Hello.
I have inherited a Breitling ref 790.
probably from the 1950s

I find too little information about this watch.

Any of you know the model?
A little more information would be nice to get about this watch :)

Are they model Premier?

The ref 790 was from the 1950s. Yours has a gold case but the dial looks to have been painted over. The applied B logo is uncommon. Maybe try to find a replacement dial?

https://www.joseph-watches.com/ is a good place to look - often has a wide variety of vintage dials but need to contact them as I'm not sure how accurate their inventory is.

I can suggest eBay too of course . Other than that its watch forums but collectors and watchmakers tend to not sell their parts.
