The Colt family: functional, precise and sporty
The Breitling Colt family
is one of the classic series of the brand in whose design yet today its military origin can be seen. Like its siblings, the Chronomat
It was originally intended as a tool watch. It scored with a very readable dial and great usability. The Breitling Colt's ancestor is the Colt Military, which was released in the 1980s and also quickly gained followers outside military circles. The Colt watches are, like many other Breitling watches, equipped with four distinctive tabs on the bezel
. In 2011 Breitling started a controversy when the company waived in an attempt to redesign the iconic tabs. Many lovers of the series couldn’t find sympathy for this innovation and so the riders made 2014 their comeback on the bezel and are also part of the design of the current collection.
The Breitling Colt is now also very popular as a diver's watch: It can withstand water up to a depth of 200 m diving. Thanks to its stop function, it is the ideal companion for every professional diver and amateur sportsman. Most models of the Breitling Colt
are ideal for Beginners. Over the years they have been produced in a variety of variations. The watch is available with different complications, in different case sizes and with a variety of bracelets.

It is the ideal companion for every occasion.

is the Ladies version, which, thanks to the smaller case size, also fits narrow wrists. The Colt Quartz
