Hi all,

Do you think this is a genuine piece of Breitling?

I've also checked the reference between the lugs, which suggests that is manufactured back in 2006 (4106 B5).

I am aware that the deployment clasp and the rubber band by the way, which I have replaced.

Looks fine, nothing I would reject it on.

The silver frame on the date window is too wide and the date font looks off. Also, the caseback doesn't look like an original. I'm no expert, but I think this is a fake. The blue dial also doesn't seem to be like the typical blue that the Steelfish have and it' hard to see if there are any rings on the dial.

The engraved lettering on the case back looks too shallow to me, case looks poorly finished so I concur with Justin. Steer well clear.

For reference, here's the sales listing to an authentic one where you can see the items I've mentioned.

Yes agree its a fake looks poor on the back and B looks as if it’s missing on the bezel and date window looks wrong
