      Finally got my perfectly sized custom strap on a deployant clasp. I think it is pretty sick! it was a pain in the butt to size it properly but I love this clasp a lot. Adds a lot to the look and character of my blackbird.

      if you are curious, the strap cost me $140, i got it on Etsy from VladStrap, really nice guy and he did a lot of canvas straps for Breitlings specifically.

      I used cheap ebay strap for $3 to size dimensions but i advise to add another 4-5mm total because canvas strap is pretty thick (exactly how i wanted it to be and it really compliments the watch IMHO being that thick)

          I’ve got one of these, bought it from sead about a year ago. I’m sure mine came with ZF tags? As there been a factory name change? It looks better with the deployment clasp. I might look into this ????. My only gripe is the crown sticks out to far and digs into the top of my hand.

            BadData, Looks amazing with the strap. I might look into something like this myself as I am not a fan of the large Breitling lettering on the side. Just ordered mine as well. Excited to check it out. I was going to go with Remboarder's watch in for sale thread, but with the exchange rate opted for a new one.

              Awesome, post some pics once you get it. Honestly looks even better than gen canvas strap

                - You mentioned that you ordered the deployant clasp from Hurricane and I want to order the same, please can you guide me how to order as I couldn’t find anything about Hurricane (Am a New member ☺️)
                - Breitling logo in the Dial looking bright in the genuine photos in the internet, for the GF rep watches looking more dark, is it something to photos and lighting or this color difference is existing between rep vs gen?

                Thanks in advance !
                Idk about others here, but yes, I agree that the wings logo is too dark and dull. Come on GF, you are already on V4! Hence why I switched out my dial with another factory's one. Dial grain isn't as good as the stock V4 one, but even gen has variances on the grain, so I don't mind.

                  Which factory are you referring to? ZF? I’m on the fence and can’t decide between the ZF and GF versions of this watch. Jybreitling’s GF looks pretty awesome to me. I guess I would be very happy with that quality. But I’m looking for some pros/cons (GF vs ZF). Can someone enlighten me?

                    GF no question, much better.

                      Damn you got a good deployment, colour matches the watch well. I ordered one from the Hurricane and it was way too black not like the watch colour at all

                      I ended up just buying the gen blacksteel deployant so I guess I’m happy

                        GF is better. ZF makes some nice watches but their Quality Control is the worst of any of the factories. Buy the GF. You will be happy.

                          yes, GF is better in every way compared to ZF but ZF has double AR crystal. DLC coating darker and more matte compared to GF's satin brushed finish (which gen has both variants).

                            Hey!
                            Tell me please, how much does the Blackbird GF v4 weigh? Below is a link to a video on a Chinese resource, where they weigh 111 grams with a rubber strap. The original weighs 80 grams with a strap. The difference is too big. Is it titanium? What is the reason for this difference?

                              I love the Blackbird GF v4, but also this Avenger GMT, i attached the pic.

                              Anyone with information on the quality of the latter, we already know about GF's amazing work on the Blackbird, but do we know anything about GMT?

                                I am about to sell mine. A beautiful watch but getting no wrist time. Quality is excellent.
