    When i saw this 69 pre moon Speedmaster, I just got to have it. This has one of the most beautiful tropical dial i have ever seen. It belonged to a friend based in Thailand.

    The overall condition is very nice and it is untouched. Minor dings are visible on the case. The DON bezel is decent which turns to a dark shade of blue under natural light. The lumes on the hour markers are all intact and the watch runs well. A really great addition to my collection.

    Many Thanks. It looks fantastic under the sun where the dial color turns to caramel. Cost me dearly but I guess that is what you pay for a tropical dial in this condition.

    That dial and that bezel (in fact the whole watch)::love::... has made me smile from ear to ear! I really like the lume on the hour markers. Lovely contrast with the brown of the rest of the dial. Very nice post to wake up to.:)
