Dear all,

I've been passed an Breitling my grandfather purchased in the 70's, and I'm having some difficulties identifying it. I would like to know about the model.
The watch as passed through a lot over the years, so I was thinking on having a recuperation job on it.

Can you please see the picture and help me identifying it, and share some internet links with aditional info?

regards

Looks like a ref 2031 Datora missing the rotating bezel. Circa 1969.

Hi,

many thx for the quick reply.

Was there any version of the 2031 Datora, without the rotating bezel or most likely the watch was modified in the past?

another question I have: is the original bracelets of this 2031 Datora of leather of metal?

It would have had a bezel originally. Most likely it was knocked off and lost and just worn as is. It will be difficult to find a replacement. The original strap would have been most likely a Croc or Lizard strap.

Here is the catalog photo showing the leather strap.

I think you may struggle to find the bezel and a clean dial. Patience will be needed.

Many thanks for the hints guys. Very helpfull.
I've contacted Breitling Portugal services for a quotation on the restauration job of the watch...

it will depend mostly on the cost.
