Franken probably. Dial looks ok but the movement balance cock looks like it says NXO (Oris). Plated case looks a lot strange too. Makes me wonder if the sellers Heist reference is fabricated because Heist wouldn't have missed the NXO.

Good spot on the import code; my feeling is that it’s otherwise ok.

I don't remember ever seeing another example in this timeframe with soldered/fixed lugs like this one. Not usually indicative of an early, non-military, Breitling. Also the minute hand appears short for the dial design. I asked the seller to post the letter from Heist. Ad states the watch was serviced but doesn't say Heist serviced it. I doubt it.
