Looking to FINALLY add a Breit to my collection, after some saving I've decided on a Colt and Aerospace. Below I found an early Colt with a white face (plus for me) but I don't own any Breits so any help would be appreciated. I'm getting a pretty good deal but before I pull the trigger I wanted to sanity check with some Breit owners before I buy an effin' replica. Take a look below and tell me what you all think, thanks!

The seller indicates that the strap is the original the watch came with and he sent me a photograph of the movement but the quality of the picture is poor due to eBay's messages downgrading the quality. You can make out the Breitling on the rotor.

Real or No Real

Nothing to worry about with this one. Seller did well, to photograph the second hand on top of the minute hand!

For my edification, what is the significance about the second hand being over the minute hand? Thanks for the quick response!

Nothing, I would have thought. Just lucky timing in taking the snap.
