Hi,

I've been looking to purchase a Breitling Aerospace for a while now and I have seen a 2008 version on eBay for £975.

This is the lowest price I have seen for a modern-ish Aerospace so I've found myself doubting its authenticity. If it is authentic then I would love to buy it!

There appears to be a box and warranty booklet with it that states it was bought from Goldsmiths. There's also a service booklet but there's no actual service receipt on the picture.

Any advice would be greatly received.

Many thanks.

This one?

If so, its real.

The Aerospace is one of the few models you can buy with confidence as the fakes are cheap looking and obvious.
The movement, although stock, is virtually exclusive to this model. The fakers create a copy with a Japanese movement that typically has extra pushers, a sec hand, wrong LCDs, etc.

Yeah that's the one. Thanks for you help.

I was just a bit concerned because I asked for extra pictures and I was sent them straight away. Then when I asked what documentation came with the watch and whether or not the receipt for the recent service came with it, I still haven't had a response.

Another good sign is that in a picture I was sent of the back of the watch, it has all the conversion factors that you would expect on an Aerospace.

As Adrian said, it's real.
