Picked up this beauty from a seller off chrono24.. don't believe it's a replica but just want to get your expert opinion on it , especially since it has a bracelet that doesn't come originally on the avenger.. paid $2400 shipped

Looks ok to me, but close ups of dial would help more.
I don't see any serial, was it removed?

The Skyland was a notoriously well faked piece back in the day (and possibly still is). Slightly misplaced lume markings used to be a good "tell" on the fakes of this model, and on the basis of the bigger pic of the dial of your watch I'd say it looks fine, but I'll definitely defer to Bnewbie on this as he's a better fake-spotter than I.

And yes it does look like the serial number has been removed. It should be right below the A13380

Sorry I do not .. I haven't had a change to open it up .. i actually do believe she's authentic...as the dealer seems reputable on chrono24.. my biggest concern was the mesh strap as I know it didn't come on the avenger models

It is real to me, but Breitling won't service it without serials.
Mash bracelet also looks real to me.

Wow really ? .. looks like previous owner or seller polished the shit out of it as you can see some of the engraving is over polished..also the B on the crown . I'm actually thinking it was the dealer I purchased it from .. I'm actually having a dispute with them as the AR on the crystal is basically all gone around the edges of the crystal .. looked horrible when I first received it , AR only in the center . so I just took it off completely and looks 100 times better
