Hi all. Could anyone please confirm my suspicions that this is a fake and not a rare watch that I haven’t seen before. This is being offered at auction in Australia. While I can do nothing about the proliferation of fakes I see being sold by auction houses in the UK, I can at least do my bit for the watch collecting community here in Australia.

I think this might answer the riddle. I doubt, however, that this watch ever came out of the Breitling factory, but who knows for certain.
