    Hi folks - can someone please refer a good reference site with all the various modern dials and bezels? I know chrono Maddox but is somewhat outdated.

    In the meanwhile, is it safe to assume that this dial is from the late 80's/early 90's? The serial # is not engraved on the case. Also, is the bezel period correct as well? I do not have the serial number from the movement.

    Appreciate the help!

    I don't know of a site, but buying a copy of Moon Watch Only is worth the investment even if you buy only one Speedy. It'll give you all the info you need on every aspect.
    Having said that if you do buy a copy you'll end up wanting to buy several Speedies so it could prove an expensive move after all.

    Looks late 80s/early 90s to me too. Be careful to check that the serial hasn't been removed from the movement.

    This dial is last of tritium dials. Small "s".

    For a watch without serial on lugs it should be made befor 1990, but more of them hadve long "s" in speedmaster. Dial is late 90s. From 92 up.

    Bezel is correct for middle 90s watch. Tachy without accent and no drop 7.

    Yours probably has 861 movement and is from around 1995 or maybe little older. My guess.


    If you are buying vintage speedy(s) invest today and buy yourself MWO as suggested. At todays prices of 100-120eur that is best investment for your buying future.
