    A friend of mine is trying to sell me a Breitling, supposedly the one that came with the 2008 Bentley GT coupe. Basically I want to know if its real.

    Perhaps you should try a watch shop instead of an IM forum.

    Looks fake, but your pictures are shitty quality. Post a good clear close up of the tourbillon (the hole on the mid down).

    I'm into watches. I can tell you that a Breitling is one of the most copied watches out there.Usually Montbrillants and Navitimers but the all time worst are Bentley editions.

    The model with Tourbuillon that you have pictured is everywhere for £50 so I wouldnt touch it unless its coming from a shop, accredited with papers.

    Edit: Just looked at the pictures. Thats about as fake as tits on a bull.

    I don't know anything about watches tbh. This was the first place I thought of since I know people on here may or may not deal with these kind of products.

    Thanks. I know someone else who knows watches just told me probably to not touch it because the bezel isn't the correct bezel, it's supposed to be steel and not diamonds.

    You can find watch like this on Taobao or PaiPai. It's not even a good replica your "FRIEND" is trying to sell for you.

    I'll admit it wasn't a "friend" of mine. A guy in a local buy/sell fb group

    Does your friend have any bridges for sale?

    With these watches some of the fakes are so good a professional would need to open them and see the movement.

    You could put it on a scale - a genunine watch weight is normally 150 - 200 g. You can find the excact weight for that model on the official website.

    If the replica is good enough you are not going to be able to tell even listening to the movement.
    You can look the serial numbers up online and see how that goes. Just saying it is possible to reproduce a watch
    to perfection.

    Does it have a certificate ? Check the serial number, go on the breitling webiste and check! My guess it a fake, you don't sell a breitling on a facebook group...unless well it s a fake
