    I would guess yes, relumed. Looks a little lumpy, and covers the painted markers a little too much. But I'm hardly ever right about lume. Probably looks ok on the wrist though.

    Also, the dial is not original to the watch.

    @watchtinker I'm not sure about that - I've seen original 65's with B&P's, serials that are good but near the 65-66 transition, and have and the '66 dial with wider T's. Agreed that this one looks relumed but it also seems quite possible that Omega overlapped a little bit. Not that it's gospel but it seems consistent with the rest of the practice variations of that happened around then. Would love to hear others opinions though.

    Cheers---

    The serial number in the 22 millions is too low to allow a dial with wider T's.
    The problem is that all the recent attention to these timepieces has led to asubstantial growth of put-togethers.

    Cheers.

    Except on closer inspection the serial is out of my observations for a 105.012-65

    This is 2262 9765 and by my (admittedly amateur) reckoning, a -65 starts at 2282 xxxx.

    (http://speedmaster101.com/serial-quick-reference-to-78/)

    Now its close, but sometimes close is what the assemblers get.

    I dont know, but I am not buying.

    Thanks guys - I should've clarified that I'm not speaking to the authenticity of all the parts of this watch in particular (the pushers looks a bit long to me from the picture, for example), just that the dial having the T's from the 66 in a late 65 (all else being correct) shouldn't always illicit a cry of foul. I agree that this guy looks suspicious for a few reasons but I think if the other parts check out then I'm not sure if the dial is 'wrong.' But like all things it's good to do your home work and I agree with master @Spacefruit , I am not bidding. I'll see if I can get pictures of the '65's I'm talking about for you all to see.

    The dial alone, I would be on the fence but the fact this has the flat chrono second hand matching lume makes it more than a suspect to me.

    Yes, relumed and was not good job, tritium is a little bit more yellow, this looks like radium.

    47 bids and went for 4,120 Euros. Some people must have really liked it.
