I think the watch is real but not sure about the diamonds. Personally, I would avoid this seller (Loucri) as he has a history of selling fake Breitlings.

Sadly, a very high Ebay rating is no guarantee of a trustworthiness. Quite the opposite, in fact, as these sellers have an untouchable status when reported.

Even the ones made up from 100% genuine donor watches would be expensive or impossible for Breitling to service following this custom pimping.

Look at this franken piece, for example:

The hands are not genuine Breitling, the dial is probably aftermarket, god only knows which bits of this are genuine

You could have started your own thread with respect to this new watch, I am not an expert but I would be very careful when dealing with this seller. If you do a search on this forum of the seller you will get an idea of what I am talking about.

P.S. I believe it should be a GIA Certificate and his is a GAI! Gives you an idea of what type of seller he is!

And I have never seen a GAI Certificate that was with real diamonds!

Chrono Cockpit is real, "diamonds" are aftermarket, but I would never buy anything from that seller.
