Hi all

Can someone help me identify this Premier and tell if it is an original? Also what you think about it’s condition - it does have some scratches.
I’ve asked for photos of the caseback, serial number and movement and can follow up with these later.

All the best,
Jacob

at least a redial & incorrect hands, but I don't recognize the lugs shape, so will be interesting to see the caseback

Hi again

Now I received the other photos attached here. I’m thinking that it isn’t a good sign that there is no 6-digit number on the caseback and no “Breitling” tag on the movement - but maybe the watch is before these things were used?
I’m looking forward to your comments?

Best,
Jacob

actually the unsigned movement woulkd be fine until ca. 1944/45 (even appears in some later perfectly correct watches, reason still unclear), but the "U-shape" bridge would only be correct until ca. 1940/41, years before the Premier branding was used on dials.

to sum it up: 100% fake, as assumed

Thank you Fred!
Do you know a good site, page or book that you can recommend for looking up all the premier references?

I took note too of the "7" stamped on the underside of the lug. Can't recall seeing that on a Breitling before.
