    I am evaluating a 105.003 and am wondering if these close T markers are spaced correctly.
    They don't look quite lined up between the 28.2-28.4 and 31.6-31.8, but are close. Also does the swiss made look a little irregular. Finally, the rehut looks silver in this pic? I thought on a 105.003 it whould be black.

    Then again, maybe all correct??

    Thanks.

    the A7 dial in MWO looks similar with high Swiss Made and close T's, though the Swiss Made in this pic looks more like the A6 which doesn't have T's.

    any chance of a wider shot?

    if you're hunting for speedies, be sure to get a copy...

    edit: I see that you noticed the bezel and that it's a non-issue.. :)

    So an A6 with T's added. Is that legit or do you think dial tampered with from someone other than omega?
    The seller did mention it was more like a 2998 dial but with T's and that confused me.

    And do these look like the correct pushers (medium size?) for the Ed White?

    regarding the dial, mwo does make reference to an a6bis. a high Swiss made with T's added. I don't have a pic handy.

    pushers look ok, and I believe the correct ones are still available.

    is that movement number 20,522,xxx? that would be right in line for the -63.

    Thanks so much, I have looked in MWO and was thinking A6bis although in MWO the T spacing is a bit different than this one, but maybe that is to be expected as these were hand painted on after the fact.

    And yes, 20.522.
    You have made me feel a lot better that this seems legit. :)

    I recently acquired this 105.003-63, movement number 20522xxx, very early Ed White. It has the same high Swiss TT dial. A bit difficult to see because of the silver rehaut, but it is the same dial, I believe.

    Same uneven spacing. I believe these were the first TT prepro dials rushed into production when Swiss Law changed. Probably why spacing was not even

    Later on, the TT spacing was properly fixed.

    MWO confirms (page 73) that "The T countermark was gradually introduced from April 1964 either as an extra symbol on already finished dials or on new dials" (italics added). I believe the MWO picture shown below for an existing dial with the added T symbol matches both my and @Dgercp 's 105.003-63 early dials. image.jpeg
