Hi there - I just bought Breitling Galactic Automatic Stainless Steel Mens Watch A45320B9-C902SS on Amazon and the same model from Costco - the only thing I am worry is engraved serial number on the back - on the Costco model is clear and well engraved on the Amazon one looks like only the edges are engraved... Is it normal or should I be worry and return the Amazon version. As you can imagine there is significant price deference between those two to be specific $600! Costco version is relatively cheap compare to MSRP $6150... How is S/N engraved on yours? thanks - jerry

Er, at least one of them appears to have clear plastic label on the caseback?

I don't know of any good fakes of this model

both of them still have clear plastic label on the caseback... left one is the Amazon version right is the Costco one. My question is it normal for Breitling to have some models for some market engraved just the edge of the serial numbers not whole #s including inside? This Costco version has warranty book from France so initially was made for the French market... right? What are Breitling standards? - have you ever seen this before? Amazon backups there transaction with warranty for two years and Costco is well known for selling Breitlings forever... I'm struggle here...

I don't think the depth of the engraving is a major worry if the watch is legit. I don't think there are any really good fakes of this model yet like ade113 said. I say just enjoy the watch!
