Hi all!

First topic, hoping to become a happy Breitling owner.

I'm following an auction for a B-1 that looks interesting.

Now, I have some doubts.

First of all, I need some help to understand if it's authentic or fake.
Then, I noticed that the luminescent dot on the bezel at 12 is missing: could that be replaced? Would its lack create problem to the lubrication of the bezel itself?

Here are some pics

Thanks to who will help

Thanks, those are good news.

Any clue for the luminous dot on the bezel? Can it be replaced?

Make sure when you spin the crown, the digital display changes smoothly and doesn't go in reverse, also check the backlight as they dim over time.
