    Breitling "Emergency" model number E56121.1

    Hello. I am brand new to this forum. I am gald to see a lot of Breitling enthusiasts here.

    I purchased this Emergency model last Saturday at an estate sale. I then went to Tourneau where they sent it to Breitling in Switzerland to have the battery replaced and repair whatever else may be necessary.

    I was wondering if someone here could help tell me the year this was produced and perhaps what the pruchase price may have been. I have not been able to find anywhere else online with this unique face:f ive little black airplanes (preumably Dassaults) flying or taking off perpendicular to 90 degree black lines.

    I agree with Lou. I hope you did not spend too much. I doubt that Breitling will send this watch back to you.

    Ok...

    What makes it fake? How are you sure? What is your point of reference?

    Simply saying it's "fake" to me is as good (or bad) as saying it's authentic.

    Plus, why would Tourneau accept it for repair if it was a fake?

    I'd like to know too. Not sure if it's forum "rules" to not provide details but why say it's a fake and not explain?

    It's a fake because Breitling didn't make it. Look at the Breitling website. The watch you have does not exist as far as Breitling goes. As said by others, I hope you didn't pay much for it.

    Specifically, the LCD displays are an immediate give away. They are not reversed out I.E. A real Emergency has black displays not silver.
    I'm sure others will pipe in as to other discrepencies.
    Trust me and the mods, it's a fake.

    I did look at the Breitling website. Thank you for pointing me to Breitlingsource. And thank you for telling me what a fake watch is--something not made by Breitling. Brilliant.

    Perhaps I should clarify....something not made by Breitling passing itself off as a Breitling.
    It's a fake. How much did you pay? I hope not much.
