[Mods: I'm new to BreitlingSource.com. If the question below belongs in a different forum -- eg 'Vintage Breitling Discussion' -- feel free to move it there. Thanks.]

Hi all,
I was recently offered a Breitling Unitime 1-260 at a very reasonable price.
I am not at all familiar with this reference and thus would appreciate input regarding whether the watch looks legit.
Specifically, does the dial look original? (See four attached images below.)
I did quite a bit of Googling for this reference and didn't come across any 1-260s with a dial that has the outline of the world map in black and as prominent as on the 1-260 I was offered.
Is it possible that the dial on this 1-260 left the factory in its current form? Or is this obviously a refurbished dial in which the outline of the map was (probably mistakenly) accented in black?
Thanks in advance for your input and assistance!
Cheers,
David

that’s a (rather poor) re-dial offered from Germany some years ago.
