Fitted with the famous black dial that inspired its name, the Blackbird cleverly combines readability with originality. It radiates a distinctive personality for people who love powerful designs. Breitling is now offering it in a new limited edition featuring vivid red accents that accentuate the technical and sporting nature of this exceptional model which brings a complete instrument panel to the wrist.
The totalizer rims, the chronograph central seconds hand and the tachometric scale on the inner bezel are all red, as is the outsized calendar display at 12 o’clock with two separate indicators for the tens and units.
To highlight this daringly modern dial, Breitling has treated the Blackbird Red Strike Limited Edition to a full-polished or satin-brushed finish encompassing the case, the rotating bezel with its 360° graduated scale, and even the “Blackbird special” Pilot bracelet with its faceted profile.
Water-resistant to 300 meters (1,000 ft), this chronograph endowed with a steely character is powered by Breitling Caliber 44, a selfwinding chronograph movement that is chronometer-certified like all the brand’s movements. It is issued in a 2,000-piece worldwide limited edition.
