It may not be a 'fake' as we normally perceive it but I found enough things 'wrong' (or incorrect) with it to take it up a level from Frankenwatch to 'almost fake' and its definitely not "NOS" !

lets see if the experts agree with me here as I list my objections


-: sliderule ring not original and badly 'restaured'
-: lume removed from dial
-: too much space between sliderule bezel and case
-: dial sits 'above' the sloderule ring
-: 'Breitling' engraving on the back done *very* poorly
-: 'stainless steel' and serial engraving on the back done poorly
-: 'WOG' engraving on the movement looks 'iffy'
-: 2 different screws used to hold the movement in the case

and a last one I am not sure about , to my eye it looks like the dial is gilded and belongs to a gold version ? (might just be lighting)

to everyone, merry Christmas and I wish you all happiness and good health for you and yours !
