Breitling is a demanding one for me. I have for long appreciated the technology that goes into their watches and the total quality all that results in — I have, however, never dropped in that deep, relentless love with any of the designs so far. That may be over today, as I saw the Breitling Colt 44 Automatic Replica Watches hands-on this season in Baselworld, and at last I could say: this is it.
The devil is in the details, and the situation is no different this time around . Pieces like people in the SuperAvenger and also the Bentley collab’ collections constantly defeated me (not at the most positive manner ) with their designs and, by the start, steered me away from being able to enjoy them on a finer level. Even the Breitling Colt 44 automatic forum replica watch may share a virtually identical case design as the Avenger, yet the former, with its 44mm case and, to my eyes a great deal more fortunate proportions, somehow allowed me to approach it as a watch, rather than as a brassy saucer that occurs to tell the moment. Sorry.
The Breitling Colt is nevertheless unmistakably Breitling, don’t get me wrong — and that is an extremely important element to it. The chunky bezel, even chunkier case, masculine proportions, and busy dial fail to drop a single connection from the Breitling DNA. I just feel it is Breitling toned down to a degree at which it is easier to love — instead of when it is turned up to 11.
Inside the Breitling Colt Chronograph Automatic is your caliber B13, which is a COSC certified version of the ETA 7750. Twelve-hour chronograph, date, and operating seconds is the ever-green feature set it offers, and that added guarantee of accuracy (somewhere between -4/+6 seconds per day) is a welcome addition. It’s wonderful to have brains to decide on the beauty.
Speaking of beauty, let’s see where this is coming from. The size isn’t anything to write home about; at 44mm wide, it will be considered rather big by many — unless you have bigger wrists, of course. And really, the Breitling Colt 44 automatic blue replica watch looks big, and yet it seems comfortable on this blue rubber strap, that provides subdued, non-branded looks paired with decent wearing comfort.
The great news is that the Breitling Colt Chronograph can be purchased on numerous other straps — and with a 22mm lug-to-lug width, there’s an endless number of aftermarket alternatives. The strap options from Breitling colt 44 automatic caliber 17 imitation watch comprise leather straps in five different colors, a metal bracelet, or 3 different rubber straps. More importantly, it may come with a black or blue dial with white sub-dials, or even a panda dial with black sub-dials onto white. Blue is quite much”in,” and that I could only be tempted by the panda alternative.
The counterpoint to each of these small details is an instance that offers an intriguing blend of angular and curved design components. On the other hand, the crown guards, the four bigger segments, and the smaller pole markings of the uni-directional diver’s bezel (a slightly more unusual but trendy match with the chronograph function) bring in certain angular design elements, just in order to conserve the Breitling Colt Chronograph Automatic imitation watch from looking like it’s melting away with all those curves round it.
Beyond the particulars of the dial itself, the case is also of very large quality: it just feels super strong out of step one, and also what helps a fantastic deal in attaining this is it has a certain depth to both its shiny and brushed surfaces which (while, of course, not exclusive to the bit ) I wish I could see more often on other watches.
The Breitling Colt Automatic movement imitation watch is certainly nothing crazy fresh, possibly in terms of layout, or in terms of more technical specifics. It is, nevertheless, what I find to be a rather strong package of all of what causes Breitling fascinating — for me, at the least. And while it may certainly use an in-house motion, that would bump up the cost — and servicing prices — substantially. Seen here, on the rubberized band, the Breitling Colt Chronograph Automatic (mention A1338811) is priced at $4,800. breitling.com
