Can not put my finger on it, except in my opinion the case back looks stamped, and others I have looked at appear etched or laser cut

First image from the bay

And this image is off one that appears etched or cut

Eh? Looks okay to me. There is an accurate fake of the Bentley GT but the giveaway is the outer bezel sliderule scale is usually too wide. (The fakers use the same case from their other Bentley models but the real GT is about 4mm smaller)

Split opinion, that's unusual

Well Adrian believes it's real, that to me means the knowledgeable opinion is not split!

It's all great knowledge, the eBay one is obviously not engraved, interesting to know that Breitling stamp case backs

I have no issues with people not being sure, that's why people come here - to learn. I have huge issues when legitimate sellers selling real watches have their sales reported to eBay as fakes by people who aren't certain whether the watch is real or fake.
