Default Breitling

As far as I know Breitling watches are stamped or engraved.
The clasp where the writing is looks like laser work.
Also Bently models do not have an open heart design, only Breitling for Bentley Mulliner not Motors as seen in the photo.
Sorry to burst your bubble.

Thanks everyone!!! I've never had a nice watch so this is a keeper. It'll look great when i'm mowing the lawn and eating at 5-star restaurants like McDonalds, lol

REAL ...or... FAKE? When the watch shop had it apart to polish it up, the tech said replicas are getting closer and closer to genuine watches. Most replicas have the logos in the right places. Higher dollar replicas even use "solid" stainless bands that are heavy like the real deal watch. He mentioned one way to identify a replica is to look at the links of a band. Real bands have links that unscrew instead of a typical push-pin. (SEE PIC)

Congrats if it's real. It says something when a fake is exactly identical but 1/25th the price. That's why I choose gold above brand name.

How to spot a fake Breitling watch:
https://www.crownandcaliber.com/watc...fake-breitling

Quote from the article:
Breitling has only produced one watch with an open-heart. That is the Breitling for Bentley Mulliner, and it is worth' a lot! There are only around 25 of these Breitling for Bentley Mulliner watches produced each year, and each one is custom made. If someone is selling a Breitling watch with a visible escapement, chances are the Breitling is a fake.
