The Avenger Blackbird 44 is bold and robust, with an understated black dial, and a strong titanium case. The smoothly sweeping second hand can be paused to synchronize time. Luminous hands and hour markers. Unidirectional ratcheting bezel. Four rider-tabs make it simple to set the bezel, even while wearing gloves. The lugs are still sharp.
It’s a great watch for those who want the look of a black or PVD/DLC coated watch in their collection, or as a rugged daily wear timepiece. When toughness, dependability, and accuracy is mission critical, grab this watch.
Comfortable to wear, even on long days and nights, the watch weighs in at 90 grams, or 3.1 ounces. It feels solid, but not bothersome in it’s heft. Dependable Breitling black canvas strap with Blacksteel clasp. The Breitling black steel buckle is clear of “desk dive” marks, as I wear my watches carefully.
No need for stealth? If you want to make a statement, the included bright red Horus rubber strap accentuates the date window and the “tip of the spear” second hand.
Unlike some of the current offerings on other sites, this includes the Breitling box, Breitling leather travel case, and watch pillow, as well as papers such as warranty and maintenance booklet, e-warranty card, COSC certificate, and owner’s operation manual. Originally purchased at an authorized Breitling retailer in May 2017, this watch remains in very good condition.
This is a very clean timepiece. The illumination is strong and bright, as you can see by the seventh photo. This is not a “safe queen” and is not perfect, but has been taken care of. The photos are part of the description, and I feel they are very representative of the condition. The watch has been worn, used, and enjoyed, and I believe it has many more years of reliable use and service ahead for the buyer. I’m happy to connect with buyers on social media, phone, or video, and can provide references.
