Breitling Colt GMT Automatic 40mm - Black/Grey Dial - 2006 -Box and Papers - Model Ref: A32350
A Handsome Breitling Colt GMT Automatic Model Reference A32350, with a Stylish Black/Grey Dial, Issued in 2006 and Supplied with its Orginal Box and Papers and a Vintage Watch Specialist 12 Month Warranty.
The Breitling Colt collection was introduced in the 1980s and intended, as were its predecessors, the Breitling Navitimer and Breitling Chronomat, as military watches before winning over a broad audience through its sturdiness, reliability and its readability.
It quickly became a cult favourite and production boomed until the 2000s, when it saw its manufacture updated to cutting-edge standards in 2006 in the form of the Colt II, featuring an automatic movement. The rotating bezel and the chapter and track rings are designed to allow for distance and speed calculations on the fly, making for a sparser dial than many pilot's watches, ideal for everyday wear. The Colt has since been discontinued completely and has become very collectable.
What’s On Offer
This example of the GMT with a black/grey concentric dial is in superb condition and shines a myriad of greys and blacks in different light conditions. The dial boasts large applied Roman numerals on the hour, a brilliant white outer minute track, a date wheel at 3 o'clock, pencil hands with luminous inserts and a punch of colour on the red-tipped central second's hand.
The stylish yet sporty dial is encapsulated underneath mineral crystal and the broad unidirectional rotating bezel with a satin-brushed finish and engraved hour markers is adorned with four rider tabs – a Breitling signature feature – ensuring excellent handling as well as enhanced protection of the sapphire crystal which is glare-proof on both sides. The crown is screw-locked and reinforced for extra durability and is undeniably designed to excel in terms of both form and function.
This now-discontinued Breitling Colt is still a very worthy addition to any collection and has become a collectable timepiece within the brand's historical back catalogue. The watch is supplied with its original box and paperwork and a spare leather strap with Breitling deployant clasp.
