    BR01-92 Airspeed - Real or fake?

    Hello everyone,
    Just curious if this baby is real or fake before I buy. It seems awfully cheap which makes me doubt its authenticity despite the poster saying it's authentic.
    Thank you.

    All most likely real. The eBay one is ridiculous, if you like it you should buy it and you have purchaser protection. Seller isn't making much after auction and PayPal fees are paid. Maybe he has lost his mind.

    The dial on the Airspeed is a little busy for me... But that eBay one looks like a fantastic deal.

    The instrument series don't seem to be big sellers. I've seen NIB versions of all of them for this price or cheaper at reputable dealers.

    If it is real it has a lot of patina (scratches) for only being worn 'a couple of times'. If you think it's real $2500 is too high. Maybe $1800.

    Weird to see he sells it with an 03 box ! Ask for other pics (with his username on a paper for example) to be sure it's not stolen pix

    Can't believe I missed that. Also interesting black on black photos so the details are difficult to see.

    BR01-92 Airspeed - Real or fake?

    My mistake... It's a 03 Heritage, so it's logic to have a 03 box...
    Sorry!
    Looks genuine indeed

    I notice these flight instruments sell pretty cheap compared to other models, clearly a sign of low demand. With that said, it's understandable because they're a pretty unique style. I've always liked the Airspeed, but for me it was a 7th watch, so getting something really unique fit the rest of my collection nicely was important. I also got it from my pal at the Paris boutique after visiting HQ, so it's somewhat of a special watch to remember the trip by. I really like the weight of it, and the fact nobody wears anything like it. It's one of the few watches I'll wear several days In a row. Not sure how many are left unsold, but It's an LE of 1,000 pieces... For a fun and unique BR I think it's a great value.
