My amateur view only (expert views above and below should be considered before mine): I think the movement is plausibly real (but u still need the movement number for further verification), but everything else is a "marriage", i.e. worthless, and I believe this large watch was never intended as a wrist watch (i.e. it is a deck watch for the German Navy between 1935-45 / Kriegsmarine): the dial and hands look fake, lugs look added on, and seconds counter should be at 6 o'clock but after manufacture modified to 9 o'clock. Do consult this previous discussion here, and the pics and links there for comparison. Again, just my view.
