    Below is a link to the OF advertisement from which I bought the watch. (Pics used with permission.) Please take a look. It contains forensic shots of the watch and full description (plus pics) of all the constituent parts. The watch has been worn in very light rotation since I purchased it. The only change of note is the changed bezel. I did not care for the chipped one seen in the ad, and changed it for the ghost. Dial, case and movement have been together since leaving the factory, I believe. This watch is something of a chameleon Speedmaster; a look which I find very appealing. The dial is spectacular. Lume plots are in good condition and the bezel (if you like ghosts) is a gem.

    I have bought and sold a number pieces here on OF and I should pop up with references when you search me. If not, let me know. The watch is in London. Happy to meet up. Postage/courier details to be discussed with prospective buyer. Watch will be supplied on the brown leather strap seen in the original advertisement. Other straps available by negotiation.

    My ask for this watch is £7695 net to me OBRO by PP or bank wire to my bank account.

    I'd like to thank OF for the space to advertise here and for the amazing resource and community that they facilitate. Please let me know if you have any further questions about the watch. Thanks for looking. Neil.
