And likely a couple of 6309s over the years that looked the same. All looks in keeping. The crown being replaced is one thing that could raise doubts as to the rest but for me I think it is overall very good. Also a 7002 ring wouldn't fit the watch very well, can't remember if too tight or too loose. I tried once and it was one or the other I'm fairly sure.
Ive always been intrigued by the variations on the machining of the bezels, Ive noticed more than a few different ones but cant say anything specific to that early time period. Same for the 7548s which happen to interchange.

Imagine this: How many lines in the factory produce Rotating Rings ? Are the Machines producing the rings all set the exact same ? Do you really think they were all made at once ? Or Twice ? The watch is original and that is that Saki on Friday is better than Saki on Monday...

I think what we can gather from all this bezel discussion is that the OP has a special and early production 6309 with an uncommon and lesser known bezel. This alone would make it worth holding on to.

Is there an image showing the bottom of the bezel which sits close to the watch case. I've seen similar aftermarket bezels but they lack the small grooves as shown in the picture below.
