Hi all,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Breitling-Chron ... 4cfc62252d

As stated in the title, I do not currently own any Breitling watches, but this one really caught my eye. I have not yet paid for it as I want to be sure it is real before having it shipped all the way from Singapore. My concerns are the following:

1 - I cannot find a watch like it anywhere, so either it is very rare (which I doubt considering the price) or very unpopular
2 - It looks kind of like the AVI/co-pilot, but the bezel has a "12" where all others have a triangle (http://www.breitlingsource.com/watch_de ... d_132.html)
3 - I cannot identify the movement After more searching, it appears to be a Venus 170!
4 - It looks like the face says only "Swiss"; every other Breitling I have seen says "Swiss Made"

Potentially a franken as some bits do look legit? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!! Also, if it is real, any idea what the model and vintage are?

Thanks!

Chris

Would have been interested in that before someone ruined it - nice looking piece.

Thanks all, that's what I thought. Bummer, it's a sharp watch.
