Following the release of the Code Yellow Avenger, Breitling recently launched another limited edition watch – the Blackbird Red Strike. As the name suggests, this new Breitling watch sports a dash of red tones on its black dial. And it has the same dimensions and features of the standard Blackbird. The case of the Breitling Blackbird Red Strike, crafted from stainless steel, is either highly polished or brushed from head to toe. It is fitted with a rotating bezel with 360° graduated scale and the “Blackbird special” faceted pilot bracelet. The front sapphire crystal, the well-constructed crown and pusher buttons , and the solid case back together ensure that the watch is water resistant to 300 meters. As mentioned, the matt black dial is spiced up by bright red hints on some hands and markings. The date is also displayed by red Arabic numerals. Overall, I love this black and red contrast- It looks spetacular. The hour and minute hands and hour markers are filled with luminous subtance to ensure ideal reading in darkness. Except three subsidiary dials, the dial also include a tachometer scale on the inner bezel. Beating inside the Breitling Blackbird Red Strike watch is the Caliber 4 –an in-house made automatic chronograph movement that has been certified by COSC. And faithful to the brand’s standards, the watch is limited to 2,000 pieces. Personally, I find no flaws or hates from this extrordinary watch. I love its classic design ,the awesome color scheme and the sporty feel. It is surely a must-have watch for any loyal Breiting watch enthusiasts.
