Did breitling ever make a "2914?"

I know Omega did but can not find any reference in Breitling.

The reason I ask is there seems to be quite a few for sale which I suspect as Chinese fakes however would they create a fake of something that never existed?

Thank you for the replies, I suspected Chinese fakes although it does make me wonder why they bother faking them?

To sell them as a real thing to unsuspected buyer.

Hi Fred, can you let me know what this “Richter” source is? Have seen it referenced a couple times. Thanks!

Benno Richter wrote a book called Breitling: The History of a Great Brand of Watches. Its the only real reference but it has tons of errors in it and the collecting world knows a lot more now.
