Try looking at the Breitling logo closely. Is it painted on or Is it applied (i.e. raised up)? painted is fake. Also the hand mounting pin in the centre of the face should be the same colour as the hands. Hope this helps.

If the number listed in the description of your problem is the model and serial number, then it is most definitely counterfeit.

Next to Rolex, I have heard that Breitling are one of the most counterfeited watches out there (which is illegal, and a serious problem not only for luxury/prestige watchmakers, but also luxury/prestige goods in general). It used to be that fakes were rather easy to spot, especially if one knew what the real deal looked like but counterfeiters/criminals are getting pretty good at their illegal trade these days, often using Swiss (ETA) movements such that the only way to tell for certain is to take your watch to a competent watchmaker --be it Breitling itself or an independent00and have them take the back off to have a look at the movement. There are many other tell tale signs which become rather apparent when you hold the real watch in your hands and compare it to the fake, often clear as night and day, but sometimes (more often than not) can just spot the differences when you visually examine a fake with a picture of the real thing. Also, questions to ask yourself: where did you acquire the watch? If from an authorised dealer, then it's genuine. If from a used watch dealer with a real shop, after reviewing their reputation as a seller (and reviewing it some more), then it's probably genuine--lots of good reputable dealers out there, but remember to do your homework not only on the watch but the dealer as well (this, because you're buying not only a product but also the seller. Different "grade scales" also when it comes to used, so want to know what exactly what it is that you are buying, and whether the seller stands behind what it is they sell, yes?). If it's from some fly by nighter on ebay, probably a fake. Another question to ask is how much did you pay for it? Was it a reasonable price (again, do your homework and see what it is you're interested in sells for, so that you know what a reasonable price is). Remember the old saying that if something seems to good to be true, it usually is? Still true. Without seeing pictures of the actual watch in question or knowing anything whatsoever about how it came to be in your possession (was it a gift? did you buy it and if so from who and at what price, etc.) it's impossible to give you anything other than general information as such, I'm afraid. That said, take it to a watchmaker and have them remove the back to look at the movement for you and/or pay for an authentication (worth every penny in my opinion; not only for peace of mind of course, but also insurance purposes as well :) Trust that this helps, and all the best.

Is my Brietling watch fake or real #A25082

if your breitling watch had been purchased to its authorized retailer, there is nothing to worry about but if your watch is had been purchased to anywhere else it is probably fake.. but you can bring it to watch expert or in authorized retailer of breitling brand of watch and you can ask for its authenticity because they have to see it on actual so that they can determine it that if it is fake or not. because there is so many fake watch that has the same looks outside of the original watch but bot on the iside. i hope i had been helped you.

Hello ive got breitling 1884 bently it has numbers on back j44382 01/05 been to jewellery shops and they are not sure is there some were else i can go to check it out

This looks like one for the archives of Brietling!

If you go to ""/contact/", you will see a "contact" address and also a menu for finding your nearest dealer.

A dealer might be able to investigate your watch for you, although I suspect that it might take some time.

Not to be funny but if you paid less than $50 for it I would guess that it is not real.

Not true, it is real, I've got the same breitling and I know it's real. It's an emergency watch generally used by military personnel.

How do i know if my watch is a fake

You could confirm the serial numbers, etc other markings on it at a local watchman or contact the company who made it I'm sure they can confirm if its a fake or a real one based on the serials and other markings.

Real or Fake

check a bunch of things...even great fakes slip up on one or two details

check the luminous markers, are they painted well?
check the bezel luminous marker, does it match an authentic?
check the wing logo on the dial
look at the font for the date
look at the band pins (they should be screws-round or flat depending on model)
check the crystal, should have no reflection and a purple hue when viewed at an angle
under the lugs will be a date etched in to the case
the bezel will have a small "B" etched in between 11 and 12 on the side, not the face

Bottom line, unless you have paperwork in hand and a verification that the seller bought it from Breitling, you are probably looking at a fake
