Can someone please advise if there are any red flags based on the pics below? I'm a Breitling newbie and it's not easy to get a lot of info on this watch.

Below are some of my observations:
The text below the applied B logo and the Breitling text is not Geneve but rather Unitime.
- From the pics of the net, this seems unusual however I did note a purported original model on this forum with such placement.
- However the seller purports this watch to be 1955 which may be a few years too late to be sans Geneve
The outlines of the countries appear to be faint so whilst the dial looks amazingly clean, even if it is a redial, it at least seems well executed.
Looking at the caseback, the model number has the 1 which is obviously out of line with 260.
Then on the rotor, the text listing the number of jewels which is a semi circle overlaps with the Breitling brand which again seems a bit sloppy.
- Furthermore it lists 17 jewels however I noted a separate forum thread which listed gold plated versions with 21 jewels.

Many thanks in advance for your time and expertise.

all perfectly correct here.
the world map “outline” changes in different angles and light, from almost invisible to clear and vivid, something no redial can duplicate.
watches destined for the US had 17 jewels (taxation issue)
