It has incorrect or aftermarket hands. Those hand sets are for sale on eBay also.

Dial is aftermarket as well, if you take a look at the incorrectly aligned numbers at the min subdial.
Chronograph hands are at least repainted (haven't seen this bright yellow on my originals).

Doesn't the seller disclose this though in the listing...?

Techno: no the seller (in the Philippines, natch) says it's amazing and rare.


Mike is the winner, couldn't believe that the freakin' tach ring is UPSIDE DOWN :)) and there are multiple bidders on it. I didn't pick up on the dial being AM but yes it is - font on "Seiko" is wrong - all parts of "S" are the same thickness instead of the thin cross-strokes that it's supposed to have


I'll post how much it goes for in the end.

yes, you're right, he does. It's still amazing, though.

so how much did the bidding war resulted in? :D

Still going - tomorrow night is the finish. I was wrong - there are eight bidders currently, and it's at $57 currently.

I miss the lume dots @ 3, 6, 9 and 12

Or doesn't the Speedtimer-dial have the lume dots?

For reference, here's a pic of one I had, I believe it was all original.

I'll have to defer to the judgment of someone more knowledgeable than me. I always [i]assumed[/i] that my watch was all original. I could be very wrong! ;)

Don't worry Jeff, the JDM-Speedtimer version has no lume.
Your watch looks absolutely legit to me as I couldn't spot a difference comparing it to the one shown in the Museum Book No.9:


Cheers,

Axel
