It was originally intended as a toolwatch. It scored with a very readable dial and great usability. The Breitling Colt´s ancestor is the 1980s released Colt Military, which also gained quickly followers outside the military circles. The Colt watches are, like many other Breitling watches, equipped with the 4 distinctive riders on the bezel. In 2011 Breitling started a
controverse when the company waived in an attempt of a redesign these iconic riders. 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.
