There are a lot of variations. This is one of them, but I missed one other thing. Generally there is no visible "seam" between the dial and the inner bezel. One other thing that I can't really tell from the pictures is if the pin that holds the hands is a different color than the hands (ie. Silver hands, black center pin) it is an easy way to guarantee that it's a fake.

Pin and hands are same color, both silver. But from the sounds of your last post it's no bueno which isn't a surprise. Wish there was an easy way for me to take off the back at home.

Yes unforunately. Also, I couldn't see it until I brightened my screen but serial no. 1111 is always fake. Looks like it was decently well made though. Wear that shit!!

Meh, it appears to be 7777 but either way you're right. Will need to take it in for a battery and get a replacement band - also not a big fan of fakes so it may get re-donated/given to a friend. Thanks for the info though!

No problem man. Honestly, a lot of the Breitling fakes are pretty solid watches. A lot of them are made in Japan and are actually pretty decent pieces. Wish it had been real though for ya man frown.gif

That's a "better sweater". Easy $50+. I have a men's better sweater vest up in that same color and it's almost at $70.
