Hello!
My father bought this watch of his work buddy 10 years ago, and now I need your help to find out if there really is a genuine Breitling or a copy.

Thanks / Simon

Very sorry to say its a fake. Return it if possible and ask for the money back.
Titanium cases never show brass beneath lousy chrome plating. ( I wouldn't wear this watch for fear of heavy metal poisoning). There is no transmitter test button on the back of the case and a dozen other points of difference I could point to but don't need to to confirm this is a fake.

...I guess if he's been satisfied with a fake for 10 years tho' ..... I presume his 'friend' didn't know it was a fake either?

Point taken. I guess my suggestion was impractical but one never knows what $$ were involved with the transaction.

Thanks for the quick response, As you know, it was 10 years ago and I think it's sad that my father has gone around and thought it was a real Breitling. I think he paid around 800 dollars.
