Steelfish Conundrum

I'm hoping someone can help me solve this little problem I have with a Breitling Steelfish I recently bought on the Bay. The watch was advertised as having a blue dial, but when I opened the watch box, I couldn't believe my eyes. The watch had a grey dial. I thought I had made a mistake and had bought a watch different from the one I thought I was buying, and the grey dial didn't look bad, so figuring it was my mistake, I let it slide for a couple of days.

Then I decided to go back and re-read the description of the watch. I hadn't made a mistake. It said "blue dial." I sent a message to eBay to mediate the issue. I really wanted that blue dial. The seller sent me a message today: "Breitling didn't even make that model with a grey dial." I checked it out and it seems to be true, but the dial on my watch is unmistakably grey. Look at the pics and tell me I'm wrong.

Now the funny thing about this is that the chapter ring is blue but the dial grey. The seller said the watch had recently been serviced and polished. Could it be that the original blue was changed out for a grey one? I know. Breitling didn't even make a grey dial for this model. So what's going on? I want my money back, and he can have his watch back. This Steelfish does not have a blue dial.

Can anyone give me any feedback on this? Am I seeing grey where I should be seeing blue? Can you see the chapter ring in the pics? Maybe it's just me.

The seller advertised the watch as having a blue dial. You've got the watch and you can see that the dial is *not* blue so therefore you have a case to return the watch saying that it isn't as advertised. EBay will be on your side.
