subnuc, does your caseback look like this:
OMG! Yes, it is exactly like the one on top! What's the story?
Thank you for validating my certainty that my watch was not some freak of nature. I simply have never been able to find any evidence of a caseback like it up till now. Why is that, do you think?
Well, it looks like they are there. A couple things to note: first of all the bracelet on the watch in the photos is obviously not the original. It is a knockoff of the modern bracelet. My original bracelet is shown alongside the watch in the box in one of the photos. I also have a question for all of you concerning the tachymetre scale on the bezel. In virtually all pictures I've ever seen of Speedmasters there is the little "pip" (I don't know the actual term for the marking) above the first letter E in TACHYMETRE. As can be seen in the photos, my watch does not have that "pip". Can anyone shed light on that discrepancy? Thanks to everyone!
