Re: Breitling double plane buckle the real vs the fake

: I'm with Rene on this one, I don't see sufficient evidence to jump
: to the conclusion of it being a fake. Some say indeed that all
: these Breitling twin planes buckles are fakes anyway because
: Breitling never made them.

: In cases such as these I'm afraid that the "it looks different
: so therefore it's fake" conclusion lacks evidence, unless
: you have something more to go on I'd say maybe they're both
: fakes, maybe neither are, further detailed research is called
: for rather than a quick knee-jerk reaction.

you feel free to think about, what you like

i had minimum 4 from both buckles and all showed the same differences


yes i also think these buckles perhabs had been sold as a
equipment buckle and not delivered with a watch from Breitling

these buckles, that i call "fake" had been sold on the same distrubution ways/
same seller than the Heuer buckle fakes some years before in ebay (and also
a lot of buckles from other brands, tropic bracelets ...) and also it was possible
to buy these from this italien seller on watch market Düsseldorf, Cologne, Munic ...
