Beware: fake Breitling Navitimer "Breitling Fighters" on eBay. Many problems, but telltale sign is mis-transcription of Messerschmitt Bf 109 on the caseback. To hopefully prevent someone getting caught, I have reported it to eBay, and hope others will too.

I've seen a few bargains from that seller in the past. I'll make sure that I avoid them completely if I'm looking to buy again

I think it was an honest mistake. I emailed the seller and they have ended the auction.
