What do you mean by "elevated"? Do you have any pictures?

The e is not aligned / higher than the other letters of the word.

I found quite a few too, including in the model detail listing on this site and some reputable sellers. Could just be a misprint or indicative of something worse, although the one in your photo looks correct.

Edit: interestingly, the orientation of the date window varies.

Clearly they didn’t, as there are plenty of pictures without it. I'd suggest it is a misprint on a batch of dials. If it bothers you look for another one that doesn’t have it. It is not a rare watch.

This occurred in the first or second model year for this model. It even showed up in the chronolog!

It was fixed on later model years, but I still can't believe this made it past Breitling's quality control. I had one till I traded it in for Chrono SuperOcean a week later (never worn though) and it would have driven me nuts. Occurs on all dial colours.
