Looks like a fake to me: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252133824824?ru ... 26_rdc%3D1

Poor baton alignment, date window not filled, 24 hour chrono subdial, B logo wrong on chrono second hand, print quality poor, etc.

the easiest tell is the incorrect subdial configuration, no need to look further, this is a "faux chrono" movemenzt.

I don't have the experience and encyclopedic knowledge you have so I can't spot them immediately just by the subdial spacing or config. I wish I could. I'm always afraid I'll call something fake that's actually real that uses an obscure movement I haven't heard of or some other special edition type. There are usually multiple tells on a fake so I go with what I know.
