Hi guys
I'm new here so I hope that I'm posting on the right section

I'm considering this steelfish
http://www.ouedkniss.com/breitling-supe ... -d10555129

but I think it's fake beceause none of the ones that I've seen had balck markings on the bezel except for the chronometer versions

am I right?

Many thanks for your help

He thinks it's real because it is real. Fake of this model is fairly easy to spot and this one is genuine.

Looks like the outer coating of Anti Glare has been removed though. Bear that in mind...

You mean how would you know the top Anti Glare coating is missing? Well, because you'd get a lot of obvious reflection in the crystal: as is evident in the 2nd photo. Look around the gallery photos and you'll see that the crystals appear invisible, except for a slight blue purple hue.. Because the anti glare is present.

To replace that coating you either find a watchsmith willing and able to recoat the crystal via a third party, or Breitling themselves replace the crystal, along with a service.

Neither simple nor inexpensive I'm afraid.
