Hi, I have been looking at this watch for some time and was wondering if this is real or fake.....the seller has the following as a description

Up for sale is my RARE BREITLING NAVITIMER 816-72 CHRONOGRAPH.  It is in very good original condition.  The big case measuring 47mm is in very good condition free from any dings or dents. Still visible on the outside of the case back are markings BREITLING 816-72 DDE BR 11525/67 1251128. The crystal is clean and looks original.  The crown is signed BREITLING.  The bezel turns nicely both ways.  The all original dial is very nice however the markers at the 5, 6 and 7 have been touched up.  Hands are per picture with the hour and minute hands showing some paint lost at the pivot end.  The BREITLING signed manual wind Valjoux 72 movement looks clean, is running strongly with the chronograph functions working properly.  All hands zeros back nicely too.  I do not know the service history, so a service in the near future is recommended.  It comes with a nice black with white stitching leather band.  Please look at all the pictures as they are part of the description.  Although I do my best to describe the watches accurately, they are sold as is.  As with all vintage watches, no claims are made regarding accuracy of time keeping.

Here is a link from eBay

Ostensibly it looks fine, but I am concerned about the caseback.

I would like to see a better shot of both the outside and inside, but from the shot that the seller has provided it looks like something has been marked over and the serial number isn't in a Breitling style font. I don't see any issues with the rest of the watch which makes that rather odd.
