Initially developed for the armed forces, Colt Quartz was the original model behind the entire Colt range and its reputation for reliability, precision and functionality. It has retained the essential characteristics from this military past, including its sturdy construction ensuring effective protection against shocks, or its water resistance guaranteed to 1,650 feet (500 meters). Placing functionality above else, the Colt is equipped with an ergonomic screw-locked crown that is particularly easy to handle. It offers exemplary readability thanks to the contrast between the oversized hands and the dial. On an aesthetic level, the Colt Quartz is distinguished by the finishing of its case, featuring lines that are highlighted by the contrast between polished and satin-brushed surface. Its high-precision SuperQuartz™ movement is powered by an eight-year battery, representing an additional guarantee of reliability for the sturdiest of the Breitling watches.
