The machinery inside a watch that keeps things ticking is called the movement or a caliber. A synonym of size, the word ‘calibre’, first used as a watchmaking term in 1715, originally referred to the build of a watch movement—the layout, dimensions, shape, and size of the wheels, barrels, bridges and so on. Today the word is a substitute for movement, the complete mechanism with the mainspring, escape wheel, bridges, gear train, and other components, including the rotor in automatic watches. Calibers are either mechanical or quartz-based. While the latter is powered mostly by a battery, the former can either be manual winding or self-would by an oscillating mass or rotor.
ABOUT THE BREITLING COLT COLLECTION
An endeavor to make classic timepieces for the armed forces expanded into the ever-accessible Breitling Colt collection in the 1980s. The novelty of the Colt series lies in the quintessentially Breitling features incorporated into these timekeepers. Reliability and sturdiness have become synonymous with this line of luxury time-pieces. This is quintessentially a military watch.
The Breitling Colt offers some exclusive features that are distinctive to the Colt collection. With the signature Breitling feature, the broad unidirectional rotating bezel with a satin-brushed finish and engraved hour markers with 4 rider tabs; the Breitling Colt collection assumes a contemporary and unique look for the models. Another feature classic to Colt timepieces is the large and stylish screw-locked crown on a polished steel case. The models are generally water resistant to 200 meters (660 ft). A circular raised motif on the dial with the luminescent hour-markers makes for an eye-catching collection. The Breitling Colt collection is popular in Volcano Black, Mariner Blue and Stratus Silver colors painted on the dial. The satin-brushed steel bracelet may be replaced with a rubber or leather strap, according to the wearer’s choice. The new Colt model in the Colt 2014 collection features a stunning SuperQuartz movement reputed to be ten times more accurate than standard Quartz.
2014 saw a revamp of the Breitling Colt collection with the launch of four enterprising additions, a Quartz chronograph model, a Colt Quartz model, Colt Lady model, and a Colt Automatic. Reaching out to give a fresh tug to the original military spirit, these time-pieces are incorporated with all the features a true Breitling watch stands for.
