Colt Skyracer fromBreitling 09/02/2017

Breitling Presentation:

The Colt expresses its youthful, dynamic and winning spirit in a model dedicated to thrill-seekers, featuring an ultra-light and ultra-sturdy case made in Breitlight® (a world-first) and a resolutely technical black look. Code name: Skyracer, like the plane flying the Breitling colors in the fabulous Red Bull Air Race. This all-comers champion is also distinguished by its exclusive removable rubber strap bearing various measurement scales that are useful to adventurers of all kinds.

Now, i’m not quite sure I like this Skyracer as much as I like the look of Breitlings earlier Avenger Hurricane release, but the stealthy black dial and bezel do appeal to me.

Not quite sure what’s going on with the strap though, it kind of looks like there’s some sort of ruler scale printed on there!

Hoping to get my hands on one soon so check back soon for a small review and some real life photos.
