    Vintage Breitling ?

    Is this Breitling real ? It has a o.925 silver case and a Venus 170 mvnt. But neither the case nor the Venus is marked with Breitling. Case # on the back is 110639. Does anybody know ?

    I read somewhere that Breitling did not sign their movement long time ago

    Doubt it's real. Saw it on Ebay and looks like a homemade case. I can see seams that should be invisible and lugs that don't look properly soldered.

    Hands almost the same length

    I wouldn't buy it based on those images

    I think DON makes a good point...it certainly makes me a bit nervous! Michael.

    Yes, homemade case is what I thought. Not sure buying or not.

    I would probably avoid this. The case doesn't look right. Not worth the risk in my opinion. Maybe ask the seller if he has an information about the origins of the watch?

    watch is fake. serial would put it in the mid 1920s - the Venus cal. 170 was introduced in the late 1930s; no square Venus cal. 170 Breitling was ever produced
