Hi, I found an old vintage square shaped Breitling on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-clas ... m570.l1313

However, I couldn't find any reference over this model/shape. Tried searching by serial number too, but nothing came back. Did anyone come across this model before?

Thanks.

It looks a lot like a South American fake to me. The ref number is one I can't find and the Breitling inscription on the back, and movement, looks like they were done at the same time, with the same font, by the same engraver and not what you would expect to see for 1957. Add the redone dial and it's better to stay away from this one as it has all the warning signs.
