Question about Gucci Watches
Open it up and see what movement is inside, Gucci Buy their movements, as they are NOT watch makers but a fashion designer. I would expect to see an ETA automatic 2836/2 or similar. The ETA is a Swiss made movement, ETA supply movements for many good watch brands, such as Tag Heuer, early Breitling, Raymond Weil, Fortis, Ebel & the list goes on. Very easy to work on and spare parts are easy to obtain. Great work horse movement is the ETA, hence why everyone else uses them, not just Swatch.
Not sure your watch would have a serial number, not all watches have them. Just because you can’t see one or it doesn’t have one, it doesn’t mean it’s fake.
If you pop the back off, take a photo of the movement and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you can place it on here, do so, but I’m guaranteed to see it if you email it to me.
Gucci watches are around £400/£600 range, so should be a good solid watch.
Does it sound solid when you shake it? It shouldn’t squeak or rattle too much at that money. The crystal should be AR coated (anti reflective)
Also use a magnifying glass to look at the dial for imperfections, there should be none. QC at Gucci is tight, so look carefully at the dial.
Hope this helps

Get a #0 1.6mm precision Phillps screwdriver (these are brittle) or similarly strong, thin piece of steel.
Hold the watch upside-down across your index finger while gripping the straps tightly between your index finger and thumb on one side, and index finger and middle finger on the other (ie. squeeze the strap around your index finger).
On the underside of the watch, stick the tip of the screwdriver under a square slot where the watchband is connected at an angle perpendicular to the strap. Firmly pry upwards on the cover on one side, then the other, until the cover pops off.
The battery is a Renata 379.
To put the cover back on, align the square slots precisely with the ends of the straps (keep these out straight), then firmly push the cover straight down until it "snaps" shut.

SOURCE: How to Open a Gucci watch
Most watches are either screwed on and typically have a series of small notches around the circumference of the case back. A special tool is generally called for. Otherwise they are "snap back" . These are simply pressed on. To remove you can carefully use a regular knife in the absence of a "case knife". There is usually a small gap/groove/notch area to insert the balde and lift the back off.

Not true, it is real, I've got the same breitling and I know it's real. It's an emergency watch generally used by military personnel.

As with luxury bags, luxury watch brands such as Movado are copied and sold illegally. Movado watches are popular among both men and women, but sellers of replica watches hurt the brand by providing the buyer with poor craftsmanship. Dealers know what genuine Movado watches look like, and they are familiar with the watch model names and numbering system. While you can take your watch to a dealer to closely inspect its authenticity, you, too, can learn how to tell if your Movado watch is fake by noting a few details.
Check the material the watch is made of. Replica watches are made of aluminum, and they don't have the same heavy weight of an authentic Movado. Movado watches should feel like quality, solid pieces. True Movado watches are made of stainless steel.Observe the movement of the watch. The movement of the second hand should not be erratic or shaky. It should look smooth as it travels across the face of the watch.
Look closely for scratches on the glass face. Movado watches are scratch resistant, so any imperfection on the face is a telling sign that it's fake. Hold the face to the light and observe if it gleams like a genuine watch. If it's dull or cloudy, it's not authentic. Also, look for the inscription "Swiss Movado Made" to make sure it's authentic.
Feel the links and the clasp on the watch. Clasps should feel solid, and the links should be joined together by screws. Gently pull on the clasps and check for any loose pins. If the clasps feel fragile, it's probably fake.
