    Well, the parts seem to be in decent condition, especially the case and bezel, and the dial has value on its own (though not nearly as much as a proper pre-Pro dial). The right offer, plus some hunting and a little extra cash for a dial and drop-end chrono hand, might net an OK watch.

    would be interesting to know, if the serial of the movement belongs to an 105.003 or not......

    As stated in the Ad:
    " This Omega has undergone a thorough inspection of accuracy, functionality and condition at our Omega certified service centre to determine the level of reconditioning required to meet our strict standards. It has also been checked against our records to ensure authenticity. "

    Against their records!..it MUST be all authentic then, except for some minor details, really no need to see the movement .. :)

    ..there is a "Professional" on the dial, it's so obvious that I first didn't notice it either :)
    Appeard from 105.012 on, so after 105.03s.

    The caseback is double-stepped, and the listing does state that it is a 105.003-65 which I assume they got from the inside caseback. Movement serial number notwithstanding, you at the very least have value in the parts.

    Now, the real question indeed is what's inside - AML, long-index Professional dial with wide Ts could be from a later 105.012 or 145.012 (thus fitting a 321) or from a 145.022-68 (thus fitting an 861).

    The first part I agree the second is the million dollar question [emoji23]
