Breitling watches

anyone know what the LOWEST price a used breitling would go for that is authentic?

just looking on ebay, and i'm pretty sure some are fake, but some are used and look very authentic but end up going for like 380?

Some sellers on eBay raise their prices to show that they are authentic. Try to con ppl like you.. Just be careful. Even if the price seems realistic for an authentic watch, it still may not be.

IMO, I dont think ebay is a best place to buy an expensive items such as a watch. Sometimes it's not that easy to differentiate between fake and real.

if you know what you're looking for and what the differences are, its not that bad. I'd stay away from Rolex's tho in general, since those replica ones are as good as those from a Rolex factory. A Breitling is different. Its a very high end flight watch that not a lot of people make duplicates of, but they are out there. You should really do your homework about watches like these if you're thinking about buying one. You should know the mechanism, the number of jewels accuracy, styles available and other production information about the watch, since these are things that you should be asking before you purchase anyway.

99% of the time. they try to say stupid shit to sell fake stuff..

on ebay. if there is *any* doubt about it being fake. then assume its fake. i've seen users with 100% feedback and 8 or 900 feedback with stuff that i don't even need to see in real life to know that its fake.

and that lady whos husband lost the papers... doesn't it remind you of those people selling their car who say their car is "garage kept, lady driven" lol. right buddy.

There are fake Breitlings around. But it's easy to tell what's a fake.

La Swiss is the name. They're a rip-off.

I have a limited edition "Old Navitimer." What does yours look like?
