Hello,

By any chance, would anyone have thoughts about this watch? It looks great, but for all I know it's a fake or franken...

Thanks so much!

Dial has been redone but the biggest issue is the movement. Bridge stamping is wrong - should either be absent (probable for this age) or script Breitling and Premier. On a gold 769 the movement should also be decorated with cote de Geneve (Geneva stripes). It's definitely a mostly Breitling excluding the movement, but pretty sure that movement never started life in that watch.

Thanks -- again! You really know your stuff. If you don't mind my asking, how exactly is it that you know so much?

Just a lot of time spent looking at old Breitlings.
