    Not an expert, but the bezel is wrong and I do not see T swiss T on dial, maybe hidden under crystal.

    Looks quite nice. Dial without T is right for a -63. It is the dial A6 according to MWO.
    But I am sure, Achim can tell us more about this watch.

    Decimetre is one of the valid Speedmaster options, so its ok to have that, there's also several others.

    Glanced at this while waiting for train. I couldn't read the entire description. Looks like service crown and bracelet + end links are not original to watch.

    It's a nice Ed White, the condition seems good. Personally I prefer the classic DO90 bezel.
    The SWISS MADE dial is correct for an early -63 with 20 million serial.
    I also have a 105003-63, the dial is T SWISS MADE T (22 million serial).

    The only thing stands out to me is the balance bridge assembly which was switched out for an older and non-US version.

    You are correct. In fact the regulator appears of the old type and, should the balance wheel be of the same type, the whole group has been matched with a newer main plate and pallet cock. :confused:

    Dont be fooled with the grey bezel..

    I am not saying it is not original however I recently found out with a few aftermarket bezels that it is quite easy to fade them..

    What is the consensus in value, looks about right to me.

    yes, questions are welcome ! use PM . and rgd. the price : outside ebay and with bankwire it is $ 600 less in fees. and there are quite a few emails from members, who like to get this dial for an earlier model. in swaping for an T swiss made T plus cash. I have to think about that. kind regards. ac him
