I know absolutely nothing about watches, but I'm trying to find a vintage Breitling as a special 30th birthday present for my fiancee. I located this dealer from Hodinkee; however, I'm concerned it's a fake. The identical watch with the identical reference number also shows up on three other sites (finer times, classic watch, and elite wristwatch).
If you could help, I would greatly appreciate it! My understanding is that a stainless steel Breitling Premier goes for around $1,500-$2,500, so this watch is within the range. It doesn't appear to be in excellent condition though with the dial having faded and missing numbers.
Don't trust it or go for it?
