Hello,
A guy on a french forum showed us 2 806, the first one is his, the second one was found on the web.
He's sure to have found rare prototypes of the panda dial typography on a full black dial.
According to the few I know about the 806, both of these watches are fake or franken: "baton" indexes, wrong typography, wrong hands, Swiss Watch T, box 10 on the inner rule and not on outer rule (no box 10 on a full black dial, right ?).
None of these should appear on a full black dial...
As I'm not a specialist at all, I need help from the real experts...
Thanks, guys

Just a wrongly reprinted dial. The time when a black dial was made and the time a red box was printed on dials had 4 or 5 years between them, with the reverse panda dials and no red marks. People just use the term prototype to try to explain why their watch isn’t right.

Thanks, David, for your answer !
This is exactly what I answered to the owner, but I guess its hard to understand you have been cheated...
Maybe with several answers from BreitlingSource I'll bring him to the truth...
