Hard to tell from photos. Its movement doesn't fit the case very well though.

i couldnt find this model on the Breguet site.
mmm i have no idea if its a real breguet.

Dear Sir,
I fear that, in best opinion, it may be a PW movement that has been put into a steel Wristwatch case...
By the way, I an not sure of this..
But pay attention at the same and ask to the seller a pic onf internal snap back!
best regards,
Giulio onlyprecious

The movement and dial may be genuine, however they might be from a Breguet pocket watch that was later put in a wristwatch case. That is what Mike means by a marriage. It's a polite way of saying the case is not original to the watch.
You don't usuually get fakes in this age of watch but sometimes the whole watch is not as it left the factory.

That means if it were originally in a pocket watch, it'd have been a pretty small one. That doesn't surprise me though as the small pocket watch movements were the first ones put into wrist watches.

I suppose you could email Breguet and ask them. They are part of Swatch now, but they do take an active interest in the company history and historic pieces.
