On the right side, a protected screw-down signed crown. A unidirectional 60-minute bezel has raised screws around its edge to give you some surface to grip, deep engraving and raised 15, 30 and 45-minute sections make this undoubtedly a Breitling Colt. Its flat scratch-resistant sapphire crystal AR coated is recessed adding some protection against knocks. A black matte dial has an outer minute track surrounding applied Arabic numerals coated in lume above smaller 24-hour Arabic numerals adding a nice contrast to the dial At 3 o’clock a framed date window. Broad fence hands and a second hand with a red square tip are filled with luminescence. At 12 o’clock we have the Breitling Wings motif and “Colt Chronometre” “500M/1650FT” printed at 6 o’clock.

Personal Note

This Breitling Colt Quartz Black 38mm is a seriously great value proposition, this example especially being from 2004 with its box and paperwork plus the condition is fantastic for nearly 20 years old! Insane to think that's how long ago 2004 is... I wouldn't hesitate adding this to your collection, the design is great and the fit and feel on the wrist is perfect.


The Brand

Breitling was established in 1884 by Leon Breitling in the Swiss Jura Mountains. In 1915 Gaston Breitling introduced a pusher at 2 o’clock to start, stop and reset the chronograph. Leon later moved the reset to a pusher at 4 o’clock. During 1939 Breitling shipped a huge quantity of chronographs to the Royal Air Force. During the war with Germany surrounding Switzerland Leon and some friends created a makeshift runway near their factory. Planes would use the car's headlights as a guide to land. Once on the ground, they were quickly loaded, taking off before the Germans knew what was going on. They introduced the “Navitimer” a navigation computer in 1952 used to calculate a flight plan. In 1969 they collaborated with Heuer, Burne, and Dubois-Depraz on a top-secret project called Project 99. Together they developed one of the first self-winding chronograph movements. Breitling stands for high precision, outstanding performance, and functionality. During the early days of space exploration, Lt. Commander Scott Carpenter went around the earth three times whilst wearing a modified Navitimer. In 2017 they were sold to CVC Capital Partners, Europe's largest private equity firm.
