Hi guys, so the breitling chronomat 44 was the first watch that i was REALLY into, but i always had an issue with the offset date, and the font style on the bezel.
the blackbird big date seems to solve pretty much both those issues and the high polished style, the only downside being the eta movement as compared to the chronomat 44's B-01 (which i dont mind).
My only concern is the case/bracelet and the heft - is the blackbird case & bracelet the same as that of the chronomat 44?
I really liked the chronomats solid crown and the screw down pushers. If the blackbird big date has those exact same features, i'll be sold, but i've not handled one yet.
