Move over Avenger Code Yellow. The newest Breitling limited edition definitely takes the cake. The Blackbird Red Strike Chrono is sick, and I mean really sick. I love the standard Blackbird as is, but the new dial with red accents is simply awesome; the contrast between the red and black is perfectly done.
Just like the Avenger Code Yellow, the Blackbird Red Strike will be limited to 2,000 pieces worldwide in both a polished finish and a satin/brushed finish. I would personally go with the satin-finish version since I like my watches to be understated. I would recommend the polished version for those who like to peacock every now and then though…
The only debate I am hearing about the watch is the date window. Should Breitling have opted to keep the double date window for this watch in white, or did they make a good move by changing it to red to match the subdials? I personally think Breitling made the right call, seeing as this is the Red Strike limited edition. I know some others, however, beg to differ.
What do you guys think of the watch? Do you like how the date is showcased in red?
