FS: Breitling Chronomat Blackbird A13050.1

For sale from my personal collection is this 100% original Breitling Chronomat Blackbird ref. A13050.1
The Blackbird was a “series special” a limited edition with a brushed case and matte black dial which “flew under the radar” compared to the normal high-gloss polished Chronomat models of those days.

An absolutely gorgeous watch with a lot of nineties swagger, an unpatinated matte black, with white indices.
The rehaut has a tachymeter scale. The subcompaxes are recessed and have a white ring around them, all hands hands are bright white, the chrono hand has a very cool bright red tip.
The brushed bezel is monodirectional and the case has never been polished and is still in its original state!

Inside ticks a trusty Breitling Calibre 13 which is the Breitling variety of the bulletproof Valjoux 7750 automatic movement.
The service history is unknown, but the watch runs fine and the chrono starts, stops and resets like it should, the pushers feel crisp

The watch comes on the original steel Breitling bracelet.

This Breitling is in an excellent condition, especially for a watch of around 25 years old. Please look at the photos, my apologies for the excessive amount of dust specks.

Since my collection has gotten too large again it is time to make some choices, so this one may leave.
