A very rare opportunity to buy this extremely rare forerunner model of the famous Breitling Datora. Here with the calibre Valjoux VZHC, the forerunner of the famous Valjoux 72C.
Serial number 542877 from the time of the second world war around 1942-43, the probably earliest example of the Breitling Datora, without reference number just like the early chronomat 769 and without the "Breitling" on the clockwork.
This is one of the biggest Breitling vintage rarities for the best Breitling collection.
The Valjoux VZHC clockwork is the forerunner of the over 200 later watch brands that number among them Rolex, Heuer, Jaeger, Ulysse Nardin and many other highly valuable brands that honour the Valjoux 72C. Even Patel Philipe took this calibre for example for his famous reference 1518.
A typical Breitling Datora casing with a diameter of 35 mm measured without crown.
Absolutely original dial with a patina that's typical for pieces from the war period
The Valjoux 71 HZHC functions well, time of day, start, stop, reset, date, week day and month.
The watch comes with a new leather strap of 22 cm length

Catawiki sent me my money back,Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.This watch was very cheap, ca. 1500 under its real value, but had a very litle problem, I paid 5,- Euro to my watchmaker to fix it. The seller like to make theater for this. He should be kicked out of Catawiki. Nobody needs such
