Heuer 1153 Help

Hi guys, I've really been wanting to pick up a Cal 12 Carrera for a while and I came across this example. What do you all think? Any flags? Wary as the seller is shipping from eastern Europe. It is said to be all original, including the dial, with minimum re-polishing. Looking to you guys for guidance, as I have next to no knowledge of Cal 12 Carreras and vintage Heuer in general. My watchmaker has warned me not to go for a Cal 12 as the parts are very tough to find, but they are such beauties!

Also attached is another example of Chrono24, minimal details but also gorgeous!
