ref. 140 20 is a correct reference for a "full calendar manual wind, running seconds at 6"
the dial is in surprising condition and I have never seen a diamond index version - but acript logo looks correct, serial number dates it to 1947.

I'm far from an expert on these and they are among the most faked pieces, but I like the fact that no "Datora" was incorrectly added to the dial and there are no Breitling logo engravings on the caseback, which would be incorrect too, but is almost always found on the fakes.

Do you have a bit more history about the piece - dial looks too good to be true if that watch wasn't lying in a safe for the last 60 years.
