Could this be a fake?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Breitling-Super ... SwnH1WZ9Pm

Superocean S tail incorrect length, missing curve
Inner numbers on dial font seems off, specifically the "1"
Date font looks a bit off to my eye

I'm by no means an expert, but in the market for this watch so spending lots of time studying real vs fake.

I'm no expert by any means, but I have mine on my wrist right now. I know mine is legit because I am original owner purchased form AD. You are right about the curve in S on Superocean. Mine has it that picture does not look to have it. Could be the angle I suppose. Also military/inside numbers look different as you point out from mine. Hard to tell about date font. Experts will chime in soon enough but with no box/papers and at that price I'd hold off for now.

Also bracelet in those pix looks a bit different form mine....the edges of the clasp and links looks "different" maybe polishing?

I'm not convinced that it's real. Besides, the full polished case and bracelet are a massive no no for this Steefish.

Why, because someone polished it?
Fake SOSF is also brushed.
