One of the reasons I posted about the variations of 1163 and 11630 is for people to avoid thinking their watch is "franken" just because it doesn't fit the description exactly.

Don't sweat about the caseback, especially if it is properly inscribed inside.

Think of this:
What makes better sense, someone replacing the caseback of a 1163 with the caseback of a 11630 (why???) or Heuer using at some point in time the same casebacks in 1136s and in 11630s?

The caseback probably belongs to the watch and anyway it is not big deal.
