I'm convinced fake for some very obvious reasons. But what are your thoughts?

He should have gone with a nice affordable Seiko instead of a fake Breitling.. Such an ugly fake at that!

For independent verification for me, can one of you also say the things about it that give it away as a fake?

Fake tourbillon at 6 is a dead giveaway, plus wrong date font, subdial font, watch has pushers but no chronograph.

Actually it could well have a chronograph based on the fact that it has a subdial to 30 (it doesn't, but the dial on this one doesn't reveal that).

There is no real Breitling with this dial layout, the only tourbillon Breitling is a 9 o'clock one, and this is a common low end fake that is instantly recognisable.

Thanks for the clarification Roff.

It was taken by a reporter at the Big 12 Media Days.

Breitling tourbillon is also at 6 o' clock, but it's a real one. :)

You're right of course, not sure why I decided to move it to 9 :oops:
