Was trolling eBay looking at completed auctions and noticed this Avenger Skyland. It sure looks fake to me. Note the horrible alignment of the lume dots and the very shallow engraving on the case back. Also the raised Breitling logo doesn't look right. Didn't the Skylands have a printed logo and not the gold raised wings? I know this one already ended. Just wanting to know if I'm getting better at spotting fakes. :)

If it's fake I feel sorry for the guy that dropped 1700 bucks on it.

Poor fake, incorrect subdials and the fact that subdials are too close together are the biggest giveaways. Would need a link to report.

Sorry. I thought I copy pasted the link the first time. It must have not shown up in the post. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Breitling-Aveng ... 7675.l2557
