Breitling Chrono Colt Watch

The Breitling Chorno Colt Watch is a Breitling watch from the Colt range of products known for their precision and durability; meaning shock resistance, lateral crown reinforcements, protective push-piece rings, and 20 bars of water resistant. When Breitling designed the Chrono Colt they wanted a watch that could really extend wear and tear while staying strong and reliable.

My favorite feature of the Breitling Chrono Colt watch is not only its ability to deal with short times nearly 1/10th of a second with split times; but also its ability to change time zones so quickly while not changing one second or minute on the dial. To make a Breitling watch like the Breitling Chrono Colt watch, technology and innovation had to work seamlessly together in the Breitling factories and workshops. As a result of the dedication, the Breitling Chrono Colt watch boast some decent technical specifications.

The Breitling Chrono Colt has a Breitling 73 Caliber SuperQuartz movement with a fast-action time zone change (like I described above), and a thermo-compensated quartz electronic movement. The Breitling chronograph can measure up to 1/10th of a second (60 min, 12 hours) with split times. This Breitling watch has a 41.10 mm steel case diameter with a dial aperture calendar, unidirectional and ratcheted bezel, screwed in caseback, and a screw-locked crown.

Finishing off the look of the Breitling watch is your choice of either a Breitling Professional Bracelet in steel or a Breitling leather strap in blue, black, gold, or brown; a Breitling Diver Pro Strap in blue or black; or a Breitling Ocean Racer strap in black or blue.

Breilting for Bentley Mark VI Complications 29 Watch

In the past we have discussed two watches in Breitling for Bentley Serie Mark VI collections; Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Watch and the Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Complications 19 Watch. Today we will take a closer look at the Mark VI Complications 29.

Breitling for Bentley’s Mark VI Complications 29 watch comes in either rose gold or platinum and is made up of approximately 500 parts. The calendar on this Breitling watch is its best feature and it is programmed to feature the date, day, week, month, season, and moon phases while being sensitive to the various leap years. Measuring at 1/4th of a second it is certified by the COSC and includes limited edition pieces only. Only 250 watches were made of the Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Complication 29 Rose Gold Watches and only 100 were made of the platinum.

Besides looks and materials, technically, there is no difference between the different variations of the Breitling for Bentley Mark VI Complications 29. All Breitling watches in the collection have a Breitling Calibre 29B, mechanical self-winding movement, 28,800 vibrations per second, 38 jewels, and 30min and 12 min totalizers.

The case of this Breitling watch can come in rose gold or platinum and feature 100 meters of water resistance, screw-locked crown, glareproofed and convex sapphire crystal on both sides, and a 42 mm diameter. The Breitling dials are available in Silver Storm and Burnt Oak, and the straps are available in Barenia leather or crocodile leather.

Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono

With this Breitling watch, Avenger Seawolf Chrono, you could possible journey to the center of the earth and back with no damage.  It is the only chronograph to be water resistance and operational at 3,300 feet or 1,000 meters. Normally, at those depths water would trickle through the crown and the watch would probably explode… well, maybe just crack.

Exploding and cracking are definitely not in this Breitling watch’s vocabulary, because it can’t be touched.  Literally, it can’t be touched.  If the wearer presses buttons and twist things around, they have no connection to the movement unless they break the watch apart. So the movement is totally isolated due to a magnetic technology developed by Breitling.

Not only is keeping water out important, but saving your eyes is another great quality of the Breitling Avenger Seawolf Chrono.  It has large numbers littering the dial as well as oversized hour, minute, and second hands…all luminescent for those dark moments.

Additional technical data includes a Breitling 73 caliber, thremocompensated SuperQuartz movement, 1/10th second chronograph (…60 minutes, 12 hours), dial aperture calendar, steel case, unidirectional and ratcheted bezel, screw-locked crown, and cambered sapphire crystal glareproofed on both sides.
