Hi Y'all !

FYI the Breitling Blackbird ain't in production no more !

when trying to get mine it wasn't in stock at any AD within 100 mile radius !

so, called Breitling Switzerland & got following info (quote): "the Blackbird A4435910 and A4435911 are no longer produced"

assume they gonna relaunch it with their own B01 movement at Basel 2011 - hopefully w/o changing anything else (like switching to the new bezel they stuck on the chronomat01), let's see !

anyway i was lucky coz the Breitling agent for CEE was was able to "recall" the last available polished steel version from another AD ! after thorough check (running +1.5 sec in 2 days !) i got it a couple weeks ago from my AD !

cheers

HP

But let's keep positive for the new version when it arrives, as there's bound to be a new one. You never know, it might be the greatest thing Breitling have made in years! (Pays to be optimistic! :wink: )

As they say in French: "L'espoir fait vivre".

Just three more weeks and we'll have the, I hope, good news!

That's too bad. It's such a beautiful watch, but I do like the sound of the Blackbird 01 8)
