    I thought a fake twinsixty, but hey, anyway - it definitively looks like a fake to me.

    The second hand 'b' is right.
    The pushers are right.
    The naming on the dial is right as is the font.
    The hands are right.
    The case is very early and right for the era.
    I think we should have a concerted look for a matching example before striking this one out as a fake.

    My impression is that we have an Airborne Dial in a Chronomat case.
    I don't recall ever seeing this dial on a Chronomat.
    I believe only the Navi line had 4 dial models.
    This would also indicate the wrong movement for a Chronomat

    Here is the airborne dial.... The outer slide rule chapter clearly visible which is not present on the dial of the watch in question.
    The hunt goes on.

    And a few images of chronomat a year or two younger then the one in question care of chronomaster.co.uk. It shares many features with the earlier model like hands, case, pushers. No image of the back but that was under development over the same years so may be different anyways.

    I just went through Richter, did not see any 4 dial Chronomats.
    Could we have a Frankenwatch here. Chronomat case, Airborne dial modified (or a repainted dial to fit a 4 dial movement), and a Navi movement (or some other 4 dial array)?
