    That's quite a mixture! Must be a one off, according to the description it has an aluminium case and bracelet!

    Donor - which part??

    It'll probably be bought by someone who needs the dial and will part out the rest.

    Maybe the Transitional Frankenwhite was the beginning of the DNN bezel ;)

    Quite good as a donor watch, as the parts seem to be in good shape...

    Not sure I'd agree entirely with you there... might be a good donor if it's hilariously cheap ;)
    The dial looks pretty suss too - no step... a service tritium Ed White dial? And the hands don't match it - the minute hand is too long for an Ed White - see http://speedmaster101.com/105-003/ and you'll notice the tip doesn't quite reach the 1/4sec track whereas on this one...

    Even if the dial is authentic, the feet wouldn't fit an 861, so it's either incorrectly attached or it's an 861 dial meaning it's not meant for an Ed White in the first place

    Could've sworn I saw a step before, but looking on my phone now, it does look like a flat dial. I'll have to look again on a better screen.
    Narrow T's as well, which would be odd for a flat dial.

    Interesting that's it looks reasonably clean. Not a lot of grime around the pushers. I wonder if these parts have only recently become acquainted?!

    Looks pretty dodgy.
    As mentioned, the most important component - the dial, does not appear to be a step dial. Applied logo, no step, tritium ? All very suspect.

    I originally bought this watch I February this year...I had it looked at on here and from the photos I took, the consensus at the time was that it was an Ed White dial (could see the step dial in my photos) although the point about the feet was also made. The thread was back in Feb..

    I returned it to the seller and advised them to separate it out as parts, or list out the parts and let someone make the call....

    Yes, looking again on a large screen, you can see the step.

    It is what it is, a collection of vintage parts, thrown together. No good as a watch for a collection. It's worth purely the sum of it's parts and the final price will depend on how much two people need one or more of them.

    Agree - the seller was a nice guy, and not a watch expert. he took it back no problem. Hopefully it will be of use to someone who wants the parts...

    Unfortunately the valuable part - the dial - most likely has broken or missing feet as it would not otherwise fit the 861 movement. Bracelet definitely not a 1039 as stated.
