Hi, I'm looking to buy this watch. It's a Breitling Navitimer Fighters, ref. A13330. Just wanted to make sure you all agree it's authentic. What do you think?

Real, without doubt. There is a fake version of this model but has obvious flaws:

Is it normal for there to be such a big gap between the lugs and bracelet? I'm referring to the last photo on the bottom.

Yes that looks a little bit unusual but may due to wear.

That is just down to the way the person is holding the watch - it's not with the natural flow of the bracelet links. I've tried to recreate it with my watch.

Hi, how would you describe the color of the dial? I've never seen one in person. Can't tell if it's more of a cream or a white pearl metallic.
