Don't know what you are linking to so trey again.
Looks like he was trying to link to eBay item 291477840343
Movement, case and dial look okay, I could be wrong, but I think the winding crown and pushers though have been replaced. I personally have never seen a stainless steel case with a gold crown and pushers.

The crown and push buttons don't appear original to me IMHO.
Looks ok, the case is unfortunately not steel but not really a surprise for the period, the pushers and crown can be replaced to match the case, that would not be an authenticity issue, pushers and crown are wearing off, or you can refurbish-replate the whole case and pushers and replace just the crown....at the end,its always just a question of the price, I'm not sure it would pay off, its a well known brand that will add to the end price but still not SS and needs also work that will cost(or not if you dont mind the two-tone combination)....

Is it my imagination or is the chronograph bridge really somewhat newer, cleaner, fresher, shinier than the rest of the movement? Particularly the rest of the bridges and plates?!! And that is, after all, the bit with the company name on it!!!
In short: suspected Franken IMO. Even if all parts are B&M, I don't think that they started life in the same watch. At that sort of cash, you decide whether you want it (or whether you also believe it's cobbled together or really original). Any more and I think you are wasting your $$$.
