    Re: New model: Colt Skyracer

    Kind of intrigued. At least interested enough to see where market prices settle (grey, preowned, etc). At the end of the day this does less than my G-shock Rangeman at six times the price. Still...

    Re: New model: Colt Skyracer

    Dropping weight on a watch that in SS weighs well over 150 grams is a great idea but I am not so sure Breitlight is a great idea for a watch in this price range. I suspect marring of the case is going to be significantly more of a problem than with SS, Ti, or Ceramic. Best thing Breitling could do to the Colt is use titanium, reduce the thickness to less than 11mm, keep the diameter at 41mm, provide a WR of 300 meters, and have a clasp design that enables changes in bracelet length without the need to remove the watch from your wrist. Doing this would create a watch the is not to large and not to small in diameter for most male wrists and weighs 100 grams +/- 10 grams depending on wrist size. The new Colt would then be as great a watch as this: Watch Details | certina. BTW, I own a blue Breitling Colt 41mm Stainless Steel SuperQuartz that rarely gets worn because the Certina is so much better. However, I would immediately buy a new Colt made with titanium that has physical characteristics similar to the Certina DS Action Precidrive Titanium I own.

    My dealer confirmed the price to be 19950 SEK which is about 2200 USD. Not sure if a think it's "affordable". But somewhat tempting. It will be lik to see it in flesh!

    Re: New model: Colt Skyracer

    I can see a lot of people sweating at the use of "plastic" in a "high-end" watch, but I suspect they have no problem with a fifteen-grand IWC or Omega whose case is made of mud :)

    I also see that this Colt is cheaper than a luxury steel one, making it the entry-level Breitling.

    The material isn't to my taste either but it is supposed to be more scratch-resistant than steel. A G-Shock sure isn't scratch-resistant in my experience.. anyway, have to wait until someone owns one and tries it out, which isn't going to be on this forum I suspect!

    Re: New model: Colt Skyracer

    Just sold my Tudor and my next watch will be a Breitling. My dealer here (Boulder,CO) stated price at 2,000.00. I am a little hesitant as well to pay "full boat retail" vs. a nice model pre-owned from an AD. Even the steel Colt. They expect it in next month so I guess I'll see it then...

    After taxes just under 2200. Stopped by the Breitling store and considered leaving a deposit but I'll rather wait until Basel finishes that's when store will get stock. Here's the hurricane for Breitlight case material close up.

    As does a Steel Omega at 15 times the price. Or a Patek at 100 times the price. Or a gold Patek at 1,000 times the price. Etc. Reviews are up, timed for Baselworld. Cheaper than the cheapest steel version, and as it's more scratch resistant than steel, it makes an interesting entry-level material of similar weight to titanium, but hardier.

    Also isn't there an AP made of this stuff?
