Hi there,

newbie here just dived into the world breitling.

I recently acquired a Breitling 1461, Ref number A19022 after bargaining the seller down to USD$2975

Although I tried to do as much homework as possible, but there isn't a lot of information floating around like the Olympus A19340; the thought that I was able to bargain the seller down to that price still not providing much of a comfort.

The service log has been empty, the seller told me the watch had been in storage most of the time, so I'm unable to verify base on the log book. :?

Since A19022 supposed to have been a limited run of just 250, but was there 2 variants???

The link below is one also have the Ref number A19022, but the face dails and the engravings at the back differs (the spacing of characters of the run numbers and Ref number)

Any expert able to help a breitling newbie out?

If you are just asking about the legitimacy, that watch is 100% real. I've never seen a fake of a 1461 day calendar. I don't have any info regarding the different runs of this particular one though. There have been so many different 1461 day calendars it's hard to keep track. Either way, beautiful watch and a great price! Enjoy it!
