Hello there, how are you ?

First post here.

Can you please point me in the right direction ? Is this a real Breitling reference ?

I think I know about the engravings: the watchshop "Cairelli" in Rome prepared a batch of these for the Medical Corps (Servizio Sanitario Militare) of the Italian Army. They engraved their own logo inside the caseback, engraved the outer caseback with the client details, and had the dial reprinted with the medical corps logo.

However, I can't find a similar "civilian" Breitling reference to compare it to.

Thanks a lot !

Stefano

No photos sadly, another photobucket victim. I suggest tinypic, works well for me.

fabricated , not a real breitling
also movement markings 'UU' are not ones that Breitling used ('TJ')

they did put a lot of effort into this one though , even down to the correct looking engravings on teh inside of the caseback and the dial markings are extremely well done

ref number on the back is unknown to me

edit: on closer inspection the breitling marked bridge isnt original either

So they got a decent looking fake, and went on adding logos on the dial and engravings on the caseback of a practically unknown Italian military medical corps ?!? Crooks are running out of options nowadays...

Thanks a lot mate !
