’s not too much that a vibrating quartz at a “standard movement” isn’t accurate: intrinsically it constitutes an excellent harmonic resonator, with a remarkably steady frequency. However, its oscillations see some variability when its temperature varies. Most quartz crystals are calibrated to perform at greatest around 28℃ (or around 82℉), which will be the temperature within the case when the watch is worn on a human wrist. This explains why manufacturers like Seiko or Citizen urge some normal wear to keep the accuracy of their “standard” quartz calibers. But these very manufacturers (and Omega, ETA, and formerly Rolex) also discovered a more scientific way to account for these temperature changes, in offering thermo-compensated moves.
