Can you tell me whether this is a fake?

Hello everybody. Can you tell me whether this is a fake?
My name is Peter, and I am a recent convert to the world of watch collecting. Vacheron Constantin are my favourite make, as their watches are (in my opinion) the most beautiful and elegant that I have seen, and every model has been designed with great taste, care, and skill.

I have chosen "Future Owner" as my screenname, as I would love to own one of their wonderful watches as soon as finances allow. However, I already have an old VC movement which I bought very cheaply with the intention of restoring as a project. I would be very grateful indeed if you could give me your opinions of it and tell me whether you think that it is a genuine VC.
It was very cheap indeed, and I am quite happy to just write it off to experience if it turns out to be fake.

Here are a couple of pictures, and I look forward to reading your replies, whatever they may be!

Best wishes to all.

I have a feeling that I've already seen this image at the auction, the watch is old but it was offered for a very low price, almost free for such brand, so I wish you good luck in buying.
Thankyou for the replies!

Thankyou for your replies, Alex Ghobti and MilitarySun. I am very pleased to hear that you think it is genuine, Alex. (It is nice to have a reply from you, too - I have read a lot of your contributions to the site, and they are a pleasure to read.) I will begin restoring it when I have the time, and I will post pictures of the process here for you all to see! MilitarySun - yes, the pictures are the same ones that were used on eBay, which is where I bought it. The seller believed it to be a ladies pocket watch movement, circa 1910, which had been converted to a ladies wristwatch a few years later (it is very small - only 21mm in diameter). A pleasure to meet both of you.
Sorry - spelling.

Sorry - I should have spelled your name Ghotbi, not Ghobti. My mistake!
no problem I'm used to it :-) nt
