edit:
Since this thread is linked to from other fora , and people ask why this is a fake , and details

so here we go

1) Why is this Maron piece fake ?

-: No reference number (all Breitling watches have a 3 , or sometimes 4 digit reference number)
-: Bogus serial number (see serial number list viewtopic.php?f=11&t=31437 )
-: Gold master mark from 'Louis Wursten Fils' (1934 - 1941) , never used by Breitling and not a known Breitling contracter
-: Breitling script on the dial incorrect
-: looks nothing like a genuine known breitling model

so thats done

What is scary to me are the images that will in their own right, looking professional, will attract the novice collector into buying like a moth to lightbulb. As sad as it is, pictures sell.

I think the good Sir has built up a large and very rich clientele over the years

He could probably sell them anything as 'genuine'

Things is with these buyers , they dont have the time to invest in investigating themselves , they do however have the money to employ specialists to shop for them , but when the 'specialist' is not a specialist at all the whole thing comes crashing down

Totally agree. Being in Orlando with many pro athletes having handlers, it happens quite a bit. They see this, tell them to go get me that and get, what the heck??? Seen it quite a bit.
