Colt GMT+

The world is its horizon, performance is its universe

The Watch Quote™ - January 30th, 2010



In this version equipped with a new integrated rubber strap, the Colt GMT+ by Breitling is resolutely geared towards originality, style and power on the wrist. Exactly the kind of assets that are bound to appeal more strongly than ever to pilots, travelers and divers.



Founded in the very same year that coordinated universal time standard was established (1884), and a well- established partner of world aviation, Breitling has consistently provided models enabling simultaneous read-off of the time in several parts of the globe, such as the famous Unitime introduced in the 1950s. The Colt GMT+ is a particularly striking example of this expertise. In addition to local time, this selfwinding watch displays another timezone by means of a second hour hand with a red triangular tip, combined with a 24-hour graduation on the inner bezel ring. This ultra-readable and extremely practical system serves to tell day from night at first glance, and thus avoid disturbing someone across the world during their sleep. The Colt GMT+ is not only distinguished by its innate functionality and sturdiness, but also by its distinctive design that is at once sporty, elegant and contemporary, reflecting a universe dedicated to performance. The bezel is adorned with raised numerals and hour markers, highlighted by the contrast between polished and satin-brushed surfaces. The dynamic dial features large stamped Arabic numerals and a concentric-line motif. The exclusive new rubber strap fits seamlessly into the case while accentuating its sleek lines; it is fitted with a pushbutton-operated seamless clasp and an extension piece that is adjustable in a few seconds.

The Colt GMT+ is thus equally at ease on all five continents and also dives confidently into oceans the world over thanks to an admirable degree of water resistance guaranteed to depths of 500 meters (1,660 ft). These aquatic virtues are emphasized by the graduated scale marking off the first 15 minutes on the unidirectional rotating bezel. This model is equipped with a mechanical movement that is chronometer-certified – as indeed are all the movements gravitating within the Breitling universe.
