There seem to be quite a few on ebay these days, this one seems to be in good shape, they even posted the receipt from the service. Does anyone see any red flags for this one?

Thanks again for your time.

Other than there's very little original anymore with the dial and case being replaced by Heist, it's strange he would use the 806E case which used the Valjoux 7736 movement not the Venus 178 pictured. Perhaps he received it with a 806E case but who knows.

Thanks, so what you're saying is this is really a franken watch? Although with Breitling components. Well I guess that's why the bidding is still quite low.

Yes. I didn't check out the actual auction description before my last comment but this pretty much sums it up: "Original piece was 1963 Navitimer 806.... so complete restoration done ." I would guess Heist only used the original movement in the later 1978 case. I still think it will go for a respectable amount since some buyers don't care all that much for the details.
