Gen,Rep or POS

Recommended Posts

My friend was gifted this Breitling by his brother. DW isn't sunken, but it sort of looks like crap and something looks way wrong with the bracelet. What say you RWG?

It's an Avenger II with the new style of bracelet isn't it?

 

Looks real to me if a little beat up

 

Could be a decent rep though?  Not a POS that's for sure

Looks nice I'd say, bit of wear and tear.

Open it up and check the movement

I was kidding about it being a POS. The bracelet looks strange though. Looks hinged by the outer links, and doesn't look like it fits well.

I can't comment o  the authenticity of the watch itself, but it's possible the bracelet became stretched out over years of use. The only way to be sure is to pop the caseback off and look at the movement

Look at how the bracelet is hinged to the end link. I don't recall one that was hinged by the outerlinks, rather than the typical inner bracelet link into the endlink.

I'll eventually get to see it and I'll know what's up when I do.

Looks like (besides being fooked!) the end links are wrong for the Pro 2 bracelet. 

I'd replace the bracelet with a nice leather strap.

Just looks like a well worn Gen to me. 

Unless your in the watch hobby most people wear watches and they get abuse.

Looks like a Pro3 Bracelet, but yes they do not connect like that I had the gen one for a while, possibly the wrong bracelet for that watch it needs different end links. 

 

Watch looks gen, but without a close up of the dial its hard to tell, reps  cant get the fine dial printing right, or certainly i have not seen one that's been spot on.
