Hi guys I'm looking to identify my grandfather Breitling, some years ago we went to the watch shop and they told us it had a value, but I prefer to ask to the experts. I posted It here because I tried to find it but I didn't find anything only one breitling from the 50's, but It didn't look like it's the same.

Thanks in advance,

P.D:Not even sure if it's fake but I don't think so.

I dont think its fake either

value ? thats hard as not a lot of people (that I am aware) collect these , so 2000-3000 mainly due to it being 18K gold ?

It can't be an original dial though.

I wouldn't have expected Incablc. What legitimate pieces have that on the dial?

One of the dials is misprinted - "31" at 12 o'clock instead of "1", and the OP dial is much whiter than the datewheels behind -patina does not match.

This also has date '31'at 12 o'clock.
I assume this is a proper fake?

Thanks for the help

No, Breitling won't know or be of any assistance. Just put it on your wrist and remember your grandfather. We get quite pedantic sometimes here on details - I wish I had my grandfathers watch, (which I don't) so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

ad David (Buddman) said , Breitling wont be of any help . You've found the best possible place to get assistance , and sometimes we just dont seem to be able to agree . This seems to be one of those cases but I wouldnt worry about it . wear it , remember who it was from and take care of it (and I still think its 100% genuine :-)
