I was in my local thrift store earlier today when this caught my eye in the bottom of the jewelry "bucket" they have set up there. As soon as I picked it up my eyes widened. The fellow behind the counter gave it to me for fifty cents because it "needed a battery," and I left a happy camper even if it is a fake.

I can't seem to find much on this watch, so I decided to come to the experts. From what I can find, the lid on the back is from a fake, but that fake doesn't even match up to this watch so the reference number is completely useless to me (A68062 No. 1111). It seems the owner lost or damaged his and replaced it on the cheap.

Below are some pictures I took, and I would greatly appreciate the help in identifying this watch.

You paid 50 cents more than it's worth, very bad fake.

Bottom of the barrel fake with a cheap Chinese day/date movement pretending to be a chronograph. It's an automatic movement, doesn't need a battery.

Thankfully, Breitling have never made a yellow dial Navitimer.
