Hi folks,

I recently saw a pro-III bracelet for sale. It belongs to a Colt 44. But the inner parts of the clasp are looking a bit curiously. I‘m missing the engraving „manufacture en suisse“.
What do you think? Is it worth to pull the trigger or is there something wrong?
Here are 2 pics:

Here is another pic from my Avenger GMT. I looks different:

Did Breitling change their engravings or is it a fake?

My 2017 Seawolf and my 2016 Colt 44 both have all the engraving. I can't imagine this is correct. Do you have a photo of the end link parts?

Compared to my own bracelet there seems to be a difference in shape and measurements of the hinge, too:

Bracelet date code looks incorrect. It should have a letter followed by four digits unless they've changed very recently. I have checked all my recent watches and they've all got this. Looking at the end links I don't know how you'd fit them to a watch. I'd steer clear of this one if I was you. Steve
