Default Gentlemen, a Quick Once-Over Please

Gentlemen,

I am attaching the following seller's pictures of three different Bellmatics, which are being offered at a very good price.

I have very little knowledge of this iconic alarm watch, so I hope the experts can point out to me if there are non-original parts in the watches.

Thanks and warm regards!

there is a 27 jewel dial so that could be interesting if there is a 27 jewel movement inside as well.

well i bought a few that needed work...and thankfully they all found new homes..but i have found that a nice original one will be less cost overall and less headaches...ones that have wrong parts and incorrect parts added...always makes me wonder why ....i would pass my friend...there is so many of these for sale at good prices...God Bless,John
also parts are very very hard to find and are very costly if u can find them too...i looked for a year for a 27 jewel dial and never found one at any price...
