Face reads "BREITLING CHRONOMETRE CROSSWIND"
But the model number on the back is A13370 which when searched for on google comes back to a Breitling Super Avenger. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

What makes you so sure? Would you care to point out exactly what makes this watch fake compared to a genuine Breitling Crosswind?

Don't mean to rain on your parade but if you compared your watch to pictures of an authentic crosswind you will see the obvious problems! Plus the fact that the "watch" has casebook that does not even belong to it, will give you a hint as to why it is not real. This could be the reason why you were able to purchase it at such a great price!

Didn't even need to see pictures a 'Crosswind' with an SA model number is a fairly common fake. Also, just look at the subdials - two that go to 60 is a guaranteed fake.

@ OP
Do you believe there is a slight possibility for CW with SA ref# to be genuine?
