I recently picked up a Top time 810 that has a few unique features, hoping to understand if it's original or not. Few questions for the Breitling experts here:

-The watch features an 810 mk2 case and dial. The case back states 824. From my research, I have found only a few like this.

-Secondly, it features hands not normally seen on the 810 or 824. Through deep-diving google, I have found 1-2 examples of the 810 with these hands. It looks like the hands are Breitling original, but more commonly featured on the Navitimer 816-72, or Datora 2034.

Could this be a true transitional piece? Or perhaps not all original?

Few images:

Another example found online, looks identical to mine:

And here, the Datora and Navitimer with hands that look to match:

Any information is appreciated!

Always reassuring to find another thst matches, but I’d look for one that’s a known model. The 824 on the caseback should be remarked for 810, so either missed remarking or the wrong case. Hands not common to 810, but you’ve found an example. Personally I’d say unless there’s a particular reason to want this, I’d look for an accepted version,

Thanks for the feedback Buddman. I actually like the hands on it so I went ahead with the purchase. I do not plan on selling so regardless it's a good buy for my personal use.

Would still like to know if it's indeed original from the factory. I read that Breitling has had some odd transitional, so more for knowledge of the unique history than anything else.

To add to the search, here is another example found online from RomainRea.

The watch features the same hands as mine, but the case back has the (I assume) 824 stamp covered and replaced with 810
