Hi Guys,

I'm hoping a few of you experts could take a look at this watch and let me know if it's authentic or not. Watch comes with all boxes and papers, but the local dealer here it was purchased from did not sign or date the warranty booklet which I found odd. The bracket is date stamped 24/08 and the case is stamped 28/08. The owner had the watch recently polished and the serial # matches the paper but the Breitling logo on the bracket is either off or been polished down as you will see in the pictures. Thanks in advance for your help!

Justin

Lume looks a bit green for me, might be the lighting though. Whats the serial? What cretin did that to the clasp?!

Serial is clear on the database I sub to, might just be me being suspicious as I see a lot of fakes day in day out in my line of work :)
