Is this a new Chronomatic discovery (or not)? *PIC*

I have been sent this picture from a collector who was after my opinion as to its authenticity...

It comes from a source i would trust, but not being a Carrera expert i thought i'd throw it open to the forum to debate...perhaps it's a 1158 variant?

However the script sizing looks very similar to that on the 1163MH chronomatic and appears consistent with expectations, albeit a different sizing to the 1153 chronomatic (but then so to is the script different between the 1163T and MH chronomatic dials, re sizing).

Thoiughts and feedback very welcome!
