This Speedmaster 145.022-69 is a birth-year watch that I recently was fortunate to acquire. I love the looks of Speedmaster Professional s, but I am not sure about the "patina" on the bezel. It doesn't look as bad in the flesh but the dial has flaking as depicted in the photos below. I am considering getting a new bezel for it, but I thought I would get some opinions first. Thank you.
