  1. Help Verifying Authentic Breitling Chronomat Evolution circa mid-2000s

    Breitling Fake Busters
    So around 2005 I bought a Breitling Chronomat Evolution with blue dial, gold subdials, gold riders, and two-tone steel pilot's bracelet. I loved that watch. Several years -- kids, a mortgage, etc. later and I felt guilty having spent that much on a watch and, in a moment of weakness -- sold...

    Rolex & Tudor
    Hi everyone, I wanted to ask for your opinions on whether this Tudor Explorer is fake or not. Firstly it's not red ranger, so that's a good sign and it does have the Rolex crown, which I know was a thing back in the day. However, the dial and hands look to be in great shape (maybe a redial?)...
