Also a fake.

Had you had a copy of my book, you would have already saved $100s of not $1000s.

The bridge is a legit USA market chronograph bridge. It's missing the VXN mark normally found on a USA watch on the balance bridge.

So don't know. Back looks weird. What does the front look like?

This is the closest one so far. I've have not seen this case before, bezel does not look right and the case back signature look odd. But the dial looks legit doesn't it? So not sure! It think it's a composite of more than one watch would be my opinion with some LeCoultre in it.
