This one actually looks pretty good. The ref number is within the number sequences in Richters book. The dial looks correct. Not sure about the 'Breitling' engraving on the case back which looks fresh. There are some close examples in book too.

Caseback's definitely been modified - Breitling inside and out would be a cause for concern even if the quality was better - the B that's stamped on the back is not even close to the right font obviously. I'd like to see more and better shots of the movement - the rotor on automatics can cover a multitude of sins, but I can't see too much wrong other than the caseback. It's not a typical South American assembly - the dial would have been redone if that were the case, so while I would still have questions I think that it's largely OK.
