Description
Without the gloss and shimmer, timepieces are just tiny machines many use as tools. Even though an entire luxury market has been built around such, many still buy them for the functions rather than the design. For those types of clients, Breitling caters to them with their Colt Skyracer. A COSC-certified chronometer, this model has all the innovative functions one looks for in a contemporary timepiece. While it may not be their best-looking item, its technicalities give it its money’s worth.

With all the refineries in the luxury watchmaking business, many have forgotten that timepieces are also tools. In essence, they’re like any other machine, only that the luxury retail industry has made them flashier and glossier. Despite the attention mostly given to their design and aesthetics, a watch’s function is doubly important. Many modern timepieces emphasized this, but none more so than Breitling’s Colt Skyracer.

Pros

Breitling’s Colt Skyracer boasts a COSC-certified chronometer, making it a standard among quartz and mechanical watches of its kind. It’s said that any watch that is COSC-certified is likely to exhibit extreme accuracy, making this particular model all the more valuable. With its carbon casing and construction, the watch is designed for everyday usage. One can wear this outdoors, while playing sports, or in harsh weather conditions, and it will still come out pristine and working like a charm.

Cons

This watch is definitely a tool watch for the working man, but it’s markets among luxury timepieces. In this exclusive market, design reigns supreme and this model lacks value in that department. In terms of materialization, there much to go around concerning this model as it’s constructed for the sake of everlasting durability. The watch is as industrial as one can get, which may make its retail performance in the luxury timepiece market suffer quite a bit.
