Chronomat Colt Automatic 41 / Breitling


For this Baselworld 2018 refresh, the format remains unchanged, with a 41mm steel case sporting a wide steel bezel, chunky lugs, and the option of either the Pilot steel bracelet or a black leather strap. The design is nicely utilitarian, with a simple, legible, and balanced dial, with long hands, and a pop of red on the arrowhead tip of the seconds hand. Just as sport-ready as it looks, the Colt has an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, screw down crown, a solid steel caseback, and 200 meters water resistance. With a fuss-free and nicely-executed date function at three, the Colt remains a very solid everyday sports watch. The Chronomat Colt Automatic 41 uses the ETA-based Breitling 17 movement (base, ETA 2824) with time and date, and a power reserve of around 40 hours. Priced at $3,240 on a leather strap, or $3,620 on the Pilot steel bracelet shown in these photos, the Colt will not be without fierce competition from all sides — via Hodinkee
