Hi Forum..new poster here..thanks for having me!

I'm about to purchase this Breitling Super Avenger black diamond custom.

However I have a concern ..

A: Caseback - It has a caseback m13370 Limted edition fitted ... however I cannot find another black diamond Super Avenger with this M code limited edition caseback fitted.
All the others Black Diamond Avengers I have seen have the different caseback A13370
M code is Black Steel
A code is Stainless steel
What could have happened here? Was it serviced and the wrong caseback mixed up and fitted ? is it fake? is there a limited edition run of these that I don't know about?( if so I searched and could not find any information ) A mystery indeed..any ideas?

The dial looks ok to me but any feedback is welcome.

Should I proceed to purchase this watch? ..happy to adhere to advice of members more knowledgeable than me. Thank you kindly

Caseback looks fake to me.
You didn't see that configuration bcs DLC SA was never offered in it. Dial is bad fake, just look at the wings logo. Even if the watch is real, all 'diamond' work would be aftermarket.

Personally I'd steer clear of that one for all sorts of reasons.

Thank you kindly guys! I'm fortunate to receive your advice and appreciate it very much.

I'm definitely going to pass on it now..also no box and papers..as it is my first expensive watch purchase its very
important to me to own a genuine Breitling as I can only afford 1 special watch.

I will keep searching and thanks again for looking after a new member here!

Cheers,

Ethan

Also, the seconds hand at 9 is not the correct style either.

Wrong on so many levels
