    Because folks have asked. I don't think this is detailed enough to give anything away to the forgers, as it is a poor cell phone shot. Anyway...unless Bremont has a relationship with Seagull...The strap is real, that is mine.

    If this case is fake it is the best I've seen. Right down to the Faraday cage and neoprene shock protection. I'm still not 100% convinced that this case is a fake, but at minimum the movement has been replaced. I'd be pretty darn disappointed in Bremont if that movement was an original from Bremont. It is marked 26 jewels and faintly with Sellita markings, but the shock absorber is wrong and I have done some other looking and it looks exactly like a seagull. I have seen rotors from seagull marked "Swiss Made" before too. Panerai got hit with something like that on a closed back watch some time ago, but it was still a high quality movement, just wasn't decorated. I do not think that Bremont would do something like that.
