Breitling Colt Skyracer

You might not guess just how high-tech the Colt Skyracer is upon first viewing. The blacked-out 45mm case is made from a material Breitling calls Breitlight, which is 3.3x harder than titanium yet is 5.8x lighter than steel. It's also incredibly resistant to scratches, corrosion, magnetic fields, and is also anti-allergenic. 

Inside the watch is a thermocompensated SuperQuartz movement, which is said to be ten times more accurate than standard quartz and is also COSC-certified. It also features a rotating rider tab bezel, 24-hour military scale, 8 year battery life, 100m water-resistance, 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 scales on the strap, and a reinforced construction that protects the watch against damaging shocks.
