Hello everyone. I recently purchased a Breitling strap from a relatively low post forum member and just received it today. The strap looks great. However, the font on the inside of the strap looks different then my other 3 OEM straps and where the model number usually is it's says ejet B8.

The first three pictures are of the recently acquired black Croc Strap and the second two pictures are from my brown Croc Strap.

See ejets in left corner of the strap and note on the brown one the model number is in the same spot.

The wing on the strap also looks different than my brown one.

The font of the model number also looks different than my brown one on the long side.

Here is the strap I compared it too.

As I said the actual Croc side of the strap looks good but since all 3 of my other straps have identical font, I may just be paranoid. But hey these straps are not cheap.

Thanks for your time and expertise.

I would also be slightly suspicious of the the different marking for that part, but I'm quite certain that the strap is genuine, based on what I see in the photos.

Well thanks. As I said it looks great on the Croc side but the EJET 8 was just something I have never seen before.
