Hope you guys can help, wanting to take the jump into my first vintage Breitling after years of lusting after them!

Have found the 'perfect' watch for me here

https://www.chrono24.co.uk/breitling/na ... 932899.htm

Does it look genuine to your views? I'm a bit concerned at the back case, the stamping does not look quite right comparing to photos i can find.

Also the dial looks great, maybe too good? Is it a relume, or just a fake and my lust is tweaking my better judgement?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

I don’t know that model well enough to say too much, but it’s certainly not fake. The catalogue version of this ref has white hands, not orange. Dial does look minty.... You should get a movement shot and check that the black plug at 3 o'clock is there - I suspect it is but hard to tell in the photo.

Looks ok to me.
Serial no. dates it to 1977 so orange hands possibly ok or could be replacements.
I would check movement is cal 12 and correctly signed 'Breitling'.
Cal 11 would be incorrect for 1977.
Nice looking watch.
