Hi everyone,

I am beyond a novice when it comes to Breitling watches so I thought it would be best to ask the experts. I own a vintage Breitling and from the basic searching I could do I believe it may be a 1945 but I was really hoping you guys could give me more detail. I was wondering ...

a) From the pics do you feel it looks genuine and not a replica?
b) Do you have any idea on the year of manufacture?
c) Do you think the strap in the pic is the original strap?
d) What do you think the approximate value of the watch would be?
e) Is it a rare model?
f) Is it a collectable model?
g) What would be your best advice for me in connection with care, cleaning, storage etc.

Thanks so much

From the pics do you feel it looks genuine and not a replica? - yes, genuine
b) Do you have any idea on the year of manufacture? 1945
c) Do you think the strap in the pic is the original strap? No
d) What do you think the approximate value of the watch would be? Few hundred dollars
e) Is it a rare model? See f
f) Is it a collectable model? Not really, but if it was your grandfathers you should be keeping it.
g) What would be your best advice for me in connection with care, cleaning, storage etc. Find a local watchmaker than can clean the movement and clean the case in an ultrasonic water bath. Don’t polish the case or fiddle with the dial or hands.

Same watch
