Chapter ring looks a bit wide/large - could be covering the "MADE IN FRANCE" lettering that usually appears on these below the minute hashes on the bottom of the dial. Additionally, any 980.005 I've ever seen has profession(al) spelling along with Swiss Made on it.
The one and only caveat I will add is that I cannot for the life of me make out the spelling of profession(al)/(el) on the first execution (cathedral hour hand) shown for the 980.005 in the 1979 catalog when it first showed up (clear as mud on both OTM and Cal 11 websites). I've never seen one in the flesh either, it's a bit of a ghost.
