Can anyone please tell me the exact differences between the two Breitling Blackbird Windriders A4435912/B811 and A4435910/B811 ?
Can anyone still give me a tip where I might have the chance to still grab a new one?

I'm not sure about the difference between the two reference numbers. Could potentially be the polished version versus the brushed version since this watch was released with two different finishes on the case and bracelet. But don't hold me to that.

The chances of finding a brand new one I would have to assume are pretty much zero at this point. I bought mine in 2011 and it was already a discontinued model at that point. If you can find one, it's an amazing watch and after 10 years of owning the black eye blue version I still love it. There were some limited editions released after this version was discontinued such as the red strike which had the red date numbers. But the reference you are looking for has been discontinued for probably ten or eleven years now.

So the A4435912/B811 is the polished version while the A4435910/B811 is the brushed version?

The 7th and 8th characters are the finish code so it's definitely the case finish. I'm not sure which of the 10 or 12 is brushed vs finished though. I don't have my watch with me to check at the moment.

Bnewbie is quite correct, as always when it comes to references. :thumbsup:

Tnx Driver, I can chime in sometimes with references between 1990es and cca end of first decade of this century.
Older or newer than that interval, not so much. :)
Glad to see some people here for more than 14 years.

We're few and far between these days though, 'Newb. :|

(PS - After 14 years your screen-name's not exactly accurate anymore! :lol: )
